You can drive change… or be run over by it.

Times have changed. Norms are over. The pandemic, social upheaval, and political unrest...there’s no way to know it all.  There's no guidebook for the unprecedented.

There’s no playbook for the unfamiliar

And as far as significantly improving performance? Creating greater value for your clients and in your business year over year? The world is changing too fast to just build on what you know from the past.

Leaders have to constantly learn in the moment, and for the moment, to accomplish their most ambitious goals and to set new ones.

The brutal truth is that what got you here won’t get you to wherever you want to be. It’s time to shatter the pattern, to make possible what’s necessary and necessary what’s possible, and to lean into new ways of thinking, being, and doing in leadership.

“...it’s terrific!”

Challenging leaders to think differently, be better, & do less to accomplish even more

It’s time for Executive Coaches and CEOs to develop a new learner’s mindset around leadership: one that recognizes “any way of seeing is a way of not seeing,” one that “always asks if there’s another way,” and one that will empower you with “the courage to be ruthless about learning…and unlearning.”

Those are the words of Dr. Lee Thayer, whose life’s work transformed how we think about leadership.

Leadership TBD (Thinking, Being, Doing) — based on Dr. Thayer’s work, and led by his protégé and successor, Joelle Thayer — will guide you to eliminate the habits and thinking that no longer serve you and your company.  There is no playbook for today’s unprecedented challenges.
