This is our flagship management training program, presented as part of our leadership development arm, Leadership: The Enduring Edge.
How effective you are as a manager depends upon a blend of planning and organizing skills, interpersonal competency and mindset–your habits of thought and fundamental assumptions that determine the decisions you make and how you behave on, a daily basis.
A growing body of research reveals that the surest route to a sustainable edge is a workforce of highly “engaged” employees. These are individuals willing to contribute discretionary effort and creativity–choosing to go above and beyond expectations–to further their organization’s success.
This customized two-day experience engages your senior managers in discussions, exercises, simulations, and various reflections that deepen insight into their “inner operating systems”, as reflected in their TLCP results.
The goal of The Authentic Leader is to help your team collectively foster and sustain a leadership culture that promotes strong employee engagement, continual innovation and superior results.
This is one of two flagship programs that we present through our leadership development initiative, Leadership: The Enduring Edge.

Employees who move from “strongly uncommitted” to “strongly committed” demonstrate a 20-percentile improvement in performance level.
71% of companies with above average employee commitment generated above average corporate performance relative to their industry. 62% of companies with below average employee commitment experienced below average corporate results.
The manager is both a focal point (i.e. a source) for employee commitment and an enabler of commitment (through his/her impact on the job itself, the organizational culture, and the quality of teamwork).
