Gordon Montgomery

Performance Coach
Austin, Texas
Coach. Author. Ultra-runner. Vegan. Geek. Student/Teacher. Dad. Healer. (not in that order).

I coach leaders to see their purpose and live it.

Gordon's focus now is in guiding others as a performance coach to design and hack what he calls “evolved whole life experiences” through the vision that: “People are the next technology™. Whole life includes the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual balance needed to experience and excel with what truly matters in life, for individuals, groups, organizations and the planet. Gordon thrives on a challenge - the bigger the better. He has spent his life passionately asking powerful, visionary, inspirational, new questions, providing access to essential and unprecedented results in the areas of Innovation, Leadership, Strategy, Culture and even beyond to an evolved, joyful human consciousness.

Proud of his native Northern Irish home, Gordon traveled first to Southampton University, England to attain his BA degree in Linguistics, became fluent in French and other languages and then began his love affair with the enabling power of technology in people's lives. He worked in London and continental Europe before completing his Masters in Software Engineering at Napier University, Scotland, focusing on Human Computer Interaction. His move in the late 1990s to the USA enabled him to catch the business & technology consulting wave where he served and built businesses for 20 years working with the worlds top corporate and academic institutions.

Gordon is affiliated with the ICF & IAC coaching bodies, with the Neuroscience Coaching Institute and www.NLP.com and continues to expand his learning daily. Gordon received master coach training and now partners with an incredible international team of radical results coaches: http://carolinaaramburo.com/partners.
