Define a leadership vision that inspires your people

Today’s leaders balance relationships and results under great pressure, making difficult decisions every day. When leaders are clear about their leadership values and principles, they can more easily make tough trade-offs and lead their people intentionally and authentically. And when leaders share their values and motivators with their people, they inspire engagement, trust, and respect.

Blanchard’s Leadership Point of View™ is an immersive experience that helps leaders uncover their values, write their leadership stories, and create trusting relationships with their people.

The best leaders know what they stand for—and how to share that with others

Leadership Point of View™ (LPOV™) takes leaders on a journey of self-discovery. Along the way, they identify formative experiences that shaped how they lead. Blanchard coaches and learning partners assist them in writing a compelling narrative that turns these pivotal events into a leadership story. Leaders then share their journey with their colleagues and team members.

Sharing an LPOV™ is a deeply personal experience that wins the hearts of listeners. People gain a new perspective of their leader, a better understanding of their leader's motivations, and a renewed commitment to work.

Delivery Options to Meet Your Needs

We can deliver Leadership Point of View in person, as virtual sessions, or as self-directed online learning with live moderated sessions, so your managers can discover their leadership point of view wherever they are and whenever they have time.

In Person



2 Half-Day Instructor-Led Course

The Leadership Point of View™ in-person experience is two half-day sessions, ideally spaced two to five days apart, followed by a peer and facilitator coaching call. Use this delivery process to coach a group of leaders within an organisation to create their own LPOV™ and get feedback from their facilitator and peers before sharing it with their manager and work group.


LAUNCH — Engaging prework assignments that explain key LPOV concepts in preparation for the cohort learning experience.

Day 1

LEARN and PRACTISE — Outlines the purpose and value of a Leadership Point of View. Participants experience an LPOV™ presentation from a senior leader. They then take steps to craft a LPOV through exploration of key people and events. Participants reflect on and identify their expectations for themselves and others, then work with a partner to determine ways to demonstrate each value in action through sharing of life stories with a learning partner. 

Day 2

LEARN and PRACTISE — Participants explore what has become clear by creating their LPOV™. Participants share a draft presentation and receive feedback and peer coaching in triad groups. The day ends with tips for finalising their written LPOV™ and sharing it with others.  

Post Work

Triad Coaching Call — Required follow-up call with, ideally, three peers and the LPOV™ facilitator/coach, conducted two to three weeks after the cohort sessions, which allows each participant an opportunity to practise their Leadership Point of View presentation and receive feedback from the peer group.

Triad Coaching Call

Individual Coaching Experience

LPOV™ can be delivered as a one-on-one coaching process that includes an orientation meeting (in person or virtual) followed by a minimum of four one-on-one coaching sessions scheduled over three to six weeks. It coaches a senior-level manager, one-on-one, to create their LPOV™ in preparation for them to present it as a demonstration to a group of leaders from their organisation attending a cohort learning experience. 

This format is ideal for professionals in highly visible roles or who wish to set an example that colleagues can follow.

Online Overview

If you need more flexibility, our Learning Journey Experience is a six-week online learning journey with two live virtual sessions, individual learning activities, threaded discussions, personal reflection, and curated articles. Because the Learning Journey is a more scalable, lightweight solution that does not include coaching or peer and facilitator coaching calls, qualification is not required.
