Professional Development with Insight

Driven by insight, focused on outcomes: that’s how we approach leadership development and talent management at the Gerald Hannah Group.

Our goal: give your managers and leaders the tools and skills to inspire your employees, spark their passion, and kindle the kind of performance that achieves measurable results.


Our management consultants draw on their extensive experience and research in executive coaching, behavior psychology, leadership development, and diversity recruitment and training to cultivate an organizational culture that delivers sustainable results.

We’ve worked with Fortune 500 companies, small businesses and higher education institutions with best practices and the latest research findings to transform top talent into high-impact leaders.
