The Art of Leading, Coaching, & Influencing Others ™

A Revolutionary Way To Educate Your Leaders

You’ve heard for years that people don’t leave companies, they leave leaders. I disagree – people leave ineffective managers, they rarely leave effective leaders.

The number one cause … ineffective leadership delivered by ineffective leaders who don’t understand the difference between being a glorified individual contributor and a true leader.

Leaders are defined as people who influence others to do or to be their best. Which means anyone can effectively lead others, regardless of whether or not anyone reports to them. They just need to understand what it means to lead and possess the skills to influence others, 1-on-1, 1-on-10 or 1-on-100 situations

Our programs include a number of paths, the foundation is our  7-month Leadership Development that integrates up to 6 different learning methods.

“Joe worked extensively with my leadership team over a period of 7 months as part of The Art of Leading, Coaching and Influencing Others ™  Program.  Throughout the program, I could see the transformation of the team as the skills were internalized and then utilized within the broader organization. The growth and maturing of the organization was absolutely transformational. Joe has an excellent ability to work with individuals to uncover their strengths, opportunities for improvement, and what may be holding them back in their professional development. “
