We’ve worked for three decades with organizations that have invested in leadership development despite not being able to measure its impact on the business.

We apply a specific framework that provides a visual snapshot of leadership. This snapshot serves as a feedback mechanism of leadership performance over time and as a definitive road map for ongoing improvement.

We measure both leadership performance and business outcomes prior to the engagement and then at milestones throughout the engagement until desired leadership performance and desired business results attain targeted levels.

Our objective in working with executive teams is two-fold:
