Founder, CEO, Business Whisperer

Parissa Behnia

I founded Sixense to build on my previous career incarnations and enact my Sixense Empathy Model™ to serve the business leadership community. I work with C Suite and senior leaders when they are ready to level up and step into their powers to grow their businesses or to grow as leaders. Sometimes, being at the top can feel like you’re alone in a crowded room and my clients know I will work side by side with them to set and conquer goals that drive real results for them. I’m also a partner in 678 Partners, a firm that offers advisory services to Family Offices.

Prior to that I served as Vice President, Account Director at Wunderman DC, a relationship marketing agency. I’m recognized in the Chicago entrepreneurial community as a board member, an advisor and angel investor, with a soft spot for female founders but a love of creative minds above all else. I have taught entrepreneurship seminars and am a frequent speaker on topics such as strategy, leadership and entrepreneurship. I’m an active mentor and volunteer in cultural, civic, women’s, education and business organizations and have served in numerous service leadership and non-profit board positions.

I am a Certified Professional Coach, hold a BA from Northwestern University and a MBA from NYU’s Stern School of Business.

I’m ready to help your business grow. Are you?
