Lei Wang is an executive coach, speaker, and mountain climber. As the first Asian woman to complete the Explorers Grand Slam, Lei has been a sought-after international motivational speaker since 2010. She has inspired people around the world to dream big and achieve a fulfilling life that is truly exciting. As a coach, Lei helps business leaders accelerate their career to exciting new heights with ease and grace, lead their organizations to make bigger impacts, and connect deeper with the communities they serve.
In 2004, Lei, who grew up as a Beijing city girl with no athletic training, set out to climb Mt. Everest. She was on a promising career track in finance with an MBA from Wharton. But she was excited about proving that an ordinary person could climb Everest. That excitement empowered her discovery, and she found that excitement is the driving force that motivates and empowers every one of us — and it’s the secret to innovation, peak performance, and extraordinary achievement. Today, as a coach, speaker, author, and adventurer, she travels the world to ascend new summits and empower individuals and organizations to dream big, take a leap of faith, and tap into the power of excitement to realize their potential and move mountains.
