Why do some people seem to have "executive presence" and "business confidence" as leaders while others struggle with finding their true leadership identity?  How do you set a strategy and drive it to completion? What assets and liabilities do you bring as a leader?  Do you have the benefit of an executive coach to point out your derailers, strong suits, and necessary next steps? Wouldn't it be great to strategize on current job challenges with an industry expert and certified coach?

The PDC works exclusively with individuals at the front-line supervisor through senior executive levels.  Essentially, we advance personal leadership performance, both through increased technical as well as behavior skill development.  Let your executive presence take you to the top!

  • Create a current level and "next level" action plan
  • Get one-to-one feedback from a cadre of industry experts and coaches
