Leaders Behaving Badly
What skills would you like to improve to get maximum results?

Guess what . . . it is not always the employee with the problem. If anyone wants to know whether a leader is being effective, one way would be to take a look at what is going on around a particular manager/leader. Stop and take a moment to observe managers and employees in their work environment. Conduct manager and employee assimilations. Look how leaders are relating (or not) to their employees in areas of development, motivation, and knowledge sharing. Listen to the stories going on around the organization about particular managers and leaders. Do these stories support the values the organization espouses to represent to stockholders, the community, and customers? If the answer is no, then perhaps leader development in the form of coaching for leaders and training is necessary to ensure there is consistency between what the organization says it values and leader behavior.

Our shared vision at Step Up To Success! is to become the consulting practice leaders think of first when they need leadership & team development and organizational effectiveness consulting.

The way we meet our vision is by providing the highest level of exemplary support to our clients with extraordinary care as we assess, train, and coach.

We are an organization of practical academics and life long learners. As successful facilitators, we must first accept, love, and believe in ourselves and then in our clients' ability to go beyond what even they thought possible.

Our philosophy is to facilitate learning in a way that is practical, useful, meaningful, and understandable. At Step Up To Success! our only goal is to help you reach yours.
