Kathleen Ryan is known for her work in turning fear-based organizations into ones where collaboration and trust are the keys to high performance. She is a principal of The Orion Partnership, a consulting firm based near Seattle, Washington that she formed in 1984 with her husband, Bud Orr.

Over the years, their consulting services have concentrated on supporting executives as they meet the challenges of rapidly changing business environments, providing guidance on organization-wide culture change efforts, executive feedback, and senior level team development. Kathleen is particularly skilled at helping individuals and groups address the difficult-to-talk-about, underlying issues that frequently block high performance.
