Author Biography

W. Timothy Gallwey was born in San Francisco in 1938. His international best-seller, The Inner Game of Tennis, first published in 1974, put forth principles and methods for learning and coaching that have since been applied to the achievement of excellence in the worlds of business, health, and education as well as in sports. For the past twenty years, Gallwey has dedicated most of his time to working in the areas of learning, coaching, and peak performance with major corporations and nonprofit organizations. His long-term clients include AT and T, Apple, Coca-Cola, and IBM. His Inner Game work has provided the seminal ideas for more than ten consulting companies that offer services in executive coaching, innovation, and the human side of learning and change management. His findings from his work with these enterprises are expressed in The Inner Game of Work (Random House, forthcoming). Mr. Gallwey can be reached at The Inner Game Corporation, P.O. Box 875, Agoura Hills, CA 91376.
