Team Development

We don't have to be smarter than the rest. We have to be more disciplined. –Warren Buffet


A high-performing team is an asset of value beyond measure. Start-up investors, for example, often value the quality of the team and the relationships between and among founding members more than the start-up idea itself.

From team assessments to practical operational models to leadership coaching, look to Russ Powell Consulting as a strategic partner in the development of your teams.

Russ Powell is a certified facilitator of Middle Path team development programs.

Leader Development

The need for good leaders is more urgent than ever. To survive in today’s complex, volatile, uncertain, and ambiguous business environment, you need strong leaders who can think and function multi-dimensionally.


Leaders today must be able to consider and juggle not only the technical processes and outputs of their teams, but also the interactions between and among team members, and their own personal energy, attitudes, and beliefs.

Let us help you assess and develop your current and future leaders.

Russ Powell is a certified facilitator of Leadership and the Middle Path. Contact us for more information.


The bravest are surely those who have the clearest vision of what is before them—glory and danger alike—and yet, notwithstanding, they go out to meet it. –Thucydides, early Greek historian


Sometimes we all need a little help along the waysome dedicated, personal, professional attention to assist us in crossing a threshold, working through a transition, changing a habit, or developing a new skill.


Lean on Russ Powell Consulting and our virtual coaching services to help you or your best performers cross that next threshold.

Training for Leaders of Virtual Meetings

The novel coronavirus COVID-19 has forced many of us into work-from-home, virtual business environments.


Running effective meetings and presentations were challenging before COVID-19. Now it's even more so.

The staff at Russ Powell Consulting has helped organizations run more effective meetings, training programs and "offsites" in virtual environments for decades.

Let us help you and your leaders learn to run better virtual meetings. Contact us today.
