Justin Patton

Nice to meet you!

Meet Justin

Justin Patton is an international speaker and Executive Leadership Coach who challenges leaders to think differently about how they lead and communicate. His high-energy and interactive approach keeps audiences engaged, and his message forces leaders to come face-to-face with themselves and tell the truth about how they are showing up.

On A Personal Note

Some more personal things you might not know about Justin is that he is an eagle scout, won a gold medal in the world with The Cavaliers Drum and Bugle Corps, and a silver medal in the world with The Pride of Cincinnati. His favorite place to vacation is on the Big Island of Hawaii. He loves to hike and his most memorable hike was at Mount Altissimo in Italy with friends.


The following core beliefs are a reflection of what I have studied and learned throughout my life. They are the foundation for the work I do as an executive coach and they offer you insight into my approach and the approach my team takes.

Everyone is a leader

You have no greater obligation than to take responsibility for your energy

Success is an inside-job

Everything meaningful happens through conversation

We all do the best we know how in the moment

Leadership is not about you, but it starts with you

Your power lies in your choices

Your choices represent the value you believe about yourself

Trust and communication are the foundation for every successful business

Every experience in life offers you the opportunity to show up better
