Why GTL?

Ali Farquhar, Founding Principal, formed GTL Coaching & Consulting to help leaders step back and take stock of where they are, where they are headed, and whether their current path will take them where they want to go. Coaching gives executives a chance to see their context anew, examine their goals, take a frank look at their strengths and weaknesses, and gain insight into how they can most effectively meet the challenges before them. 

Boards seek out C-Suite leaders who are self-aware, think strategically beyond their role, communicate with vision and clarity, connect authentically at all levels of the enterprise, act courageously despite uncertainty, and have the confidence to develop future leaders as good as or better than themselves. Our mission at GTL is to help executives develop across all these domains so they become wiser, more fully-rounded leaders who can thrive and perform in a complex world. 

GTL primarily provides Executive Coaching services to biotech leaders in the greater Boston and Cambridge area.
