Our Leadership Training and Development Courses will help you:
  • Improve communication and collaboration

Our Discovery Process

Discovery Phase

Many leaders acknowledge that they or their team would benefit from leadership development training, but with so many training providers and programs available, it’s hard to know who and what will help you get the results you need.

One thing that separates Inspiire Leadership is our Discovery Phase, where we get up close and personal with your organization. This allows us to listen to you and your goals, concerns, and recommendations and deliver customized programs that address the unique challenges you are facing.

Our Discovery Phase is comprised of in-depth conversations,  questionnaires, and leadership & behavioral assessments.  These discussions and assessments will help our Leadership Experts understand your organization’s relationships, strengths, challenges, goals, budget, expectations and other pertinent information.

Intentional Leadership Plan

Following the Discovery Phase, we take the that information and create a tailored training plan to develop your leaders, overcome your challenges, and fill the gaps in existing training. We call this your Intentional Leadership Plan (ILP). This set of personalized, expert recommendations is free of charge for any organization considering partnering with Inspiire Leadership.

You will also receive curriculum information for the recommended programs, client testimonials, and pricing. One of our Leadership Experts will schedule a call, via teleconference of in person, to walk you through your ILP, answer any questions that you have, discuss the strategy behind our recommendations, and cover logistics for if you decide to move forward.

The ILP is meant to provide leadership and training expert opinions about which programs are best suited to help you get where you want to go. That said, you of course are not confined to the programs included in your ILP if you decide to move forward.

Custom Training Programs

The Discovery Phase allows us to recommend the right programs, but more importantly, it allows us to deliver a personalized experience through every step of your training, leading to greater change & growth.

If you decide to undergo leadership coaching, the behavioral assessments will be instrumental in matching your leaders with a coach who has faced similar experiences, and is best positioned to help them reach their goals. If you sign up for a workshop, your facilitator will send supplies ahead of time to help you prepare, and our discussions from Discovery will allow us to tailor the workshop around your team’s relationships and challenges. Throughout your training programs, content will change course as gaps are uncovered.

At the end of your training, we will schedule a debrief call to help you understand the results and takeaways. We will also recommend follow-up steps so you can continue developing your leaders and moving your team forward!

Leadership Coaching

One-On-One Coaching

Show leaders you care enough to invest in them individually, and your team will respond stronger than you can imagine.

In one-on-one coaching we help you identify your goals and opportunities for growth, and offer training and guidance throughout a 6 months or 1 year program that’s customized to get you to where you want to go.

Leaders in your organization can reach their full potential with the expertise and support of our leadership coach.

Our workshops will help you establish a culture of leadership, improve collaboration & relationships, get your team and leaders on a path of growth & development, and they never fail to kick-start team momentum!

Your workshop will be uniquely tailored and designed just for you, while addressing your organization’s unique challenges, opportunities for growth, and leadership goals. Our process and customization ensure your workshop is as impactful as it can be. When applicable, we send materials & assessments in advance, shift content as gaps are uncovered throughout the workshop, and analyze results in a debrief call at the end.

Blueprint For Success

Are you looking for a transformative experience for yourself as well as one that you can bring to others? 

The Blueprint for Success workshop is created specifically for those who are not only seeking greater clarity, purpose, passion, vision, and productivity for themselves, but for those who are also seeking to be a change-agent in their businesses and careers by offering this life-altering experience to others.

Unlike traditional events that call themselves “workshops” that just give you a bunch of content and tell you to go off to implement (leaving you to go figure out the rest on your own), at Blueprint For Success Workshop I believe in creating a transformational experience on the day of the workshop AND I have you roll up your sleeves to put it into action RIGHT AWAY.

I will help you with:

By the end of the day, you’ll walk away with clarity on your purpose and vision, as well as your unique, one of kind, blueprint to create unstoppable momentum in your business and life.

What’s the difference between a dreamer and someone who achieves a dream?

In this one-day workshop you will discover that the answer lies in answering questions that only you can answer.

Dreams are occupied by every individual. They come from hidden desires and possibilities. Everyone has dreams that occupy their minds, but it takes determination, engagement, a practical plan, and consistent effort to achieve them. Pursue your dream; begin today.

Personal Growth & Development

The Personal Growth and Development Workshop uses the third and final book in John Maxwell’s Laws series, 15 Laws of Invaluable Laws of Growth to take you on a personal growth journey that will:

  • help you reach your full potential.
  • help you become a lifelong learner.
  • how to become the person you want to be.
  • how to develop yourself so that you have the best chance of becoming the person you were created to be.

To reach your full potential, you must grow and develop yourself intentionally.  Apply these 15 laws to become all you can be.

This training curriculum will help you understand how personal growth really works, and how you can develop yourself to become a more effective and fulfilled individual. You will learn how to build up a sense of purpose and become more successful in every area of life.

Authentic Leader Within

Discovering the Authentic Leader Within is a one-day workshop that guides teams through a proven process of understanding how each person can bring his or her very best instead of trying to conform to a preconceived definition of success. Leaders find the experience liberating and empowering because they get permission to be their authentic self.


The term mastermind was made famous by Napoleon Hill in Think and Grow Rich where he stated that a Mastermind is:
“Coordination of knowledge and effort, in a spirit of harmony, between two or more people, for the attainment of a definite purpose”.
The purpose of a mastermind group is to bring together likeminded people who are dedicated and motivated to making effective and lasting changes to their lives in a collective group.

The mastermind meets an hour a week, once a week, for 5-8 weeks.  The meetings are confidential and run professionally with a curriculum and complete respect for each participant’s privacy as well as complete respect for each participant’s time is exercised.

There is a level of commitment on my part to deliver the best material to you in the allotted time with the utmost standards of professionalism as well as a level of commitment on your part to come to each meeting on time, prepared and with a positive attitude.

As we move through each lesson, as a group we will bring together our ideas and opinions that will help shape and mold our understanding of the material in a way that is far superior to simply reading a book on your own. We will be combining all of our minds to becoming a master mind.

The mastermind study will increase your awareness and understanding on how to evolve into an effective leader – raising the leadership lid to a new level. Mastermind Group participants raise the bar by challenging each other to create and implement goals, brainstorm ideas, and support each other with total honesty, respect and compassion.

Mastermind is not:
  • It’s not a class
  • It’s not group coaching
  • It’s not a networking group
