Learn the latest thinking in leadership. Don't be left behind!

Unlike other leadership training that focus on only a few qualities or aspects of leadership, this is a comprehensive program that trains you in all of the vital areas that can dramatically improve your ability to lead others and give you an edge in today's business world. 

The training focuses on six areas that we call the ENERGY Model. Your ability to lead effectively begins with your ability to provide the energy needed for people and the organization to succeed. The ENERGY Model has everything you need to do just that. Each component of the ENERGY Model addresses a key area for today's leader. You will learn about Environment, Nimble, Encouragement, Rapport, Growth and Yield. This is a unified model for getting the most from the people you lead, and creating a high performance organization. 

Module 1 Environment - In this module we will discuss the culture of the department, division, or company. You will learn what other factors play a part in the culture such as clothing, furniture, and other symbols that represent the culture in your company.

Relationships allow better execution of your objectives because teams work together to solve problems and develop better solutions.

And organizational growth is about building a foundation for the long-term existence of the company.
