Russell W. West, Ph.D.

With more than 25 years in the military, university, non-profit, business, teaching and service, West brings keen analytic and mentoring skills to the task of organizational and leadership conditioning. Executives who work with him comment on the tireless innovation with which he turns theories into traction and traction into profit. Many are often surprised to learn he is a former drill instructor for U.S. Marine officer candidates, at least until they see him coach mediocre performance into excellence. He is especially skillful in helping teams: move beyond status quo, overcome systemic impairment, execute toward measurable results. He’ll do so with humor, candor and professionalism. Dr. West has also written several books and designed graduate school curricula regarding organizational development.
