Alan OlsonAlan is a licensed trainer and motivational speaker in a large organization focusing on teaching leadership skills for both personal and professional growth. His expertise spans a wide range of well known leadership workshops such as Dr. Stephen Covey's 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, Dr. John Pickering's High Performance Organizations for the 21st Century, and Dr. Ken Blanchard's Situational Leadership II. He also coaches senior managers in performance improvement within their organizations.

Alan has an avocation of story telling and has been doing that for 15 years. Alan’s primary skill is engaging an audience and taking them on a journey into themselves in a fun, exciting, and non-threatening way. In an interactive manner, Alan helps people experience in the moment what they might do differently, or think about differently, that would serve them and their relationships better. One person wrote, “While the experts write about personal growth and how to do it, Alan lives it in the moment, bringing his audience along with him. They become enthralled and captivated by the insights they actually feel while Alan interacts with his audience.”
