"Uniquely realizing potential - developing leaders through experiential learning"

  What they say

Developing leaders in your organization
not bad bosses

Being the boss does not equate with being a leader. Being a "Boss" is about authority, title, or position, but being a "leader" is about your behaviour.

During an economic downturn the need for "leaders" in your organization is greater than ever, there's no room for "bad bosses". 43% of employees already rate their own line managers as either ineffective or highly ineffective, it's clear that we are faced with a potentially devastating leadership shortage that can have serious implications for your company.

Russell Stratton, Champion of Great Leadership at Bluegem Learning, has made it his mission to develop great Leaders in the organizations he works with. His primary expertise is working with Leaders wanting to optimize their team's performance including those transitioning into a new Leadership position.

The changing face of modern leadership
We'd like to share with you a piece written by Dan Buchner, vice-president of the Peter Lougheed Leadership Institute at the Banff Centre, for the Globe and Mail Report on Business section.

When we think of leadership in such times, we immediately look toward the dynamic individual leader who can guide us through the volatility. But leadership today has shifted toward a shared responsibility of key actors in the play, a process shared by passionate and motivated individuals within a social system. There will always be strong individual voices, but success will come from interactions among groups of leaders developing innovative approaches by looking at existing ideas in new and creative ways.

The Secrets of Successful Onboarding
