From Expression to Impact: The Uses of Arts-Based Experiential Learning in Leadership and Personal Coaching

presented by Fred Mandell, PhD

Fred Mandell uniquely combines his experience as a senior executive in a Fortune 100 company with that of a nationally collected visual artist and sculptor to help leaders, organizations and businesses challenge convention and achieve breakthrough performance. During his 21-year career as a senior executive at American Express Financial Advisors, Fred built leading marketing and sales businesses and ran a multi-billion-dollar investment company. He was responsible for introducing, testing and scaling an innovative, fee-based financial planning business model which transformed AEFA into the market leader.

In 2019 Fred founded, with Harvey Seifter, Creating Futures That Work (CFTW) a training and consulting firm that draws on the resonant power of arts-based experiential learning to help leaders globally create futures that matter. CFTW works with corporate clients in the areas of leadership, innovation, collaboration and organizational culture. Fred has taught the number one rated leadership program at MIT Sloan School of Management SIP Series called The Leader as Artist since 2013. He is also the co-author, with Kathleen Jordan, of Becoming a Life Change Artist: 7 Creative Skills to Reinvent Your Life at Any Stage.

As an artist Fred’s sculptures, paintings and drawings are in private and corporate collections. Most recently his bronze self-portrait has been commissioned for the international conference on “The Self/Le Soi” co-sponsored by the University of Chicago and the Sorbonne.

Fred holds a Ph.D. in history from the University of Chicago and an Ed.M. in psychology from Boston University.
