More About Tom Hoban

Tom Hoban is a veteran of the Excellent Cultures process, having deployed it in his commercial real estate company with great success.

After a short career in banking and sales, Tom and his brother, Shawn Hoban, co- founded the first of their now $6 billion AUM property management enterprise with only a plunger, a pick-up truck, $1,200 and a remarkable commitment to each other. Three decades later, the Coast Group is a diversified collection of companies also involved in investment, construction and services. The Coast Group employs over 750 people throughout the Pacific Northwest.

Tom has headed revenue operations for their companies for years, while Shawn focused on operations and finance. The consummate “inside-guy/outside-guy” combo, they’ve been recognized for excellence earning them the Washington State Family Business of the Year Award, Top 40 under 40 Executives (Shawn), Washington Best Places to Work and University of Notre Dame Co-Alumni of the Year. Their companies are regularly recognized as some of the most diverse in the industry, which Tom attributes in large part to the work they did with Excellent Cultures.

Tom sees community engagement as a duty for any business leader. A published columnist and former adjunct professor of entrepreneurship, he currently serves on a number of boards, including Santa Clara University Real Estate Advisory Board, University of Portland Board of Trustees, Washington State University (Everett), Washington State Affordable Housing Advisory Board and several others focused on education and youth. Along the way, they bought a minor league baseball team, formed an organization that led to opening a second airport in the Puget Sound and helped establish a new Catholic high school in their hometown 30 miles North of Seattle. Tom is also a columnist and frequently gives talks to industry groups and college students.

While the brothers had a strong corporate culture, growth made maintaining it difficult. It wasn’t until engaging Excellent Cultures that they found the way to codify their core values in a way that supported scale, resulting in improved margins and higher employee retention.

Tom earned a BA in Finance from The University of Notre Dame in 1984. He is married, father of three adult children and in his spare time a competitive basketball player.

This workshop will specifically address:

How to build a culture of Service-Over-Self Relentless Commitment to Excellence in your life, leadership and team.

What culture is and isn’t:

  • Why and how culture really does “eat strategy for breakfast”

How your individual personal, leadership and team culture can cause below the surface:

  • Forced diversity that destroys unity instead of celebrated diversity that creates unity
  • Resistance to change and anti-innovation
  • Team members kissing up to your face and then doing the opposite behind your back

  • Passive reactivity instead of proactive accountability and innovation
  • Conflict avoidance, fear & the resulting inferior performance

Participating leaders will:

  • Learn the 3 warning signs of an unintentional sabotage culture and how to avoid them

    • The concept of real accountability and how it creates unity that celebrates diversity
