Randy Kay founded PACEsetters pursuant to a 30-plus year extensive and multi-disciplinary study of exemplary leaders to determine the characteristics and skills demonstrated by thriving individuals who make big impacts not just for themselves, but for others as well. These leaders with high integrity were eventually called PACEsetters, based on the four foundations upon which these thriving and impactful individuals excelled: Purpose, Attitude, Connection, and Energy. Corresponding skills were subsequently determined for developing each foundation to its fullest, which became known as The Power to Thrive! workshop and book authored by Kay. Most recently, Kay worked with Meritcore to develop the Thriving Mindset Leadership (TML) course, a training platform based a several-year study of resiliency completed by Dr. Wayne Hammond, president and executive director of Resiliency Initiatives.
Kay has been an accomplished CEO of four successful companies, humanitarian, corporate executive for Fortune 100 companies such as Johnson & Johnson, and a success trainer for some of the most accomplished people and companies in the world. He is a transformational change-maker who is pioneering a new definition of success that encourages people to follow their unique journey and reach their singular destination. Kay has shared his knowledge and the collective experience of generations of success “masters” in Daily Keys to Success, the world’s most comprehensive compendium of success factors for improving one’s skills and abilities to produce a thriving life; and, is soon to release his newest books, The 22 Most Important Things and The Power to Thrive!
