Learning, recognizing and knowing are not enough in business today…..leaders need to be able to apply their skills on the ground and in real time to make a meaningful impact!


Season #3: The Rhythm of Leadership

In Seasons 1 and 2, we focused mainly on the individual and how to acquire fundamental skills and then apply them in real time, situation by situation. So, entry points, altitude, sequencing, calling out unproductive behaviors…all are critical building blocks to get us to build a strong foundation.

In Season 3, we take our learning to a more MACRO level. We now look at the concept of RHYTHM and how team leaders and organizational leaders can use their energy and rhythm to achieve performance and productivity.

Rhythm…if you look up the definition: is a strong, repeated movement or sound, a systematic arrangement. It is a pattern. Great leaders have rhythm in the way they lead.
