How Do You Want to Strengthen Your Leadership?

“I Want to Lead with More Courage and Authenticity"

“I Want to Lead with More Courage and Authenticity

Leaders are made, not born. Everyone can learn to lead. But does the traditional "corporate leader" not feel true to you? Or do you ever hesitate to step up or speak out? Find your authentic presence as a leader, and embody more courage & confidence.

“I Want to Communicate in Ways that Connect and Influence”

“I Want to Communicate in Ways that Connect and Influence”

Do you want to lead but struggle with the "people side" of things? Is it hard to create connections with others, or to get people to listen or take action? Learn the skills of connection, emotional intelligence, and how to persuade or influence others.

"I Want to Foster Innovation & Engagement in Teams"

Do you find it difficult to truly engage teams? Is it hard to get others to participate actively, think differently, or embrace change? Learn to foster innovation and engagement by amplifying the innate creativity and playfulness in yourself and others.

Meet Glenn Taylor, MS, PCC

Hi, I’m Glenn, President/Founder of Skybound. I'm a jazz pianist and former marketer turned leadership coach, devoted to helping ambitious creatives and innovators become high-impact leaders.

I serve rising leaders, executives, and entrepreneurs working in technology, marketing, design, arts/entertainment, and the nonprofit sector. My clients want to build influence and foster innovation by leading with greater courage, authenticity, and connection while amplifying the innate creativity and playfulness in themselves and others.

Glenn Taylor, Skybound Coaching & ConsultingWhy I’m Different:

I don’t promise to make you rich or famous. I help you make a bigger positive impact.
I don’t preach magic bullets. I promote research-based methods for creating growth and change.
I’m a leadership fanatic, with training at the master’s level.
I understand powerful communications, with expertise in marketing and branding.
I have organizational experience, at the executive level.
I’m a certified coach, not an untrained mentor.
I’m a creative type, with a background in the arts.
I’m approachable and playful, not intimidating or formal.
I keep it real.
 You get the real (and nerdy) me.


What I Believe:
I believe anyone can learn to lead, and that leaders don’t fit some stuffy corporate mold. I believe it takes courage to grow and change. I believe it’s a myth people simply arrive at success over night. I believe coaching can evoke real transformation in others. I believe working with a coach shouldn’t feel formal, gimmicky, or artificial. And I believe leadership development can be relatable and fun.

More About Me:
I combine over 10 years of experience in marketing/communications with 8 years in coaching, a Master’s in Organization Development and Leadership, and a PCC credential with the International Coach Federation (ICF). In addition to being a jazz pianist, I’m a swing dancer, Disney & LEGO fan, superhero nerd, and I enjoy performing the occasional magic trick.

Coaching & Consulting Style:
I see my work with clients as a partnership. Clients find me to be approachable, authentic, curious, and focused.  I create a comfortable and supportive dynamic for exploring new possibilities and strategies, while translating conversations into tangible action.
