Developing Leaders



Here are a handful of projects I've worked on over the years. I've provided a brief description and the solutions for each one. Anyone who's ever worked on a project, program, or initiative understands that it requires various internal stakeholders to buy in, support, and advocate for them to "succeed." 


In this special article, I talk about some common issues and challenges in leadership development training. I also share best practices drawn from evidence-based resources and lessons learned from my own experiences to help you avoid missteps as you design leadership training in your own organizations.


Steve Nguyen, Ph.D., is an Organizational Development Leader. He partners with senior & executive leaders on ways to improve human behaviors in the workplace and on how to make people and organizations more effective. As a business advisor and organizational development expert, he provides expertise and guidance around learning, organizational, and talent development solutions, and leads the strategizing, designing, execution, and evaluation of employee, leadership, and organizational development workshops, initiatives, and programs.


“Steve is energetic, tenacious, professional, and deeply talented. He is a strong facilitator, and healthfully challenges everyone to push themselves to learn and contribute. He creates a safe and engaging environment to learn in. His abilities to connect to professionals on a human level, and ignite creativity and curiosity while inspiring growth are second to none. Steve is one of the most genuine people I have ever had the pleasure to encounter. I learned a great deal from him, and would sign my name to him any day of the week. When you add Steve Nguyen to your team, you will quickly realize you have lightning in a bottle and the sky is the limit.”
