We define leadership as follows:
Leadership is the process by which the best in us becomes the best from us.
We believe the following about leadership:
- Yes, leadership is a process, not a person or even a list of certain personal attributes.
- Anyone who engages in the process is exercising leadership.
- Leadership is character-based. Otherwise, it is nothing but manipulation.
- Leadership can be learned, but like any learning endeavor, some have more potential than others.
Our leadership curriculum is entitled Leadership: The Riverstone Way. In our leadership development we teach at three levels:
- Leading Self
- Leading Others
- Leading the Organization
We work one-on-one with key leaders in your organization to help them become more effective via personal development, improved skills, and providing a sounding board to work through real-world situations. We do not do typical coaching. Our approach is frank, direct and pragmatic. We coach mid-level managers through CEOs.
In each, we use our Leadership Model as the basis for our curriculum. We invite you see a complete overview of our process entitled Leadership: The Riverstone Way by clicking here. (This presentation is not yet finished, but will be in the Papers and Presentations section of the site).
