What holds us back from being the leader and difference maker we’re capable of? Our guest this week is Adrian Koehler. He is a leadership engagement expert and senior partner at the executive coaching firm, Take New Ground, through which he coaches executives and entrepreneurs in the art and science of leadership and how to create new, unprecedented results and experience greater fulfillment in their work.

He is also the co-host of two engaging podcasts: Raising The Bar with Drybar Founder Alli Webb and The Naked Leadership Podcast with TNG Sr Partner Dan Tocchini.

Today, in part 1 of this series, we explore Adrian’s personal leadership journey as well as his diverse coaching experience spanning philanthropy, ministry, activism, and medicine, which set the stage for Adrian to thrive in extreme environments and find comfort in difficult conversations.

He has trained and developed leaders at NIKE, Virgin Hyperloop One, Jeni’s Ice Cream, Herschel Supply Co., Oprah Winfrey Network, Gavin DeBecker & Associates, Siegel & Gale, UCLA, and elsewhere.

Prior to his work as an executive coach, Adrian was the founding executive director of The Cornerstone Project, a grant-giving foundation that supports positive life transformation and spiritual reconciliation for the incarcerated and those with criminal histories.

Before moving to Los Angeles in 2005, Adrian worked as a pediatric intensive care specialist at Children’s Memorial Hospital in Chicago. He has also served as a pastor and community organizer at Mosaic LA and founded serveLA, Mosaic’s community dedicated to holistic development for the marginalized and vulnerable in Los Angeles.

He received a Bachelor of Science in Nursing while playing football at Millikin University. Adrian currently resides in the heart of Hollywood with his wife and four children.
