Our Founder Dwight Mihalicz
Complex times call for serious solutions. Dwight’s breadth and depth of experience, knowledge, and organizational know-how are integral in making those solutions work for your organization.
Dwight has founded and is President of Effective ManagersTM , a management consulting firm based in Canada that provides services globally through a network of consulting firms. In 2013 Effective ManagersTM partnered with the Telfer School of Management at the University of Ottawa to conduct groundbreaking research on understanding the dynamics of manager effectiveness in the workplace. This led to the development of a survey to assess manager effectiveness, and The Effective Point of Accountability® framework. These have been used successfully by organizations to improve accountability for the delegation of work and collaboration across functions. This breaks down silos and aligns the effort of the work force to focus on strategic goals.
Using his experience as a manager, executive, head of organizations, and management consultant, Dwight helps Owners, CEOs and their executives maintain the balancing act required to maximize their organizations’ performance. He is able to translate complex concepts into simpler yet robust approaches that can be applied immediately.
Dwight has an MBA from the University of Ottawa, where he also served as the Director of the Dean’s Advisory Board at the Telfer School of Management. He is a Certified Management Consultant. He is an accredited ISO 20700 Instructor, and trains consultants on this management consulting services standard. Dwight has been recognized as a Fellow of the Business Excellence Institute. He has also been elected a Fellow of Institute of Management Consultants of Ontario, Canada, in recognition of his outstanding contributions to his profession, his clients and to the community.
Dwight has also contributed globally to the profession of management consulting. He volunteered for international task forces of the International Council of Management Consulting Institutes, the global membership body for Institutes of Management Consulting. His efforts were recognized when he was elected to be Treasurer of the Global Board. In 2018 he was elected for a three year term as the Chair of ICMCI, and now serves on the Board as Past Chair.
An author of many papers and publications, Dwight has recently published The Effective CEO: The Balancing Act that Drives Sustainable Performance, a book that explores the key functions that must be carried out by a successful CEO.
