LearyGates_I_280x280Leary has a passion for starting things. In fact, you might think of him as a business creative. He has less interest in extending the status quo than finding new ways to do things.

That’s brought him into a lot of opportunity to work with some amazing people and companies, primarily through his venture management consulting firm, Lumina Consulting Group, that Leary founded in 1995, but also through his non-profit, BoldPath Life Strategies, that he launched just over a decade ago.

Over the course of his career Leary led divisions in Fortune 1000 companies, launched and led consulting firms and software companies, and founded or led several non-profits and served on several corporate and non-profit boards. He’s spoken to thousands of people, written hundreds of articles, created nearly a hundred podcasts, and coached or counseled countless leaders and emerging leaders. In each of these endeavors Leary’s primary interest has been to unearth a person’s (or firm’s) core value and finding creative ways to grow it.

Leary’s most recent endeavor is StrategicCEO, a website and associated services dedicated to increasing the strategic capacity of leaders.

Over the past decade, he’s come to discover that a lot of the principles he’s applied in the business world to clarify mission, values and strategy also works with individuals. That’s the point behind BoldPath Life Strategies, where he delivers a number of workshops to help Christian men and women develop a more intentional approach to unleashing their personal mission.

Leary will tell you the greatest honor he has is as a husband to his wife of 35 years, Anna, and a father to his four adult children, Stephanie, Ryan, Joshua, and Jonathan. They are a constant encouragement and delight.
