Biography
Gail M. Stockton is an innovative leader in the field of Training and Organizational Development. She has over 28 years of experience combining both e-learning with leadership development to create high performing work teams. Gail utilizes technology, when it is available; to teach knowledge and concepts to all levels of an organization and follows it up working with the leadership teams to make sure the expected performance is applied and maintained. She has experience in the creation of performance management tools, high value employee identification, succession planning tools and extensive instructional design expertise.

Being a pioneer in the field of e-learning, Gail has worked with development teams to create computer-based simulations that taught employees how to use their workstation to do their job. She has experience in change management and was chosen to lead several key initiatives at United Airlines as the company transitioned to a global carrier, became employee owned, underwent tremendous growth, experienced the pain of 9/11 and exited from bankruptcy. She is fascinated with technology and remains current in the field looking forward to when nearly everyone will access whatever resource they need from the palm of their hand.

It was no mistake when she was nominated to Who’s Who Among American High School Students. She continued to excel in corporate America. Gail has presented at the National ASTD Conference, “What’s Keeping Your CEO Up At Night?” and is sought out to make presentations at sales meetings and to design and facilitate large scale events. Classroom presentation skills for leadership and management development are also a passion, particularly when they concentrate on coaching skills or Emotional Intelligence.

Gail has spent her entire career servicing the customer or member through employees. She was the Director of Training and OD at the Alliant Credit Union and spent over 26 years at United, being promoted numerous times in the Corporate Training Department. Gail received her BA from DePaul University and has continued her education by being certified as a Senior Professional in Human Resources and a Gallup Strengths Coach. She is a member of ASTD and SHRM. Her team’s work was recognized by Training Magazine and selected as Editor’s Choice in the 2004 Edition of Top 100 Training Organizations.

Gail was featured along with others in the book Saving the Corporate Soul & (Who Knows) Maybe Your Own by David Batstone as he declared his eight principles for creating and preserving integrity and profitability without selling out in corporate America. Her chapter entitled “Valuing the Worker,” speaks to her belief that all companies should create a learning environment.
