Lee Ann Del Carpio is an expert in leadership development, an executive coach and a sought-after facilitator of strategic cultural change. For more than twenty years, Lee Ann has worked with global executives and organizations across many industries to clarify strategic focus, engage people across boundaries, and build the versatile, integrated leadership capacities necessary to deliver results in the midst of a volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous business environment.
By serving at the nexus of strategy, change and leadership over the course of her career, Lee Ann has developed deep, practical experience in leadership development, organizational change, and what it takes to build cultures of agility and courage. Her current areas of focus include the “exponential leadership” mindsets and skillsets needed to respond to ongoing market disruption and exponential change in an increasingly distributed, mobile, intelligent and participatory world.
Lee Ann serves as President of Inner Power International, and has worked with clients across a variety of industries, including: Amway, Avon Products, Inc., Chevron, FCA Group (formerly Chrysler Group), Exxon Mobil, FMC, General Electric (GE International, GE Plastics, GE Capital), The Hershey Company, Kaiser Permanente, Kamehameha Schools, The Mayo Clinic, Merck Group, Northrop Grumman, Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics (WWL), and Wilh. Wilhelmsen. She has lived on three continents, and coached or trained leaders from over 50 countries worldwide.
Throughout her career, Lee Ann has held a variety of positions in global organizational effectiveness, including Executive Director of Organizational Effectiveness at Kaiser Permanente, Director of Leadership Development at Sapient Corporation, and Senior Manager supporting worldwide global leadership development at Avon Products, Inc.
Lee Ann’s coaching approach is often described by her clients as dynamic and engaging, bringing a combination of strategic “big picture” thinking, deep personal effectiveness skills, and practical “results” orientation to the table. She believe leaders and organizations have an amazing capacity within, but often fail at their attempts to change to achieve greatness and foster the collective capacity to create new results. Why? What propelled you or your organization to succeed thus far may not get you to the next level of excellence. In fact, in today’s complex and uncertain marketplace, there are usually beliefs that must released, behaviors that must change, and strategies to simplify if you are to truly achieve the next level of mastery and greatness. In other words, greatness often comes through subtraction, not addition.
Lee Ann holds a Master’s degree in Intercultural Management from the School for International Training in Vermont, and a Bachelor’s of Science degree in International Studies and Political Science from Miami University in Ohio. She also is a graduate of Coach University, a Master Trainer of InsideOut Coaching, and has been certified in several coaching models and many leadership assessments including the Leadership Versatility Index (LVI), the Cultural Orientations Indicator (COI), the Global Mindset Inventory (GMI) and the Hogan Assessment Suite. She speaks English, as well as some French and Japanese.
Lee Ann lives in Scottsdale, Arizona where she also serves as an Academic Director and Global Leadership Faculty for the Thunderbird School of Global Management at ASU.
