Avion Consulting specializes in leadership, team, and organizational development


Avion Consulting partners with senior leaders and their organizations to unleash potential in people. We contribute to our clients' success by providing tailored solutions that positively impact people and drive business results. Our leadership development professionals bring unique experiences and skills to our work with clients, but one thing we all have in common is a deep commitment to helping leaders and organizations achieve their full potential.


Avion consultants have spent decades serving premier clients across the globe. We believe our experience, our expertise, and our commitment to integrity and excellence make the difference for our clients. Be sure to ask any of us where the name Avion Consulting came from; we will be more than happy to tell you the story.



At Avion Consulting, we believe that leadership effectiveness is the biggest driver of organizational success, and we offer a suite of services designed to ensure that our clients’ leaders are as effective as possible. These services include leadership assessments, one-on-one leadership coaching, and various kinds of learning and development experiences.



To be a leader is to lead people, often in a team setting. Leading a team inevitably brings challenges, and Avion Consulting provides a range of solutions in order to ensure that teams develop effectively and perform at the highest possible levels. Team-level solutions include team assessments, team development workshops, and action-planning facilitation.


Organizational Development

Sometimes, management issues must be addressed at the organizational level. Avion Consulting helps clients identify challenges requiring organization-wide solutions, and we then partner with clients to design, develop, and implement such solutions. Examples include employee engagement surveys, strategic planning initiatives, and other custom OD services.




Avion is proud to partner with clients that are committed to developing their leaders, their teams, and their entire organizations. We typically serve clients over the long term, through a variety of engagements, as a way of maximizing the value we deliver and ensuring significant business impact. Below you will find just a few of the clients that put their trust in us as partners:

They are a great partner on assessments, executive coaching, development consulting, program development and delivery. One of the most successful and highly rated leadership development programs we have ever provided here at JM Family was designed in partnership with and delivered primarily by the Avion team.

Kim Fields
VP, Learning & Organizational Development
JM Family Enterprises, Inc.

"Teamwork underpins a company’s success and Avion Consulting's sessions on developing stronger teams has made a significant impact for our company. Avion's research-based information, fresh strategies and easy-to-implement tactics prompted us to engage them for a broader training program not only for our leaders to grow, but also our key distribution partners. This training helped the participants grow personally and professionally and reinforced the power of teamwork!"

Tom Burns
Allianz Life Financial Services

"I have had the pleasure of working with the Avion Consulting team for over a decade of my career. They have been instrumental in enabling me to evolve my own leadership style as well as the leadership skills of the executive teams I’ve led over this period of time. I rely on the Avion team because I know they are dependable, thought provoking and practical in their recommendations. Put simply, the Avion team ‘gets it’ when it comes to helping leaders, teams and organizations to realize their full potential."

Jim Greenwood
Vision Source

"I appreciate Avion’s professional service to my previous employer, a large global pharmaceutical company. Avion was flexible and able to effectively customize to meet our needs. They created a fully customized 360-degree survey and, based on our results, provided tailored leadership development workshops and individual coaching sessions. I was impressed with the Avion team’s responsiveness and their willingness to thoughtfully push back when they saw problems with our proposed plan. Geographically, we were not close but I never felt that way due to their proactive communication. They are the best “business partner” I have worked with in my career."

Katsuyoshi Sugita
Head of HR
Microsoft Japan

"Avion Consulting is a partner of choice when we are seeking to deliver engaging and insightful leadership development programs. They are always willing to custom design solutions to best meet our needs. Their creative, interactive sessions allow us to enjoy learning, while imbedding key concepts. In the crowded world of consulting groups, this firm stands out!"

Sherri Du Mond
President & CEO
Questar Capital and Questar Asset Management

"I have had the privilege of working with the Avion Consulting team for 15 years.  Their leadership guidance, coaching and development programs for executive and senior leadership teams has always been extremely relevant and easily customized to the business and individual’s needs.  Additionally, Avion’s expertise and manner with which they approach an engagement is a true partnership, not just a consulting assignment.  I cannot recommend Avion Consulting highly enough…they have always delivered results on any project or assignment for which I have engaged them."

Tammy Steele
Chief People Officer

"Avion has been a crucial partner in the transformation of my leadership team. Their assessment process and executive coaching have been high impact for both me and my team. They pushed us to engage differently than we had in the past and gave us tools and a process that made a real difference. With them as a partner, we will continue to get the business results we want now, while also preparing our leaders for the future."
