About Kumar Dattatreyan

As a John Maxwell Certified Coach, Teacher 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 leadership journey began over 30 years ago, when I led several multi-million dollar restaurant franchises.  I later moved to running multi-million dollar IT projects.  The transition from being a restaurateur to an IT PM was challenging but provided a rich learning experience.  

I started out as a developer in the early 2000’s and transitioned to a leadership role as a Project Manager, all the while using the skills I’d gained in restaurants to help nurture one of the highest performing teams in the company I worked for at the time.  I always gravitated to leading and serving others through my leadership, and this allowed me to discover something called the Agile Manifesto.  This document resonated with me on many levels, and most of all in the model of leadership inherent in it.  

I progressed from this point on to transition my role from a manager to a coach and have been coaching and training others for the past 15 years.  My coaching is mostly in Enterprise Agile Transformations; helping medium to large organizations change how they work.  As part of this change, the biggest challenge is in how leadership/management views people and the work they do and it's here that Agile Change methods are not quite as mature as they need to be.  This is what led me to discover the John Maxwell Team and the wealth of coaching, mentoring and teaching models that have allowed me to help managers transition to leaders so much more effectively.  

Please contact me. I look forward to assisting you on your journey to leadership.
