After serving a Fortune 50 corporation for 25 years in responsible management positions in technology, manufacturing, planning and marketing, including a stint as the leader of a pilot re-engineering effort for a $4 billion unit of that corporation, Hank Epstein entered the entrepreneur ranks in 1990 by creating The Quality Coach!®. Together with his life and business partner, Jeanne Gladden, Hank is living his deep commitment to help people connect their personal fulfillment with business success. He believes that the 21st century will offer unlimited possibilities for individuals to derive fulfillment from their work.
However, they must learn to let go of their traditional expectations for security in and constancy of the workplace. They must embrace change and, whether self-employed or not, become 100% response-able for adding value to their customers, delivering services at the lowest possible cost, and continuously improving the work processes in which they participate. His coaching practice is dedicated to helping people adopt and operate out of the 100% response-able mind-set with competence and confidence.
Hank was educated as a chemical engineer and was drawn to the disciplines of communication and leadership early in his career as he confronted the challenges of helping ordinary people produce extraordinary results in the application of complex chemical technology to the production of commercial products. He was a trainer, coach, and facilitator, by avocation, in the corporate world long before pursuing this calling full time as an entrepreneur. He delights in bringing his self-acquired, practical knowledge of philosophy, psychology, systems thinking and business to bear in the service of a group or individual grappling with the challenges of adjusting to and thriving in a rapidly changing environment. His coaching sessions bristle with an energy that reflects his passion for supporting the personal growth of his clients and their discovery and experience of their own greatness.
