For Immediate Release: Who is Sean Ryan?

We are so thrilled to announce today, February 7, 2018, Sean Ryan has joined the ARC team.

Sean Ryan has been in the realm of leadership development, and working with teams for nearly a decade.  One of his passions is taking back the story of Fraternity & Sorority Life.  Rather than sitting back and allowing the media to control our narrative, Sean Ryan works to empower students to author a more authentic portrayal of our communities.  As a graduate student at The University of Iowa, he joined Phi Gamma Delta (FIJI) as a founding father where he learned the value of student organization membership.  His accolades and certifications are too numerous to count but here are a few that are sure to impress: certified mediator, Myers Briggs/MBTI practitioner, and low ropes challenge facilitator...

To: The Ambitious, From: The Experienced | 26 Letters on Leadership

I have had this dream for awhile, and I’m thrilled to announce it’s officially a reality!

I wondered... what would it look like if I took 26 of the most fascinating people I know and asked them to write a personal story and lesson on leadership? From the instant this project started, I knew we struck gold. The final product? To: The Ambitious, From: The Experienced: 26 Letters on Leadership.

This isn’t your typical leadership book, in fact, it’s designed to be different. I asked people from all walks of life... from an Engineer at Google, to a Cosmetologist and Fitness Icon appearing in magazines across the country to participate. I am thrilled with the results, I think you will be too!

Available December 1st!

3 Life Lessons I Learned from Ordering Mac & Cheese

How it All Began

Online dating is complicated and obnoxious, but oddly, it is not considered weird… anymore.
