  • Gerry Wenzke has been a personal and professional mentor to me, not only through our coaching sessions, but in his real-life actions.  In my experience, he’s been the embodiment of “lead by example.”  He has a unique knack for bridging the gap between “emotional decision making” and “intelligent decision making,” and his students benefit from his insight and experience when faced with difficult or unpopular decisions.  It takes a clear head to make a good choice, and Gerry’s coaching sessions help students to hone in on the most important aspects of decisions at-hand.
