Neil Olson, JD

Managing Principal

Neil Olson is masterful at drawing leaders and teams into collaborative inquiry around their important business challenges. Neil’s capacity to quickly and fully engage enables him to become a container for real and profound change. He specializes in helping leaders become “present and affected” and to demonstrate “compassionate responsibility” so that inspiration becomes natural and passion for their work and team unavoidable.

Neil practiced law for 11 years at Derby, Cook, Quinby & Tweedt (now Bullivant Houser Bailey PC), first as an Associate and then as a Partner, before launching his own law firms. He draws upon his experience as an attorney and executive coach to provide clients with the support, motivation, structure, and discipline they need to activate their leadership potential and enable positive transformation. Some of the clients Neil has worked with include CSAA Insurance Group, Apollo Group, Ventura Foods, Kaiser-Permanente, Cisco, Federal Home Loan Bank, QuickLogic, and Chevron.

Neil holds a JD from the University of San Francisco Law School and a Bachelor’s degree from the University of North Dakota. He is a practitioner of various assessment instruments, including 5 Dynamics Success/Satisfaction and the Riso-Hudson Enneagram Type Indicator.

Neil and his family enjoy the adventures of living in San Francisco.
