The Team

Steve Dion, Founder & CEO  

Steve has dedicated his career to understanding and improving organizational cultures through the creation and deployment of innovative assessment, leadership, and team development programs. His passion for improving businesses through harnessing the power of their people has led him to work with many progressive, global Fortune 1000 organizations.

Serving in corporate roles for over 25 years, Steve has leveraged this real-world experience as a global business leader to provide leadership and organizational development consulting for over a decade. He has seen firsthand the positive impact a people-centered culture can make on organizations. His professional focus is crafting and executing talent strategies as part of an organization’s growth and change agenda.

Steve’s insights and practical strategies for creating long term behavior and culture change grew from his 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.

“Leadership is hard work. To have followers, people must want to follow you.”

Steve spends much of his time working with C-level executives to craft customized, long-term, and broad-based leadership and culture development programs. He has spent a decade building an amazing team of over 60 expert coaches and consultants who are similarly passionate and work tirelessly to bring these programs to life.

While Steve enjoys working with all types of progressive organizations, he is particularly skilled in working in the manufacturing, healthcare, financial services, retail, and non-profit industries.
