Hi, I'm Malcolm Gurley

Here's a bit about me:

Malcolm Gurley - Leadership Trainer

Business associates describe me as a dynamic, passionate, and engaging team builder.

I have over 30 years of leadership experience in fortune 100 companies with a proven track record in operations management, continuous improvement, and executive leadership. Throughout my career, the immense importance of “Leadership” in driving change and business success became very apparent to me.

Following my corporate career, I wanted to help executives become better leaders and to reach their full potential. So I started up my own company and I became a licensee of LMI Canada, Canada’s premier leadership development resource.

The business environment has changed more in the last year than it has in the last decade combined. Leaders must adapt to retain employees and grow their bottom line. I help leaders and their leadership teams to remain relevant and excel even in difficult times. Clients achieve measurable success in areas such as sales growth, profitability, cost reduction, on-time delivery, quality improvement, and innovation.

My clients have realized compelling returns on investment. For example, a recent financial client realized an ROI of 15:1 through increased revenue, a manufacturing client 20:1 through cost reduction, and a construction client 12:1 through efficiency gains.

Aside from my business career and the drive to impact leadership, I was a coach for competitive soccer for many years with my teams achieving winning records, playing at the Ontario provincial level, and many players receiving full scholarships for their university education. I am a passionate coach in both sports and business and I bring this experience and purpose to my leadership programs.

Our clients choose us because we are laser-focused on:

  • Planning and executing goals to drive success.
  • Prioritization techniques to ensure high payoff activities are addressed every day.
  • Self-assessment and reflection to ensure internal leadership development.
  • Leadership skills for effective team building, delegation, and communications.
  • Achieving a professional balance based on personal values and one’s life mission.

The clients we have generated the most success for are:

  1. Manufacturing and Distribution
  2. Construction
  3. Professional Services (Financial, Healthcare, and Planned Services)

If you or any of your leadership team would like support in navigating these unprecedented times and ensuring continued growth, profitability and retention I would be happy to have a conversation.

My Approach

I’ll work directly with you to establish high impact areas for productivity improvement, refine goals and objectives, and step through a proven program over the course of several weeks with spaced working sessions to achieve results that stick. These changes are realized quickly and continuously build and improve through to the end of the program.

Goals are established for both business-related areas and personal leadership development. Therefore, positive outcomes impact both your organization and the personal outcomes of leaders who go through the program. In fact, the impact is not only realized for each person going through the program but there will be a cascading impact to other employees in your organization.

A Bit About Me.

As much as I’m a professional by nature, I’m not without having many personal interests. My major hobbies include music (a huge Led Zeppelin fan), sports, cooking, traveling, enjoying the great outdoors, and spending time with family!

Reflecting back on my love of music and having attended so many live concerts over the years, here are some of the performances that stand out to me: Lynyrd Skynyrd at MLG, Styx at Massey Hall, Harry Chapin with guest appearance by Gordon Lightfoot at Massey Hall, Journey and Foreigner in Manchester, Supertramp at MLG, Alice Cooper in Las Vegas, and CCR at MLG (my first concert ever when I was 12 – went with my older sister). Great memories!

Having personal interests are very important to living a happy and balanced life, which is vital to being a successful professional.

Too much work can lead to burnout that will hinder your mind and body from functioning at its very best
