Our Approach to Leadership Development

(Click on any item for details)

►  A Multi-Faceted Approach◄

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.

►  An Integrated Approach◄

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.

►  A Values-Based Approach◄

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.

Managers Have Never Faced This Challenge Before

It's no exaggeration to say that management faces an unprecedented situation. Never in human history has a workforce dispersed and worked independently for a year, then come back together again to work under one roof.

Yet, that very scene is playing out in thousands upon thousands of businesses at present. Significantly, large numbers of people are coming back together wounded. The shutdown has inflicted psychological and emotional wounds on people which still linger. Mike's latest podcast looks at what these lingering wounds present by way of challenges to managers.

In Praise of Long View Leadership

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.
