Passion for and interest in a development goal is key for an individual’s development success. By combining their personal passions with a clearer understanding of the organization’s needs, participants learn how to develop the Leadership Levers through a meaningful, personalized experience that will help them thrive and your organization succeed.



Six Critical Strengths

The six Leadership Levers are a small, highly predictive competency framework. Developing any one of the six Leadership Levers into a signature strength propels a leader’s effectiveness into the 72nd percentile of global leaders. Building significant strength across three of the capabilities catapults a leader into the 90th percentile for leadership effectiveness.


A unique component of the Leadership Levers: Building Critical Strengths experience is a self-assessment that identifies which Leadership Levers the participant finds most rewarding and energizing. Participants discover the connection between personal passions and competence.

Development Experience

Working with learning partners, participants synthesize various personal insights including a targeted organizational needs interview, to select a development focus and create a personal action plan.

Six Critical Capabilities


Research shows that personal passion and high competence are linked. Furthermore, for development to be successful, energy and passion for goals is critical.
