Meet Glenn Taylor, CPCC Certified Professional Co-Active Coach

I’m a professional inspirator, passionate about inspiring individuals and organizations to reach higher potential and bigger impact. As a certified coach, consultant, trainer and speaker, I accelerate leadership, careers, organizational effectiveness and team performance.

I specialize in leadership development, career advancement, and team performance.  I have a background of over 11 years in marketing and leadership, most recently as Chief Marketing Officer at the Houston Symphony.

I founded Skybound Coaching & Training, a company and blog focused on providing empowering content, professional services and resources, including the free eBook “5 Steps to Higher Potential & Bigger Impact: Leading with Clarity, Purpose, Power & Play.”

I have my Masters of Science in Organization Development and Leadership, and have completed the James P. Shannon Leadership Institute for Nonprofit Leaders, the League of American Orchestras Executive Leadership Program, Rice University’s Leadership Program for Professionals, and coursework and certification through the Coaches Training Institute.  I have my ACC accreditation through the International Coach Federation (ICF), and I am certified in the Hogan personality assessment, the Korn Ferry Leadership Architect competency model, and the Korn Ferry VOICES 360 assessment.

I am also an accomplished jazz pianist, and would love to play your event or private party (solo, duo or combo).  In my free time, I enjoy volunteering, swing dancing and performing an occasional magic trick.
