danbrownDan coaches individual leaders, teams and work groups within government agencies, non-profit organizations and private enterprise. He brings to ELP's financial-services clientele a strong background in bank regulation, enforcement and supervision. As former publisher of "The Bank President’s Letter and Bank Safety & Soundness Advisor", Dan has provided institutions with news, analysis and guidance to help them comply with FDIC, OCC, and Federal Reserve safety-and-soundness requirements. His knowledge of the CAMELS exam process and of the policies and procedures required to avoid or comply with regulatory enforcement orders enables Dan to be especially effective as a coach in ELP engagements with financial institutions.

Dan's leadership-development focus is on helping mid- and upper-level managers not only develop hard skills, such as delegation and strategic thinking, but also to fundamentally expand their views of themselves and how they perceive their work surroundings so they can step up to increasingly complex challenges and solve them creatively and collaboratively.

Dan’s leadership coaching and strategic consulting is based on his own 28 years of experience as a business owner and leader himself. He has held many positions in his career, from line supervisor, to president of an Inc. 500 Fastest-Growing Company, to serving on the governing board of UCG, one of America’s largest, private B2B information companies. This experience gives Dan a deep understanding of the challenges leaders at all levels face and what it takes to grow and develop. He is a certified leadership coach through Georgetown University. He holds the Associate Certified Coach credential from the International Coach Federation. Dan is certified in the Emotional Social Competency Inventory, the Leadership Circle Profile 360, and the Maturity Assessment Profile. He is soon to be certified in The Immunity to Change coaching protocol developed by Dr. Robert Kegan of Harvard University, used to help leaders and their organizations overcome resistance to change.

Dan’s clients include the American Red Cross, Montgomery County Public Schools, Kiplinger Washington Editors, Business & Legal Resources, and the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science, among many others. He is also a coach for American University’s Key Executive Leadership Program, focused on developing leaders within federal-government agencies. Dan received his Bachelor’s of Science from the University of Maryland.
