The goal of leadership development is shaping and changing leaders’ behaviors to empower organizations to grow and prosper while better serving customers and stakeholders. By that standard, two-thirds of organizations are failing. Brandon Hall Group*
Research shows that efforts to develop organizational leaders continue to miss the mark. Stewart Leadership, experts in leadership development with 45+ collective years of management and leadership consulting and coaching, have changed that with LEAD NOW! — a system that effectively prepares the leaders of today and tomorrow.
- Develops the whole leader through a comprehensive leadership system.
- Personalizes the leadership path through 21 modules served buffet style.
- Prepares both seasoned and emerging leaders.
- Keeps employees engaged over time with inspiring stories, power tips, and knowledge application activities.
This is accomplished through a library of short, powerful videos and accompanying materials that provide instruction and insights on 21 key leadership dimensions in 4 quadrants: Create Purpose, Deliver Excellence, Develop Self and Others, and Lead Change.
A Dimension Survey establishes what dimensions the learner should focus on first and personalizes the leadership development path.
The result? You are ensured a pipeline of capable leaders. What's more, your organization retains and attracts employees who seek ongoing opportunities for meaningful professional development and career advancement—be they executives and managers or staff employees.

These four points of view become the two axes that encompass the four areas of great leadership. Each of these four areas/quadrants is supported by 4-7 key leadership dimensions which provide the basis for in-depth leadership development action planning.
CREATE PURPOSE A leader must be responsible for defining vision and strategy which involves:
DELIVER EXCELLENCE A leader must be responsible for delivering operational excellence and translating strategy into day-to-day execution which involves:
Focusing on Results
DEVELOP SELF & OTHERS A leader must value learning for self and others which involves:
LEAD CHANGE A leader must create and champion change that benefits the organization which involves:
