Sandra Martinez

Sandra M. Ph.D. is the President of Fénix Leadership & Development, LLC, a thought leader in leadership development and organizational transformation. Though Fénix, Sandra supports leaders in exploring their values and life purpose and enhancing their awareness of themselves and their environment in order to expand their choices and adopt new, more effective behaviors. Although Sandra draws on many frameworks to create a tailored approach to consulting and coaching, she has found that a developmental perspective, integrated with an understanding of complex systems, polarities and advances in neuroscience, captures for leaders the dynamics of what they are experiencing to offer them a valuable lens.
