Helping companies develop tomorrow's leaders.
Leader & Organizational Development for the 21st century
How quickly could you fill a critical position with one of your own?
"Bench Strength" refers to your organization's ability to immediately fill a critical position with a talented, internal candidate instead of having to hire from outside.
Imagine someone in a key position at your company tells you they are leaving. Immediately. Or worse, you have to let them go.
What would happen if it were several people? Could you survive? What would you do?
Too often, people in these key positions leave for a better opportunity.
Then it begins. Frantically searching, endless interviewing, and desperately hoping you find somebody competent and a good fit.
But what if it didn't have to be this way?
Imagine if you already had developed the competencies and skills in your high-performing employees. And now, you had a pool of talented & trained people ready to step-up. How much easier would life be?
But where do you even begin? And why are you be left to figure it out on your own? It's unfair to expect you to put together something like this from the ground up!
What You Get By Working With Me
Peace of mind knowing that your employees are getting the training, education, and experiential coaching that allows them to become stronger leaders in preparation for taking on future roles in your company.
Ensure depth at each position that directly impacts goals & performance
The best way to gain confidence in anything is by practicing the right things while an expert instructor provides coaching and feedback. Leading others is no different. In order to get better, you need a leadership instructor and coach who is removed from the day-to-day stuff and can see your blind spots. And once you start practicing like this, you'll become more confident in who you are and your abilities. And so will everyone around you!
Build a culture of collaboration while developing your talent pool
Success has everything to do with teamwork and little to do with talent or technology. Every organization succeeds or fails based on how well its people work together. Period. And building a great team isn't hard. It requires a plan, a commitment to that plan, and consistency & accountability. You can have a championship caliber team and we can help you get there.
Make things happen & get stuff done
Both leaders and organizations are ultimately judged by the outcomes they achieve. It's no secret that "winning cures a lot of ills." So why would leave success to chance? Drive the train, accomplish your goals, and start succeeding, regardless of the circumstances.
All You Have To Do is A.C.T.
1. Assess the Need
Get a clear picture with a Leadership Activity Gap (LAG) test.
Not knowing the capabilities and strengths of key people is like playing blindfolded.
Get a report showing you the area(s) and skill(s) in need of development.
2. Create the Plan
Create a training program that aligns with your company's goals.
The only thing worse than training on skills people don't need is doing nothing at all.
Align developmental experiences with organizational objectives.
3. Take the Training
Experience the benefits of merging training & coaching with a mentor.
Stop reacting to circumstances and getting caught flat-footed.
Develop your greatest competitive advantage - your people!
What People Are Saying About Working With Adam
"He has been, hands-down, one of my favorite leadership instructors to date. Approachable, knowledgable, empathetic and a wonderful communicator, Adam exceeded my expectations for the course and truly made a difference in my professional trajectory. I was sad that the experience ended, to be perfectly honest. I can't recommend him enough!"

Helping People Lead at Every Level
I know how it feels to be told "sink or swim" & have everything you've ever worked for put on the line.
I've been teaching, coaching, and mentoring leaders for over 20 years. In that time, I've helped people at every level of leadership develop their competencies, attributes, and skills and build their human capital to make their organization more effective & efficient.
Don't build from scratch. Build from experience!
Forget trying to read the latest book, listening to a hipster podcast, or sitting in a classroom learning theory. It doesn't work.
You don't have the time or expertise to build your own plan from scratch. That's why I built one for you!
I believe great leaders are developed, and access to that expertise shouldn't be a barrier for anyone. So I'm disrupting things.
I know it's frustrating trying to figure out how to lead at the next level without any experience. Skip the painful lessons.
I distilled the best leadership experiences & research and combined it into an effective training program. Compressed decades into days.
