Why Tom Crea?
Tom Crea is a leadership expert, decorated career Army Officer, Blackhawk Helicopter pilot, accomplished author and engaging speaker who shares simple principles and insights in a way that keeps the audience on the edge of their seats which they can apply that very day.
Because of his proven leadership development skills, he was hand selected to run the ROTC leadership development program at two colleges, where his team transformed college students into Army Leaders.
Over the years, Tom has directed his leadership development skills to the private sector. His frontline, real world, “in the trenches” experience working with all levels of military, civilian, and contract staff enable him to turn diverse, often conflicted staff into focused, mission oriented team members who accomplish more, faster, and with less resistance.
He has a B.S. & M.C.S. in Computer Science and a M.A. in Political Science and loves coaching basketball and spending time with his wife and two boys.
His proudest leadership moment came when his Troop was called to war in Iraq after he had rotated out. His replacement was not able to perform, so members in his Troop stepped up to lead; they attribute their success to the leadership Tom instilled in each of them. Today, the Blackhawk leadership way.
Values are like magnets: marketed to attract like-minded people, when lived, you retain your best and brightest.
