Gail Doby Certified Coaches (GDCC) are uniquely qualified to help interior design firm owners grow their businesses more profitably. Each coach is selected based on their training in business and/or experience as a business owner. In some cases, our GDCC specialists are life coaches, and some are trained in other coaching methods and programs. Our GDCC coaches also have life experience that applies directly to your needs as an interior design firm business owner.
Gail has been fully booked with coaching clients for several months, and she was frustrated that she couldn’t help all of the people that need and deserve assistance in solving business challenges. And in some cases, the design firm owner’s businesses aren’t quite ready to invest in coaching and consulting with Gail, but they do need help at a more affordable level. So, Gail decided to develop a training program to expand her reach to clients that need immediate assistance. Gail carefully selected the coaches because of their passion for helping business owners in the interior design industry.
We’ve built a 12-month Strategic Business Transformation (SBT) self-paced coaching program, and our coaches have been personally trained by Gail Doby in the program’s methodology. You’ll receive our GDCC’s valuable advice to apply the SBT coaching program to your specific business. You’re in great hands with our coaches.
