Who We Are



Meet Felicia Lyon, CEO & Founder

I’m so glad you found Panthera Leadership. As an executive leadership coach and consultant, I’m passionate about helping businesses build inclusive, high-performing leadership teams that positively impact revenue, employee engagement, and productivity.

After working as a human capital consultant with a top-tier firm, I observed that the success of any initiative was directly related to the leadership’s level of capability. I founded Panthera Leadership to help CEOs, business owners and executives to reach higher levels of performance.

I’ve had the privilege of working with hundreds of leaders which has allowed me to develop a proprietary leadership modality that grows and grooms individuals so their companies achieve superior results.

Better leaders. More engaged employees. Happier customers. Better world.
