Clint Sidle is the Director of the prestigious Roy H. Park Leadership Fellows Program in the Johnson Graduate School of Management at Cornell University, and is a widely sought consultant in leadership development, executive coaching, and managing strategic change. He has worked with Fortune 500 companies, state and local educational systems, and some of the nation’s leading universities and non-profit organizations. His leadership programs at Cornell and elsewhere have earned national recognition. Recently Clint published his third book This Hungry Spirit: Your Need for Basic Goodness by Larson Publications (2009) in which he demonstrates how what makes you happy, also makes you successful and more likely to contribute to the world in positive ways.

Clint calls on each of us to lean into and lead from our evolutionary edge. He shows how detecting and tapping into our positive intelligence and authentic self we realize our true potential for both professional success and personal fulfillment. As such, his method goes beyond the simple techniques and quick fixes to actually shift ways of being. It taps into an inner vitality, creativity, and sense of purpose that we each inherently possess but are conditioned to ignore. Tapping into that evolutionary edge is perhaps the single greatest leverage we have for creating positive change in our lives and in the world.

To fulfill this promise, Clint draws on the latest scientific research from the fields of neuroscience and psychology blended with ancient wisdom in offering powerful paradigm for understanding happiness and success. He frames leadership around five intelligences—intellectual, emotional, intuitive, action, and spiritual. Each is necessary for becoming fully effective and together manifest as success, service, and personal fulfillment. It is a compelling and intuitive way of thinking about personal effectiveness that has been enthusiastically adapted by the thousands of professionals and executives Clint has trained. Clint describes this paradigm in his second book The Leadership Wheel: Five Steps for Achieving Individual and Organizational Greatness by Palgrave Macmillan, 2005.


Clint co-authored his first book, High Impact Tools and Techniques for Strategic Planning by McGraw Hill (1998). This book provides dozens of recipes for creative group activities to facilitate strategic planning in any organization. Designed for use by consultants, facilitators, and management team leaders, step-by-step instructions guide you through exercises for gaining employee and management participation, gathering feedback from management about the current state of the organization, creating an organized mission, vision and values statement, and planning so that the vision becomes reality.


Clint draws on of this range of knowledge and experience in providing outdoor leadership treks that he has been leading for the last twenty years. He serves on the board of the Cornell University Outdoor Education program (COE) and helped develop it into one of the premier university-based outdoor education program in the country. Over this period he has facilitated dozens of outdoor leadership treks for professionals in the Adirondacks of New York, the Smoky Mountains of North Carolina, the Wind River Range in Wyoming, the Superstition Mountains of Arizona, and for the last four years, the Himalayas of Nepal. He has found working in the outdoors in team-based leadership programs the perfect laboratory for personal reflection and development. His treks in Nepal for professionals have proven a very powerful experience for re-energizing and re-envisioning the lives of mid-career executives.
