​Ward Leadership offers targeted opportunities for professional development:

“Ward Leadership created a very fertile environment to go offline and, in a targeted and focused way, come to agreement about a core strategic direction. Sally’s expertise and interpersonal style were immensely helpful to me and my staff in architecting the best way to use the time of a group of very intense and busy people.”

“The Leader as Coach training is a terrific way to augment a human resources function at any organization that’s interested in empowering staff to hold themselves and others accountable.  It recognizes that sometimes they only need someone to ask powerful questions and be an active listener to help guide them to being more accountable for their behavior. It helps an organization achieve outcomes based upon maximizing our most valuable natural resource, our employees.”
