Leading the Way is a free ezine published by Consulting Resource Group International, Inc, Copyright 2008.


Our purpose is to enrich people’s lives by increasing their success and improving their results—whatever their focus or interest. For the past 26 years, CRG’s mandate has been to provide resources that transform individuals, teams, organizations, students, and families.

We believe our resources engage and include the learner in the process—they are not tests or processes that a professional does to a person. As a company we believe in your success. To that end we have created the Secrets of Success™ Journal. The articles and resources nestled between its covers are designed to not only enrich your life, but to allow you the opportunity to enrich the lives of many.

Within the next two weeks, we will be launching a special Secrets of Success Journal Campaign. We would like your help. 

  • You will receive a special partnerlink designed to be used as an information and marketing piece for your clients and anyone you think will benefit from the information it contains. 

  • For every download that takes place via your partnerlink, we will reward you with a $1 credit that can be used for any CRG product. For example, if you have 400 people download the SOS Journal, you will receive a $400 credit to be used on CRG products or training.

  • We will also let you know how you can earn triple-credit by sending out hard copies of the Journal to your database. 

Watch for the upcoming announcement. In the meantime here is the link you need to download your own copy.


If and ONLY IF you are ready . . .
Learn about measurement strategies, resources, and action steps that will offer amazing freedom, clarity, and direction for you, your clients, and your organization.

August's Focus on Training

One of CRG’s valued clients is Coastal Pacific Xpress. Dr. Doug Perkins, Director of People for the company, has taken a number of the company’s senior staff through our Leadership Skills Inventory.

Headquartered in Cloverdale, BC, Coastal Pacific Xpress has evolved from one truck and trailer in 1985 to 160 trucks and 250 trailers today, making it one of the fastest-growing, temperature-controlled truckload carriers in the province. In fact, the company serves major markets throughout North America.

“Trucking often attracts lower-skilled people,” states company owner Jim Mickey. “Factors combine to create what I call a ‘stupid business.’ You have a $160,000 truck; you put on a trailer worth $70,000 holding $50,000 of cargo; and you trust a guy with no competence. How dumb is this?" 

To tackle the problem, Mickey said CPX set out to cherry-pick the best people in the industry. 

Enter Doug Perkins and CRG assessments.

Doug gives Leadership Skills Inventory–Self to all CPX managers. Each manager gives Doug the names of five appropriate people. Doug distributes the LSI–Others to those individuals. To protect their anonymity, those who complete the LSI–Others tools return them directly to Doug—not to the manager. 

  1. After Doug receives the five LSI–Others for each manager, he gives the assessments (without the five names) to the respective manager for review. 
  2. Doug averages all five scores, then compares the averaged scores of the LSI–Others against the manager’s own scores on the Leadership Skills Inventory–Self
  3. Doug and the manager work through the three highest and the three lowest scores in each category. 
  4. If the manager received scores that demonstrate she is capable of teaching others about a specific topic, Doug asks the manager to teach her assistant how to train staff in that topic. 
  5. Where the manager scores low and wants to improve, Doug teaches or provides resources to help the manager in those areas. 

Doug sees the Leadership Skills Inventory as a helpful coaching tool to complement the other CRG resources that Coastal Pacific Xpress is using.

The Leadership Skills Inventory has two separate assessments. 

  • The “Self" (LSI–S) provides the leader with a tool for assessing his or her effectiveness in self-management, communications, counseling, problem-management skills, consulting, and versatility. 
  • The leader distributes the “Others" (LSI–O) assessment to key associates and subordinates for feedback on his or her effectiveness in various critical leadership skills areas. 

In the LSI (for Self and Others), a total of 56 transformational skills are spread over five sections. Once these tools are completed and processed, leaders will understand what they need to do to increase their leadership skills. 

Together these two tools will help all members of the organization understand the skills and roles required to lead effectively. 

The Leadership Skills Inventory is a skills-based transformational leadership development tool for leaders in business, education, government, and the community―to help people understand the importance of creating leadership environments. It’s easy to read, easy to understand, and easy to complete. Self-scoring and self-interpreting, the LSI–S is both informative and personally revealing. 

As with all CRG’s assessments, space is given for each participant to put together a game plan to develop and work on improving his or her overall effectiveness. 

For each of the low-scoring areas, participants will identify the new behavior they prefer for themselves, their commitment, and/or the training they will work through.

People interested in increasing their Leadership effectiveness will benefit from working through the Leadership Skills Inventory.
