View Curriculum
  • No previous knowledge or experience is required as the information in this course will either add to what you already know or give you a good baseline to start from on your leadership journey.

This course is for all existing leaders, as well as those who aspire to move into leadership positions in the future. The course offers insights as to how tuning into the biology of your tribe members can assist you with learning how to lead them into a state of excellence - consistently. We seriously underestimate the power of the natural  chemicals which govern our behaviour as a species and many leaders are completely unaware of how useful this information can be in their day-to-day dealings with their teams. 

The course is three and a half hours long and is structured in a way which explains what these chemicals are and how they work in the most straight forward way possible. Once I've covered how these chemicals affect our behaviour as humans beings, I talk through the strategies you need to use to make this work in your favour as an Alpha Leader - and more importantly, how to implement these strategies with your people.

I show you how to turn your team into a motivated, connected, happy tribe who trust and respect you as their leader and love their jobs too. This is the state of being that humans thrive in.

Who is the target audience?
  • This leadership course is meant for all those who are already in leadership positions and who are seeking to improve upon their current skill set in a way which manifests tangible results. Anyone who aspires to move into a leadership position professionally will also gain insight and knowledge as to what it takes to position themselves as someone who is capable of leading a tribe to success. This course is probably not for you if you have no interest in understanding human beings better.

The Great Leadership Myth

The Power Of Our Natural Survival Serum

I've left the hormone which has the most profound effect on us until last. As alpha leaders we need to have a deep understanding of what this hormone does to our tribe members physiologically because it can cause enormous damage to our people. I discuss this in detail during this lecture.

Alpha Leader

My passion for learning and teaching has withstood the test of time as I began my career as a high school teacher after leaving university with a degree in Social Science, majoring in Industrial Psychology and Industrial Sociology. I started at the bottom of the corporate ladder post my teaching days and worked my way into a managerial position, within a large international insurance company. When I got there however, it became very apparent that I didn't have the leadership skill set I required to inspire my team into a state of excellence. This resulted in some very dark days... (actually years) as I started the process of teaching myself what a great leader is and what a great leader does, because I knew that becoming an alpha leader was a critical component of my team succeeding. 
It's harder than it sounds, not because the principles are difficult to understand. On the contrary, the principles of alpha leadership are very straightforward - but actually putting them into practice is the tricky part. It requires consistency, emotional intelligence, a genuine willingness to learn and of course, knowing how to fail fast, when you do fail (as we all do occasionally) and then more importantly, how to shift gears and move forward better, faster and stronger. 
I would like to show others what I learnt during my leadership journey, actively leading teams of people in highly stressful, multinational corporate environments.
I taught myself how to be an alpha leader and inspired the people who worked with me and for me into a state of excellence, ensuring that we smashed our goals and stayed connected to each other and the organization whilst we did so. 
This being said, I taught myself the hard way (probably because there was no Udemy when I was going through this process) but our world has changed, and learning how to actually apply the principles of leadership in the real world doesn't have to be as difficult as it was when I started. Join me as I show you how.
