Thor’s passion is to make lasting change for the better in the world by increasing the effectiveness and influence of senior leaders, mission-critical teams, and transformative organizations around the world with a local focus for global impact.

His specialties are global leadership and team effectiveness; he works to enhance communication, cross-cultural competency, and efficacy around the world. Thor has worked with numerous firms ranging from C-suite executives of global 500 companies to innovative start-ups at early stages of development and across multiple sectors, including finance, tech, energy, retail, logistics, healthcare, entertainment, manufacturing, education, and a range of government agencies.

Legvold employs evidence-based, scientifically validated tools and methods to design and deliver tailored programs that lead to real and lasting improvements in behaviors and performance with measurable ROI. He works collaboratively with his clients to establish ownership, relevance, and knowledge to keep the focus on the issues at hand while maintaining objectivity. This allows difficult and uncomfortable questions to be raised, ensures issues stay solved, and ensures responsibility remains where it belongs. He helps create clarity from complexity, direction and purpose from ambiguity, and encourages clients to bring out the best in themselves, their team, and colleagues, while offering support and relevant examples when necessary.
