The Socratic
Leader Academy

The Socratic Leader Academy is the culmination of Anthony Howard’s life’s work to be the artisan of new humanity. It has one purpose – to apply timeless wisdom to the challenges challenging humanity – and a vision to create a space outside the walls of your busy life where you can engage in deep conversation, and from where you can derive new wisdom and insight for your life, your leadership and your legacy.

My story…

Anthony Howard is a CEO, entrepreneur, mentor, philosopher, and author – who has made a life out of questions. Anthony started his unusual career at 17 when he left school for the merchant navy – a decision which would ultimately reveal his gift for listening and asking insightful questions. He has transitioned from student to navigator, from lay minister to business manager, and from mentor to confidant to senior leaders and CEOs across four continents and almost every industry, helping leaders navigate complex and demanding environments so they can perform and lead at their best.

 

During a 15 year global dialogue, he has met and interviewed countless leaders and influencers, and developed a unique perspective on leadership and the future. While speaking at a conference in the US a decade ago, a delegate referred to Anthony as The CEO whisperer. The term stuck.
