Developing Leadership Talent

Our custom leadership development programs inspire, empower, and support leaders to build on their leadership strengths.  We will help you discover and expand your personal behavior and leadership styles to bring out the best in each employee and to nurture their desire for growth. 

A leader's primary role is to influence and inspire others to achieve a common vision. Recent discoveries in neuroscience show common approaches to managing others are outdated. We need to shift our way of leading to focus on helping and encouraging others to think better about solutions, not telling them what they're doing wrong. Our dynamic, highly interactive programs are designed to create "aha" moments inspiring leaders to look at their employees in a whole new way. Leaders return to the workplace to discover a wealth of talent in their employees that they never knew existed.

“Change is disturbing when done to us, exhilarating when done by us.”
— Rosabeth Moss Kanter

Why keep growing as a leader? Leadership is the #1 factor in employee performance and the #1 reason people leave their jobs. In our multi-day leadership programs, leaders learn how to get the most out of their employees by building trusting relationships, improving communication, and involving key stakeholders in decision-making.  By growing as a leader, you allow your employees to grow. Good leadership helps you retain their talent and gain their support so you can do what’s right for your customers and your organization.

We focus our development efforts on five leadership competency areas:

  • Instilling a Growth Mindset in Yourself and Others
  • Building Self-Directed Teams 
  • Focus on Solutions and Results 
  • Encouraging Innovation
  • Empowering Others to Act

We build people-centered leaders in every type of organization from Fortune 500 manufacturing and engineering companies to non-profits working on key social issues. How can we help you grow and retain your best and brightest leaders?
