Executive Leadership


Executive Leadership Training for Enhanced Performance and Organizational Results


As a CEO or business owner, you are responsible for the overall performance and "results" achieved by your organization. Translating your vision into actions performed by others requires self-awareness and an understanding of how human beings and your organization operate as a whole. In other words, the corporate vision needs to be shared and embraced by the organization's workforce. Through executive leadership training, with L.E.A.P.S. you will acquire a deep level of self-awareness as it relates to your ability to effect meaningful changes in employees, leaders, managers and your organization for enhancing performance and productivity.

L.E.A.P.S. Researched-based Approach to Executive Training and Coaching

Typical Abstract

A review of the literature on coaching reveals that very little empirical research has focused on the executive coaching methods used by consultants with managers and leaders in organizations. Within the framework of a 17-dimensional model of systems and psychodynamic theory, the author provides an overview of a conceptual approach to coaching activities that incorporates 5 identifiable components plus an emphasis on goal setting, intervention methods, and hypothesized factors in negative consulting outcomes. A definition of executive coaching is offered as a way of summarizing the literature and differentiating these consulting activities from others for the purpose of improving conceptual clarity and encouraging specific research on the concepts, methods, and outcomes of such activities.

Based on the abstract cited above, one can immediately recognize that a research-driven approach to Executive training and Coaching provides considerable advantages with regard to organizational integration. In other words, sound research eliminates much the "guess work" often associated with both personal and organizational development. Organizational change will necessitate personal change. In other words, organizational improvement by its very nature involves personal improvement. Consequently, it begins at the top with a focus on self-awareness and the fundamentals of how human beings and organizations operate. Executive training includes a powerful framework for understanding organizational performance and productivity, and the development of intervention strategies aimed at improving two fundamental types of company results that are critical for operational success:



  • Objective results - productivity, effectiveness, market share, profitability
  • Subjective results -corporate culture, climate ,trust, human relations
The L.E.A.P.S. Results-oriented Approach

An implementation strategy is a step-by-step procedure for taking advantage of the existing characteristics of the planning culture in such a way as to enhance the likelihood of the planning being accepted and used.  The process of introducing a planning procedure into an organization is a subtle one of taking advantage of an established planning culture and, in turn, of reinforcing that culture.  Planning cannot be introduced into an organization that is not ready to accept it.  An all at once introduction of a comprehensive planning process is almost inevitably doomed.

The implementation of the strategy involves four fundamental steps that could be called the management process:
  1. Planning,
  2. Programming,
  3. Budgeting, and
  4. Designing measurement and reward systems.

Planning is the process of deciding in advance on some future course of action.  It involves formulating goals and objectives, and then determining the steps necessary to attain them.  At the corpus of the developmental process is the willingness to learn "new" and innovative approaches to executive training and organizational development. Some of the key fundamentals can be extrapolated to include:

  • Creating shared understanding of a "shared commitment" to the company's vision, mission and core values.
  • Incorporating a team leadership philosophy and culture that engenders organizational effectiveness and efficiency
