TRANSFORM YOUR LEADERSHIP. TRANSFORM YOUR TEAM.

A podcast with Stories from leaders on their growth and transformation.

 Mike Morris, CEO, Topcoder

 The team at Gallaher Edge is unbelievably powerful. The workshops set up everything we wanted for individual development and growth, and the coaching just solidifies it. There were real, immediate, and hugely impactful changes to how we worked together after just our initial engagement, and I didn’t even think we had big “problems” as a team. But the Gallaher Edge team has really helped us up our game. Working with them has confirmed my belief that the best way to grow an organization is to develop the team you have rather than spending time trying to get a new one.”

At Gallaher Edge, we work with busy leaders to help you get your arms around the challenges in your organization. We work with you from the inside out, helping your executive team have conversations you didn’t even know you needed to have. We’ll help to increase self-awareness, team alignment, and shared accountability until your organization runs like a well-oiled machine. Organizations are just people. Gallaher Edge helps you learn what it takes to be more profitable by truly putting people first.

Welcome to Gallaher Edge. We create transformational change in your business through meaningful and impactful human experiences.

We focus on creating alignment from the inside out, whether it is alignment between inner intentions and outward impact (self-awareness), or aligning your organization around a competitive strategy that gives you the edge you need to succeed. Envision a world where each human maximizes his or her individual potential, then creates groups that maximize their collective potential.  That’s a world we want to live in, and the world we are working to create. We believe in focusing on what is possible (anything), and recognizing that there are multiple paths to move forward. Let us help you find your path.

About Us

A MESSAGE FROM THE FOUNDER

I founded Gallaher Edge when I realized how important it was to me to grow from the inside out, and help others do the same.

Gallaher Edge is founded on the values of the Power of Choice, Progress Over Perfection and Uninhibited Teamwork. This company, like me, is a work in progress, something that every day, I accept exactly as it is while never stopping work to progress it further.

Laura Gallaher

OUR CORE VALUES

POWER OF CHOICE

Acknowledging choice allows a purposeful life and increases accountability. We help you explore the idea that every single thing you do in life is a choice. Once you are exposed to this fact, it opens a world of possibility.

Uninhibited Teamwork

Self-awareness and openness allow us to truly collaborate. We cultivate radical openness that enables us to get real work done by getting real. Without genuine collaboration, teams are just groups of individuals. Teams that are aligned and in sync feel the benefits of flow, synergy and productivity.

Progress over perfection

Something done imperfectly is better than nothing done flawlessly. We operate better when we expect not perfection, but progress. We are never done developing. Always getting better. Always evolving. Leadership and self-awareness are things to continuously practice, just as one would practice yoga, meditation, medicine, or law. Practice leadership.

 Suneera Madhani, CEO, Fattmerchant

 I hired Laura to help prepare our team for 10x scalability by increasing team cohesion. She helped our team build trust, improve communication, and align around a common strategy to achieve our future vision that still guides us today. Also, as a CEO of a company experiencing massive growth, I’m so grateful to have a better understanding of how my own thoughts and feelings drive my behavior and my decisions. Even though crazy and amazing things continue to happen around me, I feel more confident and grounded, and I thank Laura for her contribution to that!

Client Testimonials

Terrence Donnelly, CEO, Teeps

We hired Laura to help us when it felt like our whole company might break down because we couldn’t communicate effectively enough. She came in as a teacher, mentor and facilitator to help us identify the lapses in our communication and gave us tools to work through the hardest conversations so we could actually get results, make decisions and move the company forward. She is an expert in understanding people, what makes them tick, how to communicate better and have healthier interactions. If you are a CEO who is passionate about what you do, and you’re seeing how communication issues on your team are holding you back – don’t wait – work with her now to get your team aligned and have productive conversations with your executive team.”

Radley Griffin, MD, Owner/Founder, Griffin Concierge Medical

I signed up for the [Human Element] wanting to add “effective communication” to my professional skill set. I left the training with more knowledge about myself than ever before and a desire to dig even deeper.”

 Lee Odess, Former COO, UniKey Technologies 

 Working with Gallaher Edge truly is a competitive advantage. They offer growth and development that is real, impactful, and makes a difference. Working with them truly changed our company, and on an individual level, executive coaching with them was one of the best things I’ve done for myself in a long time.”

 Tony Thornton, President, Turbine Technology Services

 [The best part was the] creation of an environment where each individual felt comfortable describing their own weaknesses. This same environment allowed each member of the team to receive and accept constructive criticism from other team members.”

Patrick Begley, VP, Turbine Technology Services

The workshop was excellent. It exceeded expectations and has immediately improved the management team dynamic.”

Ashley Smith, Former COO at Code School

Gallaher Edge creates a warm environment for leaders to engage in open conversation.  They make us think harder about the company we’re building and the culture we want.”
