Through one-on-one coaching, executive team development, and small group classes, Leading by DESIGN equips leaders across West Michigan with the tools and training to discover and develop their individual blueprint for success.
“Leading by DESIGN has changed my working definition of leadership. I now have a much clearer model in mind for what my role is and should be as a leader.”

“If you’re thinking about Lead 365 or putting someone through it, do it. I can tell you it’s been life changing for me. I think this was more valuable to me than an MBA program.”
“LEAD 365 reinforced a lot of good practices I’ve been working to implement while introducing me to new concepts that have impacted how I lead and train others to lead. And the one-on-one coaching was amazing.”
