Gideon Culman is a coach who understands that — whether you’re creating a billion-dollar business, leading your team through turbulent straits, or simply transitioning from a successful job into a truly fulfilling career — your character, your conversations, and each of your actions are constantly putting in place the building blocks of your own personal legacy. Gideon works with leaders who are ready to make their mark and who refuse to leave a legacy that lacks intention.

Gideon connects with his clients in unique and hilarious ways to outline and enact a powerful life vision that cuts through the major obstacles — no time; stubborn opposition; habitual self-sabotage — and holds them accountable to fulfill their boldest dreams. Gideon holds a Professional Certified Coach credential from the International Coach Federation. He has trained coaches through Accomplishment Coaching’s rigorous Coaches’ Training Program in New York, both on Wall Street and at the UNFPA, as well as in Malaysia.

Gideon is also the host of an internet talk radio show called Legacy Talk Radio. The show serves as a platform to learn from visionary leaders who treat life as the vehicle to create their legacy on purpose.

Gideon previously worked in international development. He earned his bachelor’s degree from College of the Atlantic in Bar Harbor, ME and two master’s degrees from St. John’s College in Santa Fe, NM. He lives in Washington, DC with his wife who absolutely adores his cooking. Find out more by emailing him at!
