Free Training: Leadership Secrets of 'Top 1%' CEOs

CEOs and Senior Teams:

Work better, together.

Discover how to build alignment, accountability, and trust in 90 days (or less)!

You’re the CEO, the President, the Managing Director.

A committed, high-achieving leader who knows that the success of your organization depends on your ability to make progress against your goals every day.

And not just any progress but progress on the business' most important strategic challenges and opportunities.

Without this ability to execute, your business is in trouble.

Sands Leadership can help.

The truth is that most leadership training and development programs don't work.

"Discover your strengths." "Measure what matters." "Start with why." It's all interesting, insightful, and well-intentioned, but, unfortunately, these programs rarely lead to lasting change.

Let's face it; there’s a huge difference between organizing an entertaining team-building session and forever changing the habits and behaviors of your team.

I just had an amazing sales call,

I cannot wait for the next one! I was able to help my client step into her feminine energy and really visualize it.

“Fifth Wall was growing rapidly, and we looked to Ben to help us drive alignment across the organization. Ben worked with us to create an operating system that has set Fifth Wall up for long-term, sustainable, repeatable success. Ben has a unique ability to connect with all team members, discern what motivates them and why, and connect that mosaic of motivations into a complete whole so that all buy into a common vision and strategy. Ben has helped set up Fifth Wall for success, and it was a privilege to work with him.”

I run a global, PE-backed industrial service business serving a uniquely large and diverse global market. Our opportunity is incredible, and so are the challenges! Over the past few years, Ben has helped me and my leadership team build systems to drive greater clarity, alignment, and accountability across our global team. Personally, Ben serves as a sounding board, a thought partner and creative catalyst — helping me to lead in a way that is not only impactful, but also consistent with my mission to build a life-giving, high performing organization. I can say with confidence that IGS is both healthier and more profitable due to our work with Ben and the team at Sands Leadership.

Rich Crawford

CEO, Integrated Global Services

I hired Ben to help my senior leadership team rethink our approach to engaging their teams. At the time the organization was navigating a volatile business environment, and we needed to make some changes to the way we were working together. Ben's 8-week coaching program was simple and efficient — helping us all take action to become healthier, more focused, and more intentional; improving both the way we collaborate and lead. I highly recommend Ben's coaching program to any leader looking to more quickly build alignment and trust within their team.

Travis Warren

SVP, Blackbaud

I met Ben as I was assessing several options during a key inflection point in my career. He helped me to “zoom out”, serving as an important sounding board and thought partner. Following my decision to start Knox Lane, he also worked with my founding team, helping me lay the foundation for the healthy, high-performance culture that we enjoy today.

John Bailey

Founder & Managing Partner, Knox Lane

At Omatic, one of our values is to “make people awesome”, so we are always looking for opportunities to invest in our people and leaders. We engaged Ben to work with our team members to further enhance their leadership and execution effectiveness. Ben’s “Breakthrough” coaching program helped our team better understand themselves and others. This increased our alignment, accountability, and trust and made it easier to get our most important work done!

Ken Haigh

COO + CTO, Omatic Software

"I've got 1,000 families counting on me... With Ben's support, I've been able to create a bold vision for the company, get people excited about it, and build a culture around it. As a result, we're operating faster and more efficiently than ever before…despite constant market challenges."

Jeff Davoud

CEO, Old Dominion Industries

Our company has big goals, and I reached out to Ben to get help managing the many competing demands on my time. While his coaching and counsel have been invaluable in helping me to become a healthier, more effective, and more focused leader, it's done more than that — it's helped me to better understand who I am and how to lead in a more values-aligned way. My team has noticed the changes — and so have my kids! If you are a leader looking to improve your health, focus, and efficiency, I highly recommend working with Ben.
