Edward H. Hammett is President of Transforming Solutions, and is certified by International Coach Federation as a master certified coach (MCC). He is also a prolific author and a popular workshop and plenary session speaker for profit and non-profit organizations, churches and more than 12 different denominations. His coaching and consulting also impacts entrepreneurs in the business world.

Hammett's seven books, including Spiritual Leadership in a Secular Age: Building Bridges Instead of Barriers, Reaching People Under 30 While Keeping People Over 60, and Making Shifts without Making Waves: A Coach Approach to Soulful Leadership, speak to cultural shifts and their impact on organizations, churches, and denominations.

"What I appreciated most about this book [Reaching People...] is how Eddie Hammett gives voice to the tension and issues that frequently divide congregations today and embroils them in conflict. There are some in the church who more or less recommend choosing either those under 40 or those over 60 to minister to because the differences are too great to overcome, but Eddie advocates instead developing win-win strategies for both groups."
