Hello, I'm Dorian Baroni, welcome to my website.

I'm an Executive CoachLeadership Programs and Retreats Faculty, and Organizational Advisor. My business experience has spanned a variety of industries - investment banking, global energy, consumer goods and art retail - and a number of countries - UK, US, Venezuela, Italy, Belgium.

One of my core beliefs is that a leader's individual journey towards wholeness is critical to addressing today's global challenges. And as a business woman, I am also particularly passionate about the role and power of feminine leadership to support the evolution of global mindsets, social systems and models of economic impact.

I work with both individuals and organizational teams. I help individuals develop a higher quality of self-awareness, so as to enable courses of action in which the truth of one's individual calling and the power of one's true gifts can more clearly 'show up'. When working with organizations, I look for the patterns in the organizational culture, systems or structures - whether hidden conflicts or self-defeating strategies - which are getting in the way of the creative potential of collective endeavors. Bringing to light such patterns allows for a different level of conversations in which the truth about such 'stuckness' can be seen, voiced and ultimately transformed.

I work as a Senior Associate, mainly in the US and Europe, with a number of consultancies with global organizational clients:  Morris Graham in London (focused on Systemic Change and Executive Coaching), Harthill in the UK (focused on Leadership Development Programs) and with Pluribus-Europe in Bruxelles (focused on Inclusion).

I work as an independent Executive Coach with a range of coaching clients: senior executives in corporations, millennials in their first professional experiences,  middle managers who are feeling the strain of competing demands from various levels of the hierarchy, entrepreneurs who are seeking to maintain or enhance their organization's unique cultures, and not-for-profit leaders who are striving for resilience while addressing the seemingly intractable challenges of their organizations' causes. I also laser coach Executive MBAs at the Yale School of Management. 

I am also deeply committed to women's leadership development. I mentor women MBAs at my alma mater, the Anderson School. I host women's leadership retreats. I am a committed supporter of the Eileen Fisher Learning Institute's summer programs for young women. I invite men and women to consider the impact of unconscious gender bias in our day to day working environments and cultures. And between 2007 and 2015, I took a leadership role in the global expansion of the CIYO, a leadership retreat program for women. During that time period, I focused on the expansion of the network of faculty and alumnae, and its associated programs. I expanded the design of the core retreat program to reach women in corporate settings, all the while enhancing the CIYO's reach as an affordable public offering.

Finally, depending on the project or initiative, I collaborate with other organizational development practitioners to either host conferences, facilitate large group processes within offsites or explore the impact of mindfulness on leadership impact.

My current home base is in the Southwest of the US where I moved to be closer to family, while I spend a significant portion of my time in New York and Los Angeles, as well as in Europe (mainly in London and Rome).
