Erika Lamont Picture

Erika Lamont has spent her entire professional career doing what she loves most: helping to make a difference in organizations — and in the lives of individuals who lead them — by providing Leadership Solutions that move people and their companies forward.

This passion led Erika to co-found Connect the Dots Consulting 2006. It has also established Erika’s reputation as one of the most effective, proven professionals delivering leadership coaching, onboarding and team dynamics, all centered on each client’s unique, realistic and measurable goals.

While Erika’s expertise spans the spectrum of Leadership consulting, she is regarded as one of the most astute providers of operational analysis, having helped hundreds of companies, organizations and businesses large and small. And with each client, Erika’s approach is to delve into the organization’s specific, real-life needs, for this is how to most effectively understand its culture and identify its strengths and vulnerabilities. Armed with this and other information, she then crafts the precise, customized Leadership Solution to achieve success, whether it’s for an individual, a division, or an entire organization.

Erika’s rapport with her clients stems in large measure from her having gained her own leadership successes working at several large organizations, including Riverside Methodist Hospital (part of the OhioHealth Corporation) and Bath & Body Works (a division of L Brands).
