A Latin word meaning to uncover, lay bare, make clear, or reveal.

The Aperio is a place for leadership truths to be revealed. It is a space dedicated to people who believe in the value of leadership and the effort necessary to become a great leader. It is a home for those who agree that much about leadership can be uncovered if we are willing to explore its depths.

It is the vocational passion of The Aperio founder, Tim Spiker, that the truths about leadership be revealed to as many people as possible. And that those truths would positively impact organizations, individuals, and families.

Better Leaders.
Better Results.
Better Lives.


What We Do (the super short version)

We help individuals and organizations do one thing: lead better. The net result is both better bottom line results and more fulfilling lives. We do this by helping leaders and organizations understand the hidden truths within leadership.

A Little Bit More About What We Do

There are hundreds of ways to improve results in the short term. Thousands of consultants, authors, coaches, and communicators promise to share leadership techniques to get you there. If you’re looking for tips and tricks to get leadership results, you should probably stop reading. The Aperio will be a waste of your time. But if you’re a leader who wants something more, keep reading. The Aperio helps leaders who want to…

  • look within themselves for both the problems and solutions of leadership.

  • reach their leadership potential even if doing so is difficult.

  • investigate the inner workings of leadership that few talk about.

  • lead effectively over the long haul rather than merely trying to hit the next quarter’s numbers.

  • create faster paths to leadership effectiveness for those they are developing.

  • achieve great bottom line results while creating off-balance-sheet value in followers’ lives.

If that’s you, congratulations — you’ve come to the right place. Welcome to The Aperio.

This isn’t about putting ping pong tables in your break room (though I would enjoy that) or holding hands at the start of each day (I would not enjoy that). This is about results-producing, deep-dive leadership development. This is about leveraging the hidden truths within leadership that almost no one is talking about. This is about producing exceptional, long-term results that hit both your organization’s bottom line and the kitchen table discussions of those you lead.

You might find yourself asking, “Self, how do they do this?” Well, I’m glad you asked. The Aperio helps leaders maximize their potential through talksexperiences and journeys. Click over and give them a read.

On behalf of myself and the wise professionals who passionately work along side me, welcome. I’m glad you’re here. Let us know how we can help you.
