Matt Gagnon is a professional Co-Active coach certified by the Coaches Training Institute, credentialed by the International Coach Federation, a member of the Forbes Coaches Council, keynote speaker, author, and brings 15 years of corporate sales and leadership experience.
Matt believes in living a life aligned with your values. We all have up to five core values – that when honored, evoke the best in us. The problem is that many people live life with values defined by others leaving one feeling empty and like they are never enough.
Matt was living what looked like a successful life with a six-figure job, nice house, nice car, nice clothes, etc. Behind the curtain he was actually spirally out of control resulting in chronic illness, depression, addiction, and an attempted suicide. His lifestyle eventually resulted in disability and losing the only career he had ever known.
After leaning into his faith, Matt stopped being a victim and chose to see his adversity as a call to adventure. With a purely grass-roots effort he built a thriving international coaching business. He focused on protecting his supply lines (prayer time, sleep, nutrition, fitness, inner circle of friends) and rediscovered his core values. He chose to write his own comeback story.
