Darren Hoevel is a people person with 7.125 billion friends and counting. He’s a passionate agile realist, organizational change advocate, corporate cultural renovator, customer ambassador, and co-founder of Pliant Solutions. He is driven by “Organizational Evolution,” creating self-organizing, self-managing teams supported by vulnerability, curiosity, the wiliness to experiment, and the forever openness to learn.
Darren prides himself on not just being a coach but showing up as his whole-hearted self to accelerate progression within individuals, teams, and programs, which, in turn, contributes directly to the health and success of an organization. He has helped large organizations discover their culture, change their mindset, and create enough structure to scale their processes and practices. He believes nothing is more influential than the soles of one’s own shoes and the courage of one’s own vision.
