Bill Gallagher is a business coach and master facilitator with over 30 years of entrepreneurial and executive experience. Bill has spent the last 15 years coaching and training others in leadership and performance and previously led 4 companies of his own and been a partner or executive in 2 others. Bill discovered the Rockefeller Habits and Scaling Up 20 years ago, has used them in his own companies.


Today, Bill coaches leaders and teams across more than 25 cities in 11 countries and the host of the Scaling Up Business Podcast. He is a passionate and playful presenter and his clients, at all stages, share a hunger to grow successfully with an openness to new approaches and thinking.

Bill Gallagher is the guy you want around to sustain growth, when you need to build consensus, or even when things explode and you need to get the team in action. Working alongside an entrepreneur, Bill is able to inspire people and companies, and then get them pulling together.

An experienced entrepreneur and executive, he has created and run companies and business units ranging from startup to over US $500 million. His full profile in on linkedin:

Happily married for over 20 years, Bill and his wife, Lori, live in the Oakland hills. Their grown children, Jack and Sophie, are also entrepreneurial and live nearby. ”

Founder Bill Gallagher is the son of a linguistics professor. As a child, he learned three languages and lived around the world. He moved from California to Hawaii, Barcelona, Zurich, Jerusalem, and even lived the back of a VW camper for a time.

This means that he has a rare ability to find a “common language” among diverse groups of people. He is able to appreciate different perspectives, alter his own language accordingly, and then find the common thread that can bring a group together. No matter their own background, everyone who works with us is trained in this style.

Bill Gallagher has a great intuitive understand of the needs of high-performance groups and can help bring out deep and powerful content and sharing from group members. I highly recommend them for any group sharing retreats and experiences, team building sessions, as well as individual and group performance coaching.

For instance, Bill Gallagher once led a series of workshops in Bangkok that included Thai entrepreneurs and Buddhist nuns. Much of the workshops were conducted through interpreters. Bill was able to find common ground and speak into the shared concerns and values of Thai entrepreneurs and Buddhist nuns.

Most importantly, perhaps, is our ability to encourage a group to buy into a shared vision.
