Dr. Gary Bradt
Change and Leadership Expert
“Adapt, ignite, and win,” is Dr. Gary Bradt’s rallying cry for success in a world that moves fast and doesn’t wait for stragglers. Bradt increases the capacity of people and organizations to rise to the challenge of change by delivering highly customized presentations that address the unique objectives of each event.
Dr. Bradt is an author, clinical psychologist, leadership consultant, C-Suite executive coach and speaker on the topic of adapting to and leading through change. He first gained international attention when Dr. Spencer Johnson, the renowned author of Who Moved My Cheese? chose him as the leading speaker on the message of that blockbuster bestselling book which has sold over 20 million copies worldwide.
As a speaker, what makes Dr. Bradt special is his ability to engage audiences: his warmth, his humor, his content, his ability to get people to absorb his message and put it to use. More than anything, Gary is genuine. His storytelling, examples and exercises are authentic and bring his principles to life in a way few other communicators can. Because change happens in our personal lives too, Gary Bradt delivers a powerful message on that front.
As a C-Suite executive coach, Gary works at the intersection of people and business. He understands both, and helps leaders execute business strategy through people and helps leaders chart the course for their own career as well. He holds up a mirror and offers practical steps leaders can take to improve their leadership effectiveness, and the effectiveness of their people and their organization. Just like with his speaking, his goals are practical and positive behavior change. As a coach he is straightforward and direct. He tells leaders what he thinks, not what they necessarily want to hear, with only one agenda: to move them and their organizations forward and to help them accomplish their goals.
Bradt began his leadership development career with a respected leadership development consultancy, where he helped client companies launch proven leadership strategies and transformational processes which turned change and tough times into an opportunity to transform themselves and take performance to the next level. He helps organizations adapt to new technologies and government regulations; inspires innovative thinking as industries consolidate; helps employees quickly adapt to major shifts driven by mergers, acquisitions or reorganizations; and gotten customers and employees alike to embrace a new product or service line.
