Our Mission

Blanchard’s leadership experts, proven content, and dynamic learning experiences maximize individual achievement and organizational performance.

Our Values

Be True

From business decisions to daily interactions, we remain true to our values. Grounded in transparency and directness, we strive to consistently do what’s right by our clients and our people.

Scale Kindness

First, do no harm. We serve others with compassion, love, and grace. We act as though the world is watching, always stopping to ask, “Is it fair, balanced, and right?”

Transform Together

Transformation is not realized by one individual. Heart and mind-aligned leaders inspire teams to reach new heights of achievement together.

Relentless Pursuit

True leadership is a persistent learning quest. We are a constant resource for those navigating this journey, inspiring people to continuously redefine their personal bests.

Developing tomorrow’s leaders, today

Drs. Ken and Marjorie Blanchard founded The Ken Blanchard Companies in 1979 with three simple goals—to make a difference in people’s lives, drive human worth and effectiveness in the workplace, and help each organization we work with become the provider, employer, and investment of choice.
