EXECUTIVE COACHING

Our balanced approach of championing and challenging helps deepen awareness, question assumptions, and unlock perspective.

We believe leadership is the ultimate lever for positive change and value creation. Gannett.Partners offers services to individuals, investors and enterprises seeking a personalized, transformative experience in a business context. We work with driven individuals who dig deep for what they want, and focus on executives who acknowledge the inner voices that challenge us to experience and achieve more. Executive Coaching - as opposed to Advising - focuses on the soft skills that the most effective leaders require today including cognitive agility, empathy, professional intimacy, leadership presence, resilience and effective communication. Coaching provides invaluable tools for developing high potential individuals who want to increase self-confidence, make better decisions, improve relationships and leverage their personal strengths. Together we'll spark new ways of thinking to enable you to find your own answers and help hold you accountable to the changes you want to make. GP Coaches are certified in Berkeley's Active Communicating® methodology and affiliated with Harvard Medical School's McLean Institute of Coaching. Our proprietary Integral Resilience Coaching® (IRC) methodology is an intentionally implemented, tech-enabled coaching solution designed to craft leaders who elevate company culture, employee retention and financial performance, and remain calmer and more in control. Our approach is complemented by best-in-class assessment tools that enable us to uncover key patterns of performance, including a leader’s strengths, risks, motivations, and underlying assumptions to enable transformational change. Coaching can be especially helpful in times of transition or uncertainty, and may be TAX DEDUCTIBLE depending on your situation. ⇓ Sources: 2022 BetterUp, Manchester, Inc.

Advisory

OPERATING ADVISORY

We help organizations grow, improve, and transform through our unique blend of building, operating, and scaling experience. 

Gannett.Partners aligns with change-minded executives to reimagine business models, push industry boundaries and delight ever-more-demanding customers. We partner with founders and incumbents as they envision the future, create new products and businesses, and strengthen organizational muscles needed to accelerate from seed to scale and beyond. Operating Advisory can bridge periods of transition, accelerate new ventures or address ongoing gaps in your organization’s skillset. We arm our clients and companies with expertise to define fields of opportunity, create powerful brand concepts, raise capital, launch and grow products and design operational structures to own the next horizon of innovation.

Investments

CAPITAL

Our unique DNA comes from decades of experience and a broad skill set. We partner with founders to drive breakthrough results.

Gannett.Partners invest selectively alongside leading managers, entrepreneurs, investors, and sports & entertainment talent, and collaborate with founders to consider every growth opportunity and customize programs based on each startup's strategic and organizational context. Investments focus on stage-agnostic venture deals. We are "fast followers" and seek to be small but strategic partners on the cap table. We deploy capital directly and as a limited partner.  Recent exits include Classy (to GoFundMe) and Thuzio (to Triller).
