Changing lives through purpose-driven leadership...
WELCOMe to whitman consulting:
The current COVID-19 environment, with all of its complexities and unique problems, needs purpose-driven leaders more than ever.
Purpose-driven companies have been shown to outperform their peers over the long term (Harvard Business Review). This is because when leaders take the focus off themselves and place it on serving something bigger, not only does the work become more fulfilling, but leaders also become more valuable to the world. These are purpose-driven leaders.
A purpose-driven leader is a leader that has discovered how his or her personal purpose aligns with that of their organization and leads from this place to inspire others to deliver results that matter to all. This form of leadership is craved in organizations today and has a tremendous impact on employee engagement.
Whitman Consulting’s impetus is to change lives by helping people reach their full potential through services that can be customized to serve all levels, from emerging leaders to mid-level managers, encouraging purpose-driven leadership along the way. Through our solutions, individuals are fulfilled, organizations thrive, and purpose-driven leaders are empowered.

About Our LEADER
Meet Andre W. Thornton, Founder & CEO of Whitman Consulting. Above the bathroom sink in his home is a phrase that reads, “Change lives by helping people reach their full potential”. This desire has evolved into a purpose statement for Whitman Consulting that serves its clients by accelerating the development of their leaders.
Andre has lived his life as an example of how someone can pursue their purpose while in the corporate world. As a young professional, he strategically moved up in his field, ultimately earning the position of Engineering Director at Lockheed Martin. His practical business experiences provide invaluable insights for his clients, having performed on some of the most advanced aircraft programs and technologies in the world. While an Innovator at Lockheed Martin, he delivered results ranging from implementing a new Computer-Aided Design technology that saved $2.7M, to capturing over $1B of new business. These results are rooted in the competencies that advanced his career and are now transferred to others through Whitman Consulting’s leadership development services.
