Scott Blanchard is Principal and Executive Vice President of Client Solutions for The Ken Blanchard Companies, the company cofounded by his father, best-selling business author Ken Blanchard. An accomplished author in his own right (coauthor of Leverage Your Best, Ditch the Rest and Leading at a Higher Level), Scott represents the next generation of pioneering thought leadership on management issues.
The experience and innate business instincts Scott has developed help enrich his messages on coaching and leadership, and he turns that knowledge into plans for action, leaving audiences inspired and ready to achieve. Scott’s high-energy presentations get to the core of today’s business issues by exploring different facets of the corporate environment and culture. He speaks with honesty, conviction, and excitement concerning the key success factors for both individuals and their organisations.
Scott’s personal philosophy is based on what he sees as a fundamental shift occurring in the discipline of leadership—the movement away from a limited focus on individual goal attainment toward getting things done with and through others. He is passionate about leadership and its role in organisations, and centers his presentations on research-based material. Scott feels that his job is to create anxiety by shining a spotlight on practices that are not yielding the best results within a company, and providing practical solutions that will help improve the situation.
