“If you want to build a ship, don’t drum up the people to gather wood, divide the work, and give orders. Instead, teach them to yearn for the vast and endless sea.”
–Antoine De Saint-Exupery, Author of The Little Prince
Is there such a thing as a “natural born leader”. Absolutely. Perhaps a more important questions is: can these skills be developed and enhanced in those who may not fit that category? The answer is an unwavering Yes!
At Leap Frog Coaching & Consulting we believe a true leader is one who inspires and helps his or her people move forward in a quiet yet decisive way. They nurture their people, work with them to develop their strengths, and help foster and reveal the leader within each one of them. There are many names for this type of leadership style: Primal Leadership, Servant Leadership, Resonant Leadership, to name a few. When it comes right down to it, a true leader is one who teaches his or her people to yearn for the sea.
Top-down styles of management are becoming a thing of the past for very good reasons and it is critical to develop and enhance a style that is not only right for your people, but for the bottom line as well.
If we don’t have the language and the ability to communicate our vision, intentions, and a clear direction, progress is difficult. Developing leadership skills is not only crucial at work, but also for one’s personal and family life, and community. The goal is to develop oneself, set the example, and to bring your successes into developing others to tap into their inner leaders.
Keep in mind that:
- For every 1% improvement in workplace environment there is a 2% increase in revenue.
- 50%-70% of employee morale is a direct result of leadership.
We approach leadership development from a neuroscience perspective. We provide the science to back up the tenets of our program, facilitating sustainable and inspired development.
What if everyone looked forward to Monday mornings? What kind of leader inspires that excitement in his or her people?
Are you ready to…
- Honestly identify areas of improvement in your leadership style?
- Work hard to achieve the growth that will best benefit you and your people?

What makes you want to be a better leader?
What’s stopping you?
Our approach to leadership development is based on the fundamentals of:
- Emotional Intelligence
- Working with a variety of leadership styles
Effective leadership is knowing how to lead at any given critical moment. Leaders have a responsibility to work with people in understanding how to think from within. They work with people in a non-threatening way, helping them to develop the ability to think for themselves rather than thinking for them or telling them how to think. When an employee operates from an empowered and fully supported place, he or she is yearning for the sea. What more could a leader want for his or her team?
The 60 Second PhD in Leadership
Think back to the best boss you ever had and the worst boss you ever had.
1. Make a list of all things done to you that you abhorred.
2. Don’t do them to others. Ever.
3. Make another list of things done to you that you loved.
4. Do them to others. Always.
And you thought leadership was complicated.
