Great leadership is not an accident and is achieved by design, not by default. It is possible for any individual, team or organization. No endeavor succeeds without great leaders. Dick is an expert at working with individuals, teams and organizations to build on their strengths and articulate and achieve their aspirations. The focus of his leadership development programs is always measuring and maximizing return on investment of time and money.
Leadership Assessments identify individual leadership style, preferences and strengths. They serve as the starting points for executive coaching engagements or management succession frameworks. After conducting an assessment, Dick compiles his insight and analysis into a written report and reviews it with the client. This written report serves as a critical building block in the articulation of a management succession or leadership development plan.
Dick’s leadership development programs start with the business imperatives of the team or organization. They focus on building on strengths and identifying and supplying what is missing so that the business achieves its objectives with maximum velocity. The intent is always to build a powerful future of success, happiness and gratitude.
