Thayer Leader Development Group (TLDG) starts building leaders with a simple premise: character is foundational to your ability to lead. Combine this with knowledge and action, and you unleash the “whole” leader every organization needs. This approach has been proven by over two hundred years of application in the United States Army and is the reason we make our home at The Historic Thayer Hotel on the grounds of West Point. At TLDG, like nowhere else, you’ll experience the legacy of military leadership learning from those who have powered and led a nation. Today, this legacy can empower organizations to adapt and thrive. TLDG designs programs to navigate the crossroads faced by both individuals and organizations so they can aspire to their goals. Individuals are trained to better themselves – and, in turn, their teams – transforming their approach to organizational collaboration. Within this framework, leaders become a powerful tool within their companies, activating a game-changing performance culture in clear reach of its goals.

TLDG helps organizations with leadership and culture creation to better handle business challenges in a rapidly-evolving business climate. Each program is jointly co-created with senior leaders within the organization to meet their intent and challenges. TLDG Faculty  members are top academic scholars, grounded in cutting-edge empirical research, and experts in leadership and ethics content, many of whom are graduates of West Point, have taught leaders of character at West Point and in other Army institutions, and have significant military experience.

Graduates of TLDG are smart, nimble, decisive and adaptable – and create differentiation in their world, and ours, by acting opportunistically, intelligently and above all, ethically.
