Life Outside the Hustle with Brent Tieri

Oct 1, 2019

Tom Eddington is one of Silicon Valley’s most renowned business advisors and coaches and works with some of the nation’s most influential CEOs and non-profit leaders, advising them on everything from global mergers and organizational change to conscious leadership and life/balance integration.

His extraordinary journey towards serving in these capacities has been one that few leaders ever take. From transformational successes to severe and debilitating personal challenges, Tom developed a rare coaching style and practice that is as much of a spiritual awakening as it is a meteoric rise in the corporate world as an owner in one of the globe’s most influential management consulting firms.

Many of his clients come to him seeking a sense of serenity after years of working in toxic leadership positions. With a focus on conscious discipline, he offers them a unique blend of executive management guidance and spiritual coaching.

Tom’s wealth of life experiences gives him the scope, empathy, and compassion required to help his clients make profound personal and professional shifts in their lives. “I help them find a sense of living as a whole person by exploring a deeper understanding of their inner compass.”
