Area of Focus: Individual and Business 

I like to think I help people get what they think they want as fast as possible so I can ask, "Was that it?" Transformation is more about understanding WHY something is important to you rather than the actual goal - I call it Purpose driven success.  Back in the early days of personal transformation, I was fortunate enough to blend personal and spiritual awareness by teaming up with my spiritual teacher, John-Roger. We created Insight Seminars in 1978 to help people deal with these deeper aspects of leading a more fulfilling life. 

My background in personal development work lead to companies asking if I could help them build more powerful, accountable and aligned leadership teams. Along the way, I have been fortunate enough to discover a powerful and inspiring blend of insights and best practices for personal and professional transformation.

In addition to my book, Workarounds That Work: How to Conquer Anything That Stands in Your Way at Work, I have authored over 200 articles in such leading publications as The New York Times, Forbes, Strategy & Business, Crain’s, The Huffington Post, Psychology Today, World Finance, CIO, CFO, The Globe and Mail and PC World.

Russell lives in Santa Barbara, California where he is enjoys golf, biking and cooking.
