Empowering Leaders. Strengthening Communities.
After a decade of building leaders at Intrigue, our clients started asking us to bring what we do to their businesses. This led to the development of a model that would use tangible mechanisms to help our clients bring Purpose, Culture, and, of course, Leadership to life inside their organizations.
We are focused on helping leaders grow and making our communities stronger. If we can help the leaders in our communities, their organizations will grow. Communities filled with growing organizations thrive.
We believe that, by providing business leaders with a voice, they will have a better opportunity to be heard and get attention in their marketplace/community.
How We Develop Leaders
This is a top down process. The leadership of the organization must be the starting point to build a strong culture.
We help our clients by looking inwards. We focus on Purpose, Vision, Culture, Standards and Team Orientation.
Entrepreneurs and leaders are the ones that dare greatly and seek to change the world. We exist to empower these people so they can make a difference in our communities.
Many years ago, we watched a video by Robin Sharma, where he shared the idea that if you want to beat your competitors, you need to build leaders more quickly than they do. This piqued our interest in leadership, and led us to read more books on leadership from other great leaders:
- Jim Collins
- John C. Maxwell
- Malcolm Gladwell
- Simon Sinek
- Daniel Pink
- Dan & Chip Heath
- Andy Stanley
- And many others!
We learned that leadership is influence, nothing more or less. True leaders lead themselves, serve others, and win the hearts of their followers before asking for their hands.
If we focus on becoming leaders and empowering the leaders in our communities, we can help turn our communities into incredible places.

What is Leader Building?
Knowledge is power, but only when it is applied. That is the basis for our Leader Building program.
This is a process that acts as the North Star for an organization. From new product and service development, to communication strategies, to managing each team member inside the organization.
With clarity comes execution. Knowing where you are going is the first step to getting there. In our experience, vision is one of the largest influencers on an organization’s ability to achieve a goal. This is a facilitative exercise that helps leadership bring precise clarity to where the organization is going and when it will get there.
This is multi-day exercise that spans the course of a few months. The process helps organizations authentically define cultural values within the leadership team and organization in an actionable way.
This is about defining key behaviours that support observable cultural values. This helps brings culture to life in an organization.
We believe that learning is accomplished through reinforcement and accountability. We will stay with you along the way to ensure that your initiatives don’t fizzle out, but continue to grow over time.
