There is no up-sell and no extra materials to buy. The program is pretty straight forward so you know exactly what to expect regarding price and time. 

Countless reasons! Leadership development programs are not just an investment in an individual, they are an investment in your organization. In fact, according to Rocki-Lee DeWitt, Ph.D., a Professor of Management in the School of Business Administration at the University of Vermont, Leadership development is crucial to your business’ next stage of growth because it helps you and other emerging leaders in your company:

  • Develop strategies that give your business a competitive edge.
  • Figure out how your company can become more flexible, enabling you to prepare for and quickly adapt to changes in the marketplace.
  • Re-examine your business’ priorities, allowing you to pursue new opportunities and drop any efforts that aren’t worth the time or money.
  • More effectively manage your finances and growing profits, improving your business’ financial performance.
  • Implement sales and marketing strategies that help you carve out a niche in the marketplace.
  • Attract, motivate and retain employees who will be deeply engaged in supporting your goals and vision.

Absolutely! Studies show that such development improves employee efficiencies, productivity, happiness, and engagement. Who wouldn’t want that?

This program addresses personal issues as well. You’re not going to be on your game at work if you’re stressing about things going on at home. Personalized Leadership Development ensures you learn how to REALLY LEAD YOUR LIFE!


There is, and the science is rather clear about their outcomes. Choose wisely. Leadership development can either be an amazing investment or a costly waste of time. 

Yes! However, you should be aware that numerous studies demonstrate that group programs are not nearly as effective as individualized programs. This is because the approach for groups must be generalized and somewhat generic. Organizations should NOT expect the same results from a group program as they might receive from an individualized program.

That being said, I will and have worked with all sorts of groups and have a comfortable classroom available to accommodate. 

Absolutely! That’s the best part! I customize every program to fit your individual needs and industry.

Leadership development programs are not just for leadership pros. They work great for for new-hires, recently promoted, or those simply on a mission to achieve their goals. 

We have the ability to service just about any industry there is. Our position is that there really is no difference between life and leadership so our programs are pretty flexible. This is also why we have so many come to us for Personal Leadership Development.

The need for leadership is not industry specific so that’s why we customize your program to fit your needs and industry. 

Industries we have serviced so far include… 

  • Financial
  • Security / Investigations
  • Computers / I.T.
  • General Business
  • Health & Wellness
  • Insurance
  • Government
  • Non-Profits
  • Faith-Based
  • Education
  • And Many More

Great question! Some students want to deep-dive into even more ways they can use the leadership skills they have learned. We created the “Mastery” class to do just that. 

This too is customized depending on what needs to be worked on. Topics often discussed here are things like…

  • Parental Leadership
  • Sales & Influence
  • Communicating
  • Public Speaking
  • Relationships
  • Personal Health
  • Education Paths

And Much More! It’s all about learning the many ways our leadership skills can be applied in our everyday lives. 


Yes! This type of leadership development is not for everyone. A brief 15 to 30 minute consultation will let us know if you are. If by chance you are not a perfect fit, we are prepared to refer you to other programs that might be.

Payments: Students have the option to pay as they go or to pay for the entire course upfront. Discounts are often provided for full payment upfront. 

Cancellations: Both GrassFire and the Student reserve the right to postpone or cancel any class or course.

Refunds: If a student cancels before our fourth class or within two weeks (whichever comes first), we will promptly refund the paid amount. This gives the student plenty of time to determine value. However, if a student cancels anytime after the third class or after the initial two weeks, we will promptly refund any prorated / unused amount (if applicable).

That’s not a problem! You can get Leadership Development and Leadership Coaching Online. We can utilize technology such as Skype or Google Hangouts for face-to-face interactions over the web, as well as phone for support sessions and email for continued communication.

That’s not a problem at all. In-office Leadership Development and Training takes place in our office in Wichita, Kansas. However, some organizations and individuals would like for our practitioners to come to them. Just let us know what you need and where you need it and we’ll help figure out the details to make it work for you.
