The BLG Pragmatic Leadership™ Model

The Pragmatic Leadership™ model 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:

In the context of shifting market demands, pressure for disruptive innovation, new C-suite strategy and visions, success depends on the skills of rapid and agile execution.

Through facilitative discussions and interviews, BLG engages with key stakeholders to align business aspirations and organizational structures with today’s leadership talent needs. Designing a leadership development program through a process of deep collaboration assures focus on those behavioral skills most consistent with unique business challenges.
