Building Winning Teams

“There are very few, if any, team-building and leadership coaches that can bring two $200 million banks together so quickly (within 3 months) and in a way that is genuine and truly sustainable.  You guys DID IT!!!

 I love and care deeply about the people I work with and Bill and Dr. Laura were so instrumental in fast-forwarding our progress.  We are totally kicking butt as THE BEST SANTA BARBARA COMMUNITY BANK and Bill and Dr. Laura are part of the family. THANK YOU.

Putting People First

We are all leaders, whether it be of our own lives, a family, a small business or a multibillion-dollar international conglomerate.

The challenge we all face is learning how to become a transformational leader. Learning how to consistently move ourselves and those that we serve from where we are today, to a much greater reality, a much brighter future.

This is the essence of Transformational Leadership, this is why we are here.!

The Six Essential Elements of Transformational Leadership

CONNECT to your PURPOSE, your POWER, and your PEOPLE!

Personal and Organizational Transformation

Transformational Leadership Defined:

Transformational Leadership is the ability to consistently lead yourself/team/organization to a destination/outcome/result greater than that which you are currently experiencing.


6 Essential Elements of Transformational Leadership


  1. A VISION so powerful and magnetic it compels others to embrace it as their own. MLK’s “I have a dream…”
  2. Clearly defined long-term, mid-term and daily HIGH VALUE TARGETS that drive “the vision” into expression and can be owned by team members.
  3. A TRAINING protocol ensuring that every team member has “best in class” skill sets necessary to achieve their individual goals.
  4. 90% ENGAGEMENT, 90% of the time by the entire team. Team members know how to communicate effectively, support each other and “lean-in”.
  5. Massive, intelligent, enjoyable ACTION every day.
  6. A real-time feedback and REVIEW process that lets you modify plans based on the actual results you are receiving.
