The world-class leader’s journey has three turns. 

In the first, you learn to lead your self. You learn about you, your capacities, your boundaries, and how to lead where you are concerned. 

In the second, others have acknowledged your gifts and invite you to lead a team or an organization. You learn about the organization - its capacities and its boundaries, and about how to lead where others are concerned. 

Once these turns are mastered, the world-class leader can enter turn three —a uniquely sculpted place. You have opportunity to craft deeper vision out of chaos, to discover and orchestrate future value for the organization you steward, and to lead where legacy is concerned. Executive leaders whose careers take them to ultimate guidance of an organization are challenged to move into futures they might glimpse but often cannot fully see. A firm's future value, as well as the executive's succession and legacy, is tied to how they lead from this point. This is Maestro-level leadership. 

The Maestro-level leader is entering the third turn of a journey; this is where our conversations will flow as a resource for accomplished leaders who intend to soar toward that future.
