The Leader Centre Story
The Leader Centre helps businesses lead in the way that saw business owner Sarah McDowell promoted from PA to Chairman at The Academy for Chief Executives in just 7 years before being promoted to Head of Chairman Development just 3 years later. This way of leading discovered by Sarah unlocks the potential in people so that they can unlock the potential in their business.
Following a conversation with her Boss as a PA, Sarah was invited to bring everything she had to help grow the business and that’s exactly what she did, doubling the size of the business and growing the largest Academy and Directors Groups in the country - with no previous experience of sales and marketing or of developing CEO’s.
Realising that if this was possible for her then it must be possible for others, Sarah set off to find out what had made such a significant difference to her own performance so that she could help businesses get this kind of advantage for themselves. This became The Leader Centre Process.
What Sarah found, was that leaders should do the opposite of what they have previously been led to believe they should do that made the difference – having all the answers, solving all the problems, taking all the responsibility. Leaders need to do less not more.
That stuff is actually bad for business.
The Leader Centre has been created by Sarah for businesses to adopt a new way of working and see profits go up, sales go up and engagement go up.
