Cory McGowan


Change is inevitable. Transformation is intentional.

If you see life as an adventure and if you are ok being at the edge of your comfort zone, my coaching will likely be a good fit for you. If you aspire to have those qualities, we should talk as well. Key characteristics of the work I do with my ‘adventure partners’ (the people I coach) include paying attention to their embodied intelligence, incorporating the lessons and pace of nature as a way to slow down and find out what is really important, as well as strengthening your sense of being enough in this world and self-compassion. We build solid foundations so that we can always be ready for the next adventure!

Experience as Coach

Additional Work Experience

My whole professional career has been in Japan in international work environments. I have mainly worked in the education, services, and hospitality/tourism sectors. The majority of jobs I have had were newly created positions, or jobs that I ended up transforming through job crafting. My responsibilities have ranged from single contributor in sales and operations roles to working at the C level managing relatively large teams in multiple locations.

What Clients Say About Me

“Cory is an exceptional coach. He has the ability to listen deeply and ask probing questions that allowed me to reach my own conclusions. I have had several coaches over the years, I found my time with Cory to be the most productive. I never felt he had an agenda to push or need to demonstrate his knowledge about business. He did what coaches do best and that is guide those they work with to a higher level of performance through reflective questions and their own observations.”
Charles McJilton, CEO, Second Harvest Japan

“At the beginning, because the concept of coaching was new to me and above all, because I was skeptical in myself, I did not expect or think I could improve in the areas I wanted to improve in. However, this coaching has greatly exceeded my expectations and I am happy with how far I’ve come. I was surprised that with just a little push and guidance, I could become not only the employee, but the person I wanted to be.”
Sakura, Services Company HR

“I had no previous experience with coaching. I didn’t realise how much time I would be talking. Hearing me say things out loud makes me examine thoughts more critically, as if they have to be supported or defended in some way, whereas a thought in my head can just glide around unchallenged. It might sound like a simple thing, but I appreciate how much you listen and think about what I say and how I feel about it, and it doesn’t feel like comments or suggestions you make are canned responses to common problems. I’m very satisfied with the coaching so far and I feel like it is helping me make progress.”
Cian, Services Company Sales Manager
