Leadership & Teams

You're visiting us here at Querencia because you already know what we know. Effective leadership - and unfortunately, the occasional lack thereof - is a very, very big deal. Not supporting and developing existing, new and emerging leaders at every level of your organization all of the time ... Well. That's a recipe for constant headaches and resource drain at best, utter failure at worst.

Let's be clear. We're not talking about management.  When you work with us, you'll soon learn that those terms are NOT interchangeable. Managers manage things. Leaders lead people. Both are vitally important. It's just that being good at one doesn't necessarily make you good at the other. And too often ... Capable managers are "rewarded" with leadership roles for which they might be ... Ill-suited. Unequipped. And otherwise set up for failure.  They fail. Their teams fail. Their organizations fail.

This is not OK.  

But ... Wait. That sounds negative.  Perhaps even un-fixable. And it's NOT. In fact, that sometimes wide, too often (seemingly) impassable canyon between management and leadership ... We live there. We operate there. We love it there. Because we know that there are ways out of that confusion, resources to help you chart a course, things that turn possible - and real - failures into successes.

You can avoid the setbacks, the risks, the failures. Let us help.

Leadership development is any activity that enhances the quality of leadership within an individual or organization. When we work with individuals or teams within this framework of leadership, we focus on things like:

  • Fostering self-awareness
  • Coaching for strengths-based skill building
  • Enhancing communication styles
  • Unmasking attitudes toward conflict and confrontation
  • Supporting solid leadership and cohesive teams

Organizations often need our expertise during times that involve:

  • Individual Leadership Development
  • Collective Team Development
  • Tools for New and Emerging Leaders
  • Succession Planning
  • Leadership through times of Change and Transition

Management is doing things right; leadership is doing the right things.
— Peter Drucker
It’s about communication. It’s about honesty. It’s about treating people in the organization as deserving to know the facts. You don’t try to give them half the story. You don’t try to hide the story. You treat them as - as true equals, and you communicate and you communicate and communicate.
— Louis V. Gerstner, Jr.
If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.
— John Quincy Adams
