Introduction: Develop Major League Leadership with The Leadership Doc! Inspiring, engaging, and practical keynotes and workshops based on over 100 interviews with MLB managers and players. I provide high energy, interactive, and empowering keynote addresses, hands on skill building workshops (when you want to dig deeper into an area than a keynote), and one on one coaching programs which inspire people to cultivate their leadership using personal, strategic, and actionable strategies. My keynotes and workshops are eye opening, interesting, and practical, and my coaching strategic and focused. My goal is to use all my tools to help you, my client, to develop your leadership, become a stronger (and happier) producer, and in turn help develop the leadership of those around you as well. Many of my recent work has centered around my book, Lead Me Out to the Ballgame: Stories and Strategies to Develop Major League Leadership. The book, as well as my presentations based on it, explores the "Ten Bases of Leadership" which were identified from over 100 interviews with Major League Baseball players, managers, and executives. Through the stories and strategies I share with my audience, participants, and clients, I help people in all walks of life to become Major League Leaders. Leadership is fun, it's fun to take hold of your passion and help others to do the same! What do I enjoy about my work? I love seeing the aha moments when I present keynotes, love to help clients develop actionable strategies to improve their organizations, and love to help people in all walks of life to become stronger contributors in all they do. I love to use quotes in my presentations, so I'll share one of mine.. "Realizing your potential, reaching your potential, and helping others to realize and reach theirs as well...that's leadership!" - Howard C. Fero, PhD, The Leadership Doc

The Hamden Regional Chamber of Commerce was thrilled to have Dr. Howard Fero present at our annual Women in Business meeting. His presentation on “Cultivating Exemplary Leadership” truly inspired and motivated those in attendance. Many of the attendees spoke on how his concepts will help them improve in many personal and professional areas of their lives. Thank you Dr. Howard Fero for your fantastic presentation, we look forward to having you speak in the near future!

Howard Fero has had a major impact on the way I look at and lead my team. He has been a driving force behind the exponential growth and success of the team over the past few years, helping us to create and work towards short term goals and a long term vision which have helped us to realize where we are and where we want to be. In addition to my individual sessions with Howard, he conducts workshops with the team, helping them to understand each other’s personalities, set goals and stay motivated, and communicate with each other most effectively. Thanks to Howard’s guidance and support, the team works better and more effectively. I look forward to continuing to work with Howard in the future as our team continues to grow and succeed.

Recently, Dr. Fero ended our company leadership workshop on the highest of high notes. Dr. Fero delivered a passionate keynote on how to effectively lead others on a daily basis. The Ten Bases of Leadership is not just a baseball theme, it is a leadership theme that every person can benefit from to help unleash the leader within. We appreciated how he incorporated our company vision, products, and mission into the presentation. Leadership delivered in the most professional, personalized, and motivating way. Thank you for everything!

Dr. Howard Fero conducted a workshop in which all of the personnel of the Orange Police Department, not just the supervisors, learned about the importance of coaching and mentoring. At the same time, everyone learned how to build their personal leadership skills, and how to use that knowledge for the betterment of our organization and our community. Howard was very skillful at engaging our personnel in dialogue which I’m confident will be of great assistance in the pursuit of our vision.
Background Check

Howard Fero


  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I do have baseline pricing but each client and organization is different.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    When I begin working with a new customer I like to discuss their goals for our project as well as their long term goals for their organization. Whether I am presenting a keynote or 'digging' into issues that the organization is having it is useful for me to see the big picture so that we can create the best course of action and I can weave in the message that you the client are seeking.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I hold a PhD in Organizational Behavior from Claremont Graduate University and an MS in Industrial and Organizational Psychology from Baruch College, The City University of New York. In addition to my work as "The Leadership Doc" I am also a Professor of Management and Leadership, working with graduate students to help them become stronger contributors to their organizations.
