Highland, IL - Retired Brigadier General Tom Kolditz is redefining the role of leadership. With over 35 years in leadership roles on four continents, Tom Kolditz founded Saxon Castle to offer leadership education for corporations and individuals worldwide. Clients have included Ford, GE, Google, Mercedes Benz, Boeing, All State, Goldman Sachs, as well as thousands of exceptional individuals.

Tom’s 2007 release, In Extremis Leadership: Leading As If Your Life Depended On It, addresses another aspect of Tom’s expert knowledge—leadership in crisis and in dangerous circumstances. “When people feel that they are in danger, everything that we refer to as ‘management’ gets stripped away. Nobody cares; they will write any check to get out of the situation, will break rules and policies. In fear situations, it’s all pure leadership based on trust. Building trust is essential for good leadership.

For a flat monthly fee based on income, Saxon Castle clients receive 2 scheduled sessions/month. “If a client would rather have 4 sessions, that’s fine, no extra charge. And if you are having a problem at three in the morning, no problem, call me. I work with clients worldwide, their time zone is my time zone.”

Tom admits that his ideal clients are individuals, and his favorites are relatively young leaders with minimal experience, preferably running a company that’s success will help the world. As a teacher and professional competitive skeet shooter, he has seen how the best learners start knowing very little. “New leaders have few bad habits,” quipped Tom.
