Today’s business environment puts more focus on leadership than ever before. Many organizations and individuals are in transition and as such, are facing new challenges required to survive and thrive, especially in these challenging times.
Chicago, IL (PRWEB) September 21, 2010
The Athens Group, diversity and inclusion strategic consultants to businesses and individuals worldwide since 1999, has expanded its services and changed its name to Nextions (http://www.nextions.com).
“Nextions reflects our firm’s innovative approach to leadership and inclusion consulting and coaching,” explained President Arin N. Reeves. “A Nextion is the next thing you need to do to get you from where you are to where you want to be. It is the next question you need to ask, the next connection you need to make, the next action you need to take. Whether you are an individual, a team, or an organization, your Nextions propel you to lead.”
To that end, the firm has added a new focus on leadership consulting and executive coaching. “Today’s business environment puts more focus on leadership than ever before. Many organizations and individuals are in transition and as such, are facing new challenges required to survive and thrive, especially in these challenging times,” said Reeves, a Leadership Greater Chicago Fellow (2003) and Anti-Defamation League Rising Star (2010).
Nextions’ clients include Fortune 500 companies in many industries, law firms, universities, and membership organizations, plus C-suite executives, middle managers and other professionals. Nextions serves its clients through its consulting and executive coaching practices as well as through the programs and workshops offered at its Leadership Institute.
“From assessments to strategic planning and implementation to training, our consulting services provide organizations with the tools they need to maximize their leadership capabilities and their inclusion strategies,” said Reeves. “The Leadership Institute and the executive coaches focus on teaching and building the necessary skill sets that leaders need to lead effectively in today’s world.
“Our goal is to help our clients develop more confidence in their decision-making skills, give them the courage and vision to pursue personal and professional dreams, and the strength to successfully lead themselves and others in any situation. We want to help them bridge the gap between where they are and where they want to be.”
Reeves, who has worked in leadership development and inclusion for nearly 15 years, holds a law degree from the University of Southern California and a doctorate in Sociology from Northwestern University. In demand as a writer and speaker, she has taught classes in law and society at Northwestern, appeared on National Public Radio, and authored a “Diversity in Practice” column for Chicago Lawyer magazine. She also served on the American Bar Association Commission on Women, where she co-chaired the Women of Color Research Initiative.
