You Can Learn to Be a Better Leader But first, let's talk about some of the misconceptions about leadership.

Myth 1: "Some people are natural leaders. I'm not."

Myth 1:

Being a leader isn’t decided by raises or promotion —or even fate of birth. Leaders can be people with a corner office or those just starting out in their career. Everyone can learn to lead, but a lot of people could just use some help getting there. That’s where we come in.

Myth 2: "Leadership training? Too formal. It's not for me."

Myth 2:

Great, that version of leadership training isn’t for us either. Leadership work should be honest, emotional and enlightening. It’s definitely not about upholding the status quo. We cater our coaching to be adaptive and bring out the very best in our clients.

Myth 3: "There's no point to leadership coaching."

Myth 3:

If your team already knows how to communicate well, you feel like your voice is already heard, AND you can lead confidently and courageously in your role—then great, you don’t need us! But if any of those struck a chord, we’re here to help get you or your team on track.

Meet Glenn Taylor, MS, PCC

Nice to meet you—I’m Glenn. I’m a jazz pianist and former marketer turned leadership coach, and the founder here at Skybound. Our mission is to help folks harness their sky-high leadership potential to create more dynamic, human workplaces.

We specialize in serving individuals and teams within the marketing, design, arts/entertainment, and technology sectors. Our clients want to be more courageous, authentic, and dynamic in their leadership—but often don’t know where to start. We help by providing coaching and training around leadership presence, confidence, authenticity, influence, emotional intelligence, presentation/speaking skills, creative problem-solving, innovation, and collaboration.

Glenn Taylor, Skybound Coaching & ConsultingWhy Skybound is Different:

We have the experience to back it up. We are certified as coaches in leadership.
We don’t promise to make you rich or famous. We’re here to help you make a bigger positive impact.
We’re not about magic bullets. Our research-based methods promote growth and change–but it’s up to you to do the work.
We think leaders exist at every level. Your title is unimportant to us. We just want to help you succeed.
We make leadership coaching accessible.
We leave formal and intimidating for someone else.
We think creatively. So you can lead creatively.
We keep it real.
We like to nerd out and have a lot of fun doing it.


What We Believe:
Short and simple—anyone can learn to lead. Leaders don’t have to be stuffy, traditional, or come with a specific background. The only prerequisites to being a good leader include having the desire, openness, courage to grow and change. And we believe we’re the best people to help foster that growth and teach you what it takes to be an exceptional leader.

Coaching & Consulting Style:
Our client work is a partnership. We work hard to create a comfortable and supportive dynamic for exploring new possibilities and strategies, while translating conversations into tangible action.
