Nathan Ott

Co-Founder & Chief Polisher at The GC Index


With over 20 years of working with business leaders to get the best from their talent, Nathan has always thought there was something missing. Subsequently, through years of conversations with business leaders he realised he was not alone. This notion that ‘something was missing’ is the key stimulus for the original The GC Index research.

Nathan is the vision and driving force behind The GC Index. He has a fundamental belief that everyone can make an impact in their world and has created a global community of GC Partners and GCologists that is committed to fostering the impact and contribution from everyone around the globe, whether they are a global Fortune CEO or a child in a developing country.

As a Polisher/Game Changer Nathan wants to be valued for his relentless belief that anything is possible, and things can always be better. He is constantly pushing The GC Index team, GC Partners and Clients to enable frictionless and empowering interactions between HR and Business leaders so that everyone is valued to deliver positive business outcomes.

He is the co-author of two studies: The DNA Of A Game Changer and The DNA Of A Game-Changing Team and published Coaching Me, Coaching You (a-ha) with Dr GC as requested by the global GCologist community.

Outside of work Nathan has a love for Hot Yoga, Liverpool Football Club, WhatsApp and tasting the red wine from every country he visits. He has a wonderful (and very understanding!) wife and three magical children who fuel his daily energy.
