About Us

Frank Zauflik
Frank Zauflik MA MBA

How can people be highly effective when daily life involves the overlap of cultural dynamics that are not always very helpful to hopes and expectations about performance?

Research suggests reconciling cultural dilemmas is a distinguishing feature that differentiates more successful leaders from less successful leaders. But this requires you to be able to reconcile dilemmas that come from the cross-cultural overlap of national, geographic, ethnic and organizational contexts. It can also include diversity in gender, age, academic major, vocational expertise, race, faiths and more.

Centre for Leadership Effectiveness LLC is dedicated to strengthening performance of individuals, teams, and organizations in their culturally complex world. It does so through integrating academic research validated assessments with education, coaching and consulting in order to turn soft skills into hard results. The focus is upon global operations of public, private & non-profit organizations; advanced level university classrooms; and Christian domestic & international multicultural ministries. 

Why use assessments? Because academically researched assessments help individuals, teams and organizations to develop a broader understanding of themselves and their relationships, explore their potential, and build more effective relationships. Assessments help everyone to identify where to put their energy for deepest effectiveness.

Frank Zauflik is the Executive Director. His overall experience is the combination of senior executive global business leadership with full profit & loss responsibility; member of board of directors for several international not for profit organizations; various roles with domestic and international multicultural Christian ministry organizations; extensive trans-national living; advanced academics; Cultural Intelligence (CQ) Certified Facilitator; Independent Everything DiSC® Authorized Partner; and Everything DiSC Certified Trainer.
