Invest in Proven Leadership Growth
Loichinger Advantage LLC serves Wisconsin companies ready to enhance leadership capability, foster organization growth and drive marketplace advantage. As the founder and principal, Dan works exclusively with CEOs, executives and business owners from independently-owned, middle-market businesses.
Dan and his clients navigate the path to success together in an environment of confidentiality, discovery and trust. Although every client and leadership journey is unique, his goal is fulfill his professional commitments and develop enduring and meaningful relationships while enabling clients to achieve ‘Proven Leadership Growth.’
By interacting regularly with other successful CEOs in a transparent and open relationship, I not only learn, but also feel the challenge, respect, and connectedness that you would hope for in a strong peer group.
Dan asked the hard questions while guiding me to rediscover my strengths and passion, as I worked to better meet challenges and improve my leadership ability.
I found Dan to be a great listener who provided constructive feedback at the same time. Though I have 25 years of career experiences, I had never tried coaching before. Dan offered a refreshing perspective on how to make the most of it. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending him to anyone who, like me, might be wondering if they need a coach. The experience was invaluable to me.
Dan was engaging, a great listener, and extremely thought provoking as our strategy coach & facilitator. I highly recommend Dan.
