Leadership Development

Do more with less

If your team is leaner, but your business goals have expanded, then it’s time to fine-tune your business engine by making your leaders more efficient and effective. You want them to succeed. They’ve gotten far on the skills that they have. But there’s a difference between being a manager, and being an effective leader. And that difference often determines whether or not your business goals are met.

The buck stops with you. You reap the rewards of hitting your targets but you also take the blame if you don’t. No excuses. Giving your managers the leadership skills to succeed will enrich their career, build a better culture and directly impact the short and long-term goals of your business. It’s an investment that can pay for itself many times over.

There’s a continuum of approaches to leadership development that have direct vs. indirect impact. I focus on the direct. Over the past 20 years, I’ve refined a unique process using a powerful combination of the best of behavioral science, business management theory, academic research, Oxford training and 30 years of real world business experience. I help your leaders get out of their own way, and understand their true potential, so that they can have a more direct impact on business results. It’s easier than you’d think. It doesn’t take forever, and you won’t have to do any heavy lifting.

“We can’t say enough about Leslie Hilton! She volunteered to lead a class for our Denver Human Services’ Ascend Leadership program. Leslie kept the class interesting and animated. The class was very hands on, interactive and educational. Everyone left with something they will use in their future. We hope she will come again!”

Transform your leaders. Transform your business.

I help your leaders understand, assimilate and embrace the true meaning of effective leadership.

  • What makes leaders inspiring, fair and effective
  • How do they bring out the best in those around them, and build a great culture, using respect rather than fear
  • Where are they now as leaders, and what’s possible for them
  • Where are the gaps, and how do they close those gaps in order to achieve business goals
