The GAMA Foundation provides field leaders with research-based solutions that increase productivity and profitability -- delivered in a way that is easy to implement.

The only organization of its kind, the GAMA Foundation is funded completely by field leaders, for field leaders.  That means our research is free from any single system bias.  We look beyond what works for one person to find the consistent practices that define high performers across the profession.  And, we provide the volume of insight so that you can drill down to specific solutions for your market.

Our research is future-focused so field leaders have the tools they need to be proactive, not reactive to the trends impacting their business.  Our research can be broken into:

The Now:

 This series focus on current best practices that differentiate top performing field leaders, and provide the building blocks for organizational success.  Studies include  Finding the Right People; Building the Right People; Keeping the Right People; Building Top Performers:  Best Practices in Coaching and Mentoring; and our popular eBook series.

The New:

 These studies look beyond current practice to identify new strategies needed to transform agencies so they can compete in a changing world.  Studies in this series include:  A Study of Leadership Competencies; Attracting the Right People; The Power of Teams.

The Next:

 These studies look outside the industry to identify the markets, demographic and economic forces that will impact the industry's future, and provide field leaders with the vision needed to thrive in that new world.  Studies in this series include Firm 2020; Advisor 2020.

The GAMA Foundation's work is building the field leader of today and tomorrow and providing our profession with the tools needed to navigate and thrive in a changing and occasionally chaotic environment. But, our work would not be possible without the generosity of our contributors.   Over the GAMA Foundation's history, dedicated field leaders have committed to investing in the future of the industry.  Their dedication to our mission -- Funding Research Based Solutions for Leadership Success -- makes these resources possible.   Our contributors make our vision possible.
