Anthony Silard is the CEO of The Global Leadership Institute and the President of The Center for Social Leadership. Anthony was once named Visionary of the Year, and featured at the Presidential Summit for America’s Future and America’s Promise. As a leadership coach, he helps the CEOs and senior executives of Fortune 100 companies, small businesses and the world’s largest nonprofits such as GE, Disney, Nokia, Bank of America, IBM, CARE, Save the Children, The United Way and the American Red Cross to become more authentic people and more effective leaders.

Silard holds a Master’s in Public Policy focused on leadership from Harvard University and has received two of Harvard’s most prestigious awards, the Robert F. Kennedy Public Service Award and the Manuel Carballo Memorial Award. His leadership programs have helped thousands of people in over 40 countries to create positive, breakthrough personal and social change in their lives and the lives of others.

Silard has been published in five countries, and his latest book is The Connection: Link Your Deepest Passion, Purpose, and Actions to Make a Difference in the World.

A PBS television show aired a 30-minute documentary on his life on television stations in over 40 U.S. states and various film festivals. He has also been featured on MSNBC, Voice of America and over 100 television stations and newspapers across America such as The San Francisco Chronicle and The Financial Times.

Silard’s conferences are unique in that he renders the line between personal leadership and organizational leadership virtually indistinguishable. He notes that a Harvard study found that 85% of a leader’s success is attributable to personal character, and defines leadership as “the capacity to build multiple relationships toward a common purpose.”

Prior to starting The Global Leadership Institute and The Center for Social Leadership, Silard founded and served for 8 years as CEO of an international organization based in Washington D.C. with offices in five countries for which he raised over $15 million and managed 35 employees.

Silard has been a Guest Lecturer on Corporate and Organizational Leadership at Harvard’s JFK School of Government, Georgetown Business School, Stanford Law School, University of California/Berkeley, Howard University, George Washington University’s Business School and many other universities.

Silard is currently the primary instructor for a national leadership program in Washington D.C. co-taught by professors from Oxford University’s Said School of Business, Yale University’s School of Management, Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business, Harvard Business School, Georgetown University’s McDonough School of Business and Harvard’s JFK School of Government. He is also the primary instructor for the only leadership program in Washington D.C. exclusively for low-income youth. Before launching his first organization, he served for two years in the Peace Corps in Kenya.
