Emotionally intelligent leaders are influencers, constantly striving to make the world a better place.


Alfred made a conscious choice not to let his past dictate who he became. A double major in economics and business led to a MBA from the University of California and a career in international banking.

While working in 20+ countries, Alfred experienced some verystressful business cultures. Combining his experience of releasing trauma with his knowledge of the massive stress of corporate life, Alfred's mission is to share the necessary skills to thrive in traumatic work environments.

Alfred Ricci has 10+ years of teaching personal development workshops, including methods to release severe trauma. Rising from the ashes and harnessing the power of his early years — living in shelters, a group home, and a foster home while attending six high schools in four years — Alfred reveals how even the most daunting obstacles can be overcome.

There were always people along the way who supported me. I am paying it forward to as many people as I can. Every company, project, and client is an opportunity to make something better and to help others.

My focus is serving others by sharing what I’ve learned from an extraordinary life.
