Leadership expert Dwight Frindt is an author, executive consultant and coach and skilled facilitator. He has been a Vistage Chair in Orange County, CA since 1994 and a Best Practice Chair in Orange County since 2009. He has also been a Best Practice Chair for the Pacific Northwest since 2010. “What keeps individuals motivated? What gets team members focused, collaborating, and acting effectively for a common purpose? What keeps organizations productive and agile?” These questions have driven Dwight’s passion as a business leader, and his philosophy as leadership expert. In 1990, this inquiry proved so compelling it inspired him to launch 2130 Partners. The executive leadership development and education firm continues to make these three questions central to its work. They are also the key questions that drove his new book, “Accelerate: High Leverage Leadership for Today’s World,” which he co-authored with his wife and business partner, Suzanne Frindt. “Accelerate” is not a theoretical book on leadership, but rather a practical resource for leaders to refer to when faced with the daily challenges of managing their teams and their businesses. This book is the result of 20 years “in the trenches” with leaders helping them solve their issues and take their businesses to new levels of success. Working with clients, Dwight draws on decades of operational management and executive experience. Prior to founding 2130 Partners, he held executive positions in mining, heavy construction, nuclear plant construction management, real estate acquisition and investment management. Before his business career Dwight earned an MBA from Harvard Business School and a B.A. in Geology from Northwestern University.
