Ed Molitor
Throughout his professional career the words coaching and leadership have been synonymous with the positions Ed has held.

His leadership skills, traits and behaviors are the reasons he has realized such great success as a college basketball coach, Chicago mortgage broker, motivational speaker who talked about the invaluable life lessons provided in competitive athletics and as VP of Operations for a successful recruiting firm.


The Athletics of Business mindset which Ed embraces is a direct result of his experiences as both an athlete and a coach. Those experiences helped shape his core values-work ethic, positivity, enthusiasm, passion for life, loyalty and commitment to relentlessly pursuing excellence.

Ed is blessed with an amazingly supportive wife, Nancy, and two incredibly entertaining little ones, Maddie and E.J.

Hi, I’m Ed Molitor.

I specialize in empowering ambitious individuals & teams to think, act, & execute at an elite level.

What led me to launch The Molitor Group?

I’ve spent the last 26 years developing my leadership skills and helping people to get into their greatness while coaching college basketball at the highest level, succeeding in one of the most competitive mortgage markets in the country (Chicago), and serving as VP of Operations in an industry-leading recruiting firm where they specialized in consulting and placing former, exiting, and retired military in jobs throughout the country.

I’ve worked with some of the best and brightest minds in three incredibly competitive industries, where every day you are expected to perform at the highest level.

During this remarkable journey, I developed a unique skill set to deliver leaders across the country a purposeful, authentic, positive, energetic, refreshing experience to unlock their true potential.

After working with countless folks throughout my career, I decided to launch The Molitor Group in 2016 so I could reach and add value to even more ambitious folks achieve their goals every day.

Now, I get to do this every single day.

Whether coaching Leadership Performance clients one-on-one, conducting on-site or off-site Leadership Performance training, or speaking to an audience at a corporate event or celebration, I weave The Athletics of Business mindset into everything I do. This mindset grew from my experiences as an athlete and college coach, both of which helped shape my core values: authenticity, purposeful, passion for life, positivity, work ethic, servant mindset, commitment to relentlessly pursuing greatness, and resiliency.

I help my clients achieve real, tangible results. Working with a coach or consultant is an investment in your future success, and something I take very seriously. I want to work only with folks who are ready to commit to the process and make real, lasting change in their careers and life.

When I’m not working with my clients…

I love spending time with my incredible wife Nancy, and our two little ones Maddie & E.J. They are my “why”, and the reason I wake up every morning and get after it.

My family and I love to spend our time together being active with sports, taking road trips together (or as the kids call it, “going on holiday”), exploring what Chicagoland has to offer, and just sitting around laughing with each other.
