Ready to Make
the Biggest Impact
on Your Life?


Now is Your Time


As leaders and coaches, we look to navigate the global challenges that are affecting everyone, including how to build a business or practice that can thrive, not just survive. To do so, we must look to innovate, take a stand for what matters to each of us, and keep learning.

Our lives, careers, communities, and the world depend on our ability to lead and create an impact.

You Can Be the Game-Changer

Taking that stand requires the development of rare skills that allow you to respond to big breakdowns, while also planning for the breakthrough on the other side.

We know how challenging it can be to lead and coach powerfully. Knowing what to focus on and what to do that will produce the results you’re after can seem like an elusive pursuit.

We’ve helped thousands of leaders and coaches from companies like Google, Facebook, Intel, Adobe, and the EPA, to the smaller organizations that represent most of the workforce today.

We’ve helped leaders and coaches grow their income on average by 38%, improve work/life balance on average by 87%, and get promoted at least once in their careers.

What’s the impact you want to have in your leadership and coaching?

If you’re ready to build your skills as a leader or coach, then join us this fall!

What Participants Say

What You Will Learn:

In the workshop, you will learn the foundations of leadership, team performance, and management:

  • How commitment is the foundation of action, coordination, and results
  • How conversations precede and shape all action and results, including the conversations we don’t have or avoid
  • The power of emotional intelligence and the impact of emotional resonance on teamwork and trust
  • How “care” is the element that creates value, meaning, and excellence in action
  • How our bodies speak louder than our mouths and produce presence and trust or the lack of it
  • The generative acts in language that make things happen
  • The leadership skill of evaluating the assessments that lead to commitments
  • How to avoid over-commitment and weigh the trustworthiness of promises made
  • The fundamental unit of organizational action – the agreement
  • How to make breakdowns productive
  • The capacity to be centered rather than off-center during challenging and triggering moments
  • How to blend with the styles of others
  • How to enter continuing practice with your skills, enabling you to grow them over time
