Lee Franklin, Senior Partner
I'VE BEEN AN EXECUTIVE COACH SINCE 1995.
... For me, coaching is a deep commitment to the growth and accomplishments of client managers and leaders. The impact of coaching shows up in increased effectiveness with subordinates, with peers and with those to whom they report. Clients become clearer about what they want to accomplish, and they learn to get it with less struggle.
Lee Franklin, Senior Partner
Before becoming a coach, Lee Franklin had four distinct careers - two entrepreneurial and two corporate. During the 70s, he co-founded a public policy consulting firm in Washington, D.C. that still enjoys a national reputation as a most highly regarded firm in its field. Since then Lee was Vice President, Marketing and Sales at Sprint Communications, and more recently was president of a division of AirTouch Communications, which was acquired by Vodafone and is now part of Verizon. During the second half of the 80s, Lee designed, financed, constructed, operated and then sold an independent fiber optic telecom network, through a partnership developed with General Electric Credit Corp.
Lee has been president four times and CEO once, he has served on boards and reported to a board. He's a graduate of Williams College and Harvard Business School.
"Along with the usual gifts of true leaders in business, Lee has an uncanny ability to simplify a complex situation without losing the necessary subtleties. And he is aware of the personal side of business as much as he is knowledgeable about the larger world of markets. If you want to be at the top of your game at the top of your field, call Lee."

Lee is an exceptional coach who helps you to discover your aspirations, see beyond yourself, and enables you to break through your self imposed limitations and achieve goals that you may have thought were never achievable. Lee is respectfully candid but never shy to confront you when you are in denial. I highly recommend Lee to help you improve your organization effectiveness.

Lee and his partners at Quadratic Leadership (quadratic.co) are the quintessential leadership development team. They approach their engagements without any preconceived model or value system, which makes them nearly unique in their field. There are many that will attempt to force you and your organization into the latest overhyped Organizational Development fad. Not Lee or his partners: they will work with you to develop your idea of what success means for you and your team, and then help you achieve it more quickly than you can imagine.
