The M.A.D.E. To Lead Model™
We have been leaders and worked with leaders in many industries—public sector, private sector, and non-profit organizations—and over the years, we discovered a direct correlation between certain leadership behaviors and professional and personal success. We identified these critical behaviors and developed a model called the M.A.D.E. To Lead Model, which has become a critical tool in helping our clients clarify and step boldly into their Leadership Identity. Once you clarify who you need to “be” and what you are committed to “doing” to make your desired Leadership Identity a reality, you can begin to intentionally craft your Personal Leadership vision to match this need. We use the M.A.D.E. To Lead Model in partnership with other leading models, including the 15 Building Blocks of Transformational Leader Model.

We define Personal Leadership as your ability to effectively (1) Manage your internal environment (2) Ask for what you need, (3) Decide to take risks, and (4) Embody your personal mission, vision and values. These “4 Disciplines of Personal Leadership” fundamentally impact your Personal Leadership output, and are at the heart of the M.A.D.E. To Lead Model. What goes on around you is not as important as what goes on within you. Before you can lead others and organizations, you must be able to understand and lead yourself. Personal Leadership is the foundation for all types of leadership, and enables you to positively influence each person and situation you encounter. The results of the M.A.D.E. To Lead Model are consistently tangible, recognizable and measurable. The M.A.D.E. To Lead Model serves as the foundation for our speaking, coaching and training philosophies.
