Our Empowered Leader course is designed to power possibilities within participants, ultimately giving you:

  • Greater Clarity – Illuminate the potential within yourself, others, your work, systems, organization, and even the world by learning to think in new ways.
  • Greater Capacity – Expand your mindset and capabilities through challenge, collision with new perspectives, and reflection.
  • Greater Agility – Discover how to work with, not against, the design of your brain for greater dexterity throughout your day.

This course isn’t just about giving you tools and skills to better manage your team. It is about changing how you think – seeing things differently – so you can lead your team to the results you and your organization ultimately want.  In Empowered Leader II, you’ll learn how to:

  • Transform the way your organization learns.
  • Cultivate a culture of ownership.
  • Leverage failure.
  • Develop and implement systems that drive creativity, innovation, and growth.

Our robust curriculum provides experiential learning through lively group sessions, self-directed reflection, hands-on practice, and small group assignments, all designed to help you think differently about your role as leader and support you with strategies to change the behaviors you want to change. Each session will help you think and rethink with more clarity, agility, and purpose in both your professional and personal life!
