Our leadership premise:

The 21st century is unfolding at an unprecedented pace with exponential complexity.  Mastering the craft of leadership in the new millennium demands an understanding of both enduring leadership principles and innovative, people-first leadership practices for delivery of superior performance. We are dedicated to an evolved leadership approach that is:

  • Tough-minded on standards AND tender-hearted with people
  • Devoted to the spirited pursuit of high performance
  • Focused on continuous improvement
  • Committed to creating value for all stakeholders
  • Vigilant about winning in the workplace to win in the marketplace
  • Steeped in the spirit of “How Can I Help?”
  • Humble, brave, and authentic

What Is Leadership?

Leadership is the art and science of influencing others in a specific direction. While this definition can apply to hierarchies, it is not limited to a hierarchical view of the world of work; it applies to collaborative work as well. Today, leadership is about influencing people in any direction – up, down, or sideways.

There are ten key building blocks to “leadership that works” as advanced in Doug Conant’s WSJ bestselling book, THE BLUEPRINT.  Every leader we’ve observed or studied who produced sustainable results – no matter how wildly different their temperaments, beliefs, or skill sets – had some mixture of these elements in their approach. Although there are an infinite number of pillars that contribute to effective leadership, if you take care of these ten, everything else takes care of itself.

The 10 foundational tenets of “leadership that works”

  1. High Performance
  2. Abundance
  3. Inspire Trust
  4. Purpose
  5. Courage
  6. Integrity
  7. Grow or Die Mindset
  8. Humility
  9. How Can I Help?
  10. Have Fun

The journey is challenging and the demands are formidable, but when leaders are equipped with the tools for continuously improving their leadership profile in an authentic way — the level of fulfillment can be profound and abiding. It is our promise to help you live leadership that works in the here-and-now and to empower you to influence people with honor.
