The Leap to Leader

Calling all aspiring leaders! It’s time to bridge the gap between managers and true leaders. Get ready to take the leap and become the influential figure your organization needs. 

The research is in, and it’s crystal clear: Leadership is a must-have skill. But here’s the catch; most companies only offer leadership training after a decade of experience in a leadership role. Don’t wait that long! Join us on this transformative journey and unlock your leadership potential. We have the tools, insights, and strategies you need to jump. Are you ready to step up and be the leader you were meant to be? It’s time to seize this opportunity and make your mark. Let’s do this!


Let’s talk about how to take The Leap to Leader: How to go from Ambitious Manager to Making the Jump to Leadership. 

In the world of Leadership, there’s always been a lot of talk about climbing the corporate ladder, but do you believe there’s a way to go from being an ambitious manager to an outstanding leader?  I ask because everyone in Leadership will tell you there is a vast difference between managing and leading your people.


Today’s guest is here to share exactly how to take that leap, Adam Bryant. Adam joined The ExCo Group, a senior leadership development and executive mentoring firm, as managing director in 2017 after a 30-year career in journalism, including 18 years at The New York Times as creator of the iconic Corner Office column in the New York Times. 

Adam Bryant has interviewed more than 1,000 CEOs and other senior leaders over the last dozen years, and his focus for the conversations has been on the crucial leadership lessons learned rather than asking them about their company strategy. All those insights help contribute to the books he has written and his work in leadership development and executive mentoring for the ExCo Group.

Adam has written four books based on the themes that emerged from those interviews, and his latest book is, “The Leap to Leader: How Ambitious Managers Make the Jump to Leadership.”
