These unique programs provide an unparalleled combination of knowledge, coaching, and skill building tools to ensure that individuals perform at their utmost. Participants quickly implement key concepts and strategies and walk away with confidence as well as a new respect for themselves and others.
Susan familiarizes herself with the company, and identifies specific needs and objectives. With appropriate Modules, a Leadership Institute is tailored to the organization.
Once needs and objectives are identified, a group meeting is set up. Up to 15 people gather for the first phase that lasts for 4.5 days. The first phase is held off-site as it is conducive to both learning and relaxation – essential to the success of the program. Preplanning materials are given to attendees in advance. These tools and Assessments assist in the learning process and aids people in putting ideas into action.
Special prominence is placed on each person’s unique style and personal profile. This allows participants to leave with a vision for success and an action plan to make positive changes in their work and personal lives.
Success is maintained through follow-up conference calls, which Susan provides on a monthly or quarterly basis. Six months to a year after the initial experience, the group reconvenes for a two to four day retreat – this allows for review and new skill building. The result is a renewed commitment to ongoing growth and accomplishment.

"The Leadership Institute has had a tremendous impact on our
organization. Our managers now have a clear picture of what an
effective leader looks like and acts like. They are able to define a
vision and mission for their team that sets everyone out on the same
path. When they leave the Institute, they can be measured and
monitored. Everyday I hear a story about a success that one of our
leaders has had that can be attributed back to skills they learned and
adopted at the Institute. The Institute has become our secret weapon in
our development of a strong team." - Storage
