Frontline Leadership Solutions - Strategic Planning & Accountability

Inuksuk’s are monuments made of unworked stones that are used by the Inuit. The traditional meaning of the Inuksuk is “ Someone was here” or “You are on the right path.” Leadership development is a journey that we are all on together. People have gone before us, we can learn from them.


What is a leader?

We are passionate about our belief that leaders are developed, and we also believe that you do not have to have “direct reports” to be a leader. Leadership development is an on-going process that begins when you join an organization, well before the time a person becomes a supervisor. We all lead by example, the question is what type of example are we setting? Putting the right building blocks in place to grow vibrant leaders within your organization is where great organizations excel. Every day.

While the “deep water development” technique for leadership development may have been what some leaders have experienced in their career, we do not believe that leadership development needs to be so haphazard, nor risk inherent. Our leadership development process is based on a five-step model with a built-in process for continuous feedback and improvement. It starts with setting the right direction and expectations, continues with hiring the right people for now and for the future, and then develops individuals and teams by providing them with the appropriate skills and competencies to set them up for success. The five steps in the process are then regularly evaluated for continuous improvement using a feedback loop on all five aspects of the leadership pie. If you would like to learn more about how this process can help your organization or to get a snapshot of where your organization is today and how to move it to where you want to be tomorrow, please contact us.

“The most dangerous leadership myth is that leaders are born - that there is a genetic factor to leadership. This myth asserts that people simply either have certain charismatic qualities or not. That's nonsense; in fact, the opposite is true. Leaders are made rather than born.”
