The Beginning of a Journey

The Teleos Leadership Institute was founded in 2002 by Dr. Frances Johnston and Dr. Annie McKee. Fran and Annie had worked together for years, first at the Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania, then in various consulting engagements and other ventures. They continue to be thought partners and great friends. We have been at the forefront of the application of EI to executives and senior leaders’ development. Together, with our colleagues we have helped to integrate the modern view of personal and professional leadership and organizational development.

Who We Are

Fran & Annie put everything they had into starting a business that they believed would help improve how people lead and manage organizations around the world. Prominent leaders and organizations found Teleos almost immediately and placed their bets on the impact a collaboration with Teleos could bring to their organizations.

From the start, the Teleos team has been committed to generating the best new ideas and practices to support resonant leadership, positive organizational dynamics, healthy workplaces and community well-being.

Fran and the Teleos team members are actively engaging in disseminating new ideas, models and leadership practices to serve as active thought leaders. Among the team’s accomplishments are bestselling books, professional articles, chapters and more.
