I help business leaders build healthier, higher-performing teams.

Welcome To Sands Leadership

Over the last 12 years, I've been helping business leaders around the world create healthier, happier, high-performing teams.

Sure, this About Page shares a little bit about me, but it's really about YOU.

It's about how you can leverage the knowledge and experience I've gained over the years to finally break through your leadership challenges and achieve the results that you and your organization have been looking for.

How It All Started.

Ever since I was a little kid I've been obsessed with efficiency; making and doing things better, faster, cheaper...

In fact, I thought everyone was that way. And then I graduated college and got my first taste of the 'real world.'

Everywhere I looked I saw people working their tails off, but without a clear sense of purpose or direction.

Instead of efficiently executing on their dreams, many of my peers and colleagues were fearfully, and frantically, working up the ladder of success without knowing if the ladder was actually propped against the right wall.

I was devastated. I did not want to live, or work, this way.

Facing Big Challenges.

As most people do, I faced some incredible challenges as I worked to discover a healthier, happier way to live and work.

I quickly realized that the lack of direction and purpose I observed among my colleagues and friends was endemic to the global business environment.

Despite spending thousands of hours, and millions of dollars, on strategic planning initiatives, most companies still struggled to consistently, and profitably, hit their goals.

Even more, the constant changes to the company's strategic direction only led to more busyness and burnout within the business.

It was a vicious cycle.

CEO Secrets of The 'Top 1%'

In this free workshop, Ben Sands shares 4 surprising strategies of the world's best CEOs to drive healthy, high performance in any business environment.

Building The Expertise.

That's when I started searching for 'bright spots.'

I started looking for leaders and teams that, against all odds, deliver consistently great business outcomes in a healthy, sustainable way.

When I interviewed the CEOs and senior leaders of these "Top 1%" organizations, some clear patterns emerged.

Most notably, they focused more on systems than strategy.

They embraced the inherent uncertainty of the world and developed a set of habits, practices, and beliefs that would lead to great results in any business environment.

That's when I knew I had found my calling: To help teams learn to work in a more efficient, profitable, innovative and consistent way.

To create happier, healthier, higher-performing teams and organizations.

Helping YOU Succeed.

Today, I work with values-driven, ambitious leaders (like you!) how to build and implement smarter, more efficient, more agile systems within their organizations.

I did the research.

I ran the experiments.

I captured all of the best practices and lessons learned so that you don't have to make the same mistakes as the leaders that have come before you.

And now I serve as a guide for leaders working to close the 'performance gap' in their organizations today.

I have developed a proprietary system of training, coaching, technology and accountability that allows leaders to embed new, healthier behaviors across even large teams.

And we do it fast. In 90 days (or less)!

Your Time Is Now.

Today, I have the honor of working with a global community of happy, healthy, mission-focused leaders.

These men and women not only deliver consistently great business outcomes but, even more, create stronger families, healthier relationships and more resilient communities simply based on how they run their business.

And I want the same for you...

Imagine if you finally broke through...

What if you were able to (finally!) get everybody on your team rowing in the same direction, focused on the same goals, and living up to the same standards of performance and behavior...once and for all?

How would it feel to no longer go to bed worried about things left undone?

How would it feel to no longer wake up anxious about the challenges the day would bring?

How would it feel to be free of any doubt that you are the right person to lead this organization forward?

How would it feel to become the clear, confident, charismatic leader that you've always wanted to be?

My guess? Pretty darn good.

I hired Ben to help me build greater clarity and alignment across my senior leadership team. At the time the organization was navigating a volatile business environment, and we need to make some changes to the way we were working together. Ben's 8-week coaching program was simple and efficient — helping us all take action to become healthier, more focused, and more intentional; improving both the way we collaborate and lead. I highly recommend Ben's coaching program to any leader looking to quickly build alignment and trust within their team.
