Founder, The Leaders Toolbox
Webinar Recording Details



As a Human Resources executive, trainer, and consultant Ralph Jacobson used many of the conventional approaches to leadership and change management training. He found most did little to help the organization achieve its strategic objectives. Despite billions of dollars spent on leadership training, employee engagement surveys suggest low morale and followership. Authors such as Pfau/Kay, Gary Hamel, Barbara Kellerman confirm the assessment.

In this program you will:
  • Learn how to quickly determine whether your leadership development program is making a difference
  • Why conventional leadership development programs fail to deliver powerful results
  • A counter-intuitive, yet powerful leadership development platform and example of tools that will achieve sustainable results
  • Examples of where the approach has been implemented…and the results achieved
