Krister Ungerböck At A Glance:

Krister Ungerböck is a leadership language expert, former global tech CEO and author. His work has appeared in Forbes, Entrepreneur, Inc., HR.com, and Chief Executive. Prior to retiring from corporate life at age 42, Krister was CEO of one of the largest family-owned software companies in the world.

Prior to retiring from corporate life at age 42, Krister Ungerböck was the CEO of one of the largest family-owned software companies in the world—a company that grew over 3,000%, achieved 99.3% employee engagement and won 5 consecutive Top Workplace Awards. The Language of Leadership was inspired by Krister’s experience learning to lead teams in two foreign languages, building businesses on five continents, and observing the language of leaders while doing business in over 40 countries.

Yet, Krister’s most profound leadership insight did not come while he was the CEO of a global company.

It came at the YMCA.

Staring into a bathroom mirror, eyes swollen with tears, he saw for the first time the leader he’d become—a leader with no followers. He realized that, in his quest to become a successful leader of a business, he’d failed as a leader of people.

He began a journey seeking the secrets that had eluded him all those years as CEO. His journey took him to the uncharted leadership lands that you won’t read about in the business media.

And it was there that he discovered The Language of Leadership.

Because it’s a unified language of leadership for both our personal and professional lives, The Language of Leadership appeals to people at all levels in organizations, including people who don’t aspire to leadership positions. The Language of Leadership helps people to lead at work (and at home) with more accountability, compassion and emotional intelligence. It’s a universal leadership language to helps people balance toughness with kindness, intellect with emotion, and results with relationships.

A seasoned CEO who has spoken to thousands on 5 continents—ranging from Sydney, Paris, Cape Town, Hong Kong and Dubai—Krister speaks primarily in North America these days. He moves audiences by taking them on an emotional journey that weaves together intriguing, humorous stories from faraway places with deeply personal, cautionary tales of lessons learned from great business successes—and great personal failures.
