They are designed to help high-performing managers develop what our research has identified as the small set of leadership skills closely correlated with leadership success. Each Booster is one day and we offer them both individually or in combination for a holistic learning experience.

The program works best for participants who actively pursue both personal and professional growth objectives. Participants will walk away with:

  • Fluency in results-oriented managerial and leadership skills
  • Deeper self-awareness and clarity of purpose
  • Mastery in managing one’s own energy and the reactions of others
  • Accountability for personal development
  • Ability to lead others through influence and inspiration
