    The majority of senior leaders receive little to no professional development each year. Yet, it is their skills, behaviors and decisions that will ultimately make or break the company. How many of the following challenges do you face?

    “The business is reaching a critical inflection point and I’m worried that I may be missing things in my strategies.”
    “Because I spend so much time running the business and managing my direct reports, I’ve had no time for my own development”
    “It’s extremely difficult to get objective feedback on my ideas because very few people internally will risk disagreeing with me.”
    “I’m inconsistent in finding the discipline to block out time in my schedule to think, discuss and develop fresh new ideas for the business.”
