Learning to Be a Great Leader

For nearly 40 years, Business of People® has been an international leader in leadership training, offering a program where CEOs and other executives from across the nation and around the world come to Columbus, Ohio, for our signature in-house program.

Unlike other leadership training programs, we do not assume that participants have the core, foundational skills that all leaders must possess. We start with the basics and then go deeper, helping you first develop the core human skills that underlie all business processes and then the higher-level skills that leaders need to be great.

leaderThis training is intense and transformative. Participants are encouraged to dig deep within themselves to truly learn what the core skills of leadership are and how to incorporate them experientially into their work.

Learn, integrate and excel at the five building blocks of outstanding leadership:

  • Be an organizationally engaged leader
  • Become a galvanizing leader
  • Develop leadership and raise the level of functionality within the workforce
  • Become a strategic thinker and leader
  • Learn how to transform organizations, lead and manage change and deal with resistance to change

By participating in Business of People, become the most powerful force for change in your organization as you:

  • Learn higher-level leadership skills: managing up, accountability, the content for great work and others
  • Learn how to develop and position your group, team, division and company for future success
  • Drive, manage, lead and understand change
  • Create a matrix platform for your leadership success

Admission to this program is extremely limited. Candidates are accepted only after an interview process. Every participant will be asked to sign a confidentiality agreement to assure privacy.

Developing Leadership from the Inside Out

Developing Leadership from the Inside Out


This book was developed in a highly unusual way. Having been a developer of leaders in many programs the author began to wonder why the higher level leadership concepts didn't stick even months after various trainings often with seasoned CEOS.   What we discovered was that all of these programs assumed that the young, emerging or even highly experienced leader had the CORE HUMAN SKILLS THAT UNDERLIE ALL BUSINESS PROCESSES especially leadership. That all of these leaders were highly aware, and that they understood the difference between answering and responding. That they understood support! This assumption turned out to be totally false. Many leaders don’t understand all 11 core skills that underlie leadership. This book was written to correct that problem. The reader will be asked in the book to struggle to gain all 11 of these skills by reading and doing the work proposed in this book.
