UB Group (Unified Brainz) celebrated the glorious careers of prominent leaders from around the globe, leading by example with resilience, diligence, and perseverance on the occasion of World Environment Day on the 5th of June 2022. The launch showcased the first edition of the unique dark mode Coffee Table Book, “Who’s Who of The World,” which was unveiled during its virtual event. This exquisite ceremony saw the presence of trailblazers from various industries who have scaled massive heights of success and have shared their passion journey.
Timi Gleason, a Top Leadership Coach in California, is one of a kind. She has worked in Human Resources large corporations, is a Strategic Planner, an Organizational Development professional, and has several published books on Amazon. Her most recent book is Becoming Strategic: Leading with Focus and Inspiration. And Timi iscurrently co-authoring a book on Conversational Intelligence and has plans in 2023 to write a book called The Art of Business Collaboration.
Timi was born and raised in San Francisco, California. Being the oldest of four children and self-sufficient from the age of 17, Timi has always been a free thinker. She earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology, Sociology, and Consumer Sciences. Rather than go to graduate school, she has many valuable certifications in coaching, strategy, systems thinking, and creative problem solving.
This optimistic lady created her first professional job while finishing her classes at university. The job market was very tough at the time. She saw an opportunity that she suggested to the State of California. They agreed, and hired her and ten years later, she switched again, and became one of the first females to be hired into management in the male-dominated daily newspaper business. This job turned out to provide a huge turning point in her career as a Director of Human Resources during the many regulatory and legal changes regarding sexual harassment, drug testing, and equal opportunity employment from 1986-1991. During this time, she was also a wife and mother. She had a huge job and a family. As her career evolved, Timi moved from Human Resources to Organizational Development and then, to Leadership Coaching. Since 2011, she has been a Marshall Goldsmith certified Stakeholder Centered Coach and global team member.
Timi grew in influence and reputation as her clients brought her more and more complex business problems and her opportunities to help her clients increased. Her business acumen and change management abilities developed with experience, which added to her marketability. She would stay about seven years at a company and then be recruited out to another career experience. It was easy for her to change industries. She knew her transferable skills and each new industry welcomed her eclectic background.
Today, “Coach Timi” (as her clients call her) helps high-potential leaders who work in global corporations get ready to be promoted. They are senior executives in Legal, Information Technology, Marketing and Sales, Business Unit Management, and Engineering jobs who generally need to strengthen their business acumen, to broaden their scope of influence, and to work on their visibility and communication styles.
Timi also just recently finished a five-year coaching contract, during which she worked with civilian and military leaders throughout the world (South Korea, Japan, Europe, the Middle East, and the United States) to explore their leadership abilities and hone their leadership styles.
As a hobby, Timi had been studying Western Numerology since 1985. Largely, she was only creating charts for family and friends. But during the Pandemic, she saw a remarkable synergy between the popular Gallup’s Clifton Strengthsfinder assessment and another popular assessment called the How to Fascinate test. The clients LOVED these two assessments. Then by popular demand, she added Strategic Numerology. Over and over, these three assessments were changing lives and offering hope during the Pandemic. Timi is also a regular contributor of answers on Quora.com, a global question and answer forum. During the first six months of the Pandemic in 2020, the sorrow and bewilderment on Quora was loud and clear. Timi felt terrible. Young people were unsure why they were alive? Middle aged people were wondering how they would survive or provide for their families? Some people were sick and stuck in bed, not dying but not working. Many people wondered if it was over for them. To know more about Timi, check https://whoswho.world/ or to nominate email, [email protected]
