Peggy Grande   -  Volunteer Faculty at the Leadership Institute

Peggy Grande

Ronald Reagan chose Peggy Grande to work at his side for 10 years, and together they created a powerful partnership.

Serving as his post-presidency Executive Assistant, Peggy was the liaison between President Reagan personally and his staff, the public, local dignitaries and world leaders.  She ensured that his events, travel, personal and political relationships and day to day operations were handled efficiently and effectively.  She had a front row seat to history and got to know Ronald Reagan the man, not just the president.  Sitting right outside Ronald Reagan’s office every day, her private observations are steeped in timeless principles of leadership, and have meaning and relevance for today's business environment, as well as for the future.

From Presidential protocol to meticulous project and event management, Peggy's expertise and exacting standards deliver World-Class Results.   She helps today's executives and executive assistants navigate complexity with clarity and diplomatically defuse even the most sensitive issues with tact and positive outcomes.  Peggy helps navigate the murky waters of business mediocrity with confidence and excellence.

As a speaker, Peggy demonstrates “How to WOW” the Reagan way, talks about the Science of Fascination, and inspires audiences to lead and live with greater impact, challenging everyone to create a positive and lasting legacy both personally and professionally.  Peggy currently promotes and expands leadership excellence through corporate retreats, executive training and keynote speaking.  She also is a certified adviser for the Fascination Assessment.

A graduate of Pepperdine University with a degree in Organizational Communications and Business, Peggy enjoys the support of her husband and their four diverse and accomplished children.
