Gale Mote Associates has made the difficult decision to pause business due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  I will continue to monitor the situation and follow CDC guidelines to determine when it is safe to re-engage with my clients.

My passion for teams and my commitment to helping organizations get healthy remain my guiding principles.  I firmly believe that now is a time to focus on caring for myself and my family so that I can continue to successfully and safely care for others in the future.  

It has been my privilege to work with many teams over the years and a defining characteristic of the best teams is humility.  Humble teams have members who are willing to put the greater good above themselves.  Gale Mote Associates wishes to honor its values and knows that the right thing to do at this time is to keep everyone safe and healthy.

These are unprecedented times for all of us. Our choice is to go forward with hope, compassion and grit. Use this time to grow your skills and learn more about yourself and your team.   Be inspired.  Stay healthy.  Be the best version of yourself that you can be.

Gale led the Community Foundation Leadership Team through the exploration and development of the characteristics of a cohesive leadership team.  She is a skillful and insightful facilitator. The process  transformed our work as a team, and we emerged much stronger and definitely more cohesive. —Les Garner, President and CEO 

Of the consultants I’ve worked with in the past, Gale far exceeds the others in every category. Her commitment, wisdom, drive, enthusiasm, and wit are exactly what we have needed and will continue to look forward to. —E. Michael Farrell, Chief Operating Officer, First Security Bank and Trust, Charles City, IA

  • “This year I will be redirecting, not retiring, my business and focusing specifically and primarily on working with new and established teams to help them become more cohesive and more productive. To allow more time for working with my teams, I’m going to be reducing the suite of products that I’ve offered in the past, specifically, designing workshops, speaking at professional organizations, membership organizations, and conferences. However, I have provided a list of Trusted Colleagues that I would love for you to visit because I know that they will be able to provide exceptional service and drive positive results for your organization.Redirecting my business will allow me to focus on what brings me the most joy, to follow my passions and leverage my expertise and skills. I want to focus on teams and help them become their very best. I hope you will join me on this journey.”
