"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
CEO, 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

"I have had the pleasure of working with Avion on several projects over the years and I value their guidance and support tremendously. They have helped me and my teams develop professionally by providing coaching, facilitating team off-sites, and delivering skills-based training programs. Avion really invests in understanding the specific organizational and business context upfront and then tailors targeted programs that address my specific needs, which has consistently led to real impact. Plus, they have a warm and friendly approach that makes them easy to partner with. Bottom line: they have earned my trust as a go-to resource for people development."

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."
