The Powerful Impact of Leadership Development

The main key to successful leadership is understanding that there’s a difference between leadership training vs. leadership development. Think about it, training focuses on best practices while development focuses on next practices and encourages forward thinking. Many organizations are not thriving because they believe that training leadership is the way to go. However, developing leaders is the key. In leadership development your organization can achieve many goals. Some of them include:

  • Helping to improve the bottom-line.
  • Attracting and retaining talent.
  • Positive Return on Investment.
  • Increasing organization agility.
  • Inspiration within your company or industry. (Be the example)

A Different Approach to Leadership Development

We serve organizations, administrators, executives, schools, and non-profits seeking result-oriented outcomes.

It was great to have TAP talk about diversity and equity in today’s training. The workshop exposed blind spots and opportunities for us to work for greater equity and greater understanding to assist in creating a welcoming culture that is inclusive to all here at Central Catholic High school.

The diversity, equity, and inclusion workshop was needed to move forward to enlighten administration, faculty, and staff on ways to get along. I would recommend that any university, educational facility, or business use TAP to provide a warm feeling workshop to advance you.

Central Catholic High School Cultural Inclusion Advisor

Today’s workshop on diversity, equity, and inclusion was very informative. The biggest takeaway for me was self-reflection; before you can discuss what’s going on in your school, you have to discuss how I contribute positively or negatively. The interactive portion of the presentation was very helpful.
