We help overwhelmed high achievers take the mystery out of leadership, grow in their capacity and competence, and become the leaders others want to follow

"LDC team has helped me to empower my managers with the skills they need to effectively lead others in completing the tasks that make us a successful organization."

The Trusted Leader.

Experienced trainers you can trust.

We find many leaders sharing the frustration of, "I should know how to do this. Why isn't it working?" 

Wrapped up in this plea is an assumption that leadership is a clear and simple concept easily understood and practiced. Reality dictates otherwise.

Trying to figure leadership out yourself in the midst of the pressures of production and the demands of personnel is like trying to perform open heart surgery on a charging rhino. You may be good. You may even be better than everyone else. However, you will never be as good as you can be without outside help. 

To be a leader, you need vision, purpose, and energy. To be a great leader, you need to know how to lead with a developmental mindset...accomplishing your goals and developing the next generation of leaders in the process. This takes clarity, intentionality, and skill. It produces effective leaders with capacity and competence others want to follow.

About us

What Makes Us Different

Transformational leadership change begins with our thinking and beliefs. Effective leadership is more than adopting someone else’s practices and methods. 


It’s learning to think differently about leading and about those we lead. From renewed thinking one then has to move into effective practices. 


We turn inspiration into actual practices. We help make it clear, doable and reproducible.

What Our Clients Say

"I know of no approach that better positions a leader to realize breakthrough results than the LDC team's model. It develops leaders from the inside out and produces sustainable organizational results."

"What LDC team brings  is important because it forces leaders to think multi-dimensionally. Business is more than the bottom line—it is developing your people as a servant leader for the good of the organization, to include its staff and people who are served."

"What I have appreciated most is the simplicity of the models, their transferability to others, and the practical applications that help build a leadership culture where development of human resources has primacy."
