As a Senior Associate with JMW, Doug Fisher has over 20 years experience working with leaders from some of the world’s most successful companies in Europe, the United States and beyond.

In all his client engagements, Doug works alongside leaders to generate new levels of performance through alignment sessions, leadership programs, team building, and executive coaching.

Clients describe Doug’s approach as insightful and engaging with a unique ability to help people see and get beyond their own limits.

Doug’s experience and areas of expertise include:

  • The design and delivery of leadership development programs focused on measurable performance improvements
  • Organizational strategy implementation and execution
  • The design and implementation of organizational interventions to accomplish new levels of functioning and results
  • Executive team alignment
  • Individual and team focus and productivity
  • Executive coaching

As an example, Doug was instrumental in the transformation of one of Europe’s largest petrochemical and refining sites – from the poorest performing site in Europe to one of the best performing sites. After working with Doug and the JMW team for a year, site leaders posted their first profits in more than a decade, improved plant availability from 88 percent to 95 percent, and boosted safety statistics by more than 300 percent. In addition, fixed costs dropped to the lowest ever recorded at the site.

In another client engagement with a newly privatized company that had operated as a governmental entity for decades, Doug worked with leaders to set objectives that would ensure breakthrough successes in the short term, as well as lay the groundwork for future high performance. Although the organization had no history of competing for contracts, during the course of their work with Doug and JMW, the organization’s top tier of executives led an effort to adopt new approaches to competition, including entering new markets, and delivered historic success for the company: six new contracts in less than a year.

Doug holds a Bachelor’s Degree in cognitive psychology, which he earned with honors from Rutgers University and was named a Paul Robeson scholar for research in the field.

Doug lives in Denver, Colorado and in his spare time he likes to cook, go to the theatre, dance and keep fit. He also contributes to numerous pro bono efforts.
