Craig Simms

CPC (ipec), Energy Leadership Index Master practitioner (iPEC), John Maxwell Team Certified

I bring over 25 years of experience in research, sales, marketing, product management, and medical affairs from leadership roles in traditional, biotech, and start-up pharmaceutical venues. I believe that the secret to success is not by doing things the way others have done them, but by connecting with the passion of the people you are serving. 

My zeal for coaching was revealed when I hired my first coach in 2003.  Working with a coach allowed me to thrive through start-ups, reorganizations, and downsizings. I now coach business leaders who wish to take their performance to the next level, raise team success, or pursue a new career direction. 

My coaching approach is to meet the client where they are, and partner with them to enlarge their awareness as individuals and leaders. I believe that executive coaching is life coaching for leaders.

I hold a B.A. from Miami University in Oxford, OH, and a master’s degree in public health from Walden University. My CPC and ELI-MP are from the Institute of Professional Excellence in Coaching (iPEC), and I have been a certified speaker, coach and trainer with the John Maxwell Team since 2016.
