Curt Wang – Collaborative Brain Trust

Consultant Curt Wang


I am an executive coach who is passionate about helping smart, creative and successful executives and leaders live their best careers, lead bold initiatives and take on higher levels of responsibility.

I work with my clients to tap into their strengths, values, expertise and experiences so that they can develop a better awareness of who they are or can be when they are at their very best. When we develop this understanding, I challenge each individual to activate their full potential to be a stronger leader, manager and collaborator. These skills help them achieve their goals and make significant contributions to their organizations.
