Transforming the way you live and work in the world

Programs For Leaders

Superior business performance is directly connected to the development of leadership capability. Organizations that invest in developing their people as effective leaders and managers create a sustainable advantage in an increasingly complex and competitive business environment. Organizations with highly effective leaders outperform competitors and have a meaningful and significant impact on their communities and the world.







Leaders often come to their positions with extensive technical knowledge and experience but limited development in the skills of leading and accomplishing
objectives through others. True leadership, rather than being the practice of power, is the ability to build influence and attract followers. Being influential requires understanding how one’s personal style and presence impact people,
in ways intended and unintended.

Using a well-established and proven approach, GISC’s leadership development programs will help leaders capitalize on their individual strengths to become more influential and effective, supporting their ability to lead high performing teams and organizations. GISC’s leadership training approach includes assessment tools, case studies, and a significant emphasis on practice, feedback and reflection.

“What I have learned from GISC has allowed me to create a more open and transparent company …so as our brand continues to grow in the marketplace, our organization can grow with that same mission, values, and beliefs… We walk the talk. Companies that can pull this off, I think, have a much better and healthier life and increased opportunity for success.”

“A year after taking GISC leadership programs, I’ve noticed how much more at ease I am in high-pressure situations. I’ve come to appreciate my strengths and rely upon them more naturally.”

“While companies spend time focusing on management and financials, they often ignore the most important element - people and leadership. The Leadership in the 21st Century experience was one of the most profound personal and professional experiences that I have ever had. The impact was such that I have implemented a full leadership program in my company based on what I have learned in Gestalt. We are working to make Gestalt leadership a ‘way of being’ for us - a central component of our culture, and a primary driver of our future success.”
