About Lance Hazzard
Prior to founding Oppnå® Executive & Achievement Coaching, Inc., Lance Hazzard served as a Vice President of Human Resources at Medtronic, working in multiple business units and large group functional capacities. During his 19-year tenure with the corporation, Lance helped lead integration efforts with a number of mergers/acquisitions, aligned teams, managed global budgets and organizations, and coached numerous leaders and employees. Previously, Lance worked with RCA, GE and Thomson as an HR professional and leader in the consumer electronics industry. In total, Lance’s HR career encompassed more than 35 years while working with several Fortune 100 companies.
Lance’s first experience with executive coaching dates back to 2003, when he personally benefitted from being paired with a coach. Ten years later, Lance volunteered to participate in Medtronic’s Inaugural Coaching Cadre, which was based upon the process developed by the internationally recognized, Coaches Training Institute (CTI). Using the CTI Co-Active Coach® method, the yearlong program required cadre members to coach high potential, emerging leaders within Medtronic. Participation in the program equipped Lance to serve others in the same way that he had been served, and inspired him to continue training.
Lance holds multiple coaching certifications, including the Certified Professional Co-Active Coach® (CPCC) designation through CTI, the Associate Certified Coach (ACC) credential with the International Coach Federation (ICF) and the Intelligent Leadership Executive Coaching Certification through John Mattone University.
Lance is co-author of the book, Accelerating Leadership, written to help leaders integrate executive coaching in their organizations.
