Our Focus

In helping new leaders become confident and successful, we focus on three areas of development:

Self-awareness and self-improvement

Being organized, being presentable, body language, time management, confidence, etc.

Practical aspects of leading a team

Decision making, leading by example, setting and enforcing rules and boundaries, communication, etc.

Working with followers

Evaluating, motivating, developing, inspiring, empowering, evaluating, etc.

Our unique method is a strong combination of the best techniques taken from the corporate and the military leadership training. It has been developed by John Maloney (corporate leader) and Gregory Bobkiewicz (military leader), who combined their years of experience in their respective environments where they have been coaching and teaching new leaders and developing them from the ground up.
