Doug Krug - Co-Found of the Institute for Unlearning and 3-time author
Today on Executives After Hours, Doug Krug stops by to chat about his life of random activities. Beginning with learning everything about leadership from training dogs in the military. Doug has also owned a bar in Germany, a record store, and a hotel for 120 days. Doug’s third book, The Missing Piece in Leadership: How to create the future you want, is in its second printing. He has co-authored two books, Enlightened Leadership: Getting to the HEART of Change and Leadership Made Simple. Enlightened Leadership is in its 31st printing. Doug is host of his talk radio show entitled, “Leading Change Without Resistance” airing at 1690AM in Denver. Podcasts available.
He also served as part of the MBA Program at Johns Hopkins University’s Division of Public Safety Leadership for 15 years. He also served as part of Executive Development Programs throughout the federal government. This includes IRS, FBI, DEA, Veterans Affairs, CDC, NNSA/OST, Secret Service, Office of Personnel Management, NASA, Department of Interior and Department of Labor.
The essence of Doug’s work is built around the premise that the core of what makes an effective and inspiring leader cannot be taught, not in the traditional sense; it has to be brought out from within.
Doug’s primary role is helping top executive teams create and sustain the focus and alignment essential to successfully deal with today’s most pressing leadership challenges. This includes three Governor’s Cabinets, the top executive teams at FBI, Medicare/Medicaid, U.S. Marshals and all 50 Admirals in the Coast Guard; as well as numerous executive teams in the corporate arena.
Through ‘enter-trainment’, Doug provides inspiration and information, giving participants tools that are immediately applicable. Groups actively participate in their own discovery through simple yet powerful exercises.
