Course Description

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.

What are the requirements?

  • 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.

What am I going to get from this course?

  • Inspire their tribes into a state of excellence by understanding the role of the natural chemicals which govern the behaviour of the human species
  • Implement proven strategies which allow for you to work with this information responsibly and successfully
  • Ensure that your tribe members are consistenly in a state of motivated happiness, which is the state of being which is most conducive to human beings thriving

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.

Section 1: Introduction

This lecture is an introduction to who I am and what my leadership journey has been as I have led various tribes throughout my career. I also explain why I felt it necessary to create this course for all current and aspiring alpha leaders.

Section 2: The Great Leadership Myth

This lecture speaks to the greatest leadership myth which exists and shows how it actually reduces the effectiveness of leaders as they lead their tribes. I explain why this theory is a myth and show how that knowledge empowers you as an alpha leader.

Section 3: How Humanity Has Evolved

In order to understand where we are going as alpha leaders we need to understand where we have been. This lecture unpacks the role of the alpha and the evolution of man. It also looks at how the role of the alpha has changed and continues to do so as humanity evolves.

Section 4: The Power Of Our Natural Motivation Potion

I talk through what our natural motivation potion is and how this affects the physiology, emotional brain and behaviour of human beings. Once you've finished this lecture you will have a far better idea as to what keeps human beings inspired, focused and moving forward - which is all important information for alpha leaders to know!


Let's implement! Knowledge of the concept alone is useless - in this lecture we talk about how to make this work within your tribe members, ensuring that they move into (and remain in) a motivated state.


A continuation of the previous lecture - so much information, so little time!

Section 5: The Power Of Our Natural Connection Chemical

We take a look at what allows human beings to connect with one another and develop relationships based on mutual respect and trust. Understanding the power of this may very well result in your "ah- hah!" moment. 


Let's implement! Knowing how to inspire trust and devotion in your tribe members comes in very handy as an alpha leader. It's so easy - just stick to what is covered in this lecture and you will be well on your way. 

Section 6: The Power Of Our Natural Happiness Hormone

I discuss the hormone which keeps human beings, happy, healthy and smiling. A happy tribe is a successful tribe, so understanding the role this hormone plays is crucial to alpha leadership. 


Let's implement! I talk through what you actually need to do with your tribe to get them into a state of motivated happiness. This is the space in which they will thrive and turn into a goal crushing force to be reckoned with!

Section 7: 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. 


Let's implement! Now that you understand what it does, let's look at how you reduce its impact on your tribe and ensure that all the happy, healthy hormones are flowing instead.


A continuation of the previous lecture - so much information, so little time!

Section 8: The Super 6 Principles Of Alpha Leadership

i give you the super 6 principles you need to keep front of mind during your alpha leadership journey, taking into account all that you have now learnt about the impact hormones have on the behaviour of your tribe members. 

Section 9: Let's Recap

A summary of all you have learnt, just to pull it all together and create that final picture which we've been working towards. 


Best wishes and a farewell... until our paths cross again.

Instructor Biography

Gia Marais, 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.
