Professional development and ongoing growth for leaders and business owners is critical to their success. Billions of dollars are spent annually in North American on leadership training, yet research shows that very little of it actually translates into improving leadership competencies and performance. Part of the reason for this is that the training and education are too theoretical and too technical in nature. Research has shown that the best leaders have superior emotional intelligence, relationship and strategic thinking skills, acquired from experience and coaching from mentors.
Ray Williams Associates’ leadership training programs are based on the best knowledge from human performance, leadership and brain science research, combined with experiential processes that promote the fastest personal growth and knowledge retention.
