Glenn’s Bio

Glenn Geffcken

Drawing from a varied career in both large and small business with a background in sales, business development, sponsorship, large scale event production, publishing, and sustainability, Glenn has a keen ability to help business leaders and professionals cut through hidden dynamics that block progress and bring to light those things which open leaders to new possibilities.

In parallel to his business career Glenn has spent many years deeply immersed in Indigenous culture and spirituality. Through this immersion Glenn feels he has learned as much about leadership and innovation from indigenous elders and ceremonies as he has from his business experience.

Glenn is the author of Shift: Indigenous Principles for Corporate Change, a personal story about how Glenn came to acquire from indigenous culture the wisdoms he has related to organizational dynamics and how to apply them to the art of doing business. Glenn writes a bi-weekly blog, Heart & Mind, which is about integrating the heart and mind to strengthen intuition, improve communications, and develop culture.

Glenn mentors and guides business leaders to break through barriers and move beyond. Glenn and his wife and partner Maria Rueda offer workshops and retreats that support participants in an enjoyable way to strengthen their personal culture so that they may in turn strengthen their organizational culture.

Glenn enjoys spirituality, sharing his life with Maria, being in service to the greater good, sustainability, wholesome food, and the outdoors.
