About Us

The LEAD Institute's Mission is to help our clients make their organizations more productive and better places in which to work through high quality consulting and training services.

For more than 40 years The LEAD Institute has been providing consulting and training with a personal and professional service approach to ensure lasting benefits for everyone in the organization or work unit. Our high involvement methods, not quick fixes or off-the-shelf packages, develop effective solutions for situationally unique and complex problems.

Our areas of expertise are planned change, culture transformation, team building, self-managing work teams, customer service enhancement, executive/manager/supervisor leadership development and creating motivation performance systems for quality improvement.

Our capabilities and services focus on leadership, team and organizational development. Our methods are client focused, not canned. We provide individual & team consulting, group training, employee and management workshops. Our training and consulting services result in improved productivity- enhanced quality delivery, customer service and decreased costs. As a result of improvements in these performance areas, morale, job satisfaction and motivation also improve.

The LEAD Institute works closely with our clients to develop the processes for planned and managed change. These consultations may be short-term interventions such as team building or leadership transitions. Or the consultations may involve complex long-term developmental processes such as transitions to self-managing work teams and total quality improvement. We can help you both determine how to best manage your transitions and deliver the services that let you meet your goals.

We create employee and leadership development workshops as stand-alone programs for human resource development and integrate our workshops into our client's planned change efforts. Our most comprehensive workshops encompass jump starting teams, leadership style development, culture transformation, problem solving and managing change.
