Introducing High Performance Leaders

HPL Partnership Disrupts Leadership Development Industry

High Performance Leaders Inc. (HPL) announces new partnership to develop Effective Leaders that create long term sustained High Performance cultures.


Kitchener-Waterloo, ONT, June 28, 2019-- Scott Smith, a leading Continuous Improvement (CI) coach and president of the HPS Consortium, alongside Glenn Sommerville, a proven industry CI executive, have formed High Performance Leaders Inc. to help organizations create and sustain High Performance Cultures. HPL offers its clients effective and practical methods to develop the necessary skills and habits to create strong and committed leaders and effective management system structures along with a culture of respect and trust.  


A highly engaged and motivated employee is the most formidable weapon that an organization can utilize to compete and win. An engaged and motivated employee is more focused on doing their work, more productive and is more likely to have a better work and home life.  However, less than 30% of an organization’s people fit this category. Less than 5% of organizations sustain High Performance over the long term. HPL offers a unique skill development program with coaching support from proven Leaders during and after the program. HPL also offers support by a community of peers with the same focus of accelerating learning and sharing of best practices. HPL’s Effective Leader development program raises the bar to drive long term and sustainable performance within organizations.


Scott Smith has been coaching and developing thousands of organizations and leaders as the president of HPS Consortium for over 18 years. Through his life-long commitment to CI, Scott has provided support to consortium members to apply what they learn from benchmarking, collaboration and exchange events. He has created and led cross-organizational improvement teams and developed relationships that resulted in the acceleration and sustainment of the consortium member’s CI journeys. Scott has developed proven methodologies to help members continually evolve their thinking. 

Glenn Sommerville has been leading transformational change and CI across multiple industries at highly successful companies such as Honeywell, Toyota, BlackBerry and Amazon. Through his time with Toyota, Glenn learned the hard way what Toyota Production System (TPS) really meant and earned his stripes in CI on the manufacturing floor through daily management and rigorous hands-on training and development in Japan by TPS experts.  Glenn’s strong passion and practical approach to CI and culture change has facilitated best in class performance from the teams and organizations he has led.  


High Performance Leaders Inc. is developing the World’s Highest Performing Leaders.
