RANDY KOLIBABA BIOGRAPHY

A critically acclaimed speaker and best-selling author, Randy Kolibaba accurately and seamlessly weaves the information he’s trying to convey into gripping true stories from his own experience. Many have referred to his presentations as informative and both inspirational and truly life-altering.

Randy Kolibaba is a results-driven former high-ranking and highly decorated Commissioned Officer within Canada’s national police force, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP).  As a senior commander of the RCMP tasked with responding to large-scale man-made or natural disasters, or leading large multi-discipline policing units including one of the RCMP’s Emergency Response Teams (Special Weapons and Tactics team), Randy has been formally recognized twice, once by the Government of Canada and secondly by Her Majesty the Queen of England for distinguished service to Canada.

Randy Kolibaba provided policing services to First Nations people for almost two decades in Saskatchewan and British Columbia. While in Saskatchewan, after researching and then developing the first provincially approved Alternative Justice Program for the First Nations people of Saskatchewan, he was nationally recognized for outstanding policing and service delivery to the First Nations peoples.

Randy Kolibaba has a long and proven record of being a master of leadership when dealing with organizations in crisis. Randy was selected to oversee Canada’s largest ever United Nations civilian policing mission in war-torn Kosovo, Yugoslavia (UNMIK).  Regardless of the harsh and often extremely dangerous working and living conditions in Kosovo, not only was he responsible for all of the Canadian policing interests in Eastern Europe but he was also asked by the United Nations to research and oversee the subsequent creation of the United Nations International Border Police Service. His combined area of responsibility totalled a staff of 307 Canadian and International police personnel.

Randy Kolibaba has been internationally recognized for his leadership, diplomacy, project management, and employee engagement and development. He also has proven success in efficiency, growth, and profitability in diversified areas of service delivery, not only within the umbrella of Public Safety but also including senior management within the Health Care Industry and the “Not-for-profit” sector.

In a time when the organizational culture within the RCMP frowned upon members with stress-related illnesses, Randy Kolibaba was diagnosed with Chronic Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) after returning from his United Nations mission in war-torn Kosovo, Yugoslavia. After having witnessed firsthand the atrocities of genocide. As a senior officer in command of a large municipal policing detachment servicing over 60,000 people, Randy successfully and proactively dealt with his PTSD.

He has now spoken to audiences in person and on radio and TV talk shows in Canada and the United States. He has been asked to write guest articles on PTSD for Global National News and several other personal wellness magazines. Randy’s first book “The Lies Behind the Truth”, which openly discussed his diagnosis of PTSD is now featured in the official libraries of a number of healthcare providers within the Okanagan region of British Columbia as resource material for their patients suffering from PTSD.

In February 2015, Randy Kolibaba was diagnosed with a life-threatening auto-immune disease and given only days to live by four different doctors. After having a near death experience while laying in a trauma room of the intensive care unit at the Kelowna General Hospital, not only did he survive his illness but he has gone on to write about his journey of self-exploration in his second book. The book “Is this the life you Imagined: What if you were wrong?” is a best-selling book in the Self-Help genre in the area of perseverance and motivation.

Randy Kolibaba’s areas of expertise are in team leadership, employee engagement and development, personal wellness and mindful living, PTSD, project management, First Nations policing, change management, and performance improvement.
