Scott Wozniak grew up on stage, performing lead roles before crowds of thousands by middle school and tens of thousands by the end of high school. After a college degree in Musical Theater Performance and professional level experience, he realized he didn’t actually love the craft. He did love how it had enabled him to impact others, but that isn’t the only way to make a difference. So, Scott dove into the non-profit world, trying out various ways to be a positive influence, from youth programs and sports camps, to leading national tours for Focus on the Family and even pastoring churches.
In the process, he became a leader and discovered (the hard way) that leaders require more than talent and good intentions, that success also requires systems and strategies. He spent years upgrading his understanding of organizations and himself, including being mentored by best-selling authors and billionaires, traveling the globe, earning multiple leadership coach certifications and a Master’s Degree in Organizational Leadership.
In 2002, Scott began coaching and consulting with leaders, helping them take their organizations to the next level. He’s consulted leaders on six continents working in multi-billion-dollar global companies, software start-ups, Ivy League universities, and national healthcare initiatives. Also, for eight years he slid his consulting practice to the side to serve as an employee of the Chick-fil-A headquarters, working directly with their top leaders on company strategy and leading the implementation of major change programs. Though no longer an employee there, he continues to consult with their leaders and speak at their events today.
In addition to leading Swoz Leadership, Scott has written two books (and has a third coming out in 2019), is an active member of Mensa (international genius society), reads over 200 books each year, has founded three other organizations, and risks his life as often as he can in a variety of ways, from heli-skiing to Spartan Races.
Scott lives in Atlanta, GA with his wife and four children.
