Sydney Joyner

Smart leaders gain new perspective by scheduling time  each month to step away from the day-to-day worries and  focus on long-term goals and impassioned visions. This fuels  them to lead with passion, focus and clarity, and engage the  critical people talent in their organizations, inspiring them to  manage and work with the highest level of commitment."

Sydney Joyner has over 25 years’ experience working with chief executives on their business strategies, leadership development, and organizational dynamics.

As founder and president of The Joyner Group in Vancouver, Washington, Sydney works with CEOs, COOs, CFOs, and other executives on their leadership performance, roles and responsibilities. Her firm's other services and tools include leadership development plans, executive succession and generational transition, organizational change management, communications messaging and rollouts, and team formation and processes.

CEOs of companies experiencing start-up challenges, rapid growth, life cycle changes in launching new products and services, and integrating new executives have benefited from her services, insight, and compelling experience.

Sydney has served on the boards of Oregon Public Broadcast, the Association for Corporate Growth, the Oregon College of Art and Craft, and the Portland Creative Conference. She holds an MBA from Marylhurst University with a concentration in Organizational Development. She has also taught as an adjunct professor in Organizational Design and Entrepreneurialism at Portland State University and Marylhurst University.

When Sydney is not working on The Joyner Group projects, she spends her time pursuing her passions of traveling, gardening, painting, and riding motorcycles. They all provide what she describes as “Zen” moments and inspiration – where time is not measured, just experienced and enjoyed. She looks forward to early spring weekends traveling to the local farms and nurseries to add to her already abundant plantings of hydrangeas, heirloom roses, and lavender.

This coming year a motorcycle trip to the southwest Painted Desert and touring trip to the Tuscany hills in Italy are on the wish list.

Sydney is based in Vancouver, Washington.
