  • Build vertical team cohesion (chain-of-command) and lateral team cohesion (co-worker groups)
  • Energize organizations with fun, interactive conversations centered on transformational leadership topics
  • Develop in the learner a personal understanding of the processes and demands of leadership and provide the tools and tactics to realize full potential
  • Encourage thinking about the role of character and the moral/ethical component of leadership
  • Employ diagnostic instruments to help participants learn about themselves, their co-workers, subordinates, and leaders
  • Provide supporting processes to ensure the learning continues beyond the seminar, including leadership coaching, peer coaching, leadership development plans and guides for further learning about leadership.
