Ken Weichert (Sgt. Ken®), CSP

Resilience Expert. Entrepreneur. Leadership Coach.

Leadership is simply influencing others. In order to do that, you have to build relationships. Success in leadership is not in how we advance ourselves, but in how we advance others. That is achieved by serving others, and by adding value to their lives.

It is Sgt. Ken’s personal and professional mission to live by the following teaching strategies:

  1. Achievement comes, when we do big things by ourselves.
  2. Success comes, when we empower followers to do big things for themselves.
  3. Significance comes, when we develop leaders to do great things without us.
  4. Legacy comes, when we put leaders in positions to do great things without us.

It is time to build a legacy!
