About The Authors
LDT CEO, Mr. Steve Carroll is an accomplished Chief Executive Officer who assumed the presidency of our organization in 1993 from the founder following a very successful and distinguished career with Burroughs/Unisys and Hillenbrand Industries. Mr. Carroll is a professional trainer and has taught thousands of employees how to be the “CEO of themselves”; teaching them that they are the most important client they serve and showing them how helping themselves ultimately contributes to the success of the organization. After all, the most valuable resource a person has is oneself, and we teach them how to best utilize this most valuable resource.
Since Mr. Carroll assumed the presidency of our organization, we have evolved from a traditional platform and workbook training organization to an organization that produces multifaceted solutions for our clients. Providing both CD and DVD- based training modules as well as online content, we are capable of developing customized solutions. We can also offer a variety of assessment tools that can be tailored to the unique needs of any organization regardless of size, industry or locations.
Mr. Carroll has an extensive background, living and working in overseas assignments and has operated in many countries as a trainer, consultant, business advisor, and Director of Operations for a Fortune 500 Company.
He got his first taste of Talent Development early on. His first job was as a tennis instructor, where he developed nationally-ranked players and even All Americans. Now thousands of salespeople and customer service personnel look to him and his content development expertise to improve their skills and value as today’s organizations attempt to gain that competitive edge as service providers.
