Dr. Sandra Davis

Dr. SANDRA DAVIS, SIOP Fellow, is Chief Executive Officer of MDA Leadership Consulting in Minneapolis, a firm she co-founded in 1981.  She is a nationally regarded thought leader and results-oriented practitioner of leadership development who knows how to influence powerful leaders.  Her specific expertise and interests are in CEO selection, senior leader succession planning, leadership development, senior leader assessment, and executive coaching.  She has a special kinship with risk-taking leaders, based on her own entrepreneurial success.
