If Peter Drucker was right about "Culture eats strategy for breakfast", then leadership eats everything else because it creates the culture.

2 distinct studies reached a similar result that Leadership Effectiveness provides 38% leverage to overall business performance. 

This is a bigger leverage than most companies’ gross profit margin, but very few companies have the Leadership Effectiveness Index on their KPI dashboard.
We are a next-generation performance transformation firm that helps leadership teams grow their business results by increasing their Leadership Effectiveness Index, individually and collectively, so they can make a global impact.

It’s a paradigm shift from the outdated costly and ineffective contractual leadership development projects into an affordable and agile leadership team performance transformation on a monthly renewal subscription, despite offering tailor-made services.

Our work designed to help organizations make the difficult quantum leap from the end of one growth phase to the next growth phase by evolving the organizational capacity and capability to create outcomes that matter most.

Varlinx Differentiator
The Organization Cannot Perform  at a Level Higher than the collective EFFECTIVENESS of its Leadership Team
As disruption accelerates at an unprecedented rate and growth cycles become shorter and shorter, a pressing question has emerged: “How can we grow a business in such a disruptive, uncertain, and complex world?”

Along with escalating complexity comes the challenge of developing the creative capacity to continually transform our organization in response to rapidly changing market conditions. 

The ability to develop leaders capable of navigating in an increasingly complex world is a competitive advantage. Therefore, leadership must evolve at least at the pace of the escalating complexity.

If the complexities of the challenges leaders face are more complex than they are, they are outmatched every single time. 

We help leaders to evolve the complexity of their mind to be equal to the complexity of the challenges they face. 

This requires Leadership Effectiveness with the creative capacity to invent the future and the capability to navigate the journey towards this future.

together, We make 
the invisible…visible, 
the uncomfortable…comfortable, 
and the ordinary…extraordinary.

Effective leaders outperform ineffective leaders every time

An Integrated Framework for Transformative Performance and Extraordinary Business Results
The Leadership Effectiveness transformation system has 7 interlocking and reinforcing components that, taken together, accomplish more than any single-component solution could.
Individual and Team Leadership Effectiveness Evaluation 
The Leadership Circle Profile™ is a breakthrough 360-degree profile that reveals the relationship between patterns of action and internal assumptions that drive behavior. Ultimately, LCP goes to the source of behavior to get greater leverage on change in a way that brings the key issues to the surface instantly. It puts leaders in touch with what is working, what is not, and why!
Leadership Culture Survey 
The Leadership Culture Survey™ delivers a powerful litmus test of your leadership culture. It reveals how your people view their current leadership culture and compares that reality to the optimal culture they desire and benchmark it to other organizations. The “gap” between data on the current culture and the desired outcome instantly reveals key opportunities for leadership development. 
Kickoff Workshop
The Promise of Leadership™ is a half to a full-day workshop that frames the collective view of leadership. It frames the collective view of the leadership and guides all future development work and delivers feedback in a team context. 
Leadership Development Plan 
Identifying the “One Big Thing”™
leaders can work on to improve behaviors they want to address that will have the most impact on
 their leadership effectiveness and business performance.
Team Coaching
The Leader to Leader™ is a team-based series of half-day leadership effectiveness sessions every 4 to 6 weeks conducted virtually or physically. The leadership team comes together to learn and practice new leadership skills to increase both their leadership effectiveness and business performance. It offers a powerful combination of business issue resolution with accelerated professional and personal development for your key cross-functional leaders or intact teams. 
Quarterly Surveys
Near-real-time Pulse Survey™ reinforces leaders to take action on their Leadership Development Plan (One Big Thing) by inviting an Accountability Circle of colleagues to give direct feedback on how their behavior-change experiments are working and measure performance against goals. 
One-on-One Coaching 
Monthly 60-minute coaching sessions help top leaders enhance their leadership effectiveness by leveraging their gifts without their liabilities. 
Leadership enhances the ORGANIZATIONAL CAPABILITY AND capacity to create OUTCOMES THAT matter most.
~Bob Anderson
Engagement and Pricing 
A typical engagement starts with the CEO and 1-3 months later the top team joins or the CEO and the top team are starting together from day one. 

After seeing measurable success on assessments and performance, the top team may expand the leadership effectiveness transformation to the extended leadership and beyond.

Unlike any other management consulting firm, our fees are straight forward, fully transparent and standardized despite the delivery of a customized program to your specific needs. 

The fees are affordable because most of the interactions are over Zoom except for the kickoff workshop that must be delivered physically and preferably offsite. It fits organizations which executives travel intensively. 

The fee is just $1,000 per participant per month. 

It includes all the 7 components mentioned above except travel expenses.
