Developing Leadership Bench Strength

Neil Dempster will wow your audience!Leadership is different than authority! Rank and title may be bestowed upon an individual, but that may not reflect an actual ability to lead others. Here's the ultimate leadership test:

  • Look behind you.
  • If no one's following ... you're not leading!


This workshop draws upon contemporary leadership concepts, research, and anecdotal examples to create a leadership model with the proven capacity to achieve greater results, fully engage a workforce, overcome the challenges inherent in constant change and confidently lead into a purposeful future (the land of opportunity).

Target Audience

This 'expanded' target audience should include:

  • Your entire management team
  • Informal leaders
  • Emerging leaders
  • High-potential employees
  • Human resource professionals
