Matthew R. Kutz, Ph.D. is a Fulbright scholar, award-winning professor, textbook author, and leadership consultant. But the words and titles that describe him best and the ones he most cherishes are husband, dad, and friend. He is on the faculty at Bowling Green State University’s College of Education and Human Development, is a popular conference speaker, and conducts seminars and workshops on Contextual Intelligence and many other leadership-related topics. He works with Fortune 500 companies, schools, hospitals, churches, professional associations and societies, and other for-profit and non-profit organizations. Some of his clients include: Procter & Gamble, Marathon Petroleum Co., ProMedica Health System, and World Relief.
Dr. Kutz earned his Ph.D. in Global Leadership from Lynn University in Boca Raton, FL, M. S. and M.Ed. degrees from the University of Toledo, and a B.A. from Anderson University. His research has been published in dozens of peer-reviewed journals and he has taught leadership and organizational development as an adjunct professor for Regent University, Central Michigan University, Palm Beach Atlantic University and Spring Arbor University. He is also a Licensed Athletic Trainer, and has served as a head athletic trainer for USA Track and Field, Team USA in international competitions and has consulted with the Honduran Olympic Committee and the Rwandan National Olympic and Sport Committee.
Matt is influenced heavily by his faith. He is a son of a pastor; in fact, he even served as a pastor for several years and still functions as an ordained minister. His personal philosophy of leadership comes from Paul’s letter to the Romans, where he states, “if God has given you leadership ability, take the responsibility seriously” Romans 12:8 (NLT). Matt subscribes to the belief that leadership is a serious responsibility that needs to be pursued and developed with diligence. He lives in Perrysburg, Ohio with the love of his life and best friend Angie and their two sons Nathan and Jonathan.
