• When leaders manage when they need to lead or lead when they need to manage
  • When leaders lack vision and fail to ignite passions (other than their own)
  • When leaders fail to connect with those they lead and fail to inspire
  • When leaders fail to revolve with the times
  • When leaders develop a culture of fear and frustration limiting the organization as a whole

This behavior ends up affecting employee engagement, innovation, creativity, absenteeism, turn-over and the organizations reputation suffers. It doesn't have to be this way.

Imaginative Leadership Principles

The foundations of Imaginative Leadership lay the groundwork for visionary, strategic leadership and establish grounding principles of successful leadership for the long-term. 

What we can imagine we can create a plan for today. We establish milestones to celebrate the journey.

Ingition Leadership Principles

The two elements of Igniting principles & passion are:

  1. Establishing the principles of positive motivation and the development of foundational capabilities and skills doctrine.
  2. Engaging purpose and passion for rapid leadership progression. We learn to inspire other's passions too.

Immersive Leadership Principles

The concept of Immersion is to embrace deep learning in key focus areas that will guide your development as a visionary leader.

To immerse includes developing new or enhancing key leadership capabilities and behaviors that are essential tenets of all successful leaders and for those you lead.

Inspirational Leadership Principles

The foundations of Imagine, Ignite, Immerse, and inspire are woven throughout the program. To inspire means to motivate and enable more collaborative, productive, and inspired teams.  As an inspirational leader you become self-actualized, whilst also activating visionary leadership principles that guide other leaders to actualize their visions.


Why Lead Forward?

This program is customizable to suit the needs of individual leaders and small cohesive learning groups. We do this by curating the content of each learning program to the needs of the groups we steward together. Content is combined with both experiential and experimental learning modes. We bring together managers and leaders with similar needs and backgrounds so we can more fully delve into challenges and desired outcomes participants are actively engaged with in their leadership roles.

The primary purpose of developing these curated groups is to organize leadership content that is immediately relevant and valuable. Additionally, group stewardship allows for collective knowledge to be harnessed within sessions and workshops. In these classes we foster constructive deliberation, problem-solving, creative ideas, and analytical examination to produce thought provoking discussions and immediately actionable ideas and solutions.
