High Five Career Coaching facilitates transformational individual, team, and organizational success among socially conscious and purpose-driven organizations. Our clients value having a trusted partner and confidante in their corner as they tackle complex challenges. We facilitate open pathways and craft a customized plan for each client’s specific circumstances that enables them to attain sustainable outcomes.
High Five was founded over five years ago by Mike Gellman – an author, coach, devoted dad, and adventurer with 15+ years of experience in nonprofits and Fortune 500 organizations.
Having grown up with a significant hearing loss and often finding himself on the “outside looking in” during his formative years, Mike developed a sensitivity for social service and social justice. He channeled his frustration and energy into a career-long passion for developing the inherent (yet often unrecognized) potential of individuals while creating cultures of inclusion that value and build upon the strengths of diverse professionals.
