Ted Ward brings more than 25 years of organizational leadership experience to Achieve Onward. Ted has a passion for serving as a change agent with groups needing to pivot toward new strategies and practices. Having a lifelong spirit of entrepreneurship, he has enjoyed numerous ventures, including some time with ComedySportz Indianapolis (Team-Based Improvisational Performance/Comedy) – where he discovered parallels to many of the team-building, customer service, leadership, and professional development practices/philosophies he had developed and shaped throughout his professional career, public service, and not-for-profit work. These attributes continue to inform and guide Achieve Onward’s training, development, and consultant work with individuals and organizations.
