The Praemia Group
Consulting and Coaching for Game Changing Leadership
Lead from the front—beyond what’s possible—to achieve unprecedented results. That’s what’s needed, and what’s happening, to be successful in today’s landscape of exponential change, glaring transparency, radically shifting consumer attitudes and unparalleled global challenges.
We now live in a world where “better-than” results, or even big improvements, are wholly inadequate. The cost of incremental change is starkly clear: disappearing long-standing industries, collapsing landmark companies and emerging unpredictable marketplaces.
Alongside this demand for results is a rising public cry for business leaders to step up and serve the collective good. We see more leaders aligning with this dual challenge: “make more profit” and “make a better world.”
These leaders hear our unsettled world’s demands and are committed to producing unprecedented contributions for their stakeholders – all of them. What’s more, we see strikingly positive evidence that companies that focus on adding value for all stakeholders consistently outperform those focused primarily on shareholder value.*
This is the winning scenario—unprecedented results and societal contribution.
For over forty years, the Praemia Group team has been at the forefront with CEOs, boards and senior executives who want to break from status quo complacency. We help them build the kind of competencies in themselves, and their teams, that they then use to deliver unprecedented results.
Our clients are game-changing leaders who inspire people to go beyond what was previously thought possible. These leaders operate from the vanguard: not only transforming their organizations and markets, but also reshaping the business of the world and the world of business.

With Laura Roberts
“Until I worked with Praemia I had this repeating feeling of exasperation when action plans would break down. It felt like I was in the movie Groundhog Day. That all changed when I came to really understand how critical the process of creating alignment is to a company. Once we began our work with Praemia, I started to see clearly that my assumptions that the team shared the same understanding of the commitments were incorrect. With Praemia’s partnership and methodology real transformation started to occur. We are now truly aligned with a deep shared understanding and together we are on a business journey and a change journey to scale our business and change the chemical industry.”
–Laura Roberts, CEO Pantheon Enterprises
