One of the biggest challenges in leadership is self-belief. The belief that you have the ability to lead, the understanding even though you are nervous, you can do it.

Too often we promote people to leadership positions and expect them to lead. “Congratulations, from Monday you’re a leader, now go lead”. Sounds funny when you put it like that, but this is the introduction many get to leadership. And this sink or swim approach is unfair.

In five days you can equip your managers and supervisors with more confidence in themselves and their abilities.

5 Days - 5 Topics - 5 Tasks

Understanding and knowing which leadership style to use in a given situation is the first step to successful leadership.

Today we challenge you to define your own leadership style and decide if it’s the best style for you in your role as a leader.


What's Your Style?

Learn your leadership style

Power and authority sound like the same thing, they’re very different.

How they’re used can define the difference between a powerful leader and an overbearing dictator. Which are you more inclined to use in your own leadership?


Power and Authority

Which do you use more?

Possibly one of the most valuable skills a leader can have is the ability to think clearly and critically, especially in times of high stress or crisis situations.

Todays task is a dilemma meant to push you well outside your comfort zone and see just how emotional you are!


Critical Thinking

How emotional are you?

How exactly do you know if different members of your team are solid performers, under performers or strong performers and what impact does it have on the team as a whole?

Today we will use a system used by Fortune 100 companies to measure performance.


Performance Management

Six Sigma Performance

Emotional intelligence is one of the most important ideas to hit leadership in recent years.

It is based on the notion that your ability to understand your own emotions, and those of the people you lead, is the key to better performance.


Emotional Intelligence

What's your EQ level?

Live classes last approximately one hour and take place over zoom on Wednesday and Friday.  They are an excellent way to get feedback and to dig deeper into more complex subjects.
