Dr. Edward M. Marshall is a pioneer in helping us understand the power of collaborative leadership cultures, cultures that are principle-based, build high trust, are ethical, and empower the workforce to be their best selves and do their best work. He comes by his passion for workplace empowerment honestly. Not only did recover from polio, but he also recovered from his highy dysfunctional family that disempowered everyone. His recovery helped him learn what it takes to empower oneself and others.
Early in his career, he worked in the Civil Rights movement, the community economic development movement, and other social justice movements designed to empower people and to achieve equality. This mission took him into workplace empowerment as a management consultant, where for 35 years he worked with senior leadership at some of the world’s leading corporations, like DuPont, Marriott, Microsoft, and Philips, helping them create collaborative solutions to their critical business and people challenges.
Now, as a Professor at Duke University, he continues his mission empowering tomorrow’s leaders, helping them learn how to build high trust relationships in their teams, to be ethical above reproach, and to become collaborative leaders.
