ABOUT HELMUT HERDER

Knowledge. Ideas. Passion.

Helmut’s story:

One thing I will never forget that my father taught me was “YOU CAN DO ANYTHING IF YOU PUT YOUR MIND TO IT”. My Father was living proof of that and set a lifelong example for me. He was 18 years old when he was forced into the war, where he was severely wounded, with injuries to his right side as well as losing a leg. But that did not hold him back and he advanced to a very high leadership position within the German Railroad.

 

After my early education, I graduated from an apprentice program and then served my mandatory time in the German Luftwaffe (Airforce). After dreaming most of my boyhood of wanting to go to America, my dream came true in 1969 and I was sponsored by a master Sergeant of the U.S. Military to immigrate to the United States.

 

I arrived in the United States with a suitcase, $100.00 dollars and no knowledge of the English language. It was a huge personal challenge for me. The day my sponsor picked me up from the airport he told me that he had been transferred to South Korea and would not be here to help me get acclimated. I then lost the job he had lined up for me because I could not communicate with the employees in English. My sponsor was leaving my new country and I had no job, car or place to sleep. I felt like calling my father to tell him to send me a ticket to come home. But I just could not call my Dad and tell him I was not making it. As a man of faith, I turned to God and placed myself in His hands. The answers were amazing and there is not time enough to explain all of it in here. Contact me if you would like me to come to your group or company to share my story.

 

After almost 40 years in various leadership roles within several companies, and now as a business owner, I recognize the effects that the Laws of Leadership have on an individual’s personal growth and success. I am certified with the John Maxwell team and personally implementing the philosophies behind personal development for many years. I continue to use these skills to enhance my own productivity and decision-making, as well as guide others on their own paths to success.

 

My proven coaching process and leadership training is relevant for people at all levels in their career paths. I would like to help you reach your goals and purpose through an intentional plan of development. Working together through planning and accountability, we can create and implement a plan for your growth.
