Become a Better Leader Today!   (Available January 2018)

The 5-Step Process to Becoming a Better Leader

What is billed as leadership development today is usually focused on leadership as a skill when it actually is a process that must be prescribed and practiced every day. It is the same way professional athletes worldwide have followed their prescribed training regimen to improve their already exceptional abilities.

Added to this is the confusing advice on what is needed to be a good leader, when all that is really needed is for the leader to be them self. The one-size-fits-all approach to leadership development usually offered as leadership development doesn’t consider an individual’s personality and capabilities. You can’t learn ‘skill x’ one day and expect to be a better leader the next. True leadership growth requires ongoing development and feedback.

Professional athletes, who are the top 1% of the top 1%, receive ongoing training and development with coaches throughout their careers. These coaches are seasoned or retired professionals charged with helping them improve their already exceptional skills by providing a constant program of evaluation, development and improvement. If the best athletes in the world can have personalized ongoing development, why can’t our leaders?

The Path to Professional Leadership is a 5-step, personalized, leadership development program based on an individual’s innate qualities and strengths. It includes the results of interviews with executives from business, education, government, healthcare and law enforcement as well relating to the athletic training processes of professional sports champions. It is designed as a continually improving process to help leaders develop a personalized leadership vision and philosophy for utilization in their daily leadership routine and creates better leaders by embracing the most often overlooked steps that research indicates are essential to better leadership development.

The Professional Leadership Process™ is:

  • Unique because it is personalized to the individual’s innate qualities and strengths.
  • Proven because it is supported by years of scientific research and personal interviews.
  • Comprehensive because once learned, the process is adaptable to almost any leadership situation.
