Ron Chapman believes there are no self-made men or women. “All I have and all I am came from people and circumstances for which I cannot claim credit. While I don't define myself much anymore as the product of any specific hardship, I have been drawn in ways I could not resist. Had I not been drawn, I could never have succeeded in the face of some daunting life challenges.” One of those key challenges was the battle with addiction, a battle that Ron has waged continuously for three decades of sobriety. During this time he has dedicated himself to helping others through their own Progressive Recovery.
Ron has been called motivational and inspirational as well as a being labeled a master translator. These experiences lay a foundation for a wide range of expertise and successes for Ron including three enterprises that focus on consultation, facilitation, speaking, workshops, coaching and other activities to develop people and organizations. While Ron is a native Oklahoman and long-time resident of New Mexico, he currently lives in Atlanta, Georgia. Beyond sobriety, he considers his greatest success to be the relationship that he has with his two daughters; it is a direct result of the type of emotional work necessary in a Progressive Recovery.
