About Antony

After graduating from a business and engineering school in the UK, Antony worked in production management for a British textile company. He then completed his Masters in European Economics and Business Institutions at the University of Strasbourg, France. He worked as a sales manager for a Swiss company, and then started the division in Eastern France for a Dutch brokerage business. 

In all this, Antony’s interest was in developing leaders, and after he came to the US in the late 80’s, he worked as a subcontractor for a training organization. He worked with hundreds of people in many different organizations, helping them lead and change their organizations. It was during this time he was struck by the confusion around leadership and how many leaders were struggling with the challenge of leading in very complex environments. Antony's pursuit became one of finding a way that would help them the most make sense of the confusion, and that led to the creation of LeaderDevelopment, Inc. (LDI) and the subsequent development of the LDI Leadership Framework.

Are there Guiding Principles or Ideals for Everything You Do?

Yes- my values are also those reflected in my company, LDI:

  • Think like a steward, not owner
  • Speak the truth with love
  • Improve and innovate constantly
  • Server others, not self

These values are faith-driven; I am a follower of Christ. Those who work with us do not have to be followers of Christ-far from it. These are nonetheless our values.
