D Ryan Setzer, America's Performance Coach, author of The Ultimate Medical Manager; Leadership for Results has conducted over a thousand seminars in 46 states and nine countries, in industries ranging from healthcare to technology.
His exposure has helped him understand that many problems within organizations are created by people who have been trained technically, but have received little or no leadership, team, or people skills training.
His areas of focus include dealing with difficult employees, managing change, building effective teams, and transitional leadership. After working with over sixty five thousand attendees he began to realize that while most people are competent doers, they are being promoted into leadership positions equipped with a doer mentality, but little or no real business or management training. This is equally destructive for the former superstar doer and the staff they now manage. Coupled with his previous experience as a professional athlete, Ryan's insights have transformed audience perspectives and polished their skills.
Setzer's ability to translate theory into practical application coupled with his unique perspective on performance development and enhancement have made him a sought after speaker, trainer and consultant. He has been a frequent keynote and seminar leader at State MGMA conferences, and partnership programs as well as thousands of onsite and public seminars. He is proud to say he has well over 30 thousand stellar testimonials in his file cabinet of his content quality and his ability to inspire an audience.
His audience members have included leadership from small businesses and franchises like Jiffy Lube, that depend on each and every employee's contribution, to large corporations such as Royals Royce, American Express, Tropicana, and Mary Black Health Systems.
His testimonials reflect the value of his programs.
