Zbig was born to Polish parents in London. His first home was near Sherlock Holmes’ fictional residence on Baker Street. When he was one year old, he and his family immigrated to the US– he learned to walk on the ship coming over. Fluent in Polish, Zbig has remained connected to his community and was involved in Poland’s transition to a market economy in the 1990s. He is a devoted member of Rotary Club of Evanston Lighthouse. Zbig is an avid racquetball and tennis player and practices yoga to overcome an unfortunate lack of flexibility.
Zbig Skiba, President
President and founder Zbig Skiba is deeply committed to helping his clients achieve professional and personal growth through skills development, education, and coaching. In his first management role, Zbig struggled with soft skills and lacked the support he needed to improve them. That experience remains vivid—and drives his commitment to helping others. With over 25 years in IT, management, and coaching, he brings a breadth of industry knowledge and expertise to his work.
Zbig holds an MBA from Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Business, where he studied management policy, entrepreneurship, and international business. He earned his BS in Industrial Engineering from the University of Illinois at Chicago.

As a firm, we strongly believe in business as a force for good. Our logo’s three intersecting circles signify our consciousness and triple bottom line: People, Planet, and Profit.
