Noah Blumenthal

Noah is the Founder and President of Leading Principles, Inc., an executive coaching and consulting company that helps people see the best in themselves and become more confident, energized, and effective in their work. He is a coach, speaker, and published author.

Noah started his coaching career as a founding member of UBS Financial Services’ internal consulting group for team development and leadership coaching. He consulted to over one thousand line, management and executive teams and coached hundreds of team leaders on how to change their behaviors. In 2003 he followed his dream of building exceptional leadership skills with an even broader audience, and left UBS to start Leading Principles.

Noah is a seasoned speaker and trainer, delivering keynotes and workshops on executive coaching, individual development, and team building. He has been a guest lecturer at Columbia University, The New School, Baruch College, Fordham University, the American Society of Training and Development, and the International Coaching Federation.

Noah’s book, You’re Addicted to You was published by Berrett-Koehler in April, 2007. He has also written for magazines, including his articles "Keeping Your Coach Accountable" (OD Practitioner), "Where Succession Planning Ends" (Practicing) and "Faux Meetings" (Practicing).

Noah has a BA in Psychology with a minor in Philosophy from Brandeis University and has completed graduate work in Psychometrics at Fordham University and in Organizational Psychology at Columbia University.

Engaging Noah as a coach is one of the best decisions I have made for myself. Noah helped me set challenging, realistic goals and set me up for repeated success rather than burnout. In addition, we identified a process for hitting my goals that dealt head on with things that had been challenging for me in the past. Noah is an exceptional coach."
