Stewart Friedman's 2022 biography

About Stewart Friedman

Stew Freidman has dedicated his career to the study of leadership, work/life integration and organizational behaviour. He earned a doctorate from the University of Michigan, and has spent time in the corporate sector. His best selling and award winning book, “Total Leadership”, grew out of an innovative programme he developed during the 2 years he spent at The Ford Motor Company in the late 90s where he transformed the company’s culture. He looks for four-way wins by encouraging students to integrate work, home, community and is highly critical of the concept of balance because it suggests that something has to go.

As well as sharing his ideas with the U.S government, Stew Friedman has consulted with a wide range of organizations and executives, including Jack Welch, Vice President Al Gore, the United Nations, the U.S. Department of Labour, and the U.S. Army. His ideas have worked successfully in the United States, Europe, Central America, South America, and Canada increasing productivity by decreasing stress, turnover and absenteeism.

He serves on many advisory boards and conducts leadership workshops around the world. He was ranked number 45 in the Thinkers 50 list of top business minds and was chosen by Working Mother as one of Americas 25 Most Influential Men. He regularly appears in the business media.
