Over the past 100 years, leadership has been conceptualized in 100s of ways. We combed the academic literature as well as mainstream organizational competency models to identify a framework of leadership that both stood the test of time and was supported by evidence as effective.  As a result, we developed the 6PLeadership framework.

Using the 6PLeadership framework, we utilize existing evidence to build assessments and support structures for leader development. We implement cutting-edge program evaluation internally as well as offer leader development evaluation as a service. We utilize data collected through our programs for research publications and presentations. We offer three forms of leadership assessment – self-assessment, 360 Assessment, and an assessment center – with the goal of increasing leaders’ awareness of their leadership strengths, styles, and behaviors. Each assessment is accompanied by a detailed feedback report structured around 6PLeadership that the leader can use as a foundation for establishing a leader self-development plan.

Finally, we provide ongoing development support to help leaders reach their goals through a series of Leadership as…Workshops and one-on-one coaching sessions. The suite of services we offer are not only integrated around 6PLeadership but also fit into our process model of leader self-development, which is the ultimate responsibility of the leader doing the developing. However, LeAD can help accelerate development by increasing self-awareness, helping the leader establish a leader self-development plan, and supporting the leader’s development.
