Erika and Staff

Pro­teus Inter­na­tion­al grew out of a desire to help lead­ers get ready for the future. Since our start in 1990, we’ve been help­ing clients get clear about the future they want to cre­ate for them­selves and then con­sis­tent­ly choose the sim­plest, most fea­si­ble ways to make that future a reality.

Our prac­tice has grown from two US-based con­sul­tants to two dozen world­wide, sup­port­ed by a tal­ent­ed and ded­i­cat­ed admin­is­tra­tive staff—but our mis­sion remains the same: to help clients clar­i­fy and move toward their hoped-for future.

We have the great priv­i­lege of work­ing with clients all over the world help­ing them improve their skills, define the future of their orga­ni­za­tions, and work bet­ter togeth­er to achieve that future. And we take pride in prac­tic­ing what we preach. As we help our clients move toward their hoped-for-future, we are doing the same for ourselves.

Our Areas of Practice

Strengthening Leaders


Orga­ni­za­tions need lead­ers who are ready to lead; who cat­alyze change and who elic­it trust and com­mit­ment from those around them. We coach lead­ers to become ful­ly fol­low­able and achieve out­stand­ing results by build­ing high-per­form­ing teams.

  • Exec­u­tive Coaching
  • Per­son­al Vision and Strategy
  • High-Per­form­ing Teams
Creating the Future


This is where we put our approach to help­ing clients cre­ate their envi­sioned future, out­lined in Erika’s books Being Strate­gic and Change from the Inside Out, into prac­tice. We work with com­pa­nies of all sizes and types to clar­i­fy com­pa­ny visions and envi­sion a suc­cess­ful orga­ni­za­tion, craft a prac­ti­cal plan for get­ting there, and engage their peo­ple in mak­ing it a reality.

  • Vision & Strategy
  • Process Excel­lence
  • Coach­ing
Building Skills and Knowledge

Leadership Development

To achieve the future they’ve envi­sioned, all the lead­ers in an orga­ni­za­tion must con­tin­u­al­ly upgrade their lead­er­ship and man­age­ment skills. We help client com­pa­nies pro­vide crit­i­cal learn­ing that changes atti­tudes and behav­iors to build high-per­form­ing teams.
