To Be An Effective Leader You Need
Knowledge of management and leadership principles
There is more information available today than any one person will ever be able to consume, much less sort through. We help our clients understand and focus on the CORE PRINCIPLES that create leadership success.
Emotional Intelligence (EQ)
J. Paul Getty once said, “It doesn’t make much difference how smart, how much knowledge or how much experience an executive possesses; if he is unable to achieve results through people, he is worthless as an executive.” The key to achieving results through other people is Emotional Intelligence. This is a game-changer.

CEO Wolar Industrial Inc.
We have tripled in our business, so our numbers are through the roof right now. I am no longer a technician in the business, I don't work in the business, I completely just work on the business.
Owner, Sterling Physical Therapy & Wellness
We've seen some really good results. We've grown upwards of 70%. I really believe that a lot of the things I've learned in the coaching program have helped us achieve those results.
Owner, Elevated Technologies
In one year of Glenn's coaching, I was up 50% growth. I don' know how I could be where I am today had I not been in the coaching. That's why I stayed.
Owner, Wall 2 Wall Insurance Services
I was surprised at the immediate benefits I received from the coaching. The increase in my productivity and income and a decrease in my stress level regarding work was a dramatic change. I enjoy having somebody I can share with in private about what's going on in the business. Glenn's not a business cheerleader, he's a business coach. So, he's not just there cheering us on, it's more. He's coaching. If he has to make me take a serious look at what we're doing, then that's what you need to do. Having someone outside of the business to talk to is a huge benefit.

Our Leadership Development Program (LDP) consists of a series of management training and coaching modules.
These modules can be delivered to small teams in 3 to 4-hour sessions, or they can be delivered in one-on-one coaching sessions. Each module includes useful content, group discussions (when presented in groups), and individual coaching. These modules may also be combined to create a one, two, or three-day retreat. These are ideal for a quarterly or annual retreat.
Every Business Needs a Leadership Pipeline
For a business to scale up and sustain a growth trajectory, it must have a system for leadership development. Inadequate leadership is a common barrier to growth for most businesses.
While it is certainly a common and acceptable strategy to bring leaders in from the outside, this is typically the most expensive approach. It is also difficult to find a qualified leader outside the company and one who blends in well with the company values and culture.
I always encourage executives to screen for cultural fit first, then assess the talent needed for the role. This approach ensures that you get the right people in the right seats. Unfortunately, many (if not most) people look for talent, make the hire, and then wonder why in 12 to 18 months, the person is not working well in the company.
A more realistic and efficient approach for most small to mid-sized businesses is to develop and raise leaders, who you know embody the culture you want to foster.
Giving them training and growth opportunities that align with their natural strengths and aptitudes is also an effective strategy for retaining your best people.
I am not saying you should never hire from the outside. Sometimes you need to! But if you have an intentional plan to “farm” leaders from within, you will build a more dynamic and sustainable company.
But how does one do this?
Our Leadership Development Coaching and Training equips the senior executive to implement a Leadership Pipeline that will ensure a continuous flow of leaders for the ongoing growth needs of the company.
Our Leadership Development Services are flexible to fit the needs of your company. They range from either weekly or bi-weekly coaching to monthly or quarterly training to a full-scale outsourced Leadership Development Department. We adapt to fit your needs and budget.
