Leadership & Wellness
Google Leadership on the web and you’ll be overrun with theories, biographies, styles, personality tests, and case studies. Some of this is incredible information to be aware of, but your leadership approach, or the leadership values within your organization, will depend on what resonates with you, what makes sense for you context, and what your objectives are as an organization and as a leader. Leadership is a process to be designed, tested, and improved. Let’s build a leadership education program that makes sense for you and your organization.
And regardless of what avenue we take, the Rocky Mountain Innovation Lab believes deeply that fostering leaders who discover a sense of balance with many aspects of their life, are high quality leaders. So in leadership development we integrate conversations and practices of wellness that matter.
Let’s embrace the cliché for a moment that the only constant in life and business is change. Since that is the case, let’s grow your ability to not only manage change but to master it. Using the process of design, our first step is to help you clarify your vision, whether that’s for your business, the program you oversee, a single objective within the larger plan, or simply your individual aspirations. What’s that incredible 4 am idea that you want to transform into your break through solution?
Together, we’ll then build a strategy that carefully identifies the key steps you’ll implement to reach your objectives, and we’ll spend time determining which of those steps are the most essential. As you implement that change, we’ll be there to offer coaching and guidance about how to troubleshoot challenges that arise, when to shift course or pivot slightly, and how to celebrate meaningful successes that build momentum. Change happens, are you ready for it?
This is about facilitating teams that succeed. High functioning teams are often the key ingredient to improving work place culture, reaching your goals as an organization and bringing those big visions to fruition. Even with the right people in the room though, teams can go awry: egos get in the way, interpersonal issues arise, and roles and responsibilities grow hazy. Jogging your memory a bit?
By offering on-going coaching, team evaluation and reflection, sound internal project management, and refined communication practices, teams of volunteers, nonprofit boards, new professionals, and seasoned professionals achieve the results necessary, and do so in a way that builds goodwill and human capacity.
What’s learned in job training programs, college classrooms, and even in firsthand experience is key to any professional’s success. But sometimes the other essential skills of building professional rapport, working in teams, developing a strong work ethic, and committing to a project or organization, are lost in the wide-eyed aspirations of new professionals.
Turnover is costly for both the individual employee and the organization. But it doesn’t have to happen. The Rocky Mountain Innovation Lab is passionate about helping new talent find their place in the workplace, and helping organizations get the most from their young professionals.

Matt helped me adjust some of my own thinking (in a good way) about how I approach my role at work to become not just more efficient but more effective. I look forward to our coaching sessions as I always find myself driving home with a renewed sense of focus about my career goals.
