Credibility of the LEAD NOW! Model

The LEAD NOW! Leadership Development Model is based on 50 years of collective management and leadership coaching experience with leaders from Fortune 500 companies, government agencies, and other worldwide organizations. The simple, yet comprehensive, model is built from surveys of 8000 executives, managers, supervisors, and employees who were asked to rank their perceptions of the most important behaviors of an ideal leader. From this work and research, the Stewarts designed the LEAD NOW! Model for leaders at all levels to use for their growth and development.

This library contains hundreds of effective tips and tools organized into 21 mini-video modules that cover each of the 21 dimensions featured in the LEAD NOW! Leadership Development Model.
