Why choose Lead For Today?
Have you ever attended a training program and then gone right back to doing things in the same way you always have? How about attending training, and feeling so overwhelmed with models and information, that you just didn’t know how, or have the time, to apply it? Do you have so much going on in your life and your work that taking time to focus on your own development is difficult to prioritize?
Research shows that learning to lead takes years. Like anything we want to do well, we need deliberate practice to become our best; building and sustaining our “leadership muscle” is no exception. Our programs are built to not only introduce you to new concepts in leadership, but also to help support you in exercising your leadership bests regularly, so that with quick applications over time, leading with intent becomes habit.
Why choose the Lead For Today approach? We know from neuroscience that our brains have plasticity, meaning they can change and reorganize as we learn new things and build new patterns. We know from self-regulation theory that getting really good at something requires a cyclical triangle of planning, acting, and reflecting. We want to help you align your brain with the intentions and patterns that will yield you your best results as a leader. This is the same process professional athletes use, even when they are already at the top of their game.
What does that look like?
We focus on the planning, thinking, and intention-setting that will help you lead your best.
We give you specific actions, behaviors, techniques, and skills to help you succeed as a leader in the world today.
We encourage self-reflective practices and provide tools to assist you in this process. Reflection then informs your future plans and actions.
We believe that the best leaders are those who are called to lead in service of others. While some may be born leaders, anyone can become a leader, and all leaders achieve their best through deliberate practice.
The world needs the best leaders to tackle unprecedented challenges. Lead For Today can help prepare you to do just that, with quick, meaningful learning tools. We apply our experience developing all levels of leaders to delivering the tools, training, and techniques you need to build lasting, successful, and relevant leadership practices.
