Our Story

Founded by professional development consultants Paul Litten and Greg Hiebert, leadershipForward is a premier leadership performance organization serving Fortune 500 corporations and small businesses throughout the country. Our customized techniques help organizations in diverse industries come through the growing pains of change and reap the benefits of a culture where leaders connect, communicate and inspire.

Using best practices, the latest research, and a wealth of real world experience creating organizational success stories, leadershipForward partners with clients to form new structures of accountability, support, encouragement and alignment. Our work focuses on achieving and sustaining these enhanced capabilities in company cultures driven by capable, credible, confident and influential leaders.

Now as in the beginning, our greatest satisfaction is seeing organizations thrive under effective leadership long after we’re gone from the scene.


“The value leadershipForward brings to the table is not typical of consultants nor leadership coaches. They believe in what they are saying and are seen as a legitimate resource that executives can connect with and learn from.”
