Why Join our PSLD Program?

  • Discover and implement solutions to meet your most daunting challenges of public service leadership

  • Learn a systematic approach to developing responsible, sustainable leadership

  • Recognize and deal with self sabotage, creative problem solving, goal achievement and effective communication

  • Align personal and organizational goals for yourself and your people

Effective Personal Leadership

Effective Personal Leadership (EPL) is the foundation of the PSLD workshops. It is implemented over a 9 month period through a series of bi-weekly, virtual conference sessions facilitated by a team of subject matter experts.

Materials include an interactive Lesson Manual and an Personal/Organizational Plan of Action. These tools help you reinforce and apply the concepts of this program and the peer input you receive at each session. You determine the results that you want and then manage those results through the creation and tracking of measurable performance criteria.

In addition to working on your own goals, each session will have one member of the group present a current challenge for analysis and feedback by fellow participants and a subject matter expert facilitator.

Between sessions, you’ll be listening to program materials (streaming, CD or download), working on your short term goals, building a Personal and Organizational Plan of Action for the future, and applying proven principles of goal achievement in your real-world lives, both personal and organizational.

Beyond the group session interactions, facilitators are available for more personal one-on-one time via phone, video conference and email contact, arranged at mutually convenient times. Depending on geographic factors, if future safety from Covid infection allows, we can meet in person.

As a bonus, you will complete our Profile Evaluation Job-Match assessment, which provides valuable feedback on six aptitudes and ten dimensions of personality, as they relate to performance in the demanding role that you fulfill.


During and upon completion of the Public Sector Leadership Development program, you will:

  • Understand the distinctions between Personal and Organizational Leadership and demonstrate the appropriate behaviors and performance

  • Address and resolve issues inhibiting optimal organizational performance

  • Create a system of Personal and Organizational goals that are aligned for mutual benefit

  • Be able to effectively identify, confront and resolve interpersonal conflicts

  • Enhance your ability to lead others toward achievement of clearly defined goals

  • Have the clarity of purpose to define “What Matters Most” in your personal and business lives

  • Gain knowledge and tools that enable you to hire and retain the best people for each job

  • Use tools that help you to consistently have your people involved, engaged and productive

  • Learn new approaches to address your challenges.

  • Form new relationships with peers for mutual benefit.

  • Enhance your organizations overall effectiveness through goal directed action.


Richard works miracles. Not only does he help you grow your business, but he also helps you become the best leader you can be and provides therapy as a perk. I wouldn’t be where I am without Richard and, by default, RSL.

Paola West, CEO


I have had multiple interactions with consultants of this type and Rich Lewine’s hands-on work and support are the most effective I have encountered.  He was productive with me and my staff in reaching of objectives for which he was engaged.  I have also worked alongside of Rich Lewine in volunteer work situations (board of directors/committees) and found him an excellent team member with high energy and engaged in the projects assigned.

Paul Mercado, VP


Richard is not your typical “business coach”; he is much more like a sports team coach.  Tells you like it is.  Richard’s years and years of experience and his own investments into his field make him a TERRIFIC consultant and organizational coach.  Engage with him only if you’re serious about changing and developing yourself and/or your organization.  

Linda Kuppersmith, CEO


Rich was the consummate professional in uncovering ways I could improve my goal-setting process. He is well worth the investment of time and treasure”.

Sal Provenzano, VP


Richard is fantastic. Working with him required some real soul searching, and it was at   times difficult, but the return was incredible. I have used the skills I learned in every aspect of my life. It was an outstanding experience.”

CEO/President (Retired)

Mentoring and employee growth is important to a thriving organization. Richard has assisted us with current and future leaders at the City of Pompano Beach. His experience helps him cut to the chase when working one on one with staff to point out strengths and areas that need improvement. Plus he is a great guy to work with!
