Leigh Wintz, Emeritus

  • Reality Checker
  • Meetings Expert
  • Protocol Practitioner
  • Executive Cowgirl
  • Governance Guru

Leigh forged a wide path of experiential leadership – both as a former CEO of Soroptimist International of the Americas and as a leader of several health care organizations (including the multi-faceted job as an assistant administrator of a 600-bed hospital).

She focused on real-world, real-time advisory practices. Leigh’s clients appreciated her practical, honest and straight-forward recommendations and guidance. A frequent speaker and workshop facilitator, Leigh presented on topics as diverse as global business etiquette and protocol, and cross-cultural relationship development and understanding.

From solution-oriented facilitation to training, consultation for strategic direction, revenue creation, alliance building and chapter relations, Leigh offered a cohesive and creative approach to the management and development of associations, academic institutions, state governments and medical organizations.

Perspectives from Leigh:

“Too often, time is lost at board meetings when directors spend their time discussing topics that could be better handled through email or a consent agenda.”

“What’s the difference between productive board/CEO partnership and dysfunctional ones? Everything! You can feel it in the room and see it on agendas and in minutes.”
