Dr. Blake Leath
Founder of Leath Group, LLC — a dynamic curriculum development and intellectual property greenhouse that grows leaders and shapes cultures — Dr. Blake Leath supports clients by providing consulting & communication services and tools that transform leaders, cultures, and processes to achieve dramatic breakthroughs in strategy and performance. His primary interests include strategy, culture, leadership, change, effects of a four-generation workforce, systems thinking, M&A integration, trust & influence, and the process of acculturation.
He has worked with clients as diverse as Adidas, AT&T, Bausch & Lomb, BHP Billiton, BNSF Railway, Capital One, Citigroup, Daimler, Ericsson, GE, Kodak, Libbey, Lockheed Martin, Los Alamos National Laboratory, Northwestern Mutual, Pfizer, Sony, and the U.S. Departments of Agriculture, Defense, and Interior.

He is the author of Cultivating the Strategic Mind, published in 2007. The modest and very personal text consistently receives high praise from professional strategists embracing its approaches to reinforce more systemic strategic thinking. His forthcoming book, The Managerial Mind, is expected in 2017.
He resides in the very gently rolling hills of North Texas with his beloved wife, Dawn, and their precious daughter, Lauren, and their microscopic Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, Daisy.
