Leadership Development

We believe in leadership development that is relevant and easy to apply in your day-to-day context. Our facilitators will help you to pursue your “aha” moments, providing tools that work and that enable you to lead with confidence.

Leadership Fundamentals

Leadership can be exhilarating, empowering, challenging, and sometimes even frustrating. When leaders focus on the activities that give the greatest return, leadership can also be tremendously rewarding. Leadership Fundamentals helps leaders optimize their efforts and equips them with the core tools they need to lead with intention. Leaders leave the program with clarity on how to set up their team for success and drive better results.

Enhance the leadership development experience​

Add the LeadNOW 180° Assessment to the program. This assessment was designed to help leaders bring out the best in themselves and their team. It provides leaders with insight into two factors that are most critical for team performance: leadership styles and team conditions.

What participants are saying

The facilitators were exceptional. I was impressed by their knowledge and skills at making the information relevant and useful.

Great insights. I truly feel inspired to make some positive changes and this program gave me the tools and insight to do it.

Incredibly insightful. I had many ‘aha’ moments. The discussion about achievement, affiliation, and power was enlightening.

Coaching Skills for Managers

Leaders who know how to develop others, promote collaboration, and drive accountability consistently deliver strong team performance. At the heart of their success is a coach-like approach to leading. With thousands of hours of coaching under our belt, we are on a mission to transfer our coaching skills on to leaders. Coaching Skills for Managers takes the mystery out of coaching for development, focusing on skills that are easy to apply and that work.

Leaders gain practical skills for today’s workplace

As work environments continue to become more agile and cross-functional, leaders need a new approach to enable their teams to move fast and be strategic.

Encourage collaboration and co-creative problem-solving

Leaders learn how to listen to understand, make connections, and ask powerful questions to drive insight and clarity. This helps team members get a new perspective on the challenges they are facing and work together to develop solutions.

Foster commitment to action

Individual accountability is essential for strong team performance. Leaders learn how to create a supportive environment where team members actively contribute and take ownership over their work.

Deliver tough feedback with confidence

Leaders master a framework for handling tough performance conversations in a way that delivers the message clearly and establishes a productive path forward.

What participants are saying

This course has a great impact for me in my role. It has made me understand my listening blocks, what makes an effective coach, and various coaching models I can implement based on the scenario. The facilitator was a fantastic educator and the content was interesting and applicable. Well done!

Before, I was very directional, one-sided. Now it feels like one full team. It’s less rigid now, and we’re getting more input, getting a lot more from every meeting. Now I feel like I have 10 more legs.

Since attending, I’m doing a much better job holding back from always providing solutions – team members are telling me they feel more empowered in our discussions. I feel like our trust is growing – they are understanding that they are in the driver’s seat more.

Lead From Within

What participants are saying

I learned about my strengths and weaknesses, and how that interacts with others. I am able to be objective and I can mitigate what is coming up instead of getting caught up in a "storm".

I came in having some struggles with a couple of specific relationships and types of interactions. What I learned helped me reframe how to work with them differently. This is huge for me.

The biggest impact of the program was being more aware of how I come across to others. I am more prepared now when I go into meetings when I know that there are people who have different motivations and values than me.

What participants are saying

The energy and dynamics that evolved within the group were incredible, we had a trusting and comfortable environment, and everyone opened up to share their stories and learn. The facilitators were very inspiring, and I feel that they reshaped our minds. My mindset was shifted – I feel more confident, motivated, and empowered.

I feel like the magic is at my fingertips.

Really wonderful course full of great learning tools and resources. This pushed me to step out of my comfort zone and truly grasp the concept and objective. I am able to apply it in my job to make a difference.
