John R. Childress
John R. Childress is a senior executive with 30 years experience of building and running an international consulting firm and also consulting and coaching CEOs and senior leadership teams. Born in the mountains of Oregon, raised on the California coast and educated at Harvard, John brings a penetrating insight, creative solutions and sense of humour to his work.
After deciding that a Ph.D. in marine ecology wasn’t his best path, John co-founded, in 1978, a groundbreaking leadership consulting firm with Dr. Larry E. Senn. By 2000 it had grown significantly with offices in Los Angeles, New York and London, over 50 consultants and a Blue Chip list of clients. John and Larry pioneered much of the early work on corporate culture and the technology for culture change.
In 2000 John retired to the south of France to write novels and “stop travelling for a while”. After two novels and a new daughter, John and his family moved to London where he coaches senior executives and works with global clients on special projects.
