Quentin Schultze Bio
I am a writer, speaker, mentor, and consultant. I retired early from Calvin College to form the Center for Servant Leadership Communication, which promotes the art of “spacious communication” to help servant leaders become more generous, trustworthy, empathetic, and successful communicators. Watch for related publications in early 2016. You can follow my updates by subscribing to this blog (note the email subscription link in the left column of each page) and my Tweets (@quentinschultze).
I earned a PhD from the Institute of Communications Research at the University of Illinois in 1978 and eventually joined the faculty at Calvin College (Grand Rapids, MI), where I served until 2015 as the Arthur H. DeKruyter Chair and a Professor of Communication Arts and Sciences. I received the Presidential Award for Exemplary Teaching at Calvin College in 2000.
My numerous books include An Essential Guide to Public Speaking, which is used widely for teaching and mentoring people in the art of public speaking, Resume 101: A Student and Recent-Grad Guide to Crafting Resumes and Cover Letters that Land Jobs, and the forthcoming An Essential Guide to Interpersonal Communication. My scholarly publications have appeared in several dozen journals. I’ve written over a hundred articles for general-interest periodicals.
I’ve been quoted in many major media, including The Wall Street Journal, Newsweek, U.S. News & World Report, The Los Angeles Times, The New York Times, Fortune, the Chicago Tribune, USA Today, and many other publications. I’ve been interviewed by CNN, CBS, NBC, ABC, NPR, and lots of radio and television stations.

The “e” in “Schultze” is silent, by the way.
