What it is

Total Leadership is a proven method for producing sustainable change in all parts of life that can be learned and practiced by individuals, groups, or organizations.

Who it's for

Total Leadership can work for people at any organizational level, in any career stage. If you are succeeding in one aspect of life while under-performing in others, or failing to capture value from one part of life and bring it to bear in others, or living with too much conflict among different roles in life, then TL is for you. Contact us.

What you do

You examine what and who matter most to you, then you design and implement experiments to produce "four-way wins": results that are meaningful not only for your work, or family, or community, or self (mind, body, and spirit), but for all these seemingly disparate domains. Contact us.

What you gain

Total Leadership will help you perform better according to the standards of the most important people in your life, feel better in all domains, and have greater harmony among the domains because you will have more resources at your disposal to fit the parts of your life together. You'll achieve more four-way wins because you'll be a more inspired, effective leader. Contact us.
