Randy Chittum, Ph.D. has spent his 25-year career working with leaders and executives worldwide in a variety of organizational settings. He works at all levels of the organization, specializing in leadership development (individual and team coaching, leadership workshops covering emotional intelligence, coaching for managers, managing change and transition, and branding and personal presence), and organization development (team and system level interventions) including strategy development and learning to collectively think differently to support sustainable change.

Randy enjoys being in the conversation with leaders that they most need and want to have. He brings transparency and lightness to his coaching that creates an environment conducive to the work. His intention when working with leaders is to create sustainable change through mindful practice. Randy
believes that a leader’s ability to slow the action and reflect on one’s internal landscape is the key to leading effectively in a world often characterized by uncertainty, volatility, ambiguity, and increasing complexity. Leaders in today’s world have to become comfortable in the paradox of “being still while in motion.”

Randy has coached leaders and teams in charitable non-profits, local and federal government, and corporations ranging from start-ups to multi-billion dollar organizations. 


He recently served as Vice President, Leadership Development at a publicly traded company, where he reported to the CEO and coached executives, created and managed succession planning programs, taught leaders, and worked with intact teams to enhance performance. After nine years this company
was acquired, and Randy’s role and commitment shifted to supporting leaders as they engaged in the very challenging work of continuing to lead during the biggest change most of them had encountered. A focus on stillness and pausing in the complexity, managing personal transitions, staying true to a core belief of “who I am as a leader” all proved beneficial to the leaders in both companies.


Randy served on the faculty of the Georgetown University Leadership Coaching program in the Institute of Transformational Leadership where he was the Program Director for the Executive Development program and taught in the Leadership Coaching program. He has previously taught leadership and organizational development at both the undergraduate and graduate level at Georgetown University, among others. He is a contributing author to On Becoming a Leadership Coach (2012).

Sheryl Phillips, a leadership consultant and executive coach, has partnered with leaders for over 20 years to create more effective organizations. 

She works at the individual, team and system level providing services in executive coaching, leadership development and leadership team development.  

Sheryl has designed, developed and delivered numerous Leadership Development Programs for clients. Sheryl also works extensively with leadership teams to develop their capacity to communicate and coordinate action; and to create both strategic and operational plans. Sheryl also provides Executive Coaching to individual leader clients and has worked with hundreds of clients across the public, non-profit and corporate sectors. 

Prior to beginning her own practice in 2001, Sheryl spent over 10 years as a Senior Executive in government. As a long-time senior executive, Sheryl has a unique insider perspective on the challenges of leaders, particularly within large, complex settings.

Sheryl has her Master’s degree from the College of William and Mary and a Bachelor’s degree from Auburn University.

“I have sat in many workshops before and Still Leading is a step above. He kept it moving along, light, and not on a high horse "preaching" to us. And most importantly, I thought it was a success"

'"Randy truly has a special way in connecting with the leadership team and getting us to stretch our talent a little further until it almost feels uncomfortable.  By doing this, you have prepared me to face the challenges that I may face"
