I see Pathways to Leadership as a gift to individuals in the organization. It brings together the company [values] and leadership [behaviors] and brings them alive with practical approaches to interact every day. It is a mind shift and changes people’s lives both inside and outside of work. It truly gives people the skills to be their best every day.

“Verus Global had a significant impact on the transformational change [our division has] achieved (output, speed, employee retention, engagement surveys) over the past 4 years. I do not believe we would have achieved anything close to what we did without the Pathways to Leadership tools and the additional help the Verus Global team provided to over 100 of our associates since 2013.”

“I … have seen 1st-hand the commitment to transformation that Verus enables. While the pressure on my immediate team has not reduced (some would say that it has increased), my team’s potential and greatness has been unlocked and we are delivering in spite of the many challenges that we face and I can say without a doubt that our success can be linked to our learnings gained through the Pathways to Leadership Process.
