It’s one thing to supervise a group of people. It’s another to lead a high-performing team. Are your leaders in the first category, the second category, or somewhere in between?
As baseball legend Babe Ruth put it, “You may have the greatest bunch of individual stars in the world, but if they don’t play together, the club won’t be worth a dime.”
In a business context, playing together is the minimum entry requirement. To gain the competitive advantage, your leaders must perform at a higher level. They must lead with purpose and inspire others to do the same. A shared leadership framework unlocks the magic.

- Elevate your leaders to a shared understanding of practical and impactful leadership mindset and skills
- Enable leaders to be more engaged and effective
- Empower leaders to raise the performance of others
- Ensure that individual team member purpose is aligned with team purpose, which is aligned with organizational purpose
In short, your leaders will quickly develop leadership skills, individually and collectively as a team, to take your company where it needs to go.

Studies show that leadership training is most effective when combined with individual coaching. Our many years of experience demonstrates the effectiveness of this approach. Coaching is the best way to identify and overcome obstacles standing in the way of success.
The Foundational Purposeful Leadership Development Program includes one-on-one, customized coaching sessions between training sessions to reinforce learnings and integrate them into the participants’ daily work.
John Quincy Adams once said, “If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more and become more, you are a leader.” This is the essence of our program. Purposeful leadership is the moral choice principled leaders make to achieve something greater than themselves and the companies that they lead.
