Dr. Noel Osborn
Executive Leadership Coach
Noel Osborn is an executive coach and facilitator/trainer focusing on the development of effective leaders and teams. Noel has worked with many Fortune 500 companies and specializes in the use of “assessment for development” technology with clients. This process employs 360° (multi-rater) instruments to measure the personal impact of leaders and team members, supported by personality inventories which indicate the “why” behind the impact. The process has proven to be highly successful when used in conjunction with leader awareness interventions and team-building behavior development. Noel is also a specialist in the dynamics of high-performance teams and focuses on elements of “social intelligence” and “neuroscience” in understanding the inter-workings of group development.
Dr. Osborn has been associated with the Center for Creative Leadership (CCL®) since 1979 and was responsible for bringing CCL’s Leadership Development Program (LDP)® to Mexico for Latin American leaders. In 1983, Noel formed TEAM International®, formerly a Network Associate of CCL. Since then, over 10,000 executives have taken TEAM International® programs across the American Continents, including some 7,500 Latin Americans.
As an executive coach, Noel works with senior managers and their teams, including C- level executives. Principal clients include Citigroup, where he has been one of the coaches for the Top-100 executive group. Noel has had a long-standing coaching/training relationship with many other organizations, including Colgate- Palmolive, DuPont, Pepsico/Frito-Lay, Unilever, Genzyme, and more recently, Airbus Helicopters, General Electric. and VF Corp.
Over the years, Noel has been active in many successful individual and group coaching interventions. His individual coaching experience principally comes out of assessment feedback with hundreds of participants in the context of their leadership development experiences with TEAM International®. His thrust with groups has been in strengthening collaboration among team members, along with identification and attention to improved connections with other stakeholders, such as employees, customers, and communities served. There is a high correlation between leaders’ effectiveness and their ability to positively impact their team’s performance. Key factors include building trust and minimizing/managing conflicts.
Dr. Osborn holds a B.A., M.A., and Ph.D. in Economics from the University of Colorado- Boulder. His major field was Human Resource economics.
