Generate breakthroughs in your leaders to produce breakthroughs in your organization.

After 40 years of developing leaders, we’ve come to a fundamental conclusion – sustained breakthroughs in organizational performance are impossible without fundamental breakthroughs in leadership mindset and behavior.
Conscious leadership is essential.

We provide a unique – often life-changing –
approach to executive and leadership development.

Increasing your leaders’ self-mastery will radically improve their performance and contribution.

Self-mastery is mindfulness on steroids. It teaches leaders how to become aware of, manage and transform self-limiting mindsets and behavior. It develops their ability to manage their mind and emotions and operate in the “flow” of optimal performance, even under stress.

We can unleash your leader’s full potential to contribute by developing their self-mastery.

Developing your leaders “vertically” will increase their ability to innovate and solve strategic challenges.

Vertical development expands leaders’ world-views. It enables them to see beyond limiting mindsets to discover bigger perspectives. They see inter-dependencies and distant and delayed impacts that generate solutions. They become more inclusive and innovative in their thinking and Way of Being. They become able to solve previously unsolvable strategic challenges.

We have been pioneering vertical leadership development for nearly 40 years, and can help your leaders grow in this profound way.

Developing “co-creative” leadership skills will up-level performance in your leaders, teams and workforce.

Co-creating means working together across hierarchical or functional boundaries to produce optimal results for your organization and customers. Co-creative leaders and teams develop a quality of trust, cooperation, communication, support and alignment that is far beyond the norm. Co-creating is a way of working together that brings out the best in people and produces the best results possible.

We can help develop a co-creative way of being, working, and relating in your leaders and teams that will deliver their best.

WEBINAR How Visionary Leaders Build Trust in Their Teams

Building trust in an organization takes more than hanging a motivational poster on a wall or having a leader who says all the “right” things. Effective, lasting trust can only be authentically developed; it’s never the result of technique. This webinar explores how to embed trust into teams and organizational culture. We identify the critical skills a visionary leader uses to take a group of individuals who are out for their own agendas and develop them into a high performing team that is in sync and breaking through to new levels of excellence.
