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,

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
