Acumentri Leadership is entirely
focused on helping successful technical executives amplify their influence and impact.
Acumentri supports executives and aspiring senior leaders of technical functions who want to strengthen their organizational influence and increase the impact of their leadership style.
Technical leaders can struggle to shed the inaccurate image of being the nay-sayer, bogged down by details (in the weeds), or not fully on board with the grand vision. Acumentri provides insight and co-creates successful strategies with our clients to take on greater responsibility and succeed in bigger roles.
The most impactful leaders are authentic, communicative, able to build teams and develop other leaders.
The executive leadership framework includes effective capabilities such as: Establishing Leadership Presence; Prioritization & Time Management; Team Effectiveness & Talent Development; Leadership Communication (internal & external); Executive Team & Stakeholder Alignment.
We enjoy working with technical experts, problem solvers, and "overly-analytical" thinkers. Thoughtful individuals make excellent leaders - it's all about creating the right processes to support them. Our experience is that problem-solvers have an internal drive to improve once they understand how to modify their behavior.

Adept. Deliberate. Curious. Fallible.
