Resources for Leading

Resources for Leading helps leaders survive and thrive in this  fast paced and competitive business environment.  Our Mission is helping leaders achieve their highest potential, and helping teams and organizations achieve their vision.  Our primary work is Executive Coaching, Executive Search, Team, Leadership and Organizational Development, and Human Resources Consulting.



Our CEO, Tony Hawk, an ICF Professional Certified Coach, has years of relevant experience, including 10 years as a supplier/service provider to Wal-Mart.  He has also been an executive with several companies in their start up phases, including the formative stages of the Soderquist Leadership Center, where he helped Don Soderquist (retired COO of Wal-Mart) develop leadership, team and organizational development services that would mirror the leadership culture and values he helped instill in the company he served for over 20 years.

In addition to helping individual leaders excel, Resources for Leading helps them find, develop and retain talent, build and lead high performance teams, create and execute strategy and develop highly engaging organizational cultures.  “We take a results driven approach with a commitment to deliver on your objectives.”
