Transformational Leadership

How do you gain a competitive edge in a world where companies have already developed best in class leadership and the ability to embrace ongoing change?

We believe that today, competitive advantage resides in organizations’ ability to be the authors of the competitive landscape. This newly created business panorama calls for transformational leadership—people who set the course for themselves and their organizations—leaders who have the courage and the wherewithal to invent the rules of the game and rewrite conventions. Installing these leading-edge breakthrough leadership competencies is an area critical to the future performance of the enterprise.

Insigniam Transformational Leadership Consulting
We Promise...

the leaders in your enterprise will reliably think newly, act differently, and mobilize themselves and others to deliver a bold future for your organization.

Develop New Leadership Competencies While Delivering Immediate Results
Understanding the components of transformational leadership, without effectively translating them into actions and business outcomes, is insufficient. All Insigniam leadership initiatives tie development and producing breakthrough results together, thereby developing leadership through delivering practical results that immediately impact the organization’s effectiveness.

Each Insigniam leadership initiative is adapted to meet the specific needs and concerns of your enterprise. All are based on the notion that leaders are not born, but developed, and that anybody can lead, regardless of title, role, or position.

Insigniam Leadership Work Comes in Three Forms:

  1. As a natural part of consulting engagements, individuals are developed, coached, and supported in demonstrating the actions, conversations, and behaviors of leaders as they execute the initiative.
  2. Customized leadership initiatives intended to catalyze and deliver a specific transformation of thought, behavior, and results at the individual, strategic, and/or organizational levels.
  3. Insigniam also provides standardized offerings for every level of an organization. These include:

High Performance Leader...

is for C-level and senior executives accountable for the future of the enterprise and for fulfilling the organization’s strategy, to take them to an entirely new echelon of impact, leadership, inspiration, and delivered results.

The Leadership Intensive...

serves already effective executives and top-tier senior directors—typically with functional expertise—who are looking to break into an entirely new realm of impact and leadership.

The Inspirational Leader...

provides directors and managers who are being asked to add new dimensions and capabilities to their existing leadership portfolio with potent tools, distinctions, and practice areas.

Super-Vision...

is intended for first-time and/or recently promoted front line managers or supervisors who must both lead and work with those closest to the heart of the business to drive operational excellence and effectiveness.

Catalytic Coaching...

is for executives that need a dramatic and almost immediate elevation of their performance.

Executive Coaching...

is for leaders in the organization who are committed to ongoing development.

    Bonnie has instituted Insigniam’s methodology at Fortune 500 companies in a variety of industries, including medical devices, pharmaceuticals, fast moving consumer goods, food, and banking as well as in not-for-profit organizations. Working with a cross-functional team on a Breakthrough Project in the medical device industry, Bonnie guided the team to produce results the client stated as being not only ‘unpredictable but impossible’. The team deployed Insigniam’s methodology to make their submission to the FDA four months ahead of schedule and launched the product nearly six months early capturing an unmet need in the marketplace. Within a year this product was the global market leader in sales not only in its product segment but also in the overall category.
