Our Team

Sean M. Gallagher
Founder and Workshop Leader

Sean began his career at 3M in sales and later moved into marketing, product development and distribution management. Although 3M was his workplace for only ten years, it has guided his approach to creating high-performing teams ever since.

3M’s collaborative approach to creating innovative solutions for customers is legendary. Less well known is 3M’s long-term employee retention and high employee engagement scores. As a result, 3M’s stock has outperformed the Dow Jones Industrial Average in most years since the mid-1985 and its cumulative appreciation is 2x as that of the DJIA as a whole.

Sean combines what he learned at 3M with evidenced-based best-practices. The field of cognitive science has documented best practices for team performance and how to get team members to quickly adopt those practices.

It is the mixture of Sean’s 3M experience and his commitment to utilize only research-based best practices that help his clients reach higher levels of organizational performance.
