As its founder, Gail Angelo launched The Craigen Group out of a deep love and respect for her maternal grandmother, Catherine Craigen. Catherine grew up in Paisley, Scotland. She lived by modest means, but hers was certainly not a modest life. She lived into the meaning of her name signifying “rock.” Foundational to the family, she was steady in the face of adversity, open and honest with her deep wisdom, and willing to share the insights that grew from her full and meaningful life.
Catherine had a beautiful way of building trust with people, bringing out the best in each of them respectively, and creating a way by which they felt valued and valuable. In true Celtic tradition, she unearthed something sacred and meaningful in every heart she touched.
The Craigen Group focuses on executive coaching, leadership development, and organizational change. We are firmly anchored in the values true to our namesake; values that support our clients and their teams in leading from the very best of who they are and living into their purpose, serving from their strengths. For over 30 years the team at The Craigen Group has practiced a unique ability to connect deeply, engage meaningfully, and support our clients in the process of experiencing significant and transformational change for maximum impact.
