Doug Lundrigan, MBA
Lighthouse Leadership – Director of Training & Strategy, Master Instructor, Master Coach
Doug has a passion for helping people advance their careers and rise above their own limitations. What’s holding you back from greater success? Doug can help you discover and rise above your limitations.
Born and raised in Edmonton, Canada, Doug began his instructional and coaching career at a young age, speaking to groups of hundreds by age 16. With a Bachelor of Science degree in hand, he started his corporate career in pharmaceutical sales, then promoted to positions of increasing responsibility in leadership and training. Doug earned dozens of awards over his corporate career, including the coveted “Cornerstone Club” award for top 10% performance over a ten year period. Later, with an amazing executive MBA under his belt, Doug decided to leave the corporate life and build his own business doing what he loves most – helping others succeed. That became the 2012 birth of Lighthouse Leadership.
To describe Doug, people closest to him use the words, “sincere,” “the most honest man I know,” “genuine,” “trustworthy,” and “the best leader I’ve ever had.” An independent assessment demonstrated that Doug possesses the following strengths: commitment, responsibility, teaching and coaching, strategic analysis, and adhering to his strong moral compass.
Some of Doug’s Leadership Development students say this about him:
- I appreciate that he has a high degree of knowledge in all the subjects that have been presented. He has the ability to link research, stats, and studies to real world business and personal leadership.
- Doug makes you think and gets good participation from the class . . . provides excellent ideas as well as thoughts to ponder on. Videos and slides are of great value to the topic and easy to relate or understand.
- I like that Doug seems to really care about the people he is instructing. And I really, really appreciate that he ties current teachings back to previous teachings. Because there is so much content to think about.
- He’s engaging without being judgmental. He allows for free expression openly and then summarizes the value nuggets out of the sometimes rambling discussion.
- Doug is unassuming, affable, and easy to listen too. He presents the material at a good pace and clearly studies his delivery style and practices his class material presentations.
- He can relate topics to our level. He doesn’t talk “above” us and really makes the content approachable and easy to digest.
- The most effective part of Doug’s instruction is the trusting relationship that he was able to establish with us right away.
Volunteer service has been an integral part of Doug’s life. He has held leadership roles at the Epilepsy Foundation, Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, Boy Scouts of America, YMCA, and the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.
Trina D’Amico, MA
Talent Management Professional
Trina D’Amico’s career began when she joined “the tribe” at Intel Corporation. She developed great enthusiasm in working with smart, caring, tech-savvy, and results-oriented professionals. Trina spent the first 12 years of her career in desktop publishing roles that supported the launch of new computer hardware and software products. As a leader she found great enjoyment in helping team members reach their targets and become more successful. She was inspired to earn a master’s degree in Organizational Development from Antioch University and honed her skills further through New Ventures West’s Integral Coaching Program.
For the next 9 years, Trina developed talent at Intel through management coaching, strategic planning, organizational development, on-boarding, and leadership development. As a volunteer instructor with Intel University for 13 years, she taught over 1,000 hours to 3,357 students, maintaining a 90% satisfaction rating. Courses included communications, soft skills, personal effectiveness, business basics, and leadership development.
Following a radical reorganization, Trina left Intel and joined the Port of Portland where she actively managed the talent pipeline through learning and development. Her most recent role at the Port was as a Strategic HR Business Partner. She served as a trusted advisor to chief officers and their teams in support of several technical divisions.
After 11 years at the Port, she left corporate life to pursue a long-time dream of starting her own coaching and consulting business. Given her background supporting technical organizations and leaders, her business, “Development 4 Nerds” is focused on leadership and team development of technical professionals. There is nothing more exciting to her than helping smart, capable professionals become highly valued leaders who motivate others, meet the expectations of their stakeholders, and better impact the world—a mission well aligned with Lighthouse Leadership.
