taking the lead

Taking the lead is the process of becoming a leader. It's a give and take - you claim that territory for yourself, and others look to you to lead them. At every level, whether this is your first job or your fifth startup, it's about learning how to work with that process. Discovering who you are now, who you are becoming, and what the world is like in the places where you want to contribute - that's the heart of leader development.

I teach leadership classes that can be customized for leaders at all levels, from first line, first-timers to senior executives. Please see classes and coaching for a full list of topics.
