After years in domestic and international corporate positions Allen launched an independent coaching practice while completing his MBA at Arizona State University in 2005. Consulting engagements at the executive and senior management level, business operations, and across functional areas within organizations have contributed to his skills in Organizational Development and Change Management.

Allen has continued to augment his practitioner’s skillset by completing a PhD in Industrial and Organizational (I/O) Psychology. This has allowed Allen to delve deeper into the development of leader-follower relationships. Allen’s relocation to Middle Tennessee in 2021 was done with the intention of serving God’s eternal purpose with a focus on helping businesses incorporate ministry into their organizations.
