Leadership and Training Development

Leadership development is the focus of literally thousands of publications, professional workshops, and academic studies. But with infinite information available on how to be a successful leader, why is it that so few people ever master it? Simply put, the majority of leadership development training and education is based on prescriptive solutions, rather than introspective journeys!

Out of the hundreds or thousands of human behaviors, there are only a handful that can be directly tied to effective and even outstanding leadership.

Think of these competency areas as pieces of a jigsaw puzzle. Each piece works in combination with the others to reveal a fully integrated picture. By aspiring to improve our performance in all of these areas, we can improve our ability to lead well. Although leadership can be demonstrated without all ten competencies in play, we believe that true leadership excellence only emerges when every one of these areas is fully practiced.
