Being a Leader and The Effective Exercise of Leadership

Leadership is not what you know, but who you are.

Today’s widespread training, coaching, literature, and advice on leadership for the most part provides descriptions of traits, styles, characteristics, theories, techniques, information, and strategies on how to lead. Descriptions do not leave a person being a leader and acting effectively in real life situations.

We promise that you will leave the Course being a leader and exercising leadership effectively as your natural self-expression, in any situation and no matter the circumstances.

Who is this Course for?

This Course is designed for professionals who are committed to increase their own effectiveness, empower others, and produce extraordinary results. The Course will challenge your pre-existing notions, ideas and assumptions about leadership, yourself, others, your organization, and most of all what is possible.

Background Information on the Course

Organizations are currently spending 70 billion dollars a year in leadership development, with projected increases of over 50% in the next decade. Despite this investment, employer and employee confidence in leadership is at an all-time low. Numerous studies show that approximately 80% of Americans believe we are facing a leadership crisis in business, government, education and healthcare.

Perhaps the current support structure for leaders—the training, coaching, education and literature—is simply ineffective.

We are facing a world of increasing demand for performance, fierce competition, accelerating change, and uncertainty about the future. The key is powerful leadership.

Being a Leader and the Effective Exercise of Leadership is a breakthrough in the science and practice of leadership. The Course was developed in collaboration with professors from Harvard and other business schools, philosophers, consultants, coaches and thinkers from a variety of disciplines. We have delivered Being a Leader and the Effective Exercise of Leadership in many organizations as well as in top universities and institutions around the world.

During and after the Course, participants tell us of significantly improved performance, with productivity increases from 100 – 500%. They speak of experiencing a new level of confidence, clarity and power to fulfill on what is most important to them.
