Guy Harris, Master Trainer & Coach
Guy draws on more than 20 years of combined professional and military experience when he consults, coaches, or trains in the areas of team and interaction dynamics, communication strategies and tactics, and emotional intelligence.
Prior to becoming a trainer and coach, Guy served as a Nuclear Engineering Officer in the US Navy Submarine Force, and he worked in leadership positions in both large and small business environments.
Typical client concerns prior to working with Guy are: forging a team from a group of individuals, moving a team past the conflict stage of team development, developing other leaders, expanding personal influence within the organization, communicating more effectively, and developing buy-in for new programs and processes.
With experience and training in technical disciplines and his further training in, and practical application of, human behavior and motivation principles, his unique skills consist of quickly connecting the technical and task accomplishment necessities of business operations with the human factors that often limit rapid implementation and results.
In other words, he helps you understand – and work through – the reasons why your relationships are getting in the way of getting things done.
Past clients have commented on how quickly Guy has been able to help them diagnose their ‘real’ challenges and create plans for overcoming them.
He writes the Recovering Engineer Blog, and he co-authored From Bud to Boss: Secrets to a Successful Transition to Remarkable Leadership with Kevin Eikenberry.
Guy has both Bachelors and Masters Degrees in Chemical Engineering. He was a qualified Engineering Department head in the U.S. Navy. He is a Master Trainer and Coach in the DISC Model of Human Behavior, and a Workplace Conflict Resolution expert.
