Sandra Martinez draws on her experience in business, sciences and the arts to design and deliver leadership development programs with a focus on navigating turbulence and uncertainty with resilience. To foster innovation, transformation, and high performance, she brings a depth and breadth of experience and scientific rigor to her work across diverse sectors and industries. She is recognized as an innovator in adapting the principles of vertical development to support leaders; she has presented and published broadly on this subject.

Sandra has found that an adult developmental perspective melded with an understanding of complex systems best captures the dynamics of today’s complex environments and provides a valuable lens for leaders, teams, and organizations.

During the past 12 years, Sandra has successfully coached a broad range of leaders globally ranging from Fortune 500 executives, to national security leaders, to senior leaders in healthcare, life sciences, tech, education, finance, international development, the arts, consumer products, manufacturing and finance, as well as grassroots organizers dedicated to leading change in their communities.

As an instructor and researcher at the Wharton School, Sandra contributed to the GLOBE project which compares leadership across 67 societies. She supported scenario planning processes as a member of the Decision Strategies International team. After serving on the faculty of the US Army War College, she remained active with the International Transformation Chairs Network to invigorate the education and development of security leaders globally. In 2009-12 she lived in Central America, supporting regional family businesses and working to develop entrepreneurs and other groups active in civil society.
