Focal Pointe Leadership DevelopmentLeaders aren’t born they are made. And they are made just like anything else, through hard work. And that’s the price we’ll have to pay to achieve that goal, or any goal.
~ Vince Lombardi

We are all leaders either by choice or default. The question is not whether we will lead, but rather how will we lead?

Leadership is the ability to create a vision, inspire and motivate yourself and others to move towards that vision, find opportunity in barriers and obstacles along the way, and execute the plan to make the vision a reality. Strong leaders are the key to creating powerful teams and exceptional organizations.

Whether you are a brand new team leader, manager or seasoned executive, having direct reports is an honor, a privilege and a responsibility. The people in an organization are your biggest asset and deserve exceptional leadership under which to grow, produce and thrive. As an ideal leader, you have the unique opportunity to inspire, influence and directly impact the productivity and lives of those who work for you and around you. So why not be your absolute best?

As you grow, experience new roles, people and organizations, so does your leadership style and requirements. Investing in your development and that of your team puts you on the path towards maximizing job performance, productivity and results and drives fulfillment, loyalty and retention among your organization.

At Focal Pointe, we believe that investing in the leaders of today and tomorrow is the single best investment you can make towards creating a solid foundation and platform for your company. We also recognize that needs vary depending on experience and roles. Focal Pointe is here to listen to your objectives, understand your infrastructure, and work with you to design the right leadership training program to meet your needs.

The Energy Leadership Index (E.L.I.) is a one-of-a-kind assessment that enables leaders to hold up mirrors to their perceptions, attitudes, behaviors and overall leadership capabilities. It is the only assessment of its kind and one that has a complete, clear, customized coaching program associated with it.

This system is comprised of an introduction, followed by 12 developmental segments. The program is completely customized to each leader, and offers a baseline for current level of awareness, performance and effectiveness. Leaders create their personalized developmental road map and quickly progress toward becoming an ideal leader.


“We initially engaged Sue for a leadership assessment with the intent to build a stronger more focused leadership team. We thought, much like other leadership assessments that we had researched, this would be one possibly two workshops and we would then be on our own. After one meeting, we realized what Sue could bring to the organization, and have now engaged her numerous times with ongoing plans for additional workshops and individual coaching.”
