Dan Squires, Ph.D.
Coaching and Consulting Experience
Dan has over 15 years’ experience working with business leaders. He has worked with diverse organizations operating in demanding, dynamic environments, spanning private, public, academic, and government agencies, including in-depth development of several prominent leaders of publicly traded companies. He focuses most of his time on working with business leaders and teams to accelerate their leadership development and effectiveness.
Effective leadership doesn’t happen by accident. While select leadership qualities come more naturally to some, great leaders are made through a combination of challenging work and life experiences, grit, and a desire to achieve big things—both from within and beyond themselves.
Dan specializes in developing leaders and leadership teams through a rigorous assessment and development process that challenges even seasoned leaders and teams to achieve more. He appreciates that the costs of leadership failure can be considerable; and conversely, successful leadership can inspire transformational changes with rippling effects extending well beyond organizations and their employees.
