How We Work

We take a unique approach to leadership development and organizational growth and prosperity. We are leadership experts, yet we are senior managers ourselves with a track record of personal success in business. We know the pressures you are under. With our knowledge and experience, we will help you attack real issues while equipping your managers and teams with proven leadership practices. That’s a powerful combination.

We offer a true partnership approach. We are very committed to the clients we serve. We develop solid enduring relationships. For several clients, we’ve developed customized programs from the ground up to satisfy a very specific business need. We are deeply invested in our client’s success.

“ILA listens and very much wants to understand the culture, atmosphere and issues. They listen to examples, and make their programs relevant. I have extreme respect for them.”

Our Beliefs

Our business has been built on some core beliefs, which have been validated time and again through our work with large and small companies, government agencies, non-profits and everything in between.

Leadership does make a real difference. In fact, it is often the only difference between ordinary and great performance – between a tolerable and an extraordinary workplace.

Leadership development is a process, not one training session or even a series of independent events.

A primary responsibility of leaders is to develop more leaders. Therefore, leadership is everyone’s business.

Good people deserve good leadership. Organizations are made up of many good people, who deserve good leaders.
