Delivery Means

The course will be delivered through intensive, facilitated, experiential, adult learning processes focused on participants’ actual leadership and unit-management challenges. Class size will range from 9 to 12 people, as we have determined that we can deliver the highest quality by restricting enrollment. Since we usually utilize two instructors, participant to instructor ratio doesn’t exceed 7.5 to 1.


Our seminar is customized to the personal and business needs of the participant. Each person will leave with a plan aligned with the functioning of his or her unit of responsibility. Initial practical alignment is achieved via the results of our pre-seminar Optimizer75™.

Course Offerings

Monthly sessions are held in Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina or customized to client locale (as a Team JumpStart®). We are also an organizational development consultancy and can further customize additional follow up sessions for systematic reinforcement, as needed, and help your organization address specific organizational issues or problems.


  • Optimizer75™: proprietary 360˚ multi-participant feedback
  • Manager Compass™: a preworkshop tool for structuring communication and alignment between the participant and his/her direct supervisor; performance criteria (for successful execution of the manager’s current situation) are defined and assessed, and relevant learning goals are established. This in depth process allows the participant to focus his or her learning goals in such a way that workshop experiences are tied into real business objectives.
  • Personality inventories and supporting learning materials
  • Participant’s leadership-in-unit development plan path forward
  • Course workbook
