About

“Leadership is hard work. To have followers, people must want to follow you.” I have dedicated my career to understanding and improving organizational cultures through the creation and deployment of innovative assessment, leadership, and team development programs. My passion for improving businesses through harnessing the power of their people has given me the great opportunity to work with many progressive, global Fortune 1000 organizations. Serving in corporate roles for over 25 years, my insights and practical strategies for creating long term behavior and culture change grew from my experience as a Chief Human Resources Officer driving business transformation and implementing best practices with two Fortune 500 companies and a mid-size financial services organization. Prior to Dion Leadership, I had the great fortune to apply my corporate experience at a multitude of companies through being the co-owner of a global leadership and organizational development consulting firm. Learning from a decade of experience, I was able to bring many of our staff, consultants, and clients to form Dion Leadership with the expressed promise to always have… People-first mindsets Reliable results Best-in-class solutions and resources Long-term partnerships Attentive service We have built an amazing team of over 50 expert coaches and consultants who are similarly passionate and work tirelessly to bring these programs to life. Today, I spend much of my time researching best practices to support leadership development needs in this new decade and work with C-level executives to craft customized, long-term, and innovative leadership and culture development programs.
