Gregg Thompson is a keynote speaker, author and executive leadership coach.
As a much-in-demand speaker, Gregg leads his audiences on interactive, highly-engaging learning journeys that are both educational and entertaining. He dares audiences to abandon many of their closest-held beliefs about leadership and to explore new ways of seeing, relating to and influencing others. He confronts audiences with their own biases, judgments and attitudes, and challenges them to replace these with fresh new perspectives and practices. He vividly demonstrates how leaders can make a major shift in their personal impact and use their natural strengths to master the art of leadership.

The book is an invitation to all leaders who want to make a significant shift in their attitudes, values and behaviors and become more coach-like in all of their daily interactions and conversations. The Master Coach forms the basis for the Leader As Coach workshop, which is used to equip thousands of leaders around the world with potent, immediately-usable coaching skills.
He personally coaches many of the most successful executives in the Fortune 100 companies and has worked in 40 countries in nearly every major industry.
