Matt Whiat

My WHY is to put others in the driver’s seat and help them achieve their greatness.


Matt draws on his 20 years of leadership experience as a former US Air Force Officer to help organizations create cultures that put people first. In 2011, while on Active Duty with the US Air Force, one of Matt’s missions was to escort Simon Sinek into Afghanistan.

On this fateful trip and through an unusual set of circumstances Matt became not only a believer in Simon’s work, but a brother for life. Simon walked away with an idea that later became his second book, Leaders Eat Last.


Making Changes Based on Listening

Leadership Checklist

Time is the Currency of Leadership, Spend it Wisely


The foundation of Matt's teachings are a combination of his US Air Force leadership experience and the people-centric leadership tools developed by the Barry-Wehmiller Leadership Institute, of which he is a Partner.

Matt travels around the world working with clients in a variety of industries such as government, education, professional athletics, hospitality, consumer products, healthcare, finance, manufacturing, non-profit, pharmaceuticals, media and retail.


The overwhelming response from our audience, especially those who have been to our past events, was that Matt delivered EXACTLY what they were hungry for. Matt has an authentic chemistry that helped the audience feel encouraged rather than intimidated. Matt's vulnerability in sharing his personal story, and then tying it into hands on tools that anyone can use to build relationships, was inspirational. If you are looking for an experience that stresses the "how" of building unity and purpose in an organization, Matt and company is the real deal.


Matt, I wanted to personally thank you for the time you spent with our class earlier this month. It's obvious to me and everyone else in attendance, you were made for this purpose.
