What We Provide Is Unique.
- A unique point-of-view about
We assume that people who have risen to positions of leadership
already have a leadership style that works. For such people,
becoming more effective means making refinements in their existing
leadership style and making it more distinctive, not throwing
it out and replacing it with something new.
- A credible, comprehensive and
practical guide to the field of leadership that serves to:
- Help busy leaders find ideas, insights, and tools that
build into their existing leadership style to make them
- Give them the confidence to ignore advice and recommendations
that don't fit them.
- A comprehensive framework for
understanding the entire field of leadership theory and advice
Our approach is grounded in a framework that integrates and
draws upon the enormous body of research and writing on leadership.
We share this framework, supplemented by a comprehensive but
highly selective annotated bibliography. Find out more here.
- Six ways of learning from leadership
theory and advice
From our deep knowledge of the literature on leadership we have
identified six powerful perspectives that distill essential
questions and alternative approaches. Each of these perspectives
serves as the basis for self-assessments that enable participants
to identify options for enhancing their own leadership styles
and making choices that feel right for them. Find out more here.
- Support for ongoing leadership
We support participants' ongoing leadership development by providing
teleconferences, follow-up coaching, an ezine with practical
leadership advice and case studies, and occasional Perspectives
on Leadership. All of these are designed to support participants
in incorporating their improvement insights from our leadership
programs into their leadership style. Find out more here.
Our approach is based on rigorous research, driven by our passion
for understanding and improving human performance. Grady has a doctorate from Harvard University and over
25 years of work experience in the field.
