Founder and Chief Strategist at Harrington Brands, Matt created his organization to help others in their pursuit of leading excellent companies and organizations.
Through culture, leadership and people, it is his belief that any organization can begin to build a holistic and pragmatic conversation about the different needs of any organization.
Having studying generations, interpersonal theories, organizational strategy and people skills for over a decade, Matt is seen as a subject matter expert on culture, people and leadership.
His book, Survival of the Hive: 7 Leadership Lessons from a Beehive looks at the macro- and micro-responsibilities of a queen bee and her relationship to a hive. Each chapter explores how the beehive functions through the characters of Zync, a queen-in-waiting, and her fellow bees. Using the bee colony as an allegory to illustrate leadership in an organized community, SOTH provides a working illustration of cultural complexity, leadership clarity, and the importance of trust as a foundation for excellence.
Wearing many hats (author, speaker, executive director of a 350 member Chamber of Commerce), Matt is keenly aware of the ever-changing field of leadership and employee development. Matt works with organizations to discuss the changing paradigm of learning, engagement and leadership. Said one recent client, “Matthew Harrington is one of my top favorite professional business consultants. Matt has a strong work ethic and is very passionate about the work he does, plus his in-depth knowledge about everything from small business to social media is right on target every time.”
