Christopher D. Kolenda, Ph.D., founder of the Strategic Leaders Academy, helps cyber security and health care organizations build winning teams by working with them to get the 3 BIG things right: Leadership, Culture, and Strategy. Since 2014, his clients have grown by over $25 million and counting — an over 30:1 return on investment for them.
Chris is a West Point graduate, internationally renowned combat leader, retired Army Colonel, published author, and business leader who brings his passion and unique background to a mission that is personal and close to his heart — working with organizations that help to protect and empower those who are not in a position to protect and empower themselves. As a sexual assault survivor, he brings humility, compassion and deeper meaning to the timeless habits of Leadership, Culture, and Strategy.
The author of the critically acclaimed book, Leadership: The Warrior’s Art — which has sold over 50,000 copies, Chris draws from a storied military career (see CNN Jake Tapper’s bestselling book, The Outpost) and extensive practice and scholarship, to help leaders and teams create and maintain an unassailable competitive advantage.
