Joanne Steiner - Apriori Consulting

Joanne Steiner, Founding Partner

Joanne Steiner established Apriori with a simple goal: to enable clients to better understand and influence their stakeholders towards a shared aim.

Joanne has been supporting leaders and teams to improve their performance for more than 25 years. Before founding Apriori in 2000, she held senior leadership roles within Canon USA and the American Management Association, which involved leading the development of custom learning solutions, facilitating organisational transformation, and driving effective stakeholder engagement.

Within Apriori, Joanne leads the pharmaceutical / biotech practice, where she plies 18 years of industry experience to support senior and rising leaders in creating agile teams navigating VUCA environments.

Underlying all of Joanne’s work is a deep understanding of how people learn. She has first-hand experience of the complex challenges that leaders face in building teams and relationships that yield results. She combines her experience with insights from the latest research in behavioural psychology and neuroscience.

Joanne holds a Masters degree in Consulting & Coaching for Change from the University of Oxford’s Saïd Business School and HEC Paris, as well as Bachelors degrees in Business Management and Marketing from Rutgers University in the US.
