We have significant experience in group and individual leadership training and development, program facilitation and coaching. Our pioneering work in coaching has resulted in the “Leadership RoadMap©” and the “Leadership Box©,” powerful MindSpring™ tools guiding individuals into a significant understanding of their leadership behavior in a short period of time, separating effect from true cause, creating sustainable change in their life and work.
It is our experience that the arena of training and development must change. Training and development traditionally consists of information sharing and skill teaching, most times not exceeding basic level learning. The true measure of learning is when change occurs. Change occurs and is sustainable when learning is experienced at the engaged and dynamic levels.
Our innovative “Leadership RoadMap©” approach centers on the understanding that the individual possesses a model that cannot be duplicated, lost or stolen. The individual’s model is a one-of-a-kind “biology” that contains the source of their behavioral and performance outcomes. It is not contained in a book, a power point slide show, assessment or manual. These tools can be helpful but the discovery and improvement process cannot be conducted with pre-conceived academic models, concepts and principles. Our process leads the individual to understand more deeply than ever before the true dynamics that are creating the outcomes in one’s life and work, integrating mind, body and emotions.
In our work with individuals, we focus on separating effect from cause. We view behavior as a by-product of mental and perceptual patterns. Behavior is not the source of behavior. As a result, we focus less on behavior and more on identifying and tranforming the source of the behavior which resides in those perceptual fields and patterns which produce the behavior. To accomplish this MindSpring™ has created the “Leadership RoadMap©,” and the “Leadership Box©,” unique discovery processes. The object is for the individual to master their unique leadership model…not someone else’s.
Our goals in this multi-faceted “Leadership RoadMap©” process are to increase significantly the individual’s understanding of their internal leadership model, the fixed-tape-loops that drive that model, the unique barriers that are inherent in every individual model and how to create a pathway into the best of themselves and their LeaderSelf, becoming a guiding light and leadership model for the organization.
We prefer to design face-to-face, day-long or multi-day intensives versus long-distance, restricted, telephone conversations. Our process includes assessments, materials, CDs, follow-up and may involve several coaches working with an individual during the day.
MindSpring is a very successful training and development firm because of its innovative and proven track record that truly focuses on individual development. With offices in Asheville, Charlotte and Washington, DC, The Center for Integrated Leadership represents a fully integrated development process providing cutting-edge understanding of human behavior and learning processes that result in long-term sustainable change.
We believe that leaders are over-assessed and under-developed. It is time to move away from the simple examination of personality characteristics and into the more rewarding understanding of human consciousness and how change is really created. This requires a different knowledge base that goes beyond the latest book, assessment or psychological fad. While we, too, have our assessment processes, we have focused on creating powerful, experiential processes that highlight the individual’s own unique “biology,” revealing the true source of their behavior.
In 2016 MindSpring’s rich history and experiences resulted in the creation of WellSpring Wellness Center (wellspringasheville.com). The integration of WellSpring into MindSpring expands our ability to integrate mind and body, resulting in transformational learning experiences. The new building expands our campus and services as we seek to create an ever-evolving structure and systems that provide our clients with the most powerful leadership development experience available.

We believe that leaders are over-assessed and under-developed. The enormous exchange of information and knowledge that makes up the majority of training programs does not change a person’s behavior or leadership acumen.
