Are you tired of having to always have all the answers? Does worrying about whether you will get the deliveries you need sap your energy and brain space? Are you running into roadblock after roadblock with your people and projects? The problem isn’t your leadership, it’s your leadership paradigm.


  • We will introduce you to Intent-based Leadership™, a new leadership paradigm, one that was pioneered on a nuclear submarine.
  • With the paradigm of Intent-Based Leadership™, the culture of the organization shifts from one of permission and waiting, to intent and action.
  • We will learn how this paradigm can be used to creating environments where people succeed. Where the focus is achieving excellence rather than avoiding failure, preventing the propagation of errors.
