Who I am
I was born in Manila, grew up in Chicago, lived in Dubai, and crisscrossed continents in between. So ask me where home is, and I’ll tell you, “the world.”
I tinker with ideas. I solve problems. I help people. I do a good job of grasping things, seeing below the surface, and looking at the big picture. They say everything is linked. I draw on these links to get a good sense for people and the world around us.
What I do
I identify and create algorithms with which to solve problems more effectively. From issues in daily life, to leadership and corporate challenges, to larger social concerns. These algorithms are conceptual, mathematical, and practical methods. This work is at the heart of my consulting, coaching and analysis for top leaders.
I'm also a philanthropist. I'm on the Board of Directors for the non-profit IMD Guest House Foundation in Chicago. I’ve done charity challenges with Gulf for Good and Emirates Association for the Blind, and jobs and career workshops for the community, in Dubai. I succeed only when I do good for others.
What I bring
I have a PhD in clinical psychology from Northwestern University - Feinberg School of Medicine (Chicago). I parlayed this into management consulting, and I’ve had the privilege of consulting for several multinationals in the US, Europe and Middle East. I've also had the pleasure of presenting at conferences in these regions, plus Asia and Africa.
In all, I bring over 30 years of experience advising, coaching, speaking, training - and delivering results for - thousands of clients across industries and regions.
I am Ron Villejo, PhD, and this is my management consulting firm.
