About Chris Cappy

Chris’s work includes many customized, ROI-assessed skill-building interventions under the banner of Leaders Teaching Leaders. As an accomplished architect of change for individuals, teams, and entire organizations, he’s coached hundreds of executives through professional and life transitions in service of their greater success and life fulfillment.

For four years, he was a principal in the award-winning Executive Challenge Program, an innovator in experiential team development at Boston University’s School of Management.

Between 1984-1995, Chris was a faculty member at General Electric’s Crotonville Institute and served as lead consultant with Work-Out for the GE Appliances business, assessed by Jack Welch as being “the most culturally transformed of all GE Businesses via the Work-Out process.” He also served on the design and implementation team for GE’s CAP initiative.

Between 1994-2001, Chris and the Co-Pilot team drove and managed IBM’s worldwide adaptation of Work-Out methodology. From 1996 to 1999, nearly five-hundred ACT (Accelerate Change Together) initiatives were successfully conducted in over thirty countries resulting in several billion dollars of measured returns. Simplified, faster and more consistent execution results were realized through this focused, cross-culturally valid engagement process.

He currently is working closely in a business development role with our joint-venture partner Empactful Advisors. His book Driving Leaders highlights how high-performance driving and racing disciplines can improve executive and entrepreneurial leadership performance. Chris is  a founding member in Marshall Goldsmith’s Learning Network.

Professional education includes a Bachelors of Science in Production Management from Rochester Institute of Technology and graduate work completing Boston University’s Management Development Program and Columbia University’s Advanced Organizational Development Program.

Chris enjoys life in Colorado involved in many outdoor activities with his wife Andrea and son Allen. He is an avid Formula 1 fan and occasionally spends time at race tracks around the USA.
