Fast, light, disruptive leadership at scale.


Geoffrey Helt, Founder + Strategy, Innovation and Culture Catalyst  geoff@breakawayleader.com

Geoff has spent 20 years working with leaders and executive teams of blue chip firms and start-up ventures across all sectors.  He possesses an uncanny ability to unearth one’s strengths while at the same time quickly assessing an organization’s toughest problems through his thoughtful, intuitive and inquisitive manner.  Decades of client engagements and direct executive relationships have shaped and informed his leadership transformation methodology.

Geoff believes that leadership, like any craft, is something that can be learned, practiced and developed.  He believes leadership development is not a phase in one’s journey in work and life – exceptional leaders push themselves past performance thresholds every single day.  That is how they break away from the pack.

Geoff has uncovered fundamental truths for extraordinary leadership.  These truths do not lie within leadership frameworks, competencies, coaching, or packaged programs.  These truths lie within the individual leader.  Leaders are always “doing the work” to push their edge, they are masters of the unknown,  they amplify their distinctive genius and they create extra capacity to create change ahead of the curve.  Leadership is a “way of being” rather than adherence to a set of capabilities.

BreakAway was created to take this insight to the masses and unleash the potential for leaders to step up and change the game.

Geoff resides in Bend, Oregon with his family and continually pushes his personal performance thresholds via cycling, mountain biking, hiking and snowboarding throughout the Cascade mountain range.
