“What I learned from Jan changed my personal and professional life for good, and it completely blew all my other leadership training out of the water… In my military career I was given commendations, I was lauded on all of my evaluations, and I was praised by senior Coast Guard leadership. None of this gave me the sense of validation that I got from Self-Reliant Leadership®.”
—Meghan Zehringer, Former Coast Guard Officer, Manufacturing Management Development Program – NGC
Jan Rutherford is a former Green Beret and a successful entrepreneur, podcast host, wilderness expedition leader, and author of the book, The Littlest Green Beret.
Jan’s experience comes from the business world, the military and academia; but his philosophy is from a confluence of Sparta’s discipline, Socrates’ self-awareness, Aristotle’s courage, Emerson’s self-reliance, and Thoreau’s reflective seclusion.
His coaching and speaking work also includes leading expeditions with executives and military veterans, and sharing leadership insights from those experiences.
