What Leaders DO

Leading is work.  It’s hard work, good work, and important work.  At LeaderWork, we believe that leaders are made, not born, and we know how to make them.  LeaderWork has more than 25 years of experience both teaching leaders the tasks of leading, and designing leadership systems that drive results.  At LeaderWork we focus on only two challenges:

Leader Development

LeaderWork helps individual leaders develop the knowledge, skills and tools to lead their teams effectively. We inform, train, support and coach leaders on the ten essential tasks they must DO:

  1. Serve
  2. Build Teams
  3. Lead
  4. Motivate
  5. Measure
  6. Organize
  7. Direct
  8. Communicate
  9. Develop People
  10. Develop Processes

Leadership Development

LeaderWork also provides standard or custom integrated leadership processes to ensure that the work of individual leaders is supported with sound systems:

  • Strategic Planning
  • Tactical Planning
  • Leader Recruiting
  • Leader Interviewing
  • Leader Orientation
  • Leader Training
  • Leader Performance Reviews
  • Survey Guided Team Development
  • Succession Planning


In most organizations the majority of people report to a first-line leader, which is often the group that gets the least preparation for the work of leading. LeaderWork can give all the leaders in your organization– from the C-suite to the first line leaders–a common language for leading, a common standard to improve toward, and a common process for building their skills.

Imagine the power of leadership as a core competence of your organization. LeaderWork has met this challenge; we know where theory ends and practical answers are needed to the question all new leaders ask, ”what DO I DO tomorrow?”
