Drawing upon his deep background in change management, culture change and team effectiveness, Andy’s passion is supporting organizational transformation at both the individual, team and whole system level. Leaders and organizations interested in this work are those that hold a vision of a higher purpose for themselves and their organizations. They believe that business can enable their environment and communities to flourish while achieving best in class financial returns.
In his over 30 years of organizational development experience with ExxonMobile, BFGoodrich, Pfizer and his own consultancy, Andy has enabled leader and team growth in areas such as post-merger/acquisition integration, process improvement, culture change, and executive team effectiveness.
Andy’s experience is that leaders and leadership teams can become “future fit” when they have a deeper understanding of what underlies their actions, behaviors and decision making strategies. To be able to satisfy 21st century stakeholder objectives, Andy partners with clients to explore how to bring their fully integrated selves (head, heart and gut) forward to lead authentically. When a leader embraces this self-awareness, they can see new possibilities in any given situation. They become open to new choices where they can act naturally and with intent.
Andy’s work crosses all functional areas including sales, marketing, manufacturing, operations, research and development, and human resources. Internationally he has worked in Belgium, Germany, Netherlands, France, Italy, UK and Hong Kong.
Focused on ensuring all change and development efforts are aligned with business strategy, organizational systems and leadership capability, Andy is trained in Lean/Six Sigma (yellow belt), Appreciative Inquiry, and the Lominger (Korn-Ferry) Career Architect suite. He is a Level 2 certified user of the Team Diagnostic Survey (Wageman and Hackman), Denison Culture Survey, and MBTI among others. As an executive coach he is certified as a Gestalt Professional Coach and as a Professional Certified Coach by the International Coaching Federation. He holds bachelors and masters degrees from Bowling Green State University in Organizational Communication and Psychology. He is an executive committee member of Conscious Capitalism: North East Ohio.
