LGL Leadership
Lansing, Kansas
Contact: Guy Hatch at (860) 280-4152

LGL Leadership offers leadership and organization development using a combination of well-studied research and unique high-energy programs, delivered by a cadre of accomplished leadership practitioners. Founded in 2010, the company has had the privilege to work across disparate industries, including community banking. Our approach is to first understand your organization’s context, strengths, and challenges, a process called Discovery. Using this knowledge, we work with you to tailor programs specific to need and intended participants; this is referred to as the BluePrint. As human behavior is often the target, programs are intentionally longer-term in order to achieve intended objectives—generally 12-24 months. Content is delivered most optimally in face-to-face encounters. These are not classes or training sessions, but genuine experiential learning opportunities that deliver high engagement levels and rich conversation again and again. Topics emerge from the Discovery-BluePrint process, but often touch:  leadership foundations, emotional intelligence, team building, positive accountability, succession planning, stress management, or communicating as a leader. Other, capstone-level programs are additionally available. We bring no agenda other than to work as hard as we know how to maximize individual leader and organizational success.
