Q. What did you want to be when you were a little kid?

A. My mom says I loved being “on the go” as a kid. From concerts to roller coasters to the beach, I loved learning from new experiences and taking on new challenges. I can’t say I knew I would be an entrepreneur growing up, but in hindsight, I can certainly see the correlation.

Q. How long has your company been in business?

A. February 2024 marks five years.

Q. Can you tell us about why and how you started the company?

A. I started my career as a marketing professional and worked for various companies in the B2B space. Throughout my time, I kept seeing repeated leadership pains that had a real impact on organizations and the people who worked for them. Those experiences compelled me to do something!

Drawing from my experiences and those of my friends and colleagues, I was motivated to launch The Leadership Hospital in 2019. One of the most significant leadership pains organizations face is how their leaders engage their teams — from interactions to communications to management practices to leadership style. With that in mind, our network of Leadership Doctors works with organizations to move them from leadership pain to strength by developing stronger leaders.

Q. What has been your biggest business challenge in the past year?

A. The top leadership pains clients came to our firm for in 2023 included navigating remote work, fostering effective hybrid teams and scaling leadership capabilities across their managers.

As the firm’s founder, it truly is impressive to see the impact of our services — developing stronger leaders for stronger business around the globe. Five years ago, I knew we could change the lives of employees and workforces if we developed stronger leaders. And here we are, doing just that every day.

Q. What is one thing that makes you stand out from your competition?

A. At The Leadership Hospital, we frame our work with the vision of a world with stronger leadership. Our specialized network of Leadership Doctors uses our proven process to develop stronger leaders and overcome leadership pains. Our Leadership Doctors support lasting behavioral change and organizational sustainability as our clients navigate digital transformation in the workplace and seek to thrive in “the future of work.”

Q. What do you love to do when you’re not working?

A. I love adventures with my family. Whether it’s a quick day trip to the local springs or a getaway to the mountains — being in nature, disconnected from my laptop, and making memories is how I love to use my time.

Q. What’s your favorite place in the world you’ve ever visited?

A. I’ve had the opportunity to travel to some incredible places! I lived in both Cambodia and Holland for a couple of months. I’ve traveled across Europe and in the Caribbean as well. However, my favorite place would have to be the Canadian Rocky Mountains. My wife and I converted a Sprinter Van and traveled from Florida to Alaska one summer. We made many stops — from the Blue Ridge Mountains to the Grand Tetons to Denali. Along that eight-week journey, my favorite was the time we spent at Banff and Jasper National Parks. The scale of the scenery, the seclusion and the time unplugged (literally no cell signal!) was a dream. As the world becomes more digitized, we must prioritize time in nature and unplugged.

Q. What is one piece of business advice you would offer your LGBTQ+ peers?

A. Keep showing up — in your neighborhoods, in your communities, in your workplaces. It’s that simple. Our faces need to be seen, our voices need to be heard, our lives need to be recognized.
