Leading Well: 5 Action Steps that inspire people to contribute their best

Free Masterclass

This free masterclass is for small business Founders and CEOs who want to:

  • Lead with authenticity so that you get past imposter syndrome and stop allowing the red cape at work to make you comatose at home.
  • Inspire people to do what's right even when no one is watching so that you avoid micromanaging and focus instead on growth.
  • Get the right people in the right roles doing the right things so that you plug the drain on employee turnover and boost productivity 2X - 3X.
  • Adapt quickly to turbulence and uncertainty so that you can innovate and lead change - and avoid slow-rolling and risk aversion that kill your best initiatives.
  • Set aside empty cheerleading and carrots-and-sticks so that you can spark a genuine commitment to results.
  • Avoid the seductive charismatic and transactional leader traps that sap your energy, reduce initiative, and increase risk-aversion.
