Become a Kind & Fearless Leader
A 60-day coaching intensive that will transform you into a powerful leader (by adding compassion, empathy and listening skills to your clear, focused and driven style)
You have perfect clarity. You know what needs to be done. You are focused on the vision and the mission. And yet your executive team hesitates. They are filled with worry and doubt. They are hedging their bets.
You don’t need to push harder. You just need to find a way to their hearts.
What will you learn?
How to listen to
- how they say it
- why they say it
- how they feel saying it
- what they aren't saying
- why aren’t they saying it
- what they say
How to help your team
- feel seen and understood
- speak their mind clearly and directly
- make difficult decisions
- take appropriate risks
- empower their own teams
- push beyond their comfort zone
And why you should always
- empower, protect, nourish and forgive them
- take full responsibility for their failures (to help them learn)
- give full credit for their successes (to help them grow)
How will this transform your organization?
- You will see faster progress, better results, and quicker pivots when needed.
- There will be more initiative, more ownership and more courageous action.
- There will be an increased sense of mutual trust, respect and even admiration.
- You will be able to focus on strategy and trust the tactics to be taken care of.
- Your team will become more cohesive and resilient to face the challenges ahead.
What will we do together?
Set personal leadership goals
We’ll start by understanding what kind of leader you want to be and defining a set of criteria by which you’ll measure yourself. We’ll also ask your team to assess you on the same set of criteria.
- achieve clarity on where you are and where you are going
- know how far away you are from your goals
- see the progress you’ve made
- know when you are done
We will continue working together until you’ve reached your goals.
Collect feedback from your team
We'll spend 30-60 minutes interviewing your each member of your team. We'll collect their praise and criticism and translate it into actionable changes we can help you make.
- they'll feel you're open and listening (even if you can’t do it yourself yet)
- you'll foster a culture of personal responsibility and growth
- the deep feedback will allow you the maximum opportunity for improvement
- you'll learn to listen to what they say, how they feel and also what they avoid saying
Weekly coaching sessions
We’ll meet every week to discuss challenges, victories, doubts and conflicts.
- We’ll discuss situations where your leadership skills worked well and where they fell short.
- We’ll track your progress towards your goals.
- We’ll resolve specific situations you face with your team.
Most of all it’s going to be a space for you to pause, reflect, discuss and process whatever is going on.
Daily written reflection
Writing is the best way to make speedy progress. We’ll send you an email (or a Twitter DM if you prefer) with some questions for reflection every day. We’ll respond with observations, suggestions and deeper analysis.
