Develop technical professionals as leaders. Engineers, scientists, and computer personnel can be effective leaders, especially if simple investments are made in their success.
Optimize "best of the rest" leaders. While organizations allocate the bulk of their resources to "high potential" leaders, they can improve the skills of many other results-affecting leaders with minimal effort and expense.
Coach your leaders. This is one of the most valuable tools available... but only if implemented appropriately. It is also easy to combine with existing coaching programs.
Lead effective organization change. Use a framework to anticipate what must be done and when it must be done to capture discretionary effort from the team. Less wasted effort, better communications, and earlier results are the benefits of such an investment in leaders.
Work with a thought partner. Whether you're a leader or leader development professional, Ken can serve as your "sounding board" for initiatives. This cost-effective approach builds your decision confidence. Ken's style is to ask key questions, then work on the answers with you. You are the final decision maker.
