Being a Leader and the Effective Exercise of Leadership

white background

Unleash your natural expression of leadership.

In this powerful three-month program, you will discover
a new capacity to lead—both others and yourself—in work and in life.

Is this program for you?

Do you have audacious ambitions? Are you up to accomplishing something extraordinary? Do you need to take your leadership to a new level in order to make it all happen? Do you want to lead naturally, effortlessly, effectively?

Being a Leader and The Effective Exercise of Leadership is for you.

It’s truly unique.

This program employs a new science of leadership that gives you access to transforming who you are being as a leader. Rather than giving you “answers,” this program is designed to empower you to effectively deal with the risks inherent in life and business. Participants of this Leadership Course discover that real leadership never means just a position, a title, time, money, influence, or any of the traits typically “required” to be a leader or produce the results of a leader.  Instead of more knowledge about leadership, you are left with a greater capacity to lead — to lead naturally and effectively, no matter what the situation, in all facets of your life. The outcome: breakthroughs in your leadership performance that will last a lifetime.

What's involved?

Being a Leader and the Effective Exercise of Leadership starts with a comprehensive reading and writing assignment followed by six days of in-person sessions over the course of three months. At the outset, you will create a Leadership Initiative designed to make a decisive contribution to something that really matters to you. Your Initiative will serve as a real-time laboratory for applying the principles of the program. You will have practice work and a 90-minute webinar between each of our in-person sessions.

Our promise:

You will leave this program being a leader and exercising leadership effectively as your natural self-expression in any situation and no matter what the circumstances.

Our unique method

Traditional Methods of Teaching

The method employed in this Leadership Course contrasts with the traditional methods of teaching leadership in which students are provided with the opportunity to learn the characteristics, styles, and practices of noteworthy leaders as these have been observed, described, interpreted, and explained “from the stands”. (To put this more formally, the traditional method of teaching leadership deals with leader and leadership conceptually from a third-person perspective which is an epistemological / theoretical model.) In the traditional method, students are presented with knowledge about leader and leadership and are expected to remember and figure out how to apply such knowledge in each leadership situation. (Note: we will often characterize the contrast between these two methods simply as “leader and leadership on the court” versus “leader and leadership from the stands”.)

The Unique Method Employed in This Course

The method utilized in this course provides participants with the opportunity to master:

1) being a leader, and the effective exercise of leadership,
2) as these are actually lived and personally experienced “on the court.”

In formal terms this is a first-person, real-time, ontological/phenomenological model.

What the participants say about Being a Leader and the Effective Exercise of Leadership:

“I tell my friends that it is the best leadership course or program I have ever been a part of.”

"I had always thought that I had to be doing 'something' to be a leader and I wasn’t. Now, I get that I can be a leader at any time and in any situation."

"Leadership hasn’t to do with what you are doing, rather who you are being. And I got that I can be, and am being a leader, just being myself."

"I highly recommend this course as the next level of leadership to take on goals bigger than yourself."

"There are areas that I discovered that I live in self-deception, and I saw the impact of not putting my word into existence on the calendar. Also getting that I did not have a powerful relationship to no. All of these things were limiting my ability to be effective with what I am up to creating in the world."

"For over a year and a half, the planning of our venture was stuck in the formulation stage.  In other words, myself and my two colleagues kept making up ideas and not doing anything about it.  Now, myself and my colleagues now have clear actions to take.  To no longer be stalled is a gift!" -CP

"My participation in the course was phenomenal! My goal was to create my own role at my current company, double the size of my current team, promote two people, and leave my team fully empowered and prepared to operate without me. Leaving the course, I'm happy to say that I was able to accomplish my intended outcomes. The relationship with my direct manager has never been more authentic, my team doubled, and in 3 months I'll be moving into my new role at the same company. I reached levels of my corporate career that I've never been able to accomplish before and I now see myself as a very effective leader in my space. I'm happy to be in the position to make the same impact with everyone that I work with!"

"If my wife said she saw extraordinary results with me taking this course, then yes, I experienced extraordinary results. She's a non-BS kind of gal. I'm incredibly grateful to have experienced this with not only my coaches, but also the participants, my peers. I have experienced multiple transformations that have allowed me to truly have peace of mind, greater control, and the ability to harness the power within me. Worth my investment.  I would only recommend this program for those who want to achieve extraordinary results in their lives, attaining them will not be easy."

"Being a Leader gave me a profoundly comprehensive and wonderful new access to exercising my leadership in the world.  It was at once intellectually rigorous and shockingly simple.  I am now fulfilling created futures with astounding ease and also recognizing and fostering greater leadership in others.  Thank you!"

Entrepreneur, CEO 

"I could say I’m leaving this course Being a Leader. You might think - oh well she was already always a leader. I would say back my BEING IS UNLEASHED. I now know myself, just the way I am and just the way I am not as a leader. With lots to listen, say, and do in the world. 
"I also found myself in a community of leaders, leading and being in communication as leaders, for leaders and leadership as an “on the court” phenomena. As a way of being, in action and in the present. 
"I could say that it is worth whatever you are charged, in money and in time. There is no going back and there are no limits on being and on leader and leadership as a who shows up in the World.
"I wish I had access to this years ago and I’m grateful that I have it now."
- Lori Wostl

"The leadership course opened up a future that wasn’t going to happen, especially as I was still holding on to my past accomplishments. I am now creating a future that is consistent to who I am today that has me show up as the powerful leader that I am. The blinders came off and the future looks bright."

"What I could say about being in his course is I found my true authentic self. I never saw myself as a leader especially leading from the front  - that was for others – yet time and time again I found myself contributing to the people in the program I had to step back and reconstitute myself. I had to reconstruct myself as a leader leading from the front. One of my discoveries of what had me be hesitant to take on the role of leader was my deep seated sentence of myself….'I don’t belong.'  It prevented me from speaking up.  I would hide in the back of the room. It wasn’t safe for me in the world. Once I discovered this, it no longer had a grip on me allowed me the freedom to be me. The freedom to express myself the freedom to be a leader as a natural self expression.

"It’s time to allow the magic to flow through my life."
