people are messy. LET provides the essential skills for solving people problems

Leaders know that it takes more than technical ability and business savvy to be successful in today's business environment. The ability to communicate and deal with conflicts effectively is equally, if not more, important. Leader Effectiveness Training (L.E.T.) is the foundation of what Gordon Institute calls the People Productivity Process. L.E.T. teaches a concrete, actionable set of tools and skills that reduce conflict in the workplace, increase time on task and measurably reduce the costs of people problems. Through our training, your organization’s leaders learn, practice, and understand when and how to apply a powerful set of tools that measurably influence their workers’ behaviors, habits and beliefs. The result is a more productive, efficient and fulfilling workplace. Unlike other training programs, L.E.T. is based on pioneering research by Dr. Thomas Gordon, the founder of GTI, who created the foundational systems and tools that comprise L.E.T. The program was designed from the ground up to match the way human beings function, with an understanding of the psychological needs that drive people to behave the way they do.
