about Ben | rave
"There's nothing half so real as the things
you've done ... inexorably, unalterably done."
People tell me that that what they valued most about our work is that they:
- Overcame what held them back.
- Developed clear options, strategies and action plans.
- Brought out the best in themselves and the people they love.
- Changed their lives for the better.
- Achieved more than they thought possible.
I have a variety of professional and personal experiences that mark me as a unique expert.
Dr. Leichtling is the author of:

- Over 200 of my articles have appeared in business, trade and psychotherapy publications across the country.
- My expertise has been featured in publications such as Entrepreneur, USA Weekend and Harvard Management Update.
- Knowledge TV highlighted me on a leadership segment of “You, Inc.”
- I’m a columnist for Denver Business Journal.
I learned most of what I know and developed my skills in the heat of the moment—through trial and course-correction when the chips were down. Of course I learned from books and courses. But you get the most by modeling great people and by putting your body into real life. You learn a lot about how to live a glorious life when you have three girls and three boys in a stepfamily and live in a home with one bathroom—and no lock. We did!

Take charge of your future by taking charge of your mood, energy, attitudes and action.
In 1988, I had two heart attacks within six months.
- Rather than agreeing to recommended quadruple bypass surgery, I developed my own “Handbook For Creating Your Heart’s Desire.”
- Within a year of that unconventional choice, I was free of physical damage and have been fine since then.
My most powerful testimonial!
- With my wife of 35 years, we raised six children in a stepfamily.
- Although the children are now grown and independent, they still speak to us.
- Three of the children and their families live within walking distance.
