Whether motivating homeless people, college students, or executives, Tiger Todd has tapped into something real – the ability to discover root problems, develop multidimensional solutions, and produce sustainable change, fast.
Realizing that the lives of thousands of homeless people were being wasted on the streets, Tiger Todd took it upon himself to do something about it. He retired from the electronics company he founded and applied his talents to helping people break free from homelessness and repeated history.
Tiger’s Hero School® model introduced a new philosophy and psychological framework to the Millennial Generation by bridging the math of movies with the lessons of mythology to help real people quickly produce “epic” real-world outcomes.
Two decades later, Tiger is the leading expert in homelessness intervention, prevention and reversal, as well as human engagement, motivation and multidimensional learning. His pioneering work in education led to the modern hero movement as well as many hundreds of strategies used by public schools, academia and myriad businesses, agencies and non-profit organizations.
More than 20 years after introducing the art and science of “hero” through his cutting-edge presentations and action philanthropy, Tiger’s movie formulas continue to revolutionize the education, behavioral and entertainment industries. More importantly, multiplied thousands more students and employees are now adding value first, taking responsibility, learning from leaders, and contributing to their company, mission and success.
As a speaker, Tiger is a force of nature, rather, a force of mythology. His captivating delivery, non-verbal mastery, common-sense lessons and no-nonsense style reach diverse listeners regardless of character, class or culture. Atypical among motivators, his expertise and experiences from pioneering the science of numerous concepts and subjects is unmatched. His keen understanding of human engagement and ignition, rapid-fire quotes of entire literary passages, stunning athletic feats and hilarious impersonations keep his audiences fully engaged and unable to argue with his depth, substance and message.
Tiger understands many of the challenges that employers and leaders face with both legacy and next-generation employees, including how to neutralize excuses, increase initiative and responsibility, and learn to think, discover root problems and lead.
Growing up in Las Vegas the son of an entrepreneur, Tiger overcame being run over by a drunk driver – and chicken pox in the body cast – by befriending and learning from teachers and his dad’s clients. Applying these lessons after his parents’ divorce helped the 6th grade Tiger earn $600-a-month in recyclables by dumpster-diving every day after school. These challenges clearly helped forge his work ethic, his Laws of Intrepraneurship™ and a heart for helping the disadvantaged.
From the multiple companies he’s founded to the hundreds of schools, entrepreneurs and organizations he has helped advance, Tiger lives by the wisdom of Emerson:
“Everyone is my superior is some way; in that I learn from him.”
His presentations remind even the most gifted individuals that everyone knows something we don’t, and the strengths, abilities and roles of each person we work with are equally important to our own. Though some roles appear higher in the credits, creating a major motion picture takes the entire cast and crew.
In Tiger’s real-life movie model, every role is essential and no person is any less valuable.
