When I was asked to facilitate a three-hour experience at a leadership retreat, intended to provide tools and information which would assist people in developing their mentoring skills - I knew I had the content to support their success! For years I've been preparing supervisors and managers for their transitions from one level of an organization to a leadership role. My course, "Team Lead and Supervisor Readiness" became the basis for this 15 page coaching and mentoring guide: LEAD YOURSELF FIRST.

Many times people are put in leadership positions without the benefit of training that highlights the competencies required to succeed as a leader. Or, people attend concept training and leave with an overwhelming feeling of, "Now what?", working hard and with good intentions, but lacking effectiveness in their roles. I wrote this guide so people would have a step-by-step action planner to build their foundation for leadership.

Even if you don't think you want to fill a leadership role, but want to develop the self awareness and actions to be an employee with maximum value in your organization, this course will help you achieve your goal. How can I be so sure? Because thousands of participants have participated in my face-to-face trainings and thanked me for the information and tools I provide.

This information has even helped people become more effective leaders in their own families...some say my courses have saved them thousands of dollars in counseling fees!

I was asked to facilitate a three-hour experience for managers at a retreat. The focus of the session was preparing them to coach and mentor other employees in the organization, both within their own teams and potentially outside of their own work teams.

The starting place for leaders is to lead themselves first. As a professional trainer and performance coach, I've repeatedly seen leaders who are trying to push their teams to changed behavior, but they haven't done the deep dive into their own behaviors. This guide takes you through the step-by-step process of exploring leadership competencies, asking yourself necessary questions for evolving your leadership skills - and simultaneously showing you the questions you will use in your own employee development program,

Practical tools such as the Leadership Daily Check List, analogy worksheets, and other workbook type tools are included in this guide.

I can't be there to coach every one of you personally. This guide represents the processes I'd take you through in the first three sessions if you hired me to support you in the development of your leadership foundation. People pay $750 for those three sessions, so you gain terrific value when you purchase this guide. Take action now and take your leadership quality to the next level.

One of the most powerful exercises I facilitate is linked to the values which drive your decisions and actions. People want meaningful work, they need to know they bring individual value to the work team, and they want to work in positive environments. When you listen to this lecture you'll learn about the important question people often don't think about while consistently taking action on their value drivers.

Each lecture is set up as if you have hired me as your performance coach. I talk with you about the importance of the activities in your LEAD YOURSELF FIRST guide.

We also explore potential blocks to your success and set you up to seek support in overcoming those blocks.
