Founded in 2012 by Doug Lundrigan, Lighthouse Leadership is based in Wilsonville Oregon. Lighthouse has contracts in Oregon and Washington, and is willing to do work anywhere. It has become a highly sought after deliverer of performance improvement training, coaching, and consulting. Doug and his colleagues are highly experienced and perform excellent work. They come from a variety of backgrounds, but what they share in common is a passion for making a positive difference in the lives and careers of individuals, assisting the leaders of organizations to transform their culture, and accelerate the talent development of their people. Would your organization benefit from that?
Lighthouse found its first clients in the health care and government sectors. Noteworthy clients, past and present are Oregon Health Sciences University (OHSU), Oregon Liquor Control Commission (OLCC), Marylhurst University, US Army Corps of Engineers, Port of Portland, City of Beaverton, and others.
Lighthouse’s greatest success is with the US Army Corps of Engineers in Seattle. Lighthouse obtained the contract to develop and present the curriculum the their Leadership Development Program, Level 2 (LDP2). This is a huge three-year contract that includes (annually)132 hours of classroom instruction, three retreats, six online assessments, 36 hours of coaching, a field trip, and other elements. Participants must compete with their peers to get a seat in the program. Doug Lundrigan is the lead instructor for the program, and many of his colleagues serve as sub-contracted instructors. The success of the program became well-known among the 800+ employees in the USACE Seattle District. Many of the testimonials provided on this website are quotes from program participants. Doug is very proud of his work with this government agency. In addition to the many positive comments, the program had the outcome that greater than half of participants were promoted to a higher level of responsibility and compensation within six months after completion of the LDP2. Doug was also awarded the Commander’s Coin for excellence in his work on this program. Additional outcomes that Doug appreciates very much are the continuing friendships he still has with many past individual students.
Doug would love to share the details of the OHSU physician/department head he coached through some challenging personnel issues, or the attorney he assisted to see better ways to grow her practice, or the government contracting agent he coached from having continual conflict, to having peaceful productive interactions with contractors, or the dozens of leaders he coached to find “Aha!” moments to greater success. But those details are confidential, so he won’t share them.
Doug is fond of saying, “I love what I do so much, I would do it for no pay, if I didn’t need to make a living.”
