My Profile

The relationship between a coach and client is co-creative, meaning that we are equals and both have an active role. I am not a therapist, counselor or consultant. I am a trained and certified professional coach using honed communication skills to support you as a

detached thinking partner. Together we create more power for you to result in meaningful change and take dynamic actions towards your goals.Gary Gasaway - Conflict Coach

It’s About Emotional Connection…

I believe there is one thing in life that only those special possess – that is the true emotional connection with others.

It’s touching other people’s lives. That ‘touch’ is a powerful one that is through shared connection of trust, openness, encouragement, mutual respect, and caring. When you touch other people’s lives, your connection goes deep into their hearts and becomes a part of them – thus a part of you.

The impacts can change others to believe in themselves and others; have hope, share love, and put extra efforts into overcoming difficulties. Truly emotionally connecting to others is the understanding that we need each other.

We all have the opportunity to encourage someone who is discouraged, to share an experience with someone in helping them understand their own situation, to inspire others when they’re down about some kind of mistake or personal conflict. The awesome reality is that when you give away this type of emotional support, it will most often come back to you … through the emotional connection with others.

It is through those experiences of looking within and the touching of another that creates no other closer feeling of emotional connection.

Emotional connection is the focus of coaching. Through my coaching, we develop a co-creative relationship. We work together to find solutions to whatever difficulties you are facing. It’s truly inspiring you to transform unwanted conflict to achieve positive solutions.
