Gannett.Partners offers 1:1 services to individuals and "in-residence" partnerships to enterprises seeking a personalized, transformative experience in a business context. Executive Coaching, as opposed to Advising, focuses on the soft skills that the most effective leaders require today including empathy, professional intimacy, leadership presence, 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. 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. 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. Our philosophy is anchored in UC Berkeley's Active Communicating® coaching methodology, based on the belief that the Coach is a Catalyst, and all good managers must have excellent coaching skills. 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. ⇓

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 focus on multi-stage 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.
