Based on the highly efficient submarine leadership model, ‘The Submarine Way’ system is infused with a combination of talent-based leadership from a former Gallup Workplace Consultant along with the business expertise of a senior executive in Fortune 300 companies. This inclusive leadership system is unique enough to have received a published patent.

The system utilizes 4 Steps which include Assessment, Coaching Individuals, Coaching and Training Teams, and finally Reinforcing New Behaviors. These 4 steps surfaced from the secret world of submarines to fully develop key people, drive inclusion in an organization and drive KPIs such as profitability, retention, and productivity.

Additionally, ‘The Submarine Way’ often utilizes 2 books written by the founders and chooses from a catalog of over 3 dozen programs that can be delivered in varying lengths and formats (including onsite or virtually) depending on the needs and goals of an organization.

5-Star Testimonials Include:
