A leader’s most important relationships are within their team. Whether on the clock or in their free time, your team members determine both the success and reputation of your organization.

“As I complete my role on the VOLT Executive Committee and focus towards the SVP-Elect for Student and Early Career Development, I know that I personally can take what I learned from [North of Center’s] lessons and both practice and share them so that our groups can successfully work together and complete their goals.”

Student & Early Career Development at ASME

North of Center’s research grounded, field-tested Communication-Based Leadership (CBL) framework guides all our leader development, organizational communication, and public engagement work.

Both a process and a philosophy, CBL’s foundation is set by four cornerstone truths:

  • It is impossible to lead without communicating
  • A leader’s communication capacity is finite
  • Leadership is about relationships
  • Enduring leadership success requires trust

As a process, CBL provides a path to credible, ethical, trusted organizational communication; as a philosophy it will guide you along that path.


North of Center will unleash innovation and creativity throughout your team by helping you:

  • Align your business practices with your organizational values
  • Improve communication within and between your teams
  • Empower team members to represent your organization at any time
  • Foster trust through open dialogue and candid feedback among team members
  • Strengthen integration of cross-functional and distributed teams

No pressure. No obligation. Just a good conversation.
