An Independent Certified Coach, Teacher, Trainer and Speaker with The John Maxwell Team

About Don (Donald) Ritz

As a John Maxwell Certified Coach, Teacher, Trainer and Speaker, I can offer you workshops, seminars, keynote speaking, and coaching, aiding your personal and professional growth through study and practical application of John’s proven leadership methods. Working together, I will move you and/or your team or organization in the desired direction to reach your goals.

My journey through life has taught me invaluable lessons on the pursuit of excellence.  Having been a globally engaged executive experienced in operations, safety, risk, human resources and organizational effectiveness, I saw first hand how everything, everything absolutely rises and falls on leadership.  In many of these endeavors, John Maxwell’s principles were a great source of inspiration and encouragement, so when the opportunity came to become more closely aligned with the John Maxwell Team, there was no hesitation.  My goal is to help people and organizations add value.  While in the corporate world, I led transformations in culture and developed leadership programs to assist in those efforts.

I am known to be a team player, having integrity, high standards, strong values, open minded and an adaptable style. As an independent thinker and a strong strategic leader and advisor, I can bring about decisions through strong collaborative and consensus processes.
