About Kotter International

Our mission: We guide, educate, and inspire people to become better leaders, to successfully transform organizations that enrich lives today and build a better world for future generations.

After 30 years of teaching at Harvard Business School and writing over 18 books, Professor Kotter decided to start a company that would arm leaders to tackle the challenges of today. Whether it's gaining a competitive edge, launching new products, or avoiding hazards — Kotter International helps organizations execute their strategy, and leaves them with the capability to take on future business challenges and react to them quickly with agility and direction.

Superior Leadership

We deeply believe in the power of great leadership, and we are dedicated to inciting more and better leaders at all levels in society. We encourage people who are authentic and truthful, who mobilize groups to achieve amazing results (not just good results), and who help organizations transform themselves to deal with a rapidly changing world.


We have faith that our vision is possible, and we are dedicated to achieving it. Since our vision is not just a lofty goal, our work together must be extraordinary. Simply being better than everyone else is not enough. With an A++ attitude toward all we do, we will make a difference to many people and we will make Kotter International a very exciting, rewarding and meaningful place to work.

Hearts and Minds

We strongly believe in the power of not leaving our emotions at home. We strive to liberate people – ourselves and others – by allowing them to bring to work the whole package of passion and whimsy and desire for love, fun, or even to be a hero. And we know that drawing on both hearts and minds can make great things happen, which is what all great leaders do.

Relentless Learning

We are curious, and then some. We value learning, not for learning’s sake, but to relentlessly find and apply ideas that will help us achieve more, as an organization and as individuals, alongside our customers. We will never cease to become better at what we do and better people, because we – each and every one of us – will never stop growing.

People Everywhere

We deeply value ALL people. We believe in them. We respect them. Trust them. We stand humbly before them. We care about their careers and their lives. This is not just customers, stockholders and employees, but people young and old, from every corner of the globe.
