For the past five years or so, Chip Lutz has driven the AATH into some amazing places, as past president, founder of the Humor Round Up and the man who made this Laughbox Podcast! In this episode he hands off the reigns of this glorious audio experience to Jim-Bob Williams and Katy BEE.
Chip Lutz, who is he? Well, we stole this directly from his website (link below). Listen as he describes his next life steps during this podcast!
Who is this Guy?
Lieutenant Commander Chip Lutz, USN(Ret), MSEd, CSP, is the President and founder of Unconventional Leader, LLC and has 30 years of solid leadership experience. A retired Navy Officer, he has had two command tours and also served as the Director of Security for Naval District Washington, DC during September 11th 2001. In that capacity, he was responsible for the safety and security of 25,000 people on 6 different Naval Installations in the National Capital Region during one of our Nations most trying times.
A seasoned educator and trainer, he is currently adjunct faculty for two different universities and has taught over 20 different classes in leadership, management, human resource development, and organizational behavior. He is the author of 5 books, is the father of 4 children, has 2 grandchildren, is the youngest of 6 children and remains, to this day, his mother’s favorite child.
Having spoken professionally full time since his retirement from the Navy, Chip has travelled all over the United States, sharing his message of leading unconventionally to organizations, associations, and military units. One of his favorite engagements was when he had the privilege of speaking to the team members at Sargento Foods (because he got a cheese gift basket).
Chip is a leader who has been there, done that, and has the uniform to prove it! He works with leaders who WANT to lead better, get more done, and leave a legacy. He is where theory meets application.
“If you want others to follow…GO FIRST!” -Chip Lutz

I try to build bridges between people and between organizations. If you came to my house you would find prints of the Brooklyn Bridge, the Wheeling suspension bridge, and the I-64 bridges over the Kanawha River in Charleston WV.
