Brian Strobel is an award-winning author, noted leadership expert and speaker on organizational change, operational excellence and servant leadership. He integrates his proven Helping You Lead Change From WithinTM principles into his speaking events and demonstrates the best way to stimulate change and achieve lasting results is to draw out the desire from within the individual and the organization.
Strobel grew up in rural Western Pennsylvania in constant pursuit of academic and athletic excellence. After paying his way through college, he joined the Marine Corps and earned a graduate degree in management before his twenty-fifth birthday. Service as a Marine Officer provided the opportunity to hone his skills in what some liken to the ultimate bastion of leadership. Upon leaving the Marines, Strobel worked for the government before joining the ranks of corporate management. Along the way, he picked up another master’s degree, this one in executive leadership where he studied directly under world-renowned leadership guru Ken Blanchard. Strobel is a certified professional coach (CPC) and maintains certification by the American Society for Quality as a Manager of Quality/Organizational Excellence (CMQ/OE). He's currently pursuing parallel careers as Executive Director and co-founder of Lexium Leadership Solutions and as the Director of Quality for a Midwest manufacturing plant.
When speaking to groups, both large and small, he brings energy and enthusiasm that invigorates the crowd and challenges them to rethink their thoughts on what constitutes effective leadership. He will work with your group ahead of time to consider your values, beliefs, goals, and objectives to deliver a talk that resonates with the audience and helps stimulate action.
Brian delivers keynote speeches that serve one of two primary purposes:
- to motivate and inspire others to action
- to provide tangible leadership tools for self-application
No matter which form of talk, Strobel conveys them in a manner that are both innovative and brave and always full of energy!
Academic pursuits and research for his books provides extensive insight into classical theories as well as the latest cutting edge ideas on management and leadership. Few peers rival the breadth and depth of his practical application through his twenty-five years of management and leadership assignments in the military, government, and across private industry. In his pursuit of continual learning, he has many times unlearned what he once believed to be true. But he believes without equivocation that leaders are in the people business and that they must lead with both their heart and their mind.
When not involved in professional pursuits or writing, he enjoys spending time with his amazing wife and his favorite dog by a quite lake in the forest, just north of Grand Rapids. He is a competitive amateur triathlete, Rotarian and active in church and community service projects.
Let Brian help make your event a resounding success!
