I believe everyone has an abundance of creative energy, and I want to help you unleash yours.
I am Garland McWatters.
Every day I meet interesting and excited people like you, of every generation (Gen Z, Millennials, Gen X, or Boomers), who are motivated to find meaning and satisfaction in their life at home, at work, and in their communities. Like you, they want to be empowered to unleash their creative energy as they work, play, and live.
At home, I want you to have
- loving relationships
- a fun, safe, and happy environment
- a sense of well-being and stability
At work, I want you to have
- a sense of meaning and purpose
- a sense of pride and accomplishment
- wholesome relationships
In your community, I want you to have
- a feeling of connection and community
- opportunities to participate, engage, and florish
- an environment of mutual respect in which everyone can pursue life, liberty, and happiness.

I love learning and sharing what I’ve learned. I am a seeker, with a core belief that everyone goes about her or his daily life just wanting to be happy, proud, comfortable and successful. I’ve seen this yearning in every personal and professional experience I’ve had. I know that’s why my personal and professional journey led me to consulting, training, and ultimately to writing.
I’ve been a minister, a college assistant professor, a broadcaster, and a sales person. I enjoyed a career spanning 15 years in Oklahoma’s renowned Career Tech system. And since 1994, I’ve been a self-employed leadership consultant and author. I even took a brief foray into politics. I was my party’s nominee for the U.S. House of Representative in 2000.
Like many, I can show college credentials: B.A. in Biblical Studies from Oklahoma Christian University, an M.S. in Mass Communication from Oklahoma State University.
But those were just jumping off places to get my real education–my daily interaction from the shop floors to the executive suites.
