Leadership Development

Getting work done through the efforts of other people presents a variety of challenges. We leaders are often unaware of the effects we have on those we lead. The unintended consequences of our misinformed actions often lead to undesirable results. What are we to do under these challenging circumstances?

There is no leadership style or set of leadership skills that are effective in all circumstances. It takes different skills to lead a military organization than a non-profit; a team of twenty-somethings than a team of forty-somethings; a manufacturing company than a senior care facility. Each leader brings to their position a unique set of strengths and limitations.

There are however, some overarching principles that great leaders live by that give them an advantage in getting great work done through others.

Lighthouse provides research-based answers to the question, "How can I be a more effective leader?"

Emotional Intelligence & Competence

Mastery does not happen by accident. It is a process that occurs as we interact effectively with the events and circumstances of our lives. Each moment of our lives provides an opportunity to practice mastery by expanding our visions, awakening the faculties of our minds and our hearts, and assuming full responsibility for living, growing, and contributing.

Doug is teaching lessons as a friend which creates a safe area to open discussions and share our experiences. Also, he is linking these lessons to live examples which help us to apply these lessons to our work and life. He is an amazing and helpful instructor.

Doug’s easy-going style and flexibility; the fact that you really seem to care that we understand and learn the information; the way that you keep us engaged; your knowledge and familiarity with the material/information.

Doug is unassuming, affable, and easy to listen too.  He presents the material at a good pace and clearly studies his delivery style and practices his class material presentations.

Doug makes you think and gets good participation from the class modules and exercises, provides excellent ideas as well as thoughts to ponder on. Videos and slides are of great value to the topic and easy to relate or understand.

Doug is calm, friendly & warm. He knows the material & is able to help us see connections to work and home. He allows time for discussion & thought. He creates a comfortable and safe place for discussion.

The most effective part of Doug’s instruction is the trusting relationship that he was able to establish with us right away.

Positive , energetic attitude.   Organized, forthright, to the point, stays on topic, clear.  Obvious that he  wants to include everyone – accepting, polite, respectful of everyone  and portrays one who appreciates each person for their unique abilities, skills and current status.  Doug portrays humility, honesty and a forthright teaching manner that is not overbearing.

I appreciate that he (Doug) has a high degree of knowledge in all the subjects that have been presented. He has the ability to link research, stats, and studies to real world business and personal leadership.

He’s engaging without being judgmental.  He allows for free expression openly and then summarizes the value nuggets out of the sometimes rambling discussion.

I like that Doug seems to really care about the people he is instructing. And I really, really appreciate that he ties current teachings back to previous teachings. Because there is so much content to think about, and when I go back to my day job it is hard to keep all the information fresh in my mind.

Professional Excellence Coaching

"In large organizations having an executive coach is becoming a status symbol, as in, “The Company values me so much they’re willing to get me my own coach. Don’t you have one?”

The purpose of having an executive coach is to help you see things you can’t see, to provide an outside perspective with expertise to guide you to a better, more successful and fulfilling place. The best of the best can’t see themselves clearly, not even you. With the help of the Lighthouse Coaching Model, and third-party objective assessments, coaches at Lighthouse will illuminate the path to a brighter future."
