Leadership Development

Do you struggle to engage with others effectively?

Do you understand the importance of a healthy organizational culture?

Are you equipped to lead in both normal times, as well as adverse conditions?

You manage things; you lead people. Leadership effectiveness does not happen with the flip of a switch. It must be practiced and cultivated over time.

You can increase your effectiveness

How will we get you there?

At Rising Sun, you’ll increase effectiveness through a philosophy which emphasizes the following ideals:


You’ll put others’ needs first; behind your own wants, needs, hopes, and dreams; utilizing a selfless, outward-focused approach. Immense value will be found in the importance of your employees, customers, and other stakeholders. You’ll discover newfound strength in your ability to influence and persuade others, setting the stage for them to follow willingly, not forcefully.      


You’ll learn the importance of concepts like feedback, dialogue, coaching, and encouragement. We’ll help you be diligent and intentional in these practices as they’ll play a critical role in your overall approach.    


We’ll help you champion an environment that breeds discussion, creativity, open-mindedness, and learning. However, this culture is not absent of high standards, expectations, and accountability. As a leader, you will set those standards and represent the most significant and influential example of the organization’s culture.  


As you humble yourself, you’ll establish trust, create better relationships, and resolve conflict. You’ll develop a mentality for learning, encourage ideas in addition to your own, and give credit where it’s due.  


Today’s leaders cannot merely react to adversity. You’ll learn to anticipate it, prepare for it, and overcome it when it inevitably arrives. With an awareness of personality, a desire to learn from prior experiences, and an unwavering intent to develop additional skills, you’ll become a better problem solver, decision maker, and change advocate.
