How Do You Want to Strengthen Your Leadership?

“I Want to Show Up with More Courage and Authenticity"

“I Want to Show Up with More Courage and Authenticity

Leaders are made, not born. Everyone can learn to lead. But does the typical "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 Engagement and Innovation in Teams"

Do you find it difficult to truly engage groups and teams? Is it hard to get others to participate actively, think differently, take ownership, or embrace change? Learn to foster more engagement and innovation by leading through creativity and play.

Meet Glenn Taylor, MS, PCC

Hi, I’m Glenn, President/Founder of Skybound. I help ambitious professionals and executives become high-impact leaders who are more brave, human, and innovative.

My clients want to lead with greater courage, authenticity, and connection while tapping into more creativity and playfulness. I specialize in serving leaders and teams within technology, professional services, marketing, media, and arts/entertainment. I offer 1-on-1 coaching, team coaching, training, assessments and facilitation services.

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 proven 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 authenticity is crucial to leadership. I believe in the power of connected communication, creativity, and playfulness to engage others. 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). I’m also a jazz pianist, swing dancer, LEGO fan, superhero geek, and a red cape wearer.  In fact, you may notice a red cape in the logo of Skybound.  I’m inspired by what it symbolizes: courage, playfulness, and service.

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.
