"We have used consultants in the past that gave us a 'quick fix' but nothing that had what I call 'staying power'. Teamwork shows up on a daily basis and just gets better.
The following are the real strength of the process that continues to bring our company success:

President, Oasis, Inc.
Vision Leadership delivers exciting and transformational leadership development programs that increase leadership capacity and maturity, expand creativity and innovation, and create cultures of high-performance teamwork. We draw upon the experiential power of adventure-based learning, made relevant through the integration of highly reliable leadership development models. Participants come away with an understanding of their own expanded capacity, a sense of deepened engagement, and a new passion for authentic leadership.
We are committed to create outstanding teams that produce extraordinary results, giving you and your organization powerful tools for success in the most challenging issues you face. We do this by engaging the principles of:
"We have realized noticeable, measurable improvements in our ability to communicate and function as a true team. For today's economy that especially values quality service, we consider our work with Vision Leadership a necessary and prudent investment."
Andrew F. Toyota
CEO, iSeer, Inc.
|How We Work
We begin with an appreciative assessment to better understand your culture, people, current challenges, and leverage points. The process of transformation actually starts here. As we are becoming familiar with your organization, we invite you to see it with fresh eyes as well.
Then we set some parameters, so we all know how to measure the results. This not only gives you the satisfaction of having made an investment with a high return, but also becomes a very powerful motivational tool.
The custom-designed events that follow often include much more than the adventure-based learning activities you see on these pages; facilitated group discussions, action planning sessions, and one-on-one coaching are also included. The resulting unshakable esprit-de-corps will transform the way your organization operates, and ensure cooperative effortseven in the face of inevitable conflicts and external chaos.
"I would highly recommend your organization to any company, no matter how large or small, or to individuals looking to expand their thinking process of leadership skills: motivating others, pushing personal limits, handling change, decision making, and coaching others to set and achieve goals that may be perceived to be unreachable. Vision Leadership has the perfect balance of business savvy and creativity to meet the needs to a changing business environment and maximize the talents of the people who can make a difference."
