Leadership Fundamentals

Take the Mystery Out of Leadership


Enroll Today

Program Overview

Being a successful leader requires more than a title. Leaders who have the skills, knowledge, and tools to effectively lead are the ones that grow their careers and their employee's careers.

This is why it is no surprise that leaders have the biggest direct influence on the employees they manage and their levels of engagement, productivity, and ultimately results.

To be that leader that others want to work for requires intentional effort in building your leadership capabilities. That's where Leadership Fundamentals comes in. Based on 35 years of experience in coaching and developing leaders at all levels this program takes the mystery out of effective leadership, helping you understand how to best focus your efforts and time for maximum results.

Maximize Your Learning Experience

To enhance your leadership development experience, the option is available to complete the LeadNOW 180° Assessment ($650) as an add-on to your program. This assessment was designed to help you bring out the best in yourself and your team. It provides leaders with insight into two factors that are most critical to ensuring teams have what they need to perform effectively: leadership styles and team conditions. While these two factors are part of a larger framework for leadership effectiveness they are the two factors that are directly within your control, creating an ongoing opportunity for action, reflection, and refinement in your leadership approach. This is where our greatest development can happen.

Reviews From Your Peers

“I became more self-aware of my leadership tendencies and how I most naturally respond to situations within my organization or teams that I lead. With my increased level of self-awareness, I feel more capable now of being able to focus on the areas of leadership that come less naturally to me. Upon completion of the course, I feel much better equipped with tools and strategies that I can apply to quite complex team dynamics within my organization."

“The facilitator was engaging and the content was appropriate for beginner and experienced leaders alike. A great opportunity to get educated about leadership styles and how to approach various leadership situations. The material provided an opportunity to reflect on your current style and how it is working or what should be adjusted to be your best possible self."

“As a new manager, I really enjoyed this program. Combined with the LeadNOW 180 Feedback tool, it has provided me with both new ways of thinking about leadership and some very tangible strategies for applying this knowledge with my team. I look forward to taking more courses in the future."

"I highly recommend this course for new leaders or for those with some experience as it will perhaps reaffirm some of your knowledge while providing you with practical methods/tools for use with your team. The engagement with other participants was invaluable. Brent was a great facilitator!"
