The ABC’s Of Leadership Success
Whether leading a multi-national, a private family-owned business or coaching a National Championship college football program, identifying and evaluating high potential performers is more science than it is art. Over thirty years of data have led to the ABC model of Elegant Leadership, and delivering it in its simplest form: A-B-C Abilty, Balance and Control.
From elevating an already successful enterprise, turning around a failing business or fine-tuning your business, the questions are the same:
- Do I have the Ability, Balance and Control to perform at an Elite level?
- Is there a combination of Inherent Characteristics and Learned Skills?
- Is there a Desire for the responsibilities, challenges and opportunities required by senior-level roles?
- Do I have the emotional and cogent Commitment, effort and intent to persevere when times get tough?
The ABC model encompasses the physical, mental, emotional aspects of every leader and athlete’s potential. Some will succeed on a small level, some will advance to experience regional or national success, some global success, and some will excel and continue to progress at each of these levels. The difference among all these characteristics is extremely small underpinning one small element,
“How do they handle the defining moment under stress, and How that result shapes future behaviors.”

Our elegant Leaders Dashboard delivers a simple, practical, powerful and graceful solution.
As a leader, you’re challenged with numerous goals, priorities and initiatives in addition to people and communication disconnects.

- Bake into your culture how important and committed leadership is
If you’re going to assemble a team that will do whatever it takes in the moment during the good times and more importantly when, not if, the proverbial stuff hits the fan, then stop settling for present circumstance, break through from where you are today to where you want to be.

Leadership Summit Series
Delivering leadership solutions to today’s pressing problems needs to be agile and adaptive to produce significant results and optimize your time and investment. Leaders and managers are fond of the maxim, “Employees are our most important asset.” Yet beneath the rhetoric, too many executives still regard, and manage, employees as costs. Companies that fail to invest in employees jeopardize their own success and even survival.
We’ve developed a robust set of frameworks based upon a methodology that has been proven in-the-field from small-to-mid-sized organizations, solo- and entrepreneurial environments and through global enterprises delivering significant bottom-line contributions of investments in human capital management.
A theme throughout the Leadership Summit Series is the precision incorporated from today’s Special Operation Forces. Navy SEAL philosophies and values provide the foundation for continually achieving ambitious objectives. As you read this paragraph, dozens of squads are operating somewhere around the world. Despite all the hardships they encounter from BUD/S, training evolutions and spin ups for a mission, they are bound to their brothers, their command and ultimately the mission – sometimes they die.
How can a 12-man squad accomplish so much in a short window in the still of the night impacting our National security, yet your 12-member team cannot meet a deadline let alone work fluidly towards a goal?
SEAL platoons employ proven leadership tactics and team models aimed at making effective decisions and conducting surgical operations – there’s no place to hide! The Leadership Summit Series is the result of decades of work emphasizing true leadership and teamwork precision. Event durations range from 13 weeks to 12 months. Stop accepting mediocrity and provide a foundation for continually achieving ambitious business objectives today! Download your copy of the .Leadership Summit Series

“I’m currently entering the last week of a 7 week Elegant Leader program with Scott and I must say that I’ve taken many leadership courses over the years and this is the first one that I’m truly sad is ending. Scott is, well, elegant. He’s also humble, down to earth and speaks in a language that means something to me, both professionally and personally.
Through his leadership I’ve learned so much about myself and things I was doing that were holding me back. After attending this course, I feel much calmer and secure about my role, my successes and my shortcomings. Thank you Scott for sharing your gift and for anyone on a journey of self-fulfillment and/or improvement, I don’t think you can go wrong here.” – Anita K, Lead System AnalystPlease follow and like us:

The importance of self-introspection on how to improve my behaviors to help others was the biggest impact so far. Since completing all of the modules, my group has realized a 12% increase in throughput and a scrap reduction by 28%. I’ve been able to apply real solutions that are giving me sustainable results. The Academy should be required for everyone in leadership!Please follow and like us:

Scott is a remarkable coach, advisor and person. He embodies everything that you would want in a coach/advisor for yourself, your leadership team, and your managers. He stands for nothing short of the highest levels of excellence and performance, which he has demonstrated in his own life and career. Whether it is his track record as a leader in business or the ways he contributes to his community, Scott has the substance and the internal grounding to keep you motivated and inspired while also developing creative new ways to solve your most pressing challenges. The way he shows up in life equals the substance he has with many best-practice toolkits and methodologies.
His range is amazing, from helping leaders become even better to helping teams perform better and helping you shape the culture of your organization in ways that directly correlate to results. I work with many coaches and put Scott in the top of the top because of who he is and his ability to get remarkable, measurable results. I can’t recommend him highly enough.Please follow and like us:
“A great leader encompasses compassion and courage of your job and your employees. If I’m going to lead them, then I must learn to learn to lead by correcting what’s not working and employ what does work under stress. His comment, ‘we all revert to the level of behaviors we’ve mastered under stress,’ really resonated with me. I think I’m a good leader when things are going well. What I’ve learned is when multiple priorities, deadlines and issues above and below me mount, then I do revert back to less than elegant leadership. The Academy gives me the skills I need to be my best!”Please follow and like us:
“Let me start with the Leaders Dashboard – the low-tech approach is giving me high-tech and high-touch results! I’m able to visually reinforce what I must stop, start, maintain and elevate as a leader during times of pressure and stress. Having the courage to stay focused on the principles Scott delivers has proven invaluable already. The Academy gives me a logical sequence to build my leadership from where it is to where is must go. My 4 Group Leaders have all improved throughput 105% to the point we’ve expanded capacity 13%.

I highly recommend the Academy to anyone charged with shaping their organization.”Please follow and like us:
“Scott’s ability to relate and to speak specifically to how our business operates and how to adapt his style to our people in the Academy has been nothing short of amazing. He and his team did their homework to truly understand how we operate daily. The Academy gave me and my team great insights into how we can make changes that impact our performance and our lives. Our operations metric improvements are nothing short of amazing – FPY went from 94% to 99.8%, employee morale went from abysmal and worried about union incursions to over 54% engaged to now 73% engaged, turnover has dramatically reduced, and we went from losing $1M monthly for 9 months to now a $1.4M surplus.
