Gael transitioned her Executive Coaching Practice from NZ to a successful launch and recruited coaches in the UK. In 2002 she was invited to coach coaches for a global organization with over 650 coaches worldwide and developed a skill for remote coaching in order to meet demands and maintain her business clients and her priority to live a balanced lifestyle. She learned, that to coach virtually and remotely was more effective and her clients got greater results in less time and the opportunity cost for all was favorable. She could coach more leaders, with greater flexibility and on a wider choice of devices. This enabled her to adapt to differing time zones as she traveled and follow up with progress more often to close the gap between learned and applied skills in real time.
