About Us

LEAD YOUR ORGANIZATION IN CONTINUOUS GROWTH AND CHANGE WHILE DEVELOPING THE NEXT GENERATION OF LEADERS.

Chuck Ward & Associates is a research and engagement-based leadership development firm, which supports the growth of personally, professionally and emotionally competent leaders. We distinguish ourselves by applying insights garnered from neuroscience, the use of psychological assessments, emotional intelligence and practical experience.

Through executive coaching, training seminars and workshops, keynote presentations and the creation of curriculum and publications, we empower you for greater success using the truths we discover from research and years of personal application.

We do not come with a one-size-fits-all approach. We build authentic relationships of rapport, trust and mutual respect, so you feel safe to share professional and personal problems, challenges, aspirations and opportunities. We listen with objectivity to tailor strategies and tactics that resolve root issues, making lasting change possible.

Mission & History

Dr. Charles W. Ward founded Chuck Ward & Associates, Inc. in 1990 as a response to numerous requests to provide training and keynote messages for Fortune 500 companies. Chuck, a professor at the time, spoke each week for seven years at LunchTalk, a luncheon in Dallas catered to business professionals. In 1996, Chuck left the classroom to devote his full attention to delivering training and keynote addresses. As requests for him to speak one-on-one with business leaders came pouring in, Chuck’s career shifted to executive coaching at the C-level of numerous Fortune 500 companies.

Today, Dr. Ward is joined by an accomplished team of associates who offer a proven and customized leadership development approach to emerging and established leaders.
