ExecuSpect was born out of a belief that better leaders create better business and better buisness creates better communities. Better communties are always good for business. Think about it, what if you could improve your community by improving your leadership skills? Execuspect believes this is the answer to a struggling economy and declining communities. Our goal is to improve the overall economy of a community, one business owner at a time. Our mission is "Developing Successful Executives by Improving Leadership Perspectives." We accomplish this by teaching, coaching, and developing ethics, integrity, and skills. We believe that success is in the hands of the CEO. Our goal is to help CEO's, executives, pastors, and small business owners begin to see and develop the leadership skills that promote business success.
Dr. Michael Rhodabarger is founder and consultant of ExecuSpect Business Consulting. His passion for leadership started in 1995 where he was first invited to provide training for a specific project at the plant where he was employed. Since then, he has worked for several companies in management and corporate training positions. He holds a PhD in organizational leadership and has developed a leadership assessment instrument that measures individual leadership competencies that can and should be developed if business and leader are to succeed.
Michael’s doctoral research, Transformational and Servant Leadership Characteristics of Successful Leaders has culminated into a book called Leadership Equilibrium and has been used for personal leadership development by individuals as well as executive boards across the U.S. including churches, dealerships, manufacturing, healthcare, food service, and homeless shelters. He believes that organizational success is built on the strength of morals, values, and personal leadership competencies necessarily exhibited in the leader. He emphasizes and develops specific competencies that help leaders identify, confront, and overcome challenges threatening the progress and success of their business.
Life Philosophy: Enjoy the Journey. Your legacy is built upon every event you survive.
