Charged leadership for a brighter future.

Organizational leadership consulting services that make work better – and make better work.

You know that feeling you get in your gut when you just know something is right? Or how you get the shivers when a profound truth is spoken? How about that natural high you experience when you are in the flow and connected with the highest and greatest good for all? At ION we believe that it is in those moments when we are most alive – fully charged and connected – simultaneously receptive and generative. We call it Charged Leadership, and we bring that energy into everything we do.

Leadership domains in which we can help you grow

Leading Self

Self-leadership is the critical building block for leading others, teams, organizations, partnerships and even societies.

Leading Others

Leadership happens in the social realm – meaning, between people. That’s why we believe that great leaders lead with values, not titles.

Leading Organizations

Leading organizations requires that you foster adaptation, collaboration, and compliance, while managing risk and ethics.

Leading Partnerships

We help organizations, policy makers, and institutions establish shared values that link purpose and success.
