There’s An Old Saying In The Venture Capital World… “Give Me An “A” Team With A “B” Opportunity And I’ll Still Win.”

You wouldn’t be an entrepreneur if you weren’t able to identify a great opportunity when you see one.

Even starting out and taking risks to make your first sales didn’t slow you down. You did what it took and got your business off the ground.

But, as the saying goes…

“What got you here, won’t get you there.”

The Next Level Of Your Business Is Directly Tied To The Quality Of Your Management And Leadership Ability.

I recently heard a story from Navy S.E.A.L. “Hell Week”…

If you’re not familiar with Hell Week, it’s where Navy S.E.A.L. recruits are put to the ultimate test. Sleep deprivation, physically grueling exercises and are subjected to massive amounts of psychological stress.

During one such Hell Week, the recruits were divided into teams and had to compete in a team obstacle challenge. Each team had a leader.

Over the course of the day, “Team Alpha” kept winning the challenge and getting rewarded with a much-needed break. “Team Delta”, in contrast, was consistently getting last place and had to keep working.

Eventually, the leader from Team Delta complained to the commanding officers and said he kept losing because the people on his team weren’t as good as the ones on Team Alpha.

Knowing the truth, the commanding officers put the leader from Team Delta in charge of Team Alpha and vice versa.

What happened next demonstrates the power of strong leadership.

Team Delta, the team that had been consistently losing, won the very next round of the challenge once they had better leadership.

Leadership matters.

Which begs the question….

How well are you equipped to be the best leader for your team that you can be?

Successful entrepreneurs lead high performing self-managed teams and now you can too!

Module 1: CREATE A WINNING CULTURE
In many entrepreneurial circles, culture is a buzzword that is often talked about but not well understood. Yet, creating a winning culture is one of the surest ways to guarantee the success of your business.

Come away with:

Knowing how to choose among the 4 types of cultures that map back to your management style.
Understanding how to get your team to get fully bought into your vision, values, and standards.

Module 2: DEVELOP YOUR LEADERSHIP ABILITY
Not only does life suck when you have to do everything yourself, but your business doesn’t grow as fast as it’s capable of either. Running your business without being confident when you delegate is like trying to try to run a marathon while breathing through a drinking straw; exhausting and unnecessary.

Come away with:

A clear understanding of the delegation triangle which makes sure that your team always has clear expectations and can deliver exactly what you’re looking for.
Ultra-simple, yet powerful tools that will make sure your team has done all of the heavy lifting before things get to you.
​A framework for reporting and measuring that will keep you in control even when you’re not the one doing the work.

Module 3: RUNNING PRODUCTIVE MEETINGS
Let’s face it. As an entrepreneur, the last thing in the world you want to spend your time doing is sitting in meetings when you can be getting things done. Meetings can be incredibly powerful, but only when they drive forward outcomes that are important for your goals.

Come away with:

Understanding the different types of meetings you and your team actually need and which ones can easily be left behind.
Templates, examples and best practices for each type of meeting so that your entire team is clear on the purpose of each and every interaction.
Knowing how to get the best contributions from your entire team regardless of whether they are loud and talkative, quiet and reserved or anywhere in between.

Module 4: PERFORMANCE MANAGEMENT
According to a recent gallup poll, a staggering 85% of employees report being disengaged at work. That means for the average business owner or entrepreneur, of every dollar you spend on labor, $0.85 is going to waste. Your team, whether employees or contractors, local or virtual, part-time or full-time need to be managed to achieve their best performance.

Come away with:

Knowing how to identify and help the people on your team play to their strengths.
​Simple strategies that work for evaluating compensation, promotions and performance reviews.
The 3 key things you need to know about everyone who works for you.

Module 5: NAVIGATING TOUGH CONVERSATIONS
It’s time to dig into and learn about the other people in your business. Teammates, contractors, partners and even investors. Learn and understand how to read people immediately and change your approach as the situation dictates.

Come away with:

Action steps on how to navigate critical conversations with ease.
A clear understanding of what causes workplace drama and how to put it to an end once and for all.
How to get your people more engaged in their work, more consistently.
​Influence other people in an effective way for them.
