League of Allies believes superior performance is generated when people of all backgrounds can work together on equal and balanced bases. We call this “inclusive synergy.” We also believe leaders, at all levels but specifically at the top, must be on board to enable this synergy. To these ends, we offer management/board presentations, in-person workshops, online learning programs, organizational diagnostic/due diligence products, and related certifications for both corporations and investors.
Prior to starting The League, Lawler served in positions such as Chief People Officer in technology companies, Managing Director of a global consulting practice, a variety of executive positions running turnarounds, Director in an executive search practice, and a stint doing M&A strategy consulting. He started his career in a Customer Service position at a Japanese multi-national while simultaneously running a socially responsible import firm out of Yogyakarta, Indonesia.
He has also written two books, Passion at Work (Pearson Prentice Hall), which led to a belonging workshop business servicing firms such as Cisco, HP, and Pfizer, and The E Ticket, a fictional thriller that has been hailed as being “a groundswell for the next wave of feminism.”
Lawler earned an MBA in Entrepreneurial Management from The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania and a BA in International Studies from Vassar College. He lives in Manchester-by-the-Sea, MA with his wife, three kids (one is in college), and a huge-eyed, persnickety cat. He loves to ski, and stand up paddleboards year round.
