Agenda Mover®

Pragmatic Leadership®  applies an agenda mover model that was developed by Professor Samuel B. Bacharach, Co-Founder of Bacharach Leadership Group (BLG), during a span of 30 years, fusing academic rigor and real-world relevance. Bacharach, the McKelvey-Grant Emeritus Professor at Cornell University, decoded the skills by which pragmatic leaders break organizational inertia and move agendas to get things done. This framework was enhanced by psychotherapist, executive coach and BLG Co-Founder, Yael S. Bacharach, whose work on coaching skills has been critical in helping leaders manage their teams and translate ideas into execution. BLG’s proven methodology, outlined in the Pragmatic Leadership®  book series, is about leading for discovery and delivery across 4 critical competencies
