Who We Are

Leaders are not made or born. Leaders are grown through professional development and excellent coaching. You can quickly grow into being an exceptional leader of people and organizations with a solid plan, focused efforts, and the support of an experienced executive coach.

As Ralph Waldo Emerson said, “Our chief want is someone who will inspire us to be what we know we could be.” That’s my job. I help you become an inspiring leader. My name is Andy Dix. I’m a Growth Adviser, Board Certified Executive Coach and Certified Change Manager.

I’ve successfully lead teams, other leaders, change projects and non-profit groups. I’ve learned what works and what can derail a leader. I share my experiences and insights with people who want to become extraordinary leaders that people want to follow.

My individual approach to leadership development is called Inspiring Leadership https://adgrowthadvisers.com/inspiring-leadership-development/ Leadership is a dynamic interpersonal relationship where leaders and followers relate to one another effectively to achieve a desired change or purpose. According to a global leadership study, followers want leaders who are emotionally stable, interpersonally compassionate, trustworthy, and capable of inspiring hope. My approach to leadership development will get you growing in all of these key areas.

I have been fortunate to support a fantastic mix of highly talented leaders in various disciplines, such as sales, learning and development, human resources, operations, finance, creative production, IT, project and change management, and more. You can benefit from their combined experiences and wisdom as we work through your personal growth plan.

My quest to achieve my personal best as a leader, led me to write a book called, “Life Matches: Fire Up Your Life!.” Shortly after my book was published, I expanded my professional transformation by becoming one of a thousand Certified Performance Technologists in the world. Later, my desire to help other high achievers become their personal best, led me to become a Board Certified Executive Coach and Certified Change Manager.

I founded AD Growth Advisers Inc. and the Hopeful Hoosier Podcast after being unexpectedly downsized from my corporate role in 2016. Adversity like losing a job you love is a graduate level class that few people willingly sign-up for, but teaches much about perseverance, overcoming fear and doubt, as well as patience.

My style is honest and direct. I’m not for everyone. But those who do use my services stay focused on achieving their most desired results as fast as possible and have some fun along the journey to success as an inspiring leader..

If you want to level up your leadership skills, then let’s talk about getting you growing!
