“Leadership is not about having a magnetic personality — that can just as well be a glib tongue. It is not ‘making friends and influencing people’ — that is flattery. Leadership is lifting a person’s vision to high sights, the raising of a person’s performance to a higher standard, the building of a personality beyond its normal limitations.”
Peter F. Drucker

Expanding Thought was founded by Marian Thier in 1984 to help people think beyond the obvious about themselves and their work.

Our intentions, Expanding Thought:

  • Believes each person and company is unique; therefore, we provide solutions tailored to the needs of the client
  • Begins with strengths and builds upon them, rather than operating from a deficit mindset
  • Subscribes to the school that learning seats best when experienced
  • Accepts the premise that change and growth take practice, time, perseverance, and a sense of humor
