Who is Geoffrey Gamble, you ask?  And just who the %#@* does he think he is?

With more than 25 years of experience in performance improvement and transformational methodologies (as well as a number of other accomplishments that continue to confound my resume writers), I'm now lending my expertise to individuals and organizations who seek to create new possibilities and outcomes for themselves and those they influence.

Team building, life coaching, a new perspective on anything you're committed to... it all starts with a simple question, "Are you happy" with the way things are right now?

I've supported the work of Kaiser Permanente (first as an Employee/Labor Relations Consultant, then Senior HR Consultant, and now -- and still -- as Senior Consultant for Unit-Based Teams, Employee Engagement, and Culture Change), labor unions including Service Employees International Union (SEIU), Office & Professional Employees International Union (OPEIU), and the California Nurses Association (CNA). I've also cut my teeth through work with the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) and Federal Mediation and Conciliation Services (FMCS).

I hold an honors degree in Communications Studies (Film, Video, and Popular Culture) and Sociology from Virginia Tech.

My unique perspective incorporates a sense of realism, determination, and humor that can cut through the barriers you've experienced in life and give you a sense of purpose and concrete action to face whatever's next for you.

Comic novelist ("Breakfast with a Cereal Killer"), sociopolitical activist, and sometimes smartass... I might be just what you need to help you see what you can't see yourself, to uncover and explore a potential hiding in what you don't know that you don't know.

For now, while I establish this consulting thing, it's all FREE.

What have you got to lose? Your unhappiness, perhaps?

promise yourself...

the power of words...

what do you want to be when you grow up?

“When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.”

― John Lennon

on our client wish list...

Who'll be first?

make "one day" today...

One day I’ll find relief
I’ll be arrived
And I’ll be friend to my friends who know how to be friends
One day I’ll be at peace
I’ll be enlightened and I’ll be married with children and maybe adopt
One day I will be healed
I will gather my wounds forge the end of tragic comedy

I have been running so sweaty my whole life
Urgent for a finish line
And I have been missing the rapture this whole time of being forever incomplete

One day my mind will retreat
And I’ll know God
And I’ll be constantly one with her night dusk and day
One day I’ll be secure
Like the women I see on their thirtieth anniversaries

I have been running so sweaty my whole life
Urgent for a finish line
And I have been missing the rapture this whole time of being forever incomplete

Ever unfolding
Ever expanding
Ever adventurous
And torturous
And never done

One day I will speak freely
I’ll be less afraid
And measured outside of my poems and lyrics and art
One day I will be faith-filled
I’ll be trusting and spacious authentic and grounded and home

I have been running so sweaty my whole life
Urgent for a finish line
And I have been missing the rapture this whole time of being forever incomplete
"Incomplete" (c) by Alanis Morissette

an interesting way to start things off...

"I was a peripheral visionary.  I could see the future, but only way off to the side."

-- Steven Wright, comedian
 "Create your future from your future, not your past."
-- Werner Erhard, critical thinker
Let's try something.
I'll pick your brain, then you can pick mine. 
Together, we'll explore what's important to you, and after we've sorted a few things out, we'll design a new, (and until now) unimagined future for any aspect of your life that you say you've always wanted: your career, your business, your relationships, your finances, your legacy.
You promise to be honest and do what you know is necessary to get there, and I promise to make the journey exciting, enlightening, and fun.
