Individual Leadership Development

Grow Your Leadership Pipeline With Proven, Highly Personal Leadership Development

Your people are your organization’s future. Prepare them for what’s next with individual leadership development tailored to their needs.

You already know that to secure your organization’s future, your leadership pipeline must be sustainable. So to retain and strengthen your pool of future leaders, commit to developing talent at every level of your organization.

In our decades of research and hands-on experience, we’ve found that people are more committed and engaged when they have a clear career path, ample professional and personal leadership development opportunities, and the support they need to succeed. Another must? An individual leadership development plan. Personalized leadership development is simply a necessity.

Learning to lead is an intensely personal experience — and one that shifts over time. Our research-based individual leadership development programs are tailored to address the challenges faced and competencies needed most at each leader level and customized to the experience of the individual participant.

We can provide the right learning at the right time for all your talent — from individual contributors, new managers, and frontline leaders through senior executives. Our individual leadership development plans and programs can meet your people where they are, and take your organization where it needs to go.

Our Transformational, Highly Personal Leadership Development Programs

A job promotion doesn’t automatically create a new leader — it creates the opportunity to become one. 

Frontline, first-level, and new managers are the largest population of leaders at most organizations, the critical people responsible for day-to-day operations. Equip them to start strong.

We offer individual leadership development plans and programs for those who are new to managing people and projects, or to prepare talent with leadership potential. Our new manager courses and solutions are carefully designed to offer scalable ways to address the specific challenges faced at this leader level.

Leading from the middle isn’t about a position; it’s about meeting the demands from above and needs of those below. It’s a tricky balance.

We pioneered the original Leadership Development Program (LDP)®, a highly personal leadership development program aimed at exactly these managers leading from the middle — and it’s now the most widely recognized and longest-running program of its kind in the world.

Our middle manager training programs are focused on developing the skills these high-potential employees need to become more effective as they lead your organization from the middle.

Do those leading your organization have the strategic perspectives, mindsets, and skillsets needed to succeed? 

Leading from the top comes with a different set of demands, and how your executives handle these challenges can have a swift and defining impact on your organization’s success.

Our prestigious, top-ranked executive leadership programs make sure your senior leaders are harnessing their full potential to lead business units, departments, functions, or the entire organization and propel your business forward. Equip them with what’s needed to steer your organization into the future.

Our dedicated leadership experts will partner with your organization to provide individualized leadership development for your high-potential employees or key talent populations. We offer an array of highly individualized leadership programs, which can be customized to develop the leadership competencies most needed for your organization’s unique context and culture. Incorporate personalized feedback from 360 assessments and sustain the learning with leadership coaching to maximize impact. Align leadership development with your business strategy and goals to motivate and retain your top talent and secure your organization’s future leadership pipeline.  

What Our Clients Are Saying

We measure success by lives touched and impact made. That’s why the organizations we work with and the leaders we transform consistently tell us the same thing: their experience with us isn’t just a game-changer, it’s a life-changer. Our highly individualized personal leadership development plans, programs, and solutions have helped turn thousands of employees into engaged, committed, successful leaders — who, in turn, transform their organizations and communities.

But don’t just take our word for it — take theirs.

“With such a diverse group from multiple time zones and different countries, we wanted to steer away from a ‘one size fits all’ approach to leadership development. The virtual experience was the best solution for our needs.”
