Program Co-Director, Executive Certificate in Transformational Leadership Programs: Executive Certificate in Transformational Leadership, Certificate in Leadership Coaching Randy Chittum is an executive coach who works with executives and managers worldwide in a variety of organizational settings.  He works at all levels of the organization, specializing in leadership development (coaching, teaching, systems, & infrastructure) and organization development. Randy regularly consults with organizations in the areas of emotional intelligence, coaching, succession planning, and leading change. He is at his best when “playing in traffic,” a metaphor he uses to describe his teaching and consulting style. The core of his approach is mindfulness. Randy believes that a leader’s ability to slow the action and reflect on one’s internal landscape is the key to leading effectively in a world often characterized by uncertainty, volatility, ambiguity, and increasing complexity. Leaders in today’s world have to become comfortable in the paradox of “being still while in motion.” He recently served as Vice President, Leadership Development at a publicly traded company, where he reported to the CEO and coached executives, created and managed succession planning programs, taught leaders, and worked with intact teams to enhance performance.  Randy currently serves on the faculty of the Georgetown University Leadership Coaching program in the Institute of Transformational Leadership. He has previously taught leadership and organizational development at both the undergraduate and graduate level at Georgetown University, among others. He is a contributing author to On Becoming a Leadership Coach (2008).  Randy earned his Ph.D. in Psychology from the University of Northern Colorado. Randy can be reached at
