An Open Letter

Dear business owners, entrepreneurs & CEOs:

We are writing this letter to share the following: 

We believe within every organization, team and individual there exists the potential for extraordinary leaps of progress.

So how do you get there?

Begin with people. People lead, people negotiate, and people drive the performance of teams. Confident people tend to explore more of their potential. They are open to input from others, they seek to improve, and they make LEAP’s resulting in increased effectiveness, wiser decision-making, clearer communication, greater cohesiveness, wiser deals, and improved sales.

The objective of any investment you make in your people ought to focus on helping them become more confident: more confident in their current areas of expertise, and more confident in new areas that require new skills. Confidence can and should be a key measurement criteria for any investment in training and development.

But confidence is not taught. It’s discovered.

We guide our clients on expeditions to confidence: confidence in personal and organizational leadership, negotiation (deal-making and dispute resolution), and healthy team performance. When you engage with us, you will quickly discover that we are not a quick-fix seminar, or workshop. We are a process over time that delivers increased confidence, no matter the level of experience of the participant. We’ve been at this a while now (over 22 years), and we see everyday, what this increase in confidence can do, and how to achieve it.

We want to propose three specific challenges:

1) Look for situations where increased confidence could pay off within your organization. Do this intentionally.

2) Observe behaviours. See if you can spot sufficient confidence or a lack of. It comes with some clear indicators such as mastery of processes & skills related to the area or situation in question (e.g.: leadership, negotiation, technical analysis, communication, financial or conflict management), emotional balance, healthy degrees of self-reflection & awareness, and the poise to be able to perform well under pressure.

3) Ask yourself: what might be possible with increased confidence in these situations ?

Share some of your discoveries with us.

How might the situations have turned out differently if more confidence was at play? Do the people involved realize what might be possible?
