About Dr. Josh Wymore


Josh is driven by his personal purpose to help people live and lead with purpose and clarity. He believes that better leadership is the solution to our world’s greatest challenges, and it is this purpose and belief that has led him to coach, train, and mentor leaders for more than a decade.

Josh’s passion for leadership development started during college at LeTourneau University. His experience leading leaders there prompted him to pursue a Master’s degree (at Taylor University, where he also met his wife) and a PhD at Penn State. He used his studies in education and business to build leadership development initiatives at Gordon College and Spring Arbor University before launching his own consulting business. He now brings his research, leadership, and teaching experience to leaders across the world as a speaker, facilitator, and leadership coach.

A few fundamental beliefs guide all of Josh’s work:

  • Purpose. Leaders and organizations are most effective when they understand their purpose and align all their decisions and resources to pursue it intentionally.

  • Strengths. When we understand our strengths and leverage them effectively, we do our best work (and enjoy it, too).

  • Growth. Great success comes from continual improvement, not merely talent.

  • Habits. Our habits are perhaps the most powerful tools for shaping us into the leaders we need to become.


Why does all this matter? Because better leadership is the fundamental solution to all our world’s greatest challenges.
