      Whether you’re a startup creating a desired leadership culture to attract a talented workforce, an established firm looking to develop your leaders, or a whole company looking for a culture makeover, here’s how Marcel and his team can help you and your organization.

      Leadership Coaching
      Leaders and managers are often coached on how to act instead of how to be. This “behavior modification” approach is not sustainable but produces only superficial, short-term results. To be forthright, Marcel Schwantes and his team will only work with leaders intentionally committed to self-discovery and developing authenticity. We want them to fully understand who they are — their fears, limitations, strengths and gifts — and how to best use their new awareness to maximize their human-centered leadership to influence people and businesses for good. Length of coaching engagements vary: we offer six-month, nine-month, annual or multi-year options.
      The Immersion (Deep Dive 1 on 1)

      Immersion is a one-on-one co-active experience personally facilitated by Marcel Schwantes. Leaders will discover the core aspects of what makes a good leader so they can elevate their game. This is a “deep dive” journey to get you to the center of yourself, remove obstacles in the way of growing you and your business, get clear on what’s really going on so you can show up with full awareness and authenticity. Similar to coaching, but more conversational and free-flowing for exploration and problem-solving, the leader will go through a process of self-discovery, mentoring, and personal guidance to break through the barriers that limit you and your potential. Immersions can happen in:

      • 1-hour Zoom calls (weekly).
      • Half-day immersions (onsite or virtual)
      • Full-day immersions (retreat-style, in-person)
      Keynote Speeches and Workshops

      Marcel Schwantes speaks passionately about topics like servant leadership, people-empowerment, and creating human-centric and human work cultures of high performance. He draws from convincing research, case studies, stories and illustrations that create tremendous value and lead to results. Marcel’s keynotes and workshops are highly interactive and experiential for audience participation.

      What People Are Saying

      Leadership from the Core is a must have for any organization. Their training is a unique, inspiring and empowering way of learning. This session brought me and my 60+ leaders back to the basics of leadership. Rediscovering our leadership styles, and learning how to optimize our talents to serve each other and the lives that are placed in our hands was the highlight of our year!

      Leadership from the Core’s Marcel Schwantes is a gifted coach with a wealth of business background. He is focused, not on how much he can make, but how effectively he can serve his business clients who aspire to being premier servant leaders. The kicker is that he models the inner attributes which make servant leadership possible.

      My coach’s insights make you think deeper about the situation you are in then you would probably been able to do on your own, which is a tremendous help when trying to speedily solve your problem or improve your current state of being. He is a natural teacher, a natural coach and I cannot recommend him highly enough.

      Marc Van Hoek, Business Development Manager at Senn Delaney

      Leadership from the Core was a great resource for me in my career. I was able to take what my coach taught me to further develop some skills that most certainly will help for many years to come. I would definitely recommend them if you want to get ahead or just learn who you are and how to relate to others better.

      Trent Rhoads, General Manager, Amerilife and Health Services

      Our team of eleven managers has begun working together effectively and efficiently. Their meetings are productive and lead to positive changes within our organization. They have learned how to communicate with each other as well as their employees. Through Leadership from the Core’s coaching and training, the team has learned how to define their mission, motivate their employees to get behind the mission, and to make decisions that are mission oriented. They are a much more positive force within the organization.
