Mark Sundby, M.Div., Ph.D., L.P.

Leadership Assessment and Development | Executive Selection | Leadership Coach

Mark views self-awareness as the key to effective leadership. With over twenty years as a psychologist and ten years in the field of executive assessment and selection, he works with specific, research-based criteria to raise awareness in individuals and organizations about what contributes to high potential leaders. He enjoys identifying and developing the hallmarks of excellence in others.

For executive selection, Mark works closely with organizations to determine the benchmarks for success in particular positions. He then tailors an assessment and selection process that draws upon the best of psychological research to inform the practicalities of day-to-day business. Topics typically assessed and discussed include self-management, management of others, motivational level, decision-making ability, conflict management, leadership capacity, and interpersonal skills.

For leadership development, Mark begins with psychological assessment to establish a baseline for coaching. By combining assessment results with the goals of the individual and organization, he and the executive or employee collaborate to establish strategies for growth. His approach is holistic, strengths-based, and developmental.

In addition to being a psychologist, Mark is an ordained United Methodist minister in the Wisconsin Conference, and serves as executive director of North Central Ministry Development Center in New Brighton, MN. He has his B.A. from St. Olaf College, M.Div. from the University of Chicago, and Ph.D. from the University of Minnesota.

Mark and his wife are celebrating twenty-five years of marriage this year, and they have two teenage sons. For fun, he spends time with family, cooks, cross country skis, and bicycles. He recently rode his bicycle across Iowa and proudly notes that he pedaled every inch of the RAGBRAI (Register’s Annual Great Bicycle Ride Across Iowa)!
