You can expect to have AMAZING EXPERIENCES when you partner with the SD LEADERSHIP INSTITUTE. Our work together is about YOU; not about us. We are extremely passionate about and committed to you and/or your team’s development as leaders. When you partner with us, you will see our passion and commitment demonstrated through the amazing experiences we provide during your leadership-learning journey.

We have a team of professionals who embody our E.P.I.C. values

EXCELLENCE – the level of quality in our delivery
PASSION – the energy and enthusiasm we bring in partnering with you
INTEGRITY – the choice we make to do the right thing and be sincere

We are exceptionally passionate about our partnership with you. We have a strong commitment to helping you transform into the best version of yourself. In our work together, we create an opportunity for you to gain increased self-awareness and new insights; we inspire you to discover your passion, take courageous steps and try new approaches in your leadership journey; we encourage you to make a commitment to learning and stay the course, even when it gets tough.

You can expect to achieve remarkable results through our partnership. What do we mean by remarkable results? We believe remarkable results are results worth remarking (talking) about with others. Through our work together, you will begin moving the needle towards your desired goal and you will know it through how you feel about your progress and/or what others say about the results you achieve.

How do we ensure remarkable results? First, we partner with successful people who want to achieve even greater success. We take the extra time to assess your challenge(s) as well as your commitment and readiness to make a shift. If we believe you are ready, we will get started; however, if we do not believe you have the commitment or readiness to achieve your desired goal, we will be honest with you and ask you to return when you are truly ready. Remember, our work together is about YOU – achieving remarkable results. In order for you to achieve remarkable results, you must be committed and ready.

Whether your goal is to build the leadership acumen of a senior leadership team or more individual to your own personal leadership journey, we are prepared to help you get the results you desire.

We have helped leaders gain greater self-awareness, build their executive presence, develop a more intentional personal leadership brand, become more self-confident, improve their communication or presentation skills, become a better listener, build stronger relationships with their peers, direct reports or those they report to, become more empathetic, manage their stress and or emotions in professional settings, build a more collaborative team, become a person of influence, and so on.

We have helped leadership teams gain increased alignment and improved communication through rebuilding/repairing trust and learning to appreciate one another’s strengths and differences. Increased alignment and improved communication leads to stronger interpersonal relationships, collaboration and cooperation in achieving team results at a faster pace.

You can expect to partner with extraordinary professionals when you put your trust in the SD LEADERSHIP INSTITUTE. Our team is comprised of passionate and talented professionals who are experienced, well-educated, certified and/or ICF credentialed as executive coaches, highly skilled at training facilitation, and/or certified to administer a variety of individual or team assessment instruments.

Our team understands the challenges you and your organization face on a daily basis in the areas of communication, alignment, teamwork, change management, and developing and retaining leadership talent for the future.

While every individual and organization is unique and complex, we believe our team’s vast hands-on experience across a wide-variety of industries, organization sizes, lifecycles and types (privately-held, publically-traded, family-owned, government, and non-profit), provides the expertise our clients expect.
