Levels of Development
Humans develop through very specific stages over the course of their lives, and along the way they can become better equipped to handle the complexities of today's fast-paced and interdependent business environment.

"Are leaders born?"
This is an interesting question that I am often asked in the leadership development programs we run at 5.12 Solutions.
We believe that leadership isn't about being charismatic and it’s not about some magical qualities that are bestowed upon you at birth. And you don’t have to go through special forces training as a rite of passage.
Leadership is about employing key skills and behaviors on a consistent basis.
And those skills and behaviors can be learned.

Are you tired of showing up at meetings and not knowing why you are there to begin with?
That seems to be the norm in most organizations.
The problem is that when there isn't a clear purpose and agenda for a meeting, people waste time and energy endlessly talking around each other - never closing on decisions and moving actions forward.
Do you know what the Number 1 excuse is for not having an agenda?
"We don't have enough time."
People are too busy, overwhelmed, and overloaded.
