Gap International was founded in 1978 by Ms. Pontish Yeramyan. The original mission of the company was to provide cross-cultural training for executives and their families relocating overseas to accelerate their cultural integration as well as impact their productivity.
In 1980, Ms. Yeramyan began a relationship with the Wharton School Applied Research Center, bringing her expertise in cultural integration to the management of family-held corporations, causing breakthroughs in alignment and effectiveness through communication between owners, family and non-family management.
By 1985, Gap's organizational consulting practice had expanded to include public corporations, partnering with executives and teams to produce breakthrough results – results that seemed unpredictable. The methodologies that were developed focused on breakthrough thinking, leadership, team and high performance improvement and made a lasting difference to the productivity of thousands of executives. During this period, Gap International won two Inc. 500 awards for being one of the fastest growing companies in America.
As Gap International continued to grow, the company actively invested in research and development to meet the emerging needs of its clients. Today, at the core of all partnerships is a relentless focus on the delivery of specific, measurable breakthrough outcomes, including building the kind of environment and leadership necessary to have these outcomes be realized. The company has invented a wide array of tools, diagnostics andprograms all focused on developing the capability to deliver dramatic improvements in performance, breakthrough outcomes and sustainable growth. It has also continued to expand its consultant base both domestically and internationally, working with leaders of corporations and government agencies in multiple capacities around the world.

Great way to develop leadership skills and carving your own path.Cons
Can seem almost "cult-like" in the way that they include you into the company. Don't get me wrong, the people here are extremely helpful and friendly, but it borders on overbearing the way they try to include you into the community.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Try not to "nice" everyone into being so included into the company. You have to allow people to do their own things.RecommendsPositive OutlookNo opinion of CEO
