Seth Levenson is an experienced consultant, coach, and coaching supervisor with an entrepreneurial track record in strategy consulting, executive education, software development, and change management. He helps clients focus their efforts in ways that will drive meaningful change and significant results.
Seth’s easy style and keen sense of humor allow him to be direct and, as one client noted, “to say things in a way that people can hear them.” He prides himself on what another client called, “being firm and gentle at the same time.” Using head, heart and “gut,” Seth is able to listen deeply, make sense of a situation, and offer up questions and observations that create practical insight. He then “gets out of the way” to let his clients be responsible for their own successes.
Before his coaching and supervision career, Seth was Vice President and Founder of the People Solutions Practice at Digitas, then a publicly-traded marketing agency focused on helping its clients connect with their customers through multiple channels. Additionally, Seth was a Co-founder and Chairman of Executive Perspectives, where he was responsible for both firm management and client delivery until after he sold the firm to a publicly-held company. Early in his career, Seth worked in consulting at Bain & Company, focused on consumer products and acquisition analysis.
