The Chicken Coop CEO
Lessons in Life and Leadership
by Roy Seidler

Chicken Coop CEO offers a unique blend of autobiography and an instructor’s manual for succeeding as a leader. Readers will trace the life of Roy Seidler and learn how he was able to overcome extreme poverty and a broken home in his youth to being selected for important formal leadership positions later in life. Because Seidler steadfastly believes that we can all “make our own little corner of the world a better place from having traveled through it,” he shares the lessons he learned along his personal and professional journeys and employs those lessons to develop a manual that will prove invaluable to those wishing to improve the institutions and organizations they lead in their own neck of the woods. The book is a living manifestation of Seidler’s lifelong mantra of “Learn-Grow-Share.” Humble, humorous, practical, and extremely wise, Chicken Coop CEO will, alternately, have readers sharing its stories and taking copious notes.

Roy Seidler has always been interested in the study of what constitutes effective leadership. From assuming his first position as a classroom teacher, Seidler moved through the ranks of educational leadership as a principal and then a CEO. In 2000, he served as the President of the Manitoba Association of School Superintendents and in 2003 was awarded the Xerox National Leadership Award in recognition of exemplary leadership in school administration in Canada. He was awarded a life membership to the Manitoba Association of School Superintendents in 2008 and to the Manitoba Association of School Business Officials in 2016. Now retired from public education, Seidler continues to volunteer for leadership positions in not-for-profit organizations. He recently was the 2016 co-chair of the Manitoba Power Smart Summer Games and took a leadership role in the development of minor baseball in Southeastern Manitoba. In 2005, he was elected to the Manitoba Baseball Hall of Fame. An avid reader and golfer, Seidler lives in the city of his birth, Giroux, Manitoba, with his partner, Odette Labossiere. Together they own ROAR Leadership Consultants.
