Our Unique Approach to Customizing Leadership Development Solutions

A Learning Journey Built for Your Organization

Drawing on our deep well of world-class leadership research, insights, and hard-won expertise, we’re committed to helping your leaders at all levels navigate today’s biggest challenges.

We help create scalable but personalized results that matter to your organization — and to the world. How do we do this? We:

  1. Ask smart questions to uncover what’s most important to you and the future of your organization, connecting your strategy to business results and designing leadership development solutions tailored to your unique culture and business challenges.
  2. Help your people achieve transformational change in their leadership effectiveness with a combination of innovative tools, assessments, experiential training, and coaching.
  3. Measure impact at critical points along the way to ensure we are on track to meet — and exceed — your goals.

It’s Not About Process — It’s About Partnership.

Our leadership development method is applied to the design of every custom leadership training solution — transforming lives and creating measurable, sustained impact for your organization. We believe:

  • The journey is iterative, not linear. A great partner embraces the journey, rather than seeking a quick fix. We bring extensive industry expertise and will champion your perspective as your needs evolve — delivering a continual path of growth for your organization.
  • The best solutions are co-created. Our reputation is built on successful implementation and research. Although we have great proven designs, our creation starts with you, first and foremost. We know you want a problem-solving partner — not a preset solution.
  • The ideal relationship is “learning alongside,” not “lecturing from up front.” We’re committed to teaming with practitioners who will remain flexible, continually learning and adjusting with you — not just telling you the best option.

Let Us Craft a Custom Learning Journey for Your Organization

Leadership development is more effective and sustainable when it’s part of a transformational learning journey, rather than built around a series of learning events. Like any journey, a learning journey is about moving from one place to another — a process where individuals build skills and capability through a series of related learning experiences. We tailor programs to your organization’s specific needs by combining select leadership topic modules into a complete customized leadership development journey for your team.

Our process starts with gleaning insights about your organization’s unique context and culture through our discovery services for designing leadership development. From there, we can craft a custom leadership training solution for your organization using a combination of our innovative tools, proven programs, industry-leading assessments, experiential learning, and world-class coaching services — all based on our 50 years of pioneering leadership research and award-winning solutions — and measure the results and ROI of your investment.
