What is the Sapphire leadership system?

The Sapphire Leadership System is a strategically designed system that teaches new leaders the key principles and practices needed for success in a leadership role.  Unlike other programs, we provide small pieces of information at a time, along with specific action items specifically designed to help you implement the principles taught.  We do this for one simple reason: to keep it simple!  Leadership development need not be complicated, but it does need to be effective and powerful!

 We also provide a community of like-minded leaders united in our effort to lead people better in any situation.  We also provide group discussion, Q&A sessions, lectures from leadership experts, and individual coaching to help our members achieve their career goals.  Our entire system is designed to help you learn and implement principles and habits for long-term success!

Hear What Others Are Saying

Melanie R.

"I feel more confident speaking to people, I feel more confident in my own interactions with my thoughts and my process."

Kevin I.

“Without a doubt, going through this program improved my confidence and my leadership skills!”

Todd R.

“My confidence level as a leader really stepped up and it comes back to being engaged, and knowing your information, which is what this course is all about.”









The word SAPPHIRE is an acronym that represents the objectives of our entire system.  They are also the code of conduct we expect all of our leaders to adhere to.


In some cultures the sapphire–a blue gemstone–represents wisdom and generous thinking.  We like that!  Join us in increasing our wisdom and expanding our generous thinking!
