Our Story

In 2000 Doug Sundheim was part of a “poof IPO” in which eight firms merged and went public on the same day. The merged firm was little more than a money-grab with no viable operating model. As the company quickly went bankrupt, it left Doug wondering how such smart people can make such dumb decisions. That led him on a journey to better understand team and leader dynamics and to pursue a masters degree in Organization and Leadership from Columbia University. In 2001, armed with both theory and experience, he opened The Sundheim Group to help leaders and teams lead more effectively.

Initially focused solely on executive coaching, TSG has evolved into providing a broader set of consulting services to help senior leaders and teams get clear, get aligned, and get moving on their highest priorities. We’ve worked with clients around the world across many industries. Our core beliefs guide our work on a daily basis.
