There are three key considerations (pillars) in Leader Development – leading SELF, leading OTHERS and leading the ORGANIZATION.
Leading SELF speaks to leadership traits, and centers on the concept that your development is up to you – and you can learn everyday through adversity, others/mentors, and hearing the unheard (i.e., solitude and reflection).
Leading OTHERS speaks to the development and practice of traditional leadership skills, such as team building, leading change, developing culture, motivating and teaching.
Leading the ORGANIZATION goes beyond leadership traits and skills and speaks to decisions regarding the big leadership levers – structure, systems, process, people and rewards.
Jan takes all three pillars into account to create unique leader development journeys that are customized to the specific goals, expectations, strengths, opportunities and competitive position of each leader and organization.
Senior leaders who wish to transform an organization must have the individual and collective leadership capability to engage the entire organization toward the behaviors and actions that will create and sustain the organizational performance journey from satisfactory, to excellence, to extraordinary.
Jan’s leader development programs are designed to help these leaders identify and assess the leadership levers that will foster collaboration and drive organizational results. Jan provides the foundational learning and mental modes that directly support the key elements of a successful organizational transformation.

Does your organization have unity of purpose, clear goals, and distribute power to allow people to make decisions that deliver industry-leading service to your customers?
How can you better connect employees and customers to foster adaptability as a distinct competitive advantage?
Do your processes stifle ingenuity, or create innovation and efficiency that energize your strategy and support the ability to scale?
