Ron Holifield Speaker Biography


Ron Holifield is a “Servant Leader Provocateur” with one goal: To drive the leadership conversation in corporations and local government nationwide toward a servant leadership value system.

You cannot change the world without challenging the status quo, so Ron is aggressive in how he pushes people to embrace authentic servant leadership principles. His specialty is helping local government and corporate leaders get into that uncomfortable space to create cultures that produce both high performance and emotional satisfaction for their teams.

For more than 30 years, he’s successfully recruited, assessed, and developed innovative, collaborative, and authentic leaders in the country’s most change-resistant sectors. As a former city manager, Ron has grown and transformed destinations to cities named as best-run and top for business, elevating their positions as statewide leaders. He’s partnered with more than 700 local jurisdictions in 47 states and consulted with some of the nation’s leading corporations, including American Express, Xerox, IBM, PeopleSoft, Verizon, Aramark, Space Imaging, and NASA.

A straight-talking change agent who produces results, Ron is a nationally sought-after speaker who presents annually at over 50 national, state, and regional conferences and has been featured on NPR, Entrepreneur, and numerous online, print, and broadcast news outlets. He’s also the author of 4th Dimension Leadership: A Radical Strategy for Creating an Authentic Servant Leadership Culture; and a contributor to Building Brands and Creating Cultures of Authentic Servant Leadership.
