Who Is It For?

The Complete Leader is designed for companies and leaders who recognize that leadership development is critical to strengthening both company culture and the bottom line. It is a scalable program that can be tailored to every leader in your organization, from senior leaders to those who are just emerging and slated for future leadership roles.

Outside of company sponsorship, individual leaders can also enroll in open cohorts that are offered at select locations globally.

How Does The Complete Leader Work?

The Complete Leader is deployed in two ways:

  1. Companies can sponsor the program for leadership teams. This allows them to tackle current challenges and priorities within the organization, and gives them an opportunity to grow together. Request a program.
  2. Individual leaders or companies with just a few leaders can join an open-enrollment cohort, available in a variety of cities around the world. Find facilitators in your area.

The Complete Leader immerses leaders in the competencies required to be a high-performing leader. Throughout the program, we host expert faculty members who are national thought leaders in the areas of branding, communications, conflict management, teamwork, innovation, and more. Participants receive exposure to these experts and the opportunity to build their network as they continue on their leadership journey.

Key Components:


The Complete Leader assessment, measuring mastery of the 25 competencies. The TriMetrix HD Leadership Profile, which utilizes four distinct models to map out recurring patterns of thought, motivation and behavior, coupled with the Emotional Quotient™ (EQ) and Stress Quotient™ assessments to create greater self-awareness and clarity.


Eight to 10 days of cohort meetings over a 14-month period, with eight-week intervals between sessions.

The Complete Leader Book

An encyclopedia of the 25 leadership skills needed for clear thinking, getting things done, leading others, and developing your unique leadership journey.


Access to additional leadership resources, including coaching guides, videos, podcasts, articles, book recommendations and blogs for each of the 25 leadership skills.


Individual coaching sessions during months between group meetings. An assigned coach for each participant will assist with mutually agreed upon objectives, schedules and activities to anchor and leverage new skills.


A "mastermind" group of like-minded leaders to help build your support network, and access to the Complete Leader Alumni community afterward.

25 Leadership Competencies

The Complete Leadership Program consists of topics broken up into 4 categories, with 25 individual competencies. When you sponsor a program for your organization, the program will be talored to focus on the compencies you define are key areas of growth.



It's a comprehensive program covering many relevant areas, providing excellent self discovery and an improved group dynamic. We saw increased self-awareness and improved communication throughout the team.
