Eric Kaufmann has been guiding leaders and executives since 2000. His earliest lessons in leadership, though, were in the water, not in the office – he was a Scuba Diving Instructor in his college days. It’s there that he refined the ability to organize and influence people to learn new skills, work together, venture into the unknown, and have fun in a process that can also be dangerous.
20 years ago, Eric left his corporate role as a marketing Director at Corning Clinical Labs to establish an executive development consultancy, and work with leaders to think more creatively, decide more effectively, and relate more wholeheartedly. In fact, he describes his work as an unrelenting commitment to results with an unyielding regard for the human spirit. His clients include Facebook, Verizon, Sony, Dr. Bronner’s, Sunpower Corporation, Navitas Organics, and Petco.
Eric is the author of Four Virtues of a Leader. He’s also a Fellow and an official Thought Leader at Harvard’s Institute of Coaching, a former Vistage Chair and Speaker, and a speaker for TEDx.
