The verb "to lead" in English comes from the indo-european word "leith" which means "to go forward," "cross a threshold" or "die": a threshold must be crossed so that something new can appear, it is a "passage." The leader is someone who will determine a vision, dare to venture into the unknown, and encourage his teams and others to go beyond their comfort zone and work through fears in order to construct a new project together.

You can become a better leader
For Turningpoint, leadership is not something that is learned because an individual cannot be trained to create the future, nor to produce innovative and original responses to unique circumstances.
However, leadership is discovered and experienced by encouraging and stimulating each Executive. Even if each person has different aptitudes, everyone has capacities that are often unexploited that can be developed.
If you want to go higher, go deeper
We believe that above all else, people follow a person with an authentic personality, not a role or hierarchial position.
Even if leadership styles are numerous and varied, we believe that a leader is someone who :
- acts ethically and presents a unified vision and convictions
- has confidence in himself
- puts his strengths to use in the service of a project
- is open with others
- re-evaluates his ideas to constantly continue the learning process
In order to become this kind of leader, we can help each person to take a step back from the frenetic pace of the work place, surpass certain fears, and take off various "masks" in order to put things in perspective and look inward: each person is called to find within himself the foundations that allow him to freely engage in meaningful projects.
As coaches, our job is to help each person develop his personal goals and to firmly commit to achieving them.
