Our Core Values
Core values are those foundational beliefs, those guiding principles that govern everything you do. Glenn Smith is the founder and President of Glenn Smith Executive Coaching. Here is how he talks about the core values that drive our coaching practice:
“My wife and I both grew up in family-owned businesses. We know firsthand the rewards and the challenges of being a business owner. After more than 25 years of experience in business and organizational leadership and having owned two businesses myself, I have learned what it takes to achieve your dreams while living out your values. Over the years, I have worked with hundreds of business owners. Here are the values that govern everything we do.” - Glenn Smith
Our Clients Come First
We believe that acting in the best interests of our clients is what’s best for us in the long-term – when they succeed, we succeed.
We believe that lifelong learning is essential to ongoing success. We seek to know and share the best practices of executives and business leaders from around the world. We seek to learn something new for every client and from every client.
We believe that integrity, generosity, and character trumps everything else.
We believe in free-market economics; people thrive where there is a common rule of law, minimal regulations, and minimal taxation.
Success For All
We want all people to succeed; our clients first, then ourselves, our partners, our vendors, and even our competitors, because we believe that’s what’s best for everyone.
Our Ultimate Purpose
Most importantly for us, we believe that we have been created by a divine creator and the highest purpose of man is to love and worship him.
How Do We Help Business Owners and Leaders?
We Help Business Owners Get Unstuck
Do you want to go to the next level, but it's taking you too long to get there? Do you feel like you're working extremely hard but not smart? Are you getting the results you want in a timely and efficient manner? We help owners make more money, work less, and enjoy life more! Get the results you want faster than you expected. We help them clarify their direction, simplify their lives, and maximize their results.
We Help Business Owners Work Less
Are you working very long hours for a nominal return? Do you enjoy your family or your life because you are a prisoner of your business? Would you like to spend time doing the things most meaningful to you?
We help busy entrepreneurs to slow down, catch their breath, reflect and map out the critical changes they need to improve their businesses and lives… then our process holds them accountable for those results.
We Help Business Owners Face Reality
Is it hard to admit that your business is not where you hoped it would be now? Are you spending all your time and talents on an “OK” business that struggles to make ends meet? We help owners and leaders see that they are 100% responsible for the good and bad in their business. We teach entrepreneurs how to work “ON” and less “IN” their business.
We Help Business Owners Focus
Do you have focus or discipline in your business to help it grow? Do you have systems and processes in place so the business can run without you, or are you the system? We help owners focus on what’s most important and create more meaning in their lives. We help owners create & refine systems so that their business will consistently fulfill its promise, profitably and do it without the owner.
