189: Brad Deutser: I’ve never looked back

Brad Deutser Show Notes Page

Brad Deuster had a business partner for many years and he finally realized that the partnership didn’t work for him. He kept giving and giving and finally let go of the circuit breakers and the things that were holding him back – he embraced clarity.

To some, Brad Deutser’s path has been anything but clear. A camp counsellor in the east coast for 11 summers, a stint in London at a solicitor’s firm where he was known as the great American lawyer, a high school basketball coach, a leasing agent at a low-income apartment complex, an old-fashioned circus promoter at Ringling Bros, a token male at an all-female PR firm, an executive at an advertising agency, to his role in developing one of the most unique consultancies in the country. Brad has been in some very interesting roles throughout his career.

But the one constant is Brad’s ability help others navigate transition and chaos, and achieve at levels they never before dreamed possible. In fact, it is that love of helping others be the best they can be that led him to create Deutser, an innovative consulting firm focused on helping organizations and their leaders achieve clarity to drive business performance, as well as Deutser Clarity Institute, a think tank, idea accelerator and learning lab.

Brad doesn’t bring a traditional consulting mindset, rather, he uses a high energy, extremely creative approach to connect with leaders and teams and unlock the DNA inside both the leader and their organization. His years of research, success with clients across the globe and approach to helping others is the focus of his new book, Leading Clarity, the Breakthrough Strategy to Unleash People, Profit and Performance. He is a big believer in Thinking INSIDE the Box and he has devised a system to help people visualize and construct their box. His work gives leaders across many industries and sized companies a replicable process to affect culture and change futures – both the leader and the people who work with and for them.

Known for his unique brand of clarity and positivity in all he does, Brad is committed to affecting change at a societal level and has infused socially responsible and cause related principles in not only his clients’ practices, but his own firm’s as well.  He established The Deutser Clarity Fund, which everyone in his company participates, to support causes that bring clarity to the community.

Brad’s personal clarity comes from his special relationship with his family, including his wife of more than 23 years and 2 loving children, who are the light of his life.
