About Our Leadership Facilitator

Mitch Simon, JD, MBA has been in the business of developing leaders for the past twenty-three years. Formerly Director of Strategic Planning and Strategic Alliances at Nokia, Mitch founded the Simon Leadership Alliance in 2002. His clients come from the science, technology, communications, construction, real estate and banking fields; many have retained his services for years, as working with Mitch has helped them reach and maintain the top position in their fields. Mitch believes that actions are often limited by one’s beliefs. To achieve new goals, one must investigate those beliefs and move past them. He stresses honesty and integrity as crucial foundations for effective leadership and authentic, powerful conversations as the fuel that propels those leaders to reach their goals. Building and motivating high-performance teams to create and implement breakthrough strategies allows leaders to enhance their impact. An avid outdoorsman, Mitch has summitted both Mt. Ranier and Mt. Whitney and has a black belt in Tae Kwon Doe. He is the co-author of The Trusted Advocate: Accelerate Success with Authenticity and Integrity.
