Rob Kaiser is an author, advisor, and authority on leadership. He began his career at the Center for Creative Leadership. In 2013 Rob started Kaiser Leadership Solutions to set a new standard in assessment and development by offering a suite of innovative tools. He has published many articles in both the scientific literature and the international business press, as well as five books — including The Versatile Leader (2006), The Perils of Accentuating the Positive (2009), and Fear Your Strengths (2013). Rob’s thought leadership is scientific yet grounded in his extensive experience as an executive coach, an evaluator of candidates for executive jobs and a strategic advisor to CEOs and HR leaders. Rob is serious about his work, but doesn’t take himself too seriously; he’s known for his plain-spoken way of challenging conventional wisdom and telling it like it is.
