Dr. Gary Bradt speaks about adapting to and leading through change. He has had clients from all over the globe including IBM, American Express, FedEx, P&G, Citigroup, CVS, Marriott among many others.
He gained national attention in 2000, when he was chosen as the leading speaker by Dr. Spencer Johnson, the renowned author of Who Moved My Cheese? An Amazing Way to Deal with Change in Your Work and in Your Life. He had to deliver the message of this blockbuster best-selling book which has sold over twenty million copies worldwide. Through ‘Cheese’ thousands of people were able to get acquainted with Gary’s extraordinary ability to cut through their frustration and fear and get to the heart of the matter. He even provided powerful tools that help them adapt when going through change.
Even before he was asked to be the leading speaker of the ground-breaking book, Gary had established a strong following as an executive coach and speaker. In 1987 he began his leadership development career with a respected leadership development consultancy. At the consultancy he helped client companies launch effective leadership strategies and transformational processes that helped turn change and tough times into an opportunity to transform themselves and raise performance to the next level.
His mantra – adapt and ignite! – is a rallying cry for success in these tumultuous times. Gary is able to help organizations adapt to changes such as new technology and government regulations. He inspires innovative thinking as industries consolidate. He helps employees quickly adapt to major shifts driven by merges, acquisitions or reorganizations. He even helps get customers and employees alike to embrace a new product or service line.
Gary is very genuine and gets the audiences engaged through his warmth, humor, content. He is able to get people to absorb his message and put it to good use. His storytelling, examples and exercises are authentic and help bring his principles to life in a way that is not paralleled by other communicators. Because change happens in our personal lives too, Gary also delivers a powerful message on that front. As a father he learned to cope with one of the toughest challenges of all, a child’s chronic, life-threatening illness, and shares his personal narrative with audiences when appropriate.
In addition to his speaking he is a clinical psychologist, leadership consultant, C-Suite executive coach and an author. He has written ‘The Ring in the Rubble: Dig Through Change and Find Your Next Golden Opportunity‘ which has earned praise from reviewers and fellow change and leadership experts.
As a C-Suite executive coach, Gary works both with 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 offers practical steps leaders can take to improve their leadership effectiveness, and the effectiveness of their people and their organization. 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.
Dr. Bradt earned his BA in psychology from Duquesne, University in Pittsburgh. His doctorate in clinical psychology at Hahnemann University and Hospital in Philadelphia earned him the “Excellence in Professional Psychology” award in 2007. He is only the second graduate to be recognized with this award at the time. The award emphasized his contributions to the field of professional psychology through his achievements as an author, leadership consultant/coach and world-class speaker.
