About Us

"As we look ahead into the next century, leaders will be those who empower others." —Bill Gates

Cowboy Coaching began many years ago on a cattle ranch in Wyoming. My father taught me the basics of business with a Western flavor. The spirit of the Old West still lives on and the Code of the West can be used to build a better business environment. We follow this code while we are coaching and consulting. In business and life, there is a need for ethics — a sense of fair play and intellectual honesty.

Our Promise

As Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Cowboy Coaching, Gary has coached business leaders in business practices, public speaking, and sales techniques. He has developed classes, online courses, policy manuals, workshops, and programs that have transformed lives. Gary’s interview coaching has helped students receive job offers from many companies, including Amazon, Google, and Facebook.

Gary brings a touch of the American West to his approach to business. He has created, scaled, and sold businesses in the retail, sales, and service industries. He has been a volunteer with community organizations, including Habitat for Humanity, the Salvation Army, Cathedral Home for Children, and Kiva. Gary is also a veteran and served in the US Army Special Forces (Green Beret).

Gary says he is basically a cowboy from Wyoming who loves traveling around the world and meeting people from other cultures. Overall, he thinks his greatest strength is in connecting with people. Gary has a reputation for getting things done while empathizing with the needs of those around him. He enjoys life, nature, and people and is currently living in his fourth different culture and loving it. Others often comment about the way he is always quick to step in and help others, and he considers that to be one of his family traditions.

"Live by the code of the West. Be tough, be strong, but be fair." - John Wayne

The “Code of the West” was first described by the famous Western writer Zane Grey in his novel The Riders of the Purple Sage.

My home state, Wyoming, was the first state to adopt a code of ethics. “The Code of the West” was signed into law on March 3rd, 2010.

#7 -“Ride for the brand” implies not only loyalty to your organization, but also assumes that the individual will try very hard, above and beyond the call of duty, going the extra mile to do the job.

#10 – “To draw the line.” This means that you allow or accept something up to a particular point, but not beyond it.

"If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader." —John Quincy Adams
