Greg Harden Speaker Biography

Greg Harden, M.S.W., is a life coach, motivational speaker and executive consultant who is best known for his work with 7-time Super Bowl champion quarterback Tom Brady, Heisman Trophy winner and Super Bowl MVP Desmond Howard, and 23-time Olympic gold medalist Michael Phelps. Harden began work as a student-athlete counselor in 1986 when Michigan legendary football coach Bo Schembechler brought him in after hearing of the work Harden was doing in the local community helping people deal with the challenges of everyday life and work as a clinical therapist. He meets with hundreds of athletes every year including some of the greatest athletes and coaches of all time in their respective sports, like Jalen Rose, Olympians Emily Brunemann, Jeff Porter and Olympic legend Michael Phelps to name a few.

Michael Phelps’ swimming coach Bob Bowman, credits Harden for helping him to communicate better with Phelps. Bowman said of Harden: “He’s a miracle worker. He made me a better coach and a better person.”

Besides sports, Harden has provided performance coaching to corporate executives and community leaders. He has trained hundreds of managers and administrators on ‘managing trouble employees’.

Harden has this phrase framed on his office desk: “Control the controllables.” It’s no use railing against the system, or against circumstance, Harden says. You can only change what’s within. How you control your emotions, reactions and responses to systems and circumstances is what you must master first.

“My real obsession is to convince an individual that they have to determine for themselves what sort of man, what sort of woman they want to be. The goal is to make people experts on themselves.”

As a renowned motivational speaker, Greg is a dynamic and highly-sought-after resource for Fortune 500 companies, small businesses, and community organizations.

Greg’s depth of knowledge about achievement has inspired people from all walks of life to face and conquer their own challenges, and from his wealth of experience, he is able to craft his message for maximum relevance and impact for each audience.

His energy, warmth and dedication are amazing, and he has received enormous amounts of praise and gratitude from hundreds of successful individuals and organizations.

Greg has said, “It is really not about me, it is about the work. The work is so much fun, it’s hard to believe how much fun you can have trying to help people stay sane in an insane place.”
