“I’ve personally benefited immensely from Ryan’s coaching and I have also benefited from him coaching leaders on my team.
Ryan has been an invaluable partner in developing high performing teams and bringing out the best in leaders across the business.
Ryan is always sharpening his ability to create new insights, ask the right questions, and encourage and challenge in the right way.”
“Ryan has played a significant role in helping me get to the next level in business- both from a productivity and prosperity standpoint.
His coaching has been extremely valuable in helping me better harness my vision and mental energy, giving me the ability to develop strategies that have helped bring my company to the top of our industry.”
“Ryan Bailey provides so much more than guidance and coaching. His work is transformational.
I have been a leader of numerous organizations and of varied teams. Just when you think the work is on “leading teams,” he first deals with your ability to authentically lead yourself.
I was well underway to chasing a corporate career and had a solid foot into my community as a respected leader. I thought I wanted Ryan to help me move to the next level and be more effective and intentional in my choices. He did just that. Not what “I” saw as my next level. He first guided me back to my God-centered purpose and vision. Made me realize how far off the path I was and gave me the courage to get back on track to that purpose and vision.
He is not going to just “coach” you and tell you what you “want to hear.” Ryan is not afraid to confront the fact that we are not who we are, and that we are not who we think we are.
He is magical in guiding you back from the lie of being the person “who other people think we are.”
A year later, I am living in a different city, have a stronger family, greater peace and working daily in my purpose toward work bigger than me. I have never been so happy. Take the journey. I promise you will be transformed.”
“I must say that at first I was quite skeptical of executive coaching but after sitting through an intense 2-day workshop followed by some great one-on-one coaching sessions, I was totally hooked. Especially since I realized how I was able to learn, recognize, and deal with some of my own challenges and opportunities but most importantly how to deal with all the various personality types on our team. Ryan introduced us to Myers-Briggs which helped me tremendously on recognizing how I have to adjust to other people’s style in order to be successful and accomplish what I need to versus the other way around.
After 26 years in business and leading many great teams, I had no idea how much more I had to learn not only about myself and my social awareness as it pertains to relationship management, but also about how I can benefit and how my team can benefit from using all these tools and especially emotional intelligence to get to work much more efficiently with all different types of personalities.
It has definitely improved my leadership ability and the overall excitement and spirit of not only my team, but our overall department and organization. Thanks Ryan for all your patience, insight, intuition, and help.”

His coaching not only allowed me to transfer my vision to action but also helped me continually refine my vision.

“I’ve had the awesome pleasure of knowing Ryan for over 20 years, so this goes beyond the normal recitation of a recommendation. He’s been a devoted friend and confidant who truly understands that sometimes the only way for one to ever truly find oneself is to get completely lost.
Ryan has walked the walk and is a mature and sentient professional filled with compassionate counsel leveraging his rich life experiences, who stands ready to walk alongside anyone to help find safe passage out of his own personal wilderness.”
“Ryan is all about authenticity. He has helped me refine a genuine leadership approach that blends my strengths, passions, values, and integrity.
This has helped me pursue the flourishing of my team, resulting in material growth and commercial out-performance over successive years.

My team has also benefited from the broad toolkit and experience Ryan brings to high performing teams.”
