Danielle Johnson Crowley
The Marriage of Passion and Credentials
Melding her strong business background with her passion for helping others succeed, Danielle coaches high-potential emerging and current leaders to deepen their leadership capacity and realize greater performance results.
Prior to becoming an executive coach, Danielle quickly advanced within the highly competitive, merger-ridden culture of the financial services world. In this intense work environment she learned the crucial impact leadership has on the satisfaction and engagement of an organization’s associates, and how the growth of one leader can incite a domino effect, impacting thousands. This discovery led her into leadership coaching and development – to help build engaged, passionate leaders who create thriving teams.

- Project Management Professional (PMP)
- International work, study and travel
Her clients include leaders from Wells Fargo, Capital One, Bloomberg, Thomson Reuters, Boston Consulting Group, Northrup Grumman, and the National Institute of Health (NIH) among other large and small organizations.
Gutsy, Curious, Open-Hearted Explorer
You might not expect a young woman from the south – Virginia, to be exact – to work on an archeological dig in Tunisia or study in Japan. And you may also not expect her to, at age 24, leave a promising corporate career and begin a year-long solo journey around the world, backpacking to 13 countries mainly in Southeast Asia and the Middle East. But Danielle did.
During that time, she volunteered for Mother Theresa’s charity, providing healthcare to the homeless in Calcutta, India; met the Dali Lama in his home; lived in a Buddhist nunnery in the Indian Himalayas; and was evacuated out of the Middle East. These and other experiences aid Danielle’s understanding of our global economy and the challenges professionals face while advancing in multinational, multicultural organizations.
On the Lightness of Being
I believe that change is inevitable, except from a vending machine.
(Robert C. Gallegher)
I am so committed to my work that I would kill for a Nobel Peace prize.
In this world of staggering workloads and deadlines, mergers, lay-offs, and office politics, embracing humor and a sense of lightness helps maintain perspective.
