Randy White

Randall White is an executive development coach, internationally known author, and leadership educator in classrooms around the world. He is founding partner of the Executive Development Group in Greensboro, NC, an adjunct professor at the Fuqua School of Business, Duke University, an HEC (Paris) Affiliate Professor, and teaches with Duke Corporate Education (in Durham, London, Johannesburg, and Ahmedabad) and IE Business School (Madrid).

Randy’s overall approach involves triangulation of extensive qualitative interviews and instrumentation to provide deep insights into the pattern of strengths and weaknesses that an executive brings to the role. He has written a popular article published by the Center for Creative Leadership called Four Essential Ways That Coaching Can Help Executives, which outlines his approaches to executive coaching. These include coaching for skill, for development, for remediation, and for the executive’s agenda. Most often Randy works with C-suite and high potential executives, typically around development issues and the executive’s agenda. About a quarter of his work is for remediation. Additionally, because he is co-author of Breaking the Glass Ceiling, Randy is often asked to counsel and coach women in senior leadership roles. Randy also teaches other psychologists and psychotherapists how to do coaching through APA and through the College of Executive Coaching.

Most recently Randy wrote the capstone chapter in a new book, The Perils of Accentuating the Positive, Hogan Press. He is co-author of Relax, It's Only Uncertainty and The Future of Leadership: Riding the Corporate Rapids into the 21st Century, as well as the Ambiguity Architect, a survey of how a person handles uncertainty. Randy has previously taught at the Johnson Graduate School, Cornell University, and was formerly the Director of Specialized Client Applications at the Center for Creative Leadership where he was responsible for all custom programs and executive coaching engagements. He is a former president of the Society of Consulting Psychologists (SCP), Division 13 of the American Psychological Association, a fellow in Divisions 1 and 13 of APA, and a former national board member of the American Society for Training and Development. He currently leads SCP’s international special interest group. Randy holds an AB from Georgetown University, an MS from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and a PhD from Cornell.

A competitive yachtsman, Dr. White contributes consulting time to Save The Children and other international philanthropic causes. He resides in Southport, NC, where he sails, plays tennis, cycles, and walks his bearded collie.
