Tom Esch has been deeply involved in leadership development for three decades. He has inspired over 25,000 leaders to live with a bolder level of personal accountability and grow their critical people skills.
Esch is a gifted keynote speaker, consultant, trainer and coach. He has been the lead on scores of leadership development and culture change projects. He has demonstrated significant, positive business results.
His superpower is helping “conflict reticent” people have conscious conversations which cause productive breakthroughs in accountability and integrity in the workplace (and at home).
Esch is a former priest, and his special passion is responding to imbalances of power and rank which cause pain and hurt profitability in many organizations. He understands how differences related to position and personality impact interpersonal relationships, leadership and the bottom line.
Esch has two master’s degrees: one in Conflict Resolution and Organizational Development and the other in Theology from the University of Notre Dame. He also has a certificate in mediation from Hamline University in St. Paul, Minnesota. He is also a former Catholic priest.
His new book, "Personal Accountability and POWER: How Contractors Can Build a Stronger Safety Culture", is a culmination of 25 years of training, consulting and coaching people from a variety of cultures and all walks of life.
In the daytime Tom Esch is the Chief Leadership Officer of Esch Consulting, LLC based in St. Paul, Minnesota. At night is a standup comedian in the role of Fr. Vito Incognido, a distant relative of Fr. Guido Sarducci.
