Meet the Candidates
Scott Blanchard is Executive Vice President of Client Solutions for The Ken Blanchard Companies®, the company cofounded by his father, best-selling business author Ken Blanchard. An accomplished author in his own right (coauthor of Leverage Your Best, Ditch the Rest and Leading at a Higher Level), Scott represents the next generation of pioneering thought leadership on management issues. The experience and innate business instincts Scott has developed help enrich his messages on coaching and leadership, and he turns that knowledge into plans for action, leaving audiences inspired and ready to achieve. Scott’s high-energy presentations get to the core of today’s business issues by exploring different facets of the corporate environment and culture. He speaks with honesty, conviction, and excitement concerning the key success factors for both individuals and their organizations.
Scott’s personal philosophy is based on what he sees as a fundamental shift occurring in the discipline of leadership—the movement away from a limited focus on individual goal attainment toward getting things done with and through others. He is passionate about leadership and its role in organizations, and centers his presentations on research-based material. Scott feels that his job is to create anxiety by shining a spotlight on practices that are not yielding the best results within a company, and providing practical solutions that will help improve the situation.
Having led major training interventions at numerous Fortune 500 companies, Scott has worked with a wide variety of senior executives in leading large initiatives for international corporations. An experienced trainer and organizational consultant, he has extensive experience in all of the Blanchard® key practice areas, most notably corporate coaching, having co-created the coaching function within the company. Blanchard Coaching Services has revolutionized the corporate coaching industry and has provided coaching to more than 10,000 clients throughout the world.
Scott was educated at Cornell University and received his master’s degree in organizational development from American University in Washington, DC.
Christina Scott is a change agent with 10+ years of experience grounded in education and public service. She is committed to creating equitable opportunities– especially for those from low income and/or historically marginalized communities. In her current role as a Program Analyst for the District of Columbia Department of Employment Services (DOES), she partners with executive leadership and program managers within her agency to improve performance, agency culture, and stakeholder value. In her four years with the District, her work with agency leadership has helped to improve collaboration and morale among departments, which has increased performance, and essentially has improved the quality of services available to District residents.
Christina began her professional career as a Teach for America corps member, working predominantly with students and communities of color. Her work as an educator has helped her to see the importance of understanding one’s own bias, privilege, and cultural lens when seeking to transform the lenses of others. In alignment with her passion for equity, diversity, and cultural transformation, Christina earned a Master of Science in Organization Development from American University (C69). During her time at American, she had an opportunity to consult with two organizations in Washington, DC and one in Johannesburg, South Africa. She was also a recipient of the prestigious Segal-Seashore Award. In addition to her graduate studies in organization development, Christina holds a Master of Arts in Urban Education from University of Maryland, and a Bachelor of Arts in English from Fordham University.
Christina has a passion for connecting people to others and to themselves. At the root of connection, she believes, is the gift to know ourselves greater and deeper. When she is not working on her master plan to change the world, she enjoys traveling, listening to all types of music, and inciting dance parties whenever possible.
