The 3 pillars of my coaching program:
Revolutionizing Leadership: Becoming a 'New School CEO'

Your Design:
Reinforcing Your
Leadership Foundation

Modules 1-7 (7 Weeks)

You’re in a new leadership position, but you haven’t been trained for it. You feel unprepared and don’t know where to begin! Not to worry! We will do a number of things to reinforce your ‘New School CEO’ foundation…

  • Dive into the different levels of leadership, understand who you truly are as a leader, and master your leadership style and strengths to succeed in your current and future positions.
  • Develop simple, yet powerful techniques to motivate and properly manage your employees, so you can create a work environment that is positive and productive.
  • Instead of writing off challenging and difficult employees who lack growth and aren’t performing, work with them to develop their strengths, positive intelligence, and more, benefiting the employee and the entire organization. 
  • Building a growth mindset within yourself and your organization with positive intelligence.

Your Brand:
Solidifying Your Reputation as a Great Leader

Modules 8-11 (5 Weeks)

As you build your ‘New school’ leadership foundation, we will need to establish your brand by solidifying your reputation in various ways.

  • Continue to use your leadership foundation to improve the organization you are in now, building your leadership capabilities and your name as a game changer in your industry.
  • How to measure your organizational success and personal achievements for future positions.
  • Discover how to build relationships with the right people in the industry you want to reside in.
  • Learn how to leverage being a guest on industry and specialty-specific podcasts, to establish yourself as a thought leader in your area of expertise.
  • Uncover how and where to network in all the right places to meet C-suite decision makers  you want to work with in the near future.

Your Dream Career:
When, Where & How
You Will Get There

Modules 12-15 (4 Weeks)

At this point in the program, you are executing your ‘New School’ leadership foundation superbly, making great strides for your organization, continue to solidify your reputation and establish your brand through sincere relationships.  This is when some soul searching needs to be done to determine:

  • Where your knowledge, skills and abilities are, and if they have progressed enough to equate to a number of years of experience. Once this is done we can progress to the following:
  • Entrepreneur or Employee Path?
  • What position and industry you want to end up in?
  • When you want to get there.
  • How you will not burn any bridges, keeping the reputation you have build in tact, and prove to your industry that you are a highly desirable executive-level leader or competent business owner.
  • Determine your income/salary range and benefits.
  • Negotiating and accepting the best offer.
  • Making the move!!
