Why Equinox Leadership?

Effective leadership starts with balancing the competing priorities and demands that we juggle in our personal and professional lives. The equinox represents just that—the balance that we seek in how we lead, make decisions, and accomplish great work. The equinox, a word derived from Latin, refers to when the earth is in perfect balance. Its axis is neither inclined toward nor away from the sun. Ultimately this balance is at the core of what we want to achieve with our clients through leadership development, assessment, coaching, training and consultation. The fact that this rare event happens only twice a year underscores the complex nature of effective leadership.

Equinox is also a time of transition or change from winter to spring or summer to fall. With our breadth of services, we strive to achieve worthwhile changes in individuals, teams, and organizations. The vernal equinox, or first day of spring, also represents growth and new life. When balance and worthwhile change have been achieved, there is the opportunity for growth.
