Frequently Asked Questions

The McGrane Global Centers, formerly known as The McGrane Institute and McGrane Center for Personal Transformation, was started more than 45 years ago by my father, Bill McGrane Jr.  My dad offered several training programs focusing on building self-esteem, self-confidence and overcoming low self-esteem. After graduating from college, I began working with my dad teaching self-improvement courses. Following his death in 1991, I became President of the company.  In 2008 we changed our name to McGrane Global Centers.  We continue our great tradition of helping people make positive and lasting changes in their lives, through our personal development products and personal transformation seminar programs.

Bill McGrane III has more than 45 years experience helping individuals improve who they are as people and transforming the way they live their lives. He’s considered one of America’s foremost transformational coaches and an expert in building self-esteem and self-development training. Bill has mastered the art of creating an atmosphere of Total Unconditional Love (TUL), which is essential to establishing the level of trust needed to achieve true personal growth and change. Total Unconditional Love is the hallmark of the personal development training programs offered by McGrane Global Centers.

Bill McGrane’s credentials include a Business Marketing degree from the University of Cincinnati, exclusive training in the Disney development methods and diplomas and certifications from the more than 3,900 professional development seminars he has completed. He is a former member of the National Speakers Association and the former president of the Ohio Speakers Forum. Bill currently serves as the President and Director of McGrane Global Centers. He and his wife, Linda, have four children and make their home in Northern Kentucky/Cincinnati, Ohio.

Bill and Linda McGrane are not psychologists or therapists. Bill is a highly skilled peak performance, self-development and transformational coach with more than 45 years of experience. As a result of his work, Bill has acquired extensive skills to help people process through their life events in order to effect lasting and positive change through building self-esteem, building self-confidence and ultimately achieving self-actualization. Linda has more than 35 years of experience helping individuals, organizations, and families improve their communications.

Regardless of your field of expertise, the “Move Into Your Greatness!” will refine your skills and catapult you to much higher levels of personal productivity, achievement and satisfaction.

Here’s what makes us different over other personal success and development seminars:

A) Small group size. You won‚t be one of hundreds of people stuck in a hotel ballroom, when you attend our life changing seminars, our 2-day “Making It Happen!” self-improvement seminar or our 5-day program, “Move Into Your Greatness!”. We keep our seminars small so you get individual attention. Attendees bond with each other and support each other in their quest for true self-actualization.

B) The unique skills of Bill and Linda McGrane. Bill and Linda have extensive peak potential training and communications experience. You will get both male and female energy. Because they can “see” what others can‚t see, they are able to illuminate the unique qualities of a person ­ that the person can‚t see for themselves.

C) You will learn how to make your life improvements “stick.” When it comes to building self-esteem and maintaining a healthy level of self-confidence and personal drive, most people know a lot but can’t apply what they know. You will actually get the experience of the change. We make sure you leave our personal change seminars with the tools to build on and sustain the momentum started during the program.

D) We create an environment of Total Unconditional Love (TUL). Total Unconditional Love is our signature. We know it takes a lot of courage to examine your life and discover what’s not working. You need to trust that you can open up for your inquiry, with our guidance and support. Our nurturing, positive, and accepting environment allows you to safely work on what you want to change in your life. We never force you to say or do anything.

E) You only have to do this once. Our seminars are so effective, you only have to do them once in your lifetime. Your investment pays a return for decades!

If you need help building self-esteem, overcoming low self-esteem, building self-confidence, or just want to significantly improve yourself and your life for the better, our personal development seminars are just the answer you have been looking for! The truth is, no matter how many vacations you take, no matter how much “stuff” you buy, there’s no substitute for coming to our week long Move Into Your Greatness!” in order to achieve the long-lasting happiness, health, wealth, and well-being you are seeking. You only have to do this once!

Having said that, because our programs are so enjoyable and beneficial, people want to repeat them! Many have returned two and even three times. Some people even come back every year to jump start their accomplishments for the next year.
