Matthew Q. Lesser: When Less is More

In this episode of Championship Leadership, we had an incredible conversation with Matthew Lesser, a dynamic Speaker, Strategic Leadership Consultant, Coach, and Best-Selling Author of Unsatisfied: When Less is More. After earning two degrees in business courses in college, Matthew eventually winds up working in their family business. But he soon discovered that their oil industry business was in trade debt, which made him spiral into clinical depression. Determined to end his life and sufferings, Matt’s mother then brought him to a successful local businessman for advice and to help them start over and grow the business. Ten years later, they decided to sell the business, and Matthew pursued private equity, where his passion for leadership was ignited.

After years of working in the private equity world, banking, and helping people build an executive team, Matthew decided to write his book, which mostly inspires from his experiences working with different business leaders.

Now, Matthew is aspiring to help every leader become more self-aware and grow through his consulting business Uniquely Normal.
