About Us


Our goal is to help good managers become great leaders.

Turknett Leadership Group specializes in the assessment and development of executive leadership and organization effectiveness. Founded in 1987, the firm is a leader in using sophisticated proprietary assessment tools and long-term, personalized coaching to develop successful leaders and organizations. Our professional staff brings both depth and breadth to our clients by combining expertise in the behavioral sciences with practical business and executive management experience. The key to successful interventions is accurate individual and organizational diagnosis. Our proprietary assessment tools and the experience and expertise of our consultants ensure accurate diagnosis and the design of effective interventions.

Expertise in Business & Psychology

We offer a staff of expert facilitators with varied backgrounds in (1) industrial and organizational psychology, (2) organization development consulting, (3) senior executive and line management and (4) educators. We understand the psychological, organizational, and business dynamics influencing a team; we understand both the why and how of team dynamics. While general management consultants generally do not understand individual and organizational dynamics, and psychologists generally do not understand business dynamics, we understand and integrate all of these in our work with clients.


Turknett has built a reputation on results and client satisfaction. Over 2,000 executives have completed the Turknett individual Executive Development Program. Our clients represent companies of all sizes and industries, and include such companies as AGL Resources, American Cancer Society, BellSouth, Bennett International Group, Freebairn & Co., Georgia-Pacific Corp., Hewlett-Packard and Mercer Human Resources Consulting. At Turknett, we are passionately committed to the success of our client organizations. Our goal is to help every employee improve in the ability to lead others, themselves, and the organization more effectively.
