Leadership & Team Development

The biggest constraint holding organizations back is rarely finance, markets, operations, or technology. It's leadership. Leadership is the key to unlocking everything else, but we can't assume having a title means there is skill. Leadership is also a team sport. We work with your leaders' diverse personalities to help them leverage their strengths as a united team. From behind the scenes coaching to full fledged interventions, we get your team communicating and collaborating.


Strengthen Individual Leaders

As a leader stepping into a new role, with grit and determination you can get there on your own. But why do it the hard way? We accelerate your time to results by shortening your learning curve and sharing the patterns we've gained from working with thousands of leaders in different contexts. Don't reinvent that wheel. Quickly find your leadership brand and put the rest of the energy into reinventing your organization or your industry.

Enhance Leadership Team Cohesion

Why aren't All-Star Teams typically the best performing teams? It's the chemistry among the players that counts even more than talent. We call it the Leadership Operating System: those norms about how we communicate, conflict, and make decisions. Like organizational health medics, we treat the trauma then look to rebuild the whole. We focus on practical strategies that are applied to solve real problems to make new norms stick.

Executive Marriage Counseling

No offense, but let's call it like it is. Sometimes the problem IS the people. Smart, strong willed folks can lock horns in mortal battle and unintentionally wreak havoc in an organization. If we choose to stay on the team, and spend more time with our work partners than we might even with our spouses, then we need to roll up our sleeves and deal with those underlying role and goal conflicts.

Interactive Leadership Training Programs

Is your organization ready for an entire swath of leaders to get on the same page with their methods and mindsets? We've conducted hundreds of custom multi-day leadership programs across dozens of industries from top executives to emerging leaders. Our in person and online experiences provide practical frameworks that create common language and expectations for leaders. You get to pick the specific modules most relevant to the skills needed to achieve your goals.

We start with listening to the breadth of the leaders you want to include and the depth of their potential you want to unleash. Based on your needs, we recommend a blend of individual coaching, team development, targeted workshops, or surgical consulting. We have access to all major assessments and can create unique instruments just for your crew.
