"Surrounding yourself with dwarfs will not make you a giant."

-Ben Leichtling

The technical training organizations typically provide — e.g., how to use equipment and software - is not enough to create and keep quality leaders and employees in today's market. Technical training is not sufficient for success.

The so-called "soft skills" are crucial for peak performance: How to be at your best when you need it most. How to think and communicate. How to manage and lead people effectively. How to deal with people's emotional reactions to work events. How to handle change.

Insider information on your company's and your industry's culture is also critical.

Leaders, managers and staff must practice, practice, practice. They need practical, specific, expert and timely feedback and coaching.

"Ben's business coaching has been invaluable, as my company has gone from almost nothing in executive search fees collected in its first year to over a million dollars only a few years later. Many people have helped me along the way, but as a friend and an advisor, Ben ranks right at the top."

Ray Bedingfield, President, Woodmoor Group, Inc.

In workshops, leaders and employees can learn generalizations and some specific rules. However, experience shows that it's the day-to-day feedback by external and internal mentors and coaches – as they do their jobs -- that makes the difference between mediocrity and success.
