Improved Leadership. Competitive Advantage.
Why ELP

At Excelerated Leadership Partners—ELP, we stand solid behind the premise that the source of sustainable competitive advantage is found exclusively through great leadership.

At ELP, we are peerless. We fuse excellence and acceleration into all leadership development. Especially among high-risk/high-hazard regulated industries, we transform organizations into examples of strong leadership and unquestionable strength. Using our time-tested and best-in-class methodology, we partner with these organizations to ensure that their leaders appreciate—never depreciate—in value sooner.

We deliver results—every time.

Using our unique Strategic Performance Management (SPM) Process, we flawlessly and seamlessly align three distinct functions: Strategic Planning, Top Shelf Coaching, and Human Performance Assessment, so that your organization will be more focused and aligned, delivering sustainable and measurable performance. When we partner with your organization, leader behavior changes occur immediately, resulting in more accountability which is quickly followed by a step-jump in results.

Also, we offer one-of-a-kind ethics and honorable leadership training that has been vetted by our nation’s very top leaders to make sure your organization stays true to its mandate of serving the community with character first and always.

Far from a footnote, we continue to accumulate accolades for our offsite and retreat planning and now offer that as a consistent and remarkably attractive service. As all of us know, offsites and organizational retreats get terrible press and enjoy a lackluster reputation as failing to deliver consistent value. Not with us. We customize world-class offsites that won't ever waste a second of time, while, simultaneously sparking engagement that will surpass historical expectations by leaps and bounds.

    (i.e. documents covering 'nuclear safety culture' & 'what good leaders are known for')

Results

Within nuclear, our results speak for themselves -

  • Record setting Outage performance within 6 months of adopting ELP methodology; another station shortened outage by 2 days
  • Poorly performing station went from 4 major unplanned, annual power outages to zero the following year; cost savings of at least $7 million
  • Reduction of HU events (OPS department resets) reduced by 50% in a 12-month period
  • Recognized by name at multiple stations' NSRBs for improving behaviors and results
  • Handpicked to transform an at-risk site identified by NRC; performance trend increased, and station was removed from probation/95-003
  • Navigated 2 sites through INPO Accreditation Renewal Board; saved 1 at-risk site approximately $10 million
  • Assisted an INPO 1 station that was suffering declining performance; helped ensure that they maintained their INPO 1 designation, and position them for future strength

Within rail and transport, our contribution is the talk of the industry -

  • Partnered with one of our country's largest rail firms to break every historical safety record after a dangerous dip in safety performance
  • Through intrusive and direct coaching and training, our client delivered the most complex barge in its entire history with exceptional safety and quality standards that others aspire to
  • Walked hand-in-hand with one of our nation's premier railroads to ruthlessly extract waste resulting in a 40% increase in EBITDA

"I can't think of another consultancy that impacted our performance more than ELP. Their methods are one-of-a-kind. I've yet to find another process that drives focus and alignment as much as ELP's Strategic Performance Management. What is truly revolutionary is that they make it so simple. Simple to understand. Simple to follow. Simple to execute. Results are guaranteed."

"With their expertise, we crafted simple, strategic plans which are one page in length, yet clearly define the focus we need over the next year to be successful. This process not only improved the performance and ability of our 1100 employee team to meet the demands and expectations of our company, it drove us to a level of performance where we consistently and routinely exceeded them."
