About Us

Liderança (lē′dər an sa) means “leadership” in Portuguese


The great explorers in history launched into unknown waters seeking a new world of great riches. In every journey, the Navigator on board assessed the conditions of the sea, the quality of the crew, the direction of the wind, and the goals defined by the Captain in order to arrive at their destination. That’s why we formed Liderança Group and named our business transformation experts Navigators. Unlike most professional services firms that give you a map and launch you out to sea, we serve as part of your crew, helping you navigate the course to achieve your goals.

How We Work

When you engage with a Liderança Navigator, you will receive a proven, step-by-step process and an attitude rooted in positivity, transparency, and urgency.

Our proprietary LLV framework identifies leadership gaps, deploys effective programs for remediation, and accelerates and evaluates success. The framework includes the following steps:

1. Assess the current state of the organization
2. Chart the optimal course
3. Implement the plan
4. Accelerate the program and measure the results/outcomes
5. Course-correct and next steps
