After spending several years as an employment law trial attorney, he realized that by the time his clients called him it was too late, damage was already done. Gerry spent several years developing an approach to leading and managing people while empowering them to positively navigate conflict and other workplace challenges before it became "too late" for them. He has helped countless groups move from dysfunction and discord to productive and harmonious teams.
