Meet Ed Oakley

CEO, Enlightened Leadership Solutions

Founder of Enlightened Leadership Solutions(ELS) and co-author of “Enlightened Leadership; Getting to the Heart of Change”and other books, Ed has consulted both domestically and internationally in 68 countries over the last 27 years.

His books have over 300,000 in circulation. He specializes in project turn-arounds, change efforts, and breakout initiatives. At least 23 of the Fortune 100 have used, and/or are using his work.

Before forming his own company, Ed was an executive at HP and was noted for starting new roles and demonstrating how to have breakout performance in those roles.

Over the last couple of decades, Ed and his team have created products and services such as Influencing Without Authority for Breakthrough Results, Making Managers into Leaders, Leadership Made Simple…

While these programs were all well-received and created breakout performance by people and organizations, Ed always felt there was more to this “leadership development” thing than they and other top leadership development companies were realizing.

Inspired by a recent personal debilitating illness, Ed has broken the code on a whole new way of developing leadership, one that is easy and gets you closer and closer to who you really are – the leaders that is inside you naturally. He developed a unique and breakout way to optimize the effectiveness of individuals and organizations. It is highly unique in that most of the work is actually done FOR YOU by the ELS team.

One key point is that this work SUPPORTS whatever “leadership development” work you’ve already done. It actually is the key to MAKING THAT EXPENSIVE TRAINING WORK! It’s the missing piece in leadership development. A new book , “Enlightened Leadership in a New Era,” describes a piece of the process.

Ed currently works with CEOs, organizations and individuals to clear what’s holding them back from enjoying the fast track into “Life’s New Game: Making the Quantum Leap to Enlightened Leadership in Business and Life.” This process is the easiest possible way to get to that breakout level of performance.
