Unlike other small firms which provide only one set of leadership development tools, the LeaderPerfect® approach has been multi-faceted for over twenty years.
That is, we offer organizations like yours a diverse menu of leadership development services. Included on this menu are executive coaching, mentoring, leadership and management training, business consulting, team-building, corporate retreats, and strategic facilitation.
This catalog of options permits us to create unique combinations of services which best meet your specific needs. It's not unusual for clients to draw on three or four of these services in the course of a single engagement.
By offering a broad array of leadership development tools, we are able to integrate our services around a consistent set of concepts and themes which you want to emphasize. As a result, the various components of your leadership development program reinforce one another.
This level of integration is difficult to achieve if you rely on one firm for executive coaching, another for training, and still another for team-building.
We attune our leadership development programs to the values which you want to shape your corporate culture. Values, we believe, are more important than vision in sustaining long-term success.
At Strategic Leadership Development International, we are ourselves a values-driven company. And we deliver our services in a way which honors both your values and ours.
Where clients need greater clarity on their values, vision, and mission — or perhaps to define them for the first time — our engagement can include modules to guide lead them through this discovery process.
… the founder and managing principal of Strategic Leadership Development International, has personally coached or mentored more than 700 executives and entrepreneurs and has trained thousands more on four continents. He is also an award-winning author in the field of leadership.
As an executive coach, executive mentor, keynote speaker, and organizational consultant, Dr. Mike draws on a lifetime of personal leadership experience.
His far-ranging career has included service as a university dean, a college president, a Navy captain, the CIO of a national intelligence organization, the CEO of an international non-profit, a Congressional candidate, and the senior minister for dynamic urban congregations.

The Future of Virtual Training
If you play a decision-making role in leadership and management training, check out my latest podcast.
It raises the question of what form training will take as we emerge from the pandemic. After more than a year of virtual trainings, will live, in-person training make a comeback? Or will budget-conscious companies stick with the more cost-effective virtual approach?
I share my thoughts on that in my latest podcast, both from the perspective of both a virtual instructor and a virtual student.

There were many amazing moments in Baylor University's decisive win in the NCAA Basketball Championship game. Perhaps most amazing of all was the long view leadership shown by their coach.
Without his 18-year focus on the long view, what Baylor accomplished would have been impossible.
