Executive Advisor & Leadership Speaker

Joe Caruso, Caruso, leadership speaker and executive advisor

After experiencing a life-altering event while he was still in college, Joe Caruso decided to commit whatever time he had left to spending five hours per day, five days per week, studying life. He wanted to find what he calls the Simple, Common, Timeless Human Truths about life.

Joe began to systematically collect and analyze his findings based on research and study of the greatest philosophers, leaders, and psychoanalysts of all time, as well as religions, myths, and ancient cultures and societies. His efforts culminated in a best-selling book in 6 languages that earned 5 stars on Amazon, and PBS special, both called "The Power of Losing Control," as well as a highly successful career as a compelling and engaging leadership keynote speaker. Joe has been recognized by Nightengale-Conant as one of the "50 Most Influential Minds in Personal Development".

In response to the radically changed world of today,
Joe Caruso is offering his daily, weekly, and monthly thoughts and comments to this new community in an exclusive way
never done before.


Joe Caruso learned to leverage his expertise in leadership and mind development as a speaker and advisor, sharing his understanding that ‘collective mind’ is another way to think about ‘businesses and organizations’. With that, Joe set about applying his tried and true approach of studying life to studying the Simple, Common, Timeless, Truths about business and organizational success, resulting in the Caruso Leadership Process for optimizing outcomes in any organization. Joe’s breakthrough process understands and applies the knowledge of the individual mind to the collective mind of an organization. The results are undeniable.

Joe is now acclaimed as one of the most respected business, organizational, and executive advisors in the world. He is the only non-multinational CEO to be invited to address the Admirals and Generals at the National Defense University as a leadership speaker. Joe has also been invited to teach and share his findings at the Kenan-Flagler Business School and the Naval Post-Graduate Academy, and he was named one of the "50 Most Influential Minds in Personal Development by Nightingale-Conant".

Joe’s consistent success in behavioral change and outcome in organizations is because of his primary focus: how the mind behind our behavior naturally thinks and how it can adapt to new thinking.

Caruso Leadership's goal is to effectively help other people achieve their goals and enjoy the process. We learned 25 years ago that businesses operate as a collective mindset. When we understand how the individual mind works, and we can take the same principles that link meaning, behavior, and outcome in an individual mind and apply them to the collective mind of the organization.

The process creates change and improves outcomes every time for one simple reason: our work is based on the natural way that all human beings function. It's proven to identify the core issues preventing business breakthroughs and to guide organizations through to an optimized outcome where all contributors get behind the vision.

Helping people let go of one way of thinking requires a compelling,​ new​ way of thinking. It isn’t just training. It isn’t just an information dump. It’s a thought-out, deliberate, and proven process. And Caruso Leadership does it best.
