Having a confidant, a consigliere you trust and can talk with about the grand sweep of your vision...or, the problems you’re having with a difficult employee in a series of ongoing conversations that occur regularly is the ‘secret weapon’ of many CEO’s and C-Suite leaders. Ben Griffin has extensive, deep experience as a line executive, entrepreneur, CEO, and practicing professional.. Ben brings that depth and breadth to every Executive Coaching engagement. He works with CEO’s and executives on focused assignments of a year or less and has relationships that have spanned 15 or more years where he makes a valued continuing contribution to the leader's success and growth.

We’re working to bring together small groups of 6 - 10 leaders - all from different businesses and from different parts of North America - to participate in ‘topic-focused’ workshops… Ben Griffin and Sara King have been planning this all new format in order to provide additional support for the “How To Create Your Next Great Employee” Digital Leadership Lab.
