Wade bio - 2019 - Apr_edited.jpg


Wade's philosophy is simple:


Your business is only as good as the people that work for it.


To get better performance, we need to encourage, motivate and drive employees to achieve their very best.  This doesn't happen by itself - it takes courage, tenacity, and grit to win in today's environment. 


This requires a new breed of manager and leader to get us to where we need to go.

His football days in high school taught him the value of working as a team to get the ball over the goal line. You can't win the game by playing defense...you have to craft a strategy well enough to use the right player to match the competition to win. Different players have different strengths. HIs role as a lineman was simple - do what it takes to get the ball down the field. You don't have to be the one carrying the ball to be essential to team success...Everyone is essential to do their part. The key is for each player to achieve peak performance and align that performance in a way that helps the organization achieve its highest potential. 


Over his career, Dr. Larson has focused his efforts to bring this emphasis to organizations of all types and sizes.


After a catastrophic car accident in South America that nearly claimed his life in early adulthood, Wade has sought to make the most out of life. Most importantly, he has sought to help others achieve their very best. His messages of leadership, self-improvement, and doing business better resonates with listeners as they find new opportunities to improve their personal leadership in both business and life.
