Organizational Excellence Leader Lab

Join us on the Road to Excellence!

The Roadmap to Organizational Excellence

"Excellent" caliber businesses are growing and expanding, and constantly moving beyond comfort zone to adjust to changing technology and market conditions.

Are you a...

  • Business Owner who wants to get out of “doing” your business and get on to “leading” your business?
  • Entrepreneur who wants to grow quickly, and avoid the “headaches of growth”?
  • CEO who seeks a group of growth-minded peers for support with achieving their grand vision for their business?

You’ll want to call us at 403-457-1507 or book a call to discover if the Organizational Excellence Leader Lab is the right fit for you.

The Organizational Excellence Leader Lab is not for everyone. Only growth-oriented leaders with a “give-to-get” mindset will be accepted.

Limited seats are available in our Leader Lab. 



Moving from "at–risk" to "excellence"?

The focus of the Organizational Excellence Leader Lab is to support our clients in moving from "at–risk" to "excellence".

The Leadership role is Critical to Success of any Organization.

Members of the Organizational Excellence Leader Lab commit to monthly sessions for at least 12 months. Sessions are based on a peer advisory format and Sandler’s expertise in human learning and development.

All businesses can be classified into four categories:


  • Excellent

    These companies are always improving their present situation—and always looking forward. For leaders, and everyone else at these organizations, excellence is a way of life.

  • Well-Managed

    These organizations are nevertheless vulnerable, because they have not yet created a management culture in which organizational excellence is second nature, regardless of personnel changes.

  • Average

    These businesses are doing well enough to reasonably satisfy the owners and management, but they are vulnerable to regressing back to the at-risk level.

  • At-Risk

    These businesses typically revolve around their leader, without this leader the business or department may suffer greatly.

Excellence is a Direction not a Destination

The Leadership for Organizational Excellence model makes Organizational Excellence the basis of your company’s long-term growth plan. The program, which has been tested and proven in multiple industries, works because it is a sequential, continuous, repeating process. The heart of this powerful leadership model is known as the 6 P’s.
