ALLIANCES

Leader’s Insight wants to ensure the best resources for the opportunities that come our way, as well as a timely response to client needs. Having interviewed hundreds of coaches and consultants, primarily on the East Coast, USA, Dr. Steinwedel has numerous contacts in the business.

Leader’s Insight regularly draws on a small alliance of individuals with specialty skills and leadership strengths –individuals who align with our core values of integrity, fairness, accountability, excellence, respect and innovation.

The men and women who align with Leader’s Insight are experienced and excel as organizational development consultants, HR consultants, leadership and executive coaches, as well as business coaches (focused largely on the business, including finance and operations, as opposed to relationship, network, and personal development).

Our alliances are committed to their ongoing personal and professional development. They have a balance of both internal and external consulting experience, ensuring they understand the context of organizational life, and the stresses and challenges that come with such roles.
