SAL training is a holistic approach to developing the right kind of people: honest, hard working, emotionally resilient team players who are committed to the vision of your organization.

SAL Definition: Morally informed self-leadership that is action-oriented, focused on long-term results, and aimed at a continual rise in the achievement & growth of self and others.

SAL combines self-leadership (the leadership of self) and action research (a 4-step method of strategic problem solving) to address immediate objectives while simultaneously achieving personal growth for future successes.

SAL is more than a mere "technique" of self-leadership. It is a whole new way of thinking, doing, and most importantly, being, that empowers highly effective and productive self-directed organizations capable of superior performance and results.
