Ron Minatrea’s passion for empowering middle leaders began during his own career as a Fortune 100 executive. For more than 30 years he worked in and across multiple disciplines. Leading domestic, international, and global operations, he was ultimately responsible for over $20 Billion dollars in annual shipments.
Experienced in building and growing new operations, he was also asked to lead in more challenging times of consolidation, outsourcing, downsizing, and migration to low-cost regions.
Over the years he developed a strong appreciation for the value and impact middle leaders have on an organization’s success. He became committed to engaging and equipping these key leaders. He also began to work with senior leaders to create environments where middle leaders are valued and can become successful – even when they don’t make the rules, define the goals, or set the strategies.
Today, Ron continues to empower middle leaders as a speaker, leadership development trainer, and executive coach. He helps individuals lead with greater focus, effectiveness, and fulfillment; and helps organizations increase engagement, improve execution, and create healthier cultures.
Scale Your Leadership
The very thing that makes leaders successful at one level may be what’s keeping them from expanding their leadership horizons for greater responsibility, impact, and influence.
This session is packed with practical action steps to help individuals move beyond their personal capacity to better envision, equip, and empower others.

Find Your Fresh
Today’s leaders want to make a difference, they want to understand their purpose, and know that their work matters. This keynote gives audiences practical tools for discovering a compelling personal – and professional vision, and for converting that vision into action that connects directly to the work we do every day.
Using the story of a donut shop, Find Your Fresh helps individuals discover what they uniquely have to offer – and where they’ll find their place of greatest fulfillment.
This message has helped leaders of all levels, from all over the world, find the unique blend of income, impact, and fulfillment that allows them to fully commit to their work without compromising their personal ambitions.
- Get crystal clear about what success means to you
- Establish priorities and goals that convert vision to action
- Discover how to make your most valuable contribution to any organization or cause
- Learn to perform beyond job descriptions and competency models
- Create a sustainable work/life balance
Grow Your We
A collection of individuals assigned to a common project does not make a team if each of the players continues to view their work through the lens of “what’s in this for me.” Their “me” is transformed into “we” when they form the bonds of mutual commitment, common objectives, and begin to adopt the shared identity of the team.
But often teams formed around a project, department, or functional lines maintain a “small we” mentality that creates an internal “us vs. them” division than kill the overall organization’s effectiveness.
In this keynote, Ron explores where and how these divisions occur, and offers a series of practical steps individuals can take to break down these walls – and helps them understand the value to themselves, their organization, and those they serve by continually growing their “we!”
- Break down the walls of “Us vs. Them”
- Learn to commit to the company cause without compromising your personal ambitions
- Identify the elements of a compelling cause
- Build trust and loyalty in the workplace
