ABOUT CMF Leadership Consulting

The "cross hairs" demonstrate a specific aim to action.
The "compass" symbolizes direction or movement.
The "chess piece" (the Knight) reflects strategy.
Together the "compass" and "Knight" signify strategic movement, which is most important to leaders in any organization.
The "globe and file" symbolize the global environment, while also being a global file source of leadership knowledge and training.

Our Logo's Meaning:
C = Clear
M = Meaningful
F = Focused

Our company grew out of a passion for leadership training and experience providing training courses while working in law enforcement. We grew into developing a company to address leadership, unfortunately due to a lack of leadership training available. We saw the need and we are attempting to do something about it. (Isn't that what leaders do anyway?)


Chris and Craig have been involved in leadership training since 2006 and have trained thousands of public and private personnel from agencies and organizartions throughout the United States.  Together they have over 30 years experience in training.  


We provide customized leadership training classes. Based on the needs of the organization, we will create a training to address those needs and help the organization continue to apply the lessons learned through monthly Supervisor Training Bulletins.
