In pursuit of the American Dream, Kevin Kruse started his first company when he was just 22 years old. He worked around the clock, literally living out of his one-room office and showering each day at the YMCA, before giving up a year later deeply in debt.
But after discovering the power of Wholehearted Leadership and Employee Engagement Kevin went on to build and sell several, multimillion dollar technology companies, winning both Inc 500 and Best Place to Work awards along the way.
Kevin is also the author of several books including the NY Times bestseller, We: How to Increase Performance and Profits Through Full Engagement, which was named one of the top leadership books in 2011 by 800-CEO-Read. He is a Forbes Leadership columnist and was named to the Top 100 Business Thought Leaders list by Trust Across America.
His book, Employee Engagement 2.0, provides a detailed action plan that turns “task-managers” into “people-leaders” and Employee Engagement for Everyone guides individuals to greater happiness at work.
Kevin’s mission is to convince everyone that wholehearted leadership for employee engagement is the key to unlocking both dramatic business results and to better health and relationships for individuals.
