Effective leadership is critical to any organization. So, how would you define effective leadership, and what qualities do the best leaders possess? In episode 18, I speak to Deborah Coviello, founder of Illumination Partners and the Drop-In CEO podcast, about work-life integration, the sport of curling, and the importance of purpose in our work.



When hiring a consultant, Deborah Coviello knows that your primary goal will always be a resolution to a problem. As the Drop in CEO Deborah provides her clients with 20+ years worth of experience and strategy in Quality and Operational Excellence roles. She uses that knowledge in addition to her 15 years in the Flavors and Fragrance industry to identify, assess, and solve the issues that are preventing your business growth.   Deborah also understands that people are the heart of your business. In order to deliver on her promise of offering you “peace of mind,” she focuses on utilizing the talents of your team and elevating them to new levels of performance, setting them up to better serve your organization.

As the only female quality and continuous improvement consultant in the Flavors and Fragrances industry, Deborah has further demonstrated expertise, gaining recognition from the following:

  • American Society for Quality (ASQ)Certified Six Sigma Black Belt
  • Givaudan Lean Black Belt
  • Motorola University Six Sigma Green Belt Instructor  

When she isn’t transforming businesses from within, Deborah is the host of the Drop in CEO podcast and avid curler. Deborah continues to give back to the ASQ community through mentorship, sharing practical application of the Human Development & Learning body of knowledge to everyday situations.
