Our Story

Founded in the 1980s as an executive search firm, DDJ Myers has generated innovative models and expanded our expertise to support a robust range of leadership development offerings.

As our firm’s 30th anniversary approaches, we look back with pride on how our team has grown and evolved to serve our clients’ changing needs and expectations for a reliable and responsive partner in advancing leadership. And we look forward to continuing to help leaders and their organizations thrive.

Over three decades, we have been active participants in the revolution that has transformed how business- es produce and deliver their products and services and how organizations are structured. Throughout economic upheavals, technological breakthroughs, and major demographic shifts, one constant in business success has been the need for strong leadership. Toward that end, DDJ Myers has been on the fore- front with our Advancing Leadership Institute for executive development; with our Emerging Leaders Program to help organizations support the progression of their mid-level talent; and with our Transformative Change Model for the boardroom. Those programs have earned high praise from the organizations that have implemented them and have been honored with awards from leading industry associations.

In creating these solutions, we have applied our professional expertise and the lessons learned in working with hundreds of individuals, executive teams, boards, and organizations through the years. Our programs are based on proven best practices adapted for the unique circumstances of each organization and the individual goals and aspirations of each participant. There is no one-size-fits-all leadership toolbox.

What are your goals and dreams? Where do you want to take your business? How can we help your organization meet today’s challenges and quickly adapt to realize tomorrow’s opportunities? Our clients’ answers to these questions give us purpose and guide our work. We look forward to continuing this work with your organization by helping you to optimize your greatest competitive advantage—your people.
