Charlotte, NC – Corporations typically hire people who have served in the military because of their leadership experience, specialized skills, discipline, ability to think under pressure and crisis management.
Gerod King served 20 years in the U.S. Army Reserve and retired as a senior non-commissioned officer at Ft. Knox, KY in 2007. He was a convoy commander in the Bosnia Armed Conflict, 1997-1998. He spent 29 years in the U.S. Justice Department and retired as a senior special agent in 2019.
Today, Gerod is an executive coach, trainer and speaker. He founded Gerod King & Associates LLC (GKA), because he wanted to continue helping others be better leaders and professionals. GKA draws on his experiences from military leadership and federal law enforcement to help individuals and organizations maximize potential to achieve results.
“Since establishing GKA, I’m quite pleased with the positive feedback I received from many people after coaching and/or training sessions,” says Gerod.
“I grew up in the military and federal government, so launching my own business was uncharted territory and scary. For many years I trained people not to be afraid of new challenges and endeavors. Now, I am following my own advice when it comes to GKA,” says Gerod.
“An organization is only as good as the people leading it. It will rise or fall based upon the competence level of leaders calling the shots. Additionally, good leaders will take ownership, hold themselves and everyone else accountable. So, how do you make better organizations? Make better leaders. That’s a proven way to achieve results and that’s what I’m endeavoring to do,” says Gerod.
