WHO WE ARE
BKD Leaders is made up of an amazing group of people who actually care about making better leaders. We practice what we preach, and always deliver incredible professional development experiences. We train, develop, coach, mentor, consult, and give keynotes with any person who cares enough to invest in their own – and their employees’ – leader development journey.
BKD Leaders is the industry leader in the training and developing of employees for leadership roles, and in maximizing the effectiveness of experienced managers and executives. BKD Leaders are scholars and leadership experts dedicated to driving organization-wide performance through training and developing leaders.
We created our BKD Leader Model (Being. Knowing. Doing.) based on cutting edge research using the three pillars of effective leader development: Being a leader. Knowing how to lead. Doing the right things for the right reasons. We make leaders who make better leaders of everyone around them, transforming every person into their best leader self.
Leadership isn’t easy and Leaders need to know how to lead! BKD Leaders believes everyone has the potential lead. Our proprietary Being. Knowing. Doing. model shapes the way individuals see themselves as leaders, and increases their belief in their ability to lead, and empowers them with tools that maximize individual, follower, and organizational performance. BKD leader development programs strengthen leaders’ critical thinking, creative thinking, and strategic thinking ability, raising the quality of their decision making.
Why do we do it? Because studies show that leader development and training programs generate ROI that exceeds 200% The payback for developing leaders is huge. Why? Because a rising tide lifts all ships. People who learn to lead make everyone around them perform better. We are committed to making the world a better place by making better leader. Join the BKD Leaders movement to pull out the leader from within everyone – all ages, ethnicities, cultures at every level of every organization.
