Leadership Development

St. James Xavier Group improves companies through leadership development. We customize and facilitate training workshops for individuals, teams, and organizations using a wide array of assessment and training tools. We use leadership engagement assessment tools such as Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) Step I and Step II, Intercultural Development Inventory (IDI), and 360 Feedback which are all research-based and data-driven evaluations that are created for individuals and organizations. The data from these tools will assist in identifying the strengths and areas of opportunity for your organization and leadership teams. The tools will empower managers to identify focus areas to develop top performers. St. James Xavier Group’s leadership development program will also identify opportunities for novice leaders. Creating clear communication, developing quality leadership, and providing strategies that will sustain a strong team and business community is the essence of St. James Xavier Group’s leadership program.
