We have been helping leaders become increasingly effective since November 1981, when we hosted our first open enrollment seminar program, a four and a half day residential program.
Now, after one hundred plus in person programs, and six virtual on-zoom programs, we can sincerely say, “we’ve learned a lot!”, about leadership in the real world, about the evolution of leadership over four decades, teaching leadership in personally insightful ways, and about helping people apply their leadership learning’s back on the job where it counts.
Moreover, we’ve gone to the job, with many of our leadership-learners, helping to build their teams, align their organizations, and update their company cultures. How exhilarating, mind and skill stretching, exciting, rewarding, and fun! Learning with our clients, learning from our clients, facilitating the learning of our clients, and in some instances, passing down the learning’s to literally, their next generation of leaders.
Come help us to share what we’ve learned and to continue the journey. It’s great fun!

FLA facilitator-coaches have on average over twenty-five years of experience helping industry leaders understand and successfully address business, organization, and people goals and issues. They are deep in expertise and grounded in the practical realities of positively impacting organizations and businesses.
Whether working with a CEO or first-level manager, they understand the issues at hand, skillfully bring the appropriate tools and conceptual frameworks to bear, and facilitate breakthrough strategies that achieve high performance.
If our programs are not among the best leadership courses you’ve ever attended, we will refund your tuition!
Beginning with a clear, consensus team vision, clear success metrics, an understanding of the role of the team and it’s rules of engagement, over a series of 6-7 dedicated meetings (typically off site), we build the trust, the team relationships, and the team norms and processes for high functioning leadership teams to get their organizations to the next level of success.
While not limited to it, we model our approach after Patrick Lencioni’s Five Dysfunctions of a Team, focusing on one dysfunction per off site, and building upon each previous off site(s), with the goal being the daily application of the key principles and practices of the model on the job. It’s this focus on daily application (walking the talk) that makes our approach both unique and highly productive. We also coach individual members along the way (to be both good team mates as well as domain leaders of their own subunits), build peer coaching (radical candor) relationships as we go, as well as individual and collective leadership competencies to effectively lead the business, the organizational units, and the middle management company-wide.
Executive team building is typically conducted within 12 – 18 months, with the budget and schedule depending upon the scope of the project, the size and geography of the various management groups, and the urgency of the project (budgets typically vary between fifty and one hundred thousand U.S., travel and purchase of third party copyrighted materials are additional).
