The Leaders Success Compass™

Its Four Sides® of Leadership consists of a framework of models and tools. These are dedicated at the four key situations that a leader is faced in their daily work with their team. Communicating the path and the goals for the team, deciding on the priorities of their organisation, developing people to take action and following up on the progress and achievements.
This is summarized in the Leader’s Success Compass™. The Leader’s Success Compass™ gives the leader orientation when taking their team on the journey from where they are today, getting together as a group, to where they need to be in the future, delivering according to the expectations and reaching the goal.

This is summarized in the Leader’s Success Compass™. The Leader’s Success Compass™ gives the leader the exact position, explaining where the leader is and where the team is on their journey to success.

Take a look at the four sides of the Leader’s Success Compass™. Decide for yourself what your preferred position is and which position you need to develop more.

  1. The NORTH, Agree on the common direction or path forward
  2. The EAST, Organise the group and decide on the team’s priorities
  3. The SOUTH, Develop the people to act in line with the priorities
  4. The WEST,  Follow up on the progress and past achievements

More about Coach Colin

Coach Colin and leadership

Colin Luthardt

Colin is a certified coach, strategic interventionist, the founder of Its Four Sides®, speaker and author of ‘Speaking the Language of Leadership’. He is an award-winning executive trainer, a marketing and sales strategist with a career in different international management positions with large corporations. Sales, marketing and business development has always been attracting him. However, he realized that success in these fields is only combined with personal development too.

Combining his desire to grow and contribute, Colin changed his career and successfully implemented a number of global change programs, like a corporate strategy program and an award-winning international sales training program with a multi-national corporation.

Since then he has invested in business and personal development tools such has the highly recommendable coaching training through Robbins-Madanes-Training. This Strategic Interventionist Coaching Training is run by the worlds number 1 life coach Tony Robbins and the renowned family therapist Cloe Madanes. Colin has always been keen on pushing boundaries, pioneering new areas, and breaking barriers to contribute to the success of others. This made it possible for him as a coach to accept and run a two year coaching and training program with a mid-size company, where coaching the managers to become leaders became a true success.

After this period Colin researched their success in great detail. He revealed and designed the underlying patterns and structures called Its Four Sides® of Leadership and he wrote the book called ‘Speaking the Language of Leadership’ about this company. This book is a leadership book of another kind. It is not based on Colin’s own successes, but it is created around this true success story. It is a collection of true the observations, the reaction of the people in these situations, and the description of the underlying psychological patterns. This true story is written as a novel, showing how coaching the managers to lead their teams became a great success and become nearly 50% more effective.

In a more recent phase Colin researched the sources of personal energy. He developed Its Four Sides of Personal Energy. This concept has allowed him to balance his energy levels during the day. This is very important, as our modern business lives become more connected, more scattered and more global. Being aware of what steals and what fills your personal energy levels makes you more resilient and purposeful every day.

Management is doing things right; leadership is doing the right thing. –Peter F. Drucker
