The ROI of Systemized Leadership Development can be Measured in Millions.
Let’s prepare your upcoming leaders to take the reins.
For Companies on an Exponential Growth Trajectory
Adopt a Perfect-Fit Hiring Process
Develop & Retain A-Players
Groom Next Gen Leaders
Cultivate a High-Performance Culture
Build a Team that Can Handle Record-Breaking Growth
Don’t leave it up to management to groom your future executive talent.
(They may not know how, and they definitely don’t have time.)
When A-Players get promoted to management, the assumption is that their manager or supervisor will mentor them to become a leader. As we know, this doesn’t always happen like clockwork. The underdeveloped leader then promotes his or her team members into leadership positions, who also remain undeveloped.
Multi-generational leadership deficits begin to stack up, and you’re left with a very shaky foundation.
Great employees don’t become good leaders by accident.
Develop a pipeline of talent that’s ready for promotion to management, Director, and VP-level positions.
- Get underdeveloped managers and leaders up to speed fast

Our Secret Sauce is Behavior Change.
HOW WE GET YOUR LEADERS TO CHANGE
Our Leadership Academies are proven to get your leaders taking action differently and producing organization-wide change that drives the bottom line.
1. COMPETENCY DEVELOPMENT, NOT JUST SKILL DEVELOPMENT
Our proprietary Leadership Competency Model identifies 6 leadership domains and 5 essential competencies within each. Leaders progress through the domains from Leading Self to Leading from a Distance, demonstrating effectiveness in each competency along the way. That’s how you know they’re changing.
The behavioral anchors included key actions that specify the component behaviors that define the unique behaviors that lead to success. These behaviors provided a better guide for evaluation and development.
2. A CUSTOMIZED LEARNING EXPERIENCE FOR EACH PARTICIPANT
Not every organization requires all the aspects of leadership.
Not every role requires every competency. We assess the needs of your organization, its individual roles, and its unique employees to establish the required competencies and the specific gaps that need to be addressed.
Each employee is coached to their required competencies and their skill gaps. This produces a leadership team who’s aware of the expectations they need to meet and aware of their own areas that require improvement.
3. AN IMPLEMENTATION APPROACH BASED ON BEHAVIOR ANCHORS
Competencies are demonstrated with successful behaviors, habits, and outcomes. Our leadership development approach includes specific action plans to demonstrate module-specific behavior anchors and measurable business outcomes. Each participant is held accountable to change. The reason they’re successful is because the expectation of change is explicit and successful outcomes are well-defined.

Separate Leadership Academies for Directors & Above
Executive Leadership requires a private learning environment.
We have two academies—one for management and one for directors & up.
Our Leadership Academy for early and middle managers.
Our Leadership Academy for Directors, VPs, and C-Suite.
How Leadership Academies Work
Tailored. Virtual. No work for you.
Send us a list of employees who will participate.
We can strategize about which employees are best suited to participate in the Leadership Academies. Then, simply send over a list of names and email addresses for those employees.
We onboard your employees into the appropriate Leadership Academy and meet twice per month.
The Leadership Academies are typically either 7 or 12 months long, depending on your business requirements. Employees block 90 minutes on their calendar every two weeks, where we meet in a group setting to learn, discuss, and review that month’s module. They also receive access to our private membership site, where they can review trainings in our video library to supplement their development.
Watch your leaders produce business results, according to their self-created action plan.
It’s important that leaders learn to identify their own gaps and create action plans to close them. We teach them how. We also report the progress of your participants on a regular basis. You’ll be thrilled with the organizational change you see taking place as participants implement what they learn.
