Frank Wagner helps leaders achieve positive, long-term change in behavior.  He combines his experience since 1976 in developing leaders through workshop facilitation with his skills in working one-on-one with leaders as a behavioral coach.   When working at NationsBank (now Bank of America) Frank was nicknamed “The Consultant’s Consultant.” When working with IDS American Express, he was nicknamed “The Federal Express of Feedback” for assisting the senior executives in their teaching leadership throughout IDS.

Marshall Goldsmith, selected by the American Management Association as one of 50 great thinkers and leaders who have impacted the field of management over the past 80 years and has appeared in The Wall Street Journal – as one of the top ten executive educators, in Forbes – as one of five most-respected executive coaches and in Fast Company – as America’s preeminent executive coach, says about Frank:

“Frank Wagner is clearly one of the greatest leadership educators, coaches and teacher of coaches that I have ever met.  As an educator, Dr. Wagner combines a deep knowledge of leadership development with a gift for teaching that few teachers can match.  As a coach, he has an incredible track record of helping his clients achieve positive, measurable, long-term change in leadership behavior.  As a teacher of coaches, Frank is the person that Marshall Goldsmith Partners has chosen to lead the practice.  The graduates of his coaching training have gone on to produce results that rival his own success!”

This program is from a live recording of our Business Matters dialogue with Frank that took place on May 17th.
