Our Leadership Model

Leadership Begins at the Personal Level

Relationship Acuity® refers to the personal and interpersonal competencies we need to work productively with others. Our leadership model illustrates three levels of leadership, each requiring a specific set of skills that build on and complement each another. Together, these competencies form the broad spectrum of leadership capabilities that exemplify Relationship Acuity®.

Our Learning Framework

From What and Why to How

A growing body of research confirms the importance of reflection for boosting learning. Reflection is a continuous process of asking questions like, “Why did things turn out differently than expected?” and “What can I learn from this experience?” We believe that learning is a cycle of insight, followed by reflection, and completed with practice. Insight leads to reflection, reflection leads to understanding, and practice leads to change.
