About Us


Darren Overfield

EVP of Coaching and Consulting

I advise organizations on the people side of the business equation. I coach executives to become more effective leaders and leadership teams to perform better by developing the behaviors and mindsets required for success. My collaborative, pragmatic approach is a practical application of research-based behavioral science informed by hands-on management experience.

Prior to becoming an organizational consultant, I held management positions at General Electric (GE) and Genworth Financial in IT, Marketing, and as a Six Sigma Black Belt. I earned a master’s degree in clinical psychology from the University of Virginia and an MBA from North Carolina State University. I was trained as an executive coach at the Center for Creative Leadership (CCL), where I have served as an adjunct faculty member since 2007.

Complementing my consulting practice, I am an author, speaker, and researcher on the subjects of leadership and teams. I have written articles for a range of publications including Harvard Business Review, Chief Learning Officer, Consulting Psychology Journal, and The Psychologist-Manager Journal. And I have presented my work at professional conferences.
