Leadership Development

We help leaders develop. We have facilitated leadership development with personnel from EXXON, ARCO, British Petroleum, Alyeska Pipeline Service Company, Alaskan Clean Seas, Ship Escort and Recovery Vessel Service, Anchorage School District, Alaska State Department of Natural Resources, Alaska State Prison System, Alaska State Forestry Division, Alaska State Department of Fish and Game and many more.

We do this through leadership workshops and retreats, one-on-one coaching, establishment of mentoring programs, development of 360 feedback programs, instituting corporate wide behavioral styles awareness (labeling behavior not people), developing early recognition of high potentials and then creating formal programs for their development, establishing programs that proactively help identify and develop minority and female candidates, and more.

What is Leadership?
We recognize that leadership is very different from management...and that both are critical. We manage programs, but lead people. Management is about stasis, finding a "way" to do something well and then doing it that way every time. Managers try to get things done right. Leadership is about making sure that what we are doing is what we should be doing. Leaders try to get the right things done.

We believe that there are "born leaders", but that every person has the capability to develop his or her leadership ability to the fullest.

Elements we believe are essential for great leadership:

  • Courage
  • Integrity
  • Empathy
  • Focus
  • Thick Skin

Our Leadership Seminars/Retreats focus on these things:

  • What is leadership? An interactive lecture, experiential learning exercises, learning from our own behavior and observations from others, drawing from our own data base, creating our model of leadership...subject to modification.
  • Watching a leader in action -- Bring the popcorn. This is a night at the movies. But bring a notepad, too.
  • Personal and Professional Development--Gaining knowledge about self from variety of resources (360 feedback, one-on-one coaching, peer feedback, results of interviews with staff, behavioral instrumentation)
  • Group Projects -- With groups of two to many.
  • Experiential Exercises -- We learn by doing and then examining how we did it.
  • Creation of an executive development plan.
