Lead Yourself, Then Lead Others
As a leader, it is most important that you first are able to lead yourself before you can effectively lead and manage others. Many individuals are highly skilled in their job, task, and profession only to be surprised and frustrated when they get promoted into a formal leadership role.
The most important aspect of leading others is to fully understand your strengths and weaknesses and how to enhance how you “show up” as a leader. If you begin to truly care about your role as a leader, then others will see it and follow your lead. If you don’t care, see how quickly others will emulate that behavior!

A Focus on The People Element
Historically, companies limit their training to “process” and “technology,” leaving the most crucial component of development missing: How to relate to, engage, get along with, and get the most from people.
The missing link for many individuals is that they focus solely on their technical skills. This has left their communication, relationship, decision making, conflict, and emotional skills undeveloped. Our training and development addresses the most important aspect of the role as a leader, the people element.
PeopleTek has been developing leaders since 1996 ensuring that a person excels in how they deal with others and how they “show up” as a leader in their role and organization. The skills, once set in motion, last for the remainder of their career. It’s acquiring the insights and self-reflection that enable the leader to be proficient and skilled in their position and finally comfortable in the role they obtained.
