Ed Doherty talks about Creating his own Leadership Game in Gurus & Game Changers Podcast Episode 003 

In every person’s journey, there comes a point when a transformation takes place. It could be a subtle shift or a dramatic turn-around that changes the entire course of their life. In the case of Ed Doherty, founder of One Degree Coaching, the transformation was nothing short of extraordinary. From a self-proclaimed “asshole chef” to a compassionate leader, Ed’s journey is a testament to the power of humility, self-awareness, and acceptance. Ed’s story begins in the hustle-bustle of the restaurant industry, where he admits to leading teams through dominance rather than connection. However, a personal struggle with alcoholism led him down a path of self-discovery, and an unlikely mentor helped him overcome his addiction. This journey not only reshaped his life but also his approach to leadership. 

Ed found inspiration in the culinary creativity sparked by Julia Child’s “The Art of French Cooking”. As he transitioned into leadership positions, he adopted a unique approach to cultivate engaged and successful teams, emphasizing the importance of authenticity, vulnerability, and a clear vision. One of the tools that played a significant role in Ed’s transformation is the Predictive Index. This tool cultivates self-awareness and understanding in the workplace, helping leaders to identify their strengths and weaknesses and better understand their team members. Ed’s partnership with Nick Bayer, CEO of Saxby’s in Philadelphia is inspiring to hear. 

Ed is committed to creating an ecosystem of success, where meaningful relationships and a high-performing work environment thrive. Ed’s journey is a powerful reminder that it’s never too late to change, grow, and redefine your path. It is an inspiring testament to the magic of human connection and the power of transformation. 

Ed Doherty’s story is a beacon of hope for anyone who has ever felt lost, proving that with self-awareness and the willingness to change, we can all find our way to become better leaders and better human beings. From overcoming personal obstacles to redefining leadership and fostering meaningful relationships, Ed Doherty’s transformation journey is nothing short of inspiring. His story serves as a powerful reminder that no matter where we start, we all have the potential to grow, evolve and inspire others along the way.
