About The Author

Craig Dowden (Ph.D.) is a highly respected executive coach with the Forbes Coaches Council as well as an award-winning speaker who delivers interactive, evidence-based workshops that translate the science of leadership, team, and organizational excellence into everyday practice.

His first book, Do Good to Lead Well: The Science and Practice of Positive Leadership was published by Forbes in early 2019. The book was endorsed by over thirty CEOs and top-rated TED speakers, including Adam Grant and Marshall Goldsmith. It quickly achieved best-seller status and was immediately picked up for national distribution by Chapters/Indigo.

Grounded in scientific research, Craig’s unique approach to leadership has been driven by his lifelong passion to help people achieve their full potential, both professionally and personally. Craig’s two decades of executive coaching experience coupled with his interviews with top thought leaders in the world has resulted in a very practical approach that will appeal to current and future executives.

Craig has been a regular contributor to, and featured expert in, top-tier leadership and business publications including Forbes, Fast Company, the Financial Post, the Huffington Post, Financial Times, the Globe and Mail, and Psychology Today.

Craig was recognized as one of Ottawa’s “Forty under 40” business leaders by the Ottawa Business Journal, a select group of individuals who “exemplify leadership, entrepreneurship and community building.” These leaders are chosen using three criteria: career accomplishments, professional expertise, as well as community and charitable involvement.
