Leadership is a Team Activity

With over 20 years of leadership experience in the private and public sector, our team is here to help you and your team become the best version of itself.


Hi! I'm Joshua Penner

I launched Penner & Co., Executive Strategy to address a critical gap in today’s world. While leadership books and gurus abound, operational & fundamentally good leadership remains elusive in board rooms, management courses, employee development programs, and many other public & private institutions.

My team and I are on a mission to change that!

Will you take this journey with us?
