Naturally evolved from Founder & Certified Coach David Giuliano’s twenty-five years as a self-employed consultant in the automobile industry, where he specialized in conflict resolution and problem solving. That solid foundation of experience coupled with the extensive training he received at the Institute of Professional Excellence In Coaching, has given him multiple opportunities to successfully serve his clients.
David’s unique background organically designed his coaching process by helping small business owners to be successful. He has the ability to analyze a business from the core starting with the owner’s concerns, all the way through management, to employee motivation, logistic issues, and bottom line productivity. David understands that in most cases you, the business owner, have the most knowledge about your company and he uses your thoughts to personally unlock your vision. You actually generate new possibilities through his carefully guided process catered to each individual and the challenges they wish to address. It simply makes sense to hire the coach who’s also a business owner and has been there.
