Dr. Rick Chromey (CEO, Leading from the Edge Presentations and Training) equips leaders to lead, trainers to train and teachers to teach.  He's a regular on television and radio as a leadership expert, serves as a consultant and an award-winning Toastmaster.  He's also a popular author on leadership, culture, human motivation and faith, penning eleven books, including three best-selling titles. Dr. Chromey has written for leading periodicals on children, youth and family and travels widely to speak at conferences, conventions and other leadership events as "the Original Edu-trainer!"  It's a title that fits him perfectly because audiences rave about his skill to create smiles while blending in powerful insights and amazing ideas. 

Besides a masters in education, Dr. Chromey also holds an earned doctorate in Leadership and the Emerging Culture from George Fox University, accredited by NWCCU.  After 15 years as professor of ministry for three colleges and universities, he currently teaches graduate leadership online courses for Hope International University (Fullerton, CA).  Rick's ability to translate topics and re-imagine information into memorable nuggets of insight has made him a popular instructor and trainer.  Dr. Chromey has special expertise in emerging culture, motivational theory and creative communication, and with dozens of topics under his belt has the uncanny ability to teach and speak on multiple subjects, in various contexts, for audiences of all ages, from children to seniors, in both secular and Christian leadership training.

Rick is at his best when training people to be highly-motivated, productive and creative.  His workshops on leadership styles, creative communication and human motivation (a.k.a. the GROWLS) are guaranteed to spark fresh insights and ideas in your team, staff or group. He also speaks to children and teens about overcoming adversity, living their dreams and enjoying life "hakuna matata" (based upon his work in Tanzania, Africa).

Dr. Chromey is a small town Montana native who understands unique challenges in life--whether in school, home or work.  He's learned to rise above conflict, navigate change and encourage optimism.  Rick says, "Every obstacle holds opportunity and every problem is pregnant with possibility!  After all, anyone can play a good hand but few get dealt such fortune.  Most of us draw deuces not diamonds, jokers not jacks.  The secret (and joy) to a full life is to take the hand you're dealt and turn it into a winner!"
