How Are We Different

We Change Attitudes, Behaviors and Habits

Why leadership?  Most definitions of leadership speak of it being an action of leading others.  While we agree, we believe leadership is having influence with others, influence because of who you are.  But leadership is first about leading yourself, being the example to others, and being a developer of others.  Being a leader is about getting results, for yourself and for the organizations or businesses you serve.  Our primary focus then is about helping people be better leaders in their own lives and for those they serve in leadership roles on teams, in organizations or in their businesses.

We are not a training company.  We coach and facilitate a change process to help you achieve greater results working with you over time to change thinking, to change attitudes, behaviors and habits through a solid learning and change process.  We work with you through either:

 

  • an individualized executive/personal coaching relationship

  • coaching of teams within organizations or businesses

  • facilitating strategic discussions/planning with your organizational leadership or,

  • through strengthening leadership capacity through facilitating our established leadership development programs for your organizations leadership and emerging leaders.

We are affiliated with LMI, Leadership Management International, a company that for over 50 years  has helped thousands of individuals, leaders, business owners and entrepreneurs make changes to keep competitive in an ever changing and challenging global economy.  Implementing our coaching methodology and facilitating LMI processes we help you produce the results you envision for you and your organization through a unique development process:

  • Goal setting and action planning
  • Facilitated group learning
  • Personal one-on-one coaching
  • Space Repetition of Learning
  •  Manageable time commitment
  • Multi-sensory learning
  • Measurable outcomes
  • Guaranteed results

"Action through purpose

creates powerful results."

The Total Person

So why the total person?  Although each of us may try to compartmentalize our lives into a work and non-work life in order to achieve some kind of "work-life balance", the fact of the matter is we really only have one life, so we need life balance.  Throughout our lives we have to fulfill many roles so the key to living happy, productive and fulfilled life is giving the right amount of time and more importantly the right amount of energy to each of the moments of our life.  Where and how we commit our energy and time, and the quality of ourselves that we bring to that commitment is centered on our own individual purpose, our mission, that is grounded in our values.  True, powerful results for our lives and for our organizations becomes possible when we are aligned with our values through our purpose that we each get to define for ourselves. 

Personal Success Framework

Our work on a personal leadership level centers around these six vital components of our lives, Family and Home, Financial and Career, Mental and Educational, Physical and Health, Social and Cultural, Spiritual and Ethical.

Through this discovery process, we help individuals build a customized Plan of Action for establishing priorities, setting goals and then acting on the behaviors that deliver the results in their lives that they desire.  As an organization, better results will no doubt be achieved when your people, acting through their purpose are aligned with your organizational mission.  Your whole organization will feel it, your customers will feel it.

In a truly empowered enterprise, everyone is a leader.

The Total Leader

There is no doubt the changing and evolving global business environment demands the need for effective leadership.  Regardless whether the business has an international or just a domestic presence, to become a truly empowered enterprise leaders must be developed and exist throughout the entire organization.  Leadership cannot just exist at the top, everyone in the organization must be positioned to lead.  It is only when people can lead themselves that they can genuinely be the truly creative and innovative to solve the problems and bring forth the best solutions for the business to achieve the highest level of performance.

The LMI Total Leader concept that we implement to coach and facilitate your people has two primary principles:

  • Leadership ability must be developed in every team member in the organization.  Leadership is not longer just a position or title, but rather a process that every person at every level must practice.

  • For development of leaders to be effective, it must be a complete, integrated, total leadership development process.  Truly effective leadership development is a continuous process of learning and building leadership capacity and capabilities.

The development process addresses four critical levels of leadership that an individual must master to become a Total Leader.  Engaging with you through a unique development process we help you and your people achieve that ultimate goal.
