John Lyle, Director of Research & Legal Affairs

John Lyle serves as Director of Research and Legal Affairs for Priority Thinking® and EthicsPoll™.

After joining the team as a researcher and consultant in 2005, John helped to develop many of our proprietary tools, and worked extensively with key clients in our corporate and university-level practices. At the same time, John also helped to found a private elementary and middle school, where he served as Headmaster for two years and still serves on the Board of Governors. While continuing with Priority Thinking part-time, John enrolled in law school in 2009 and thereafter clerked with the Twelfth Appellate District of the State of Ohio.

John’s experience as a researcher and consultant, headmaster and attorney – combined with his study of ancient and modern political philosophy – make him well suited to direct the research activities and legal affairs of our business while helping our clients to see the essential link between Priority Thinking and the flourishing of human relationships in all types of organizations.

John resides in Rochester, New York with his wife and five children. He holds a BA in Political Science (minor in Economics) from Ohio University, an MA in Political Science from Marquette University and a JD from University of Dayton School of Law. John is admitted to the practice of law in Ohio and New York.
