Curriculum

Section 1: Creating the Game of Leadership
02:11

Maybe you have never thought of leadership as a game before, but consider that is exactly what it is. If you know the rules, players, and goals there is a chance to win. If you do not know these things, the chances of winning are low.

01:57

If you want to be an effective leader it might be good to know what it takes and how to do it. In this video I share with you the the key ingredient that makes a leader effective or ineffective.

Getting to Work on Your Personal Leadership Game
06:33
02:30

In this section you will look at what type of leader you want to be so that you can create goals that map back to your commitment. This will build your reputation, help you create trust, and influence others.

Conclusion: Commit to Do the Work
01:57
Section 2: The #1 Thing You Need to Become an Effective Leader And How to Cultivate It
02:54

In this video I reveal the #1 thing leaders have to have to be effective and win. This is not what you were taught in school but it is THE thing that will have you win at your leadership game - like no kidding!

02:54

Let's take a deep dive into what emotional intelligence is. The better you understand the concept and why it is important the better you can use the tool to become effective.

02:37

How is that emotions impact our results around leadership? Learn how and why and how you can shift your actions to align with your committed results instead of letting your emotions take you out of the game.

05:18

If emotions have such a direct impact on the results we get, maybe we should get really interested in why we have the emotions we have. In this video I will reveal the source of our emotions, where they come from, and start to inquire how you can have power over your emotions instead of them having power over you.

Do we choose our thoughts? Or are we being thought?
04:15
07:52

In this video I drop some neuroscience knowledge on you. Bam! Neuroscience! I share how your brain can take you out of your leadership game in a millisecond without much say so from us. I also share a personal story on how it happened to me and what the outcomes were.

Conclusion: Setting You Up to Get on the Court
00:39
Section 3: The Key Fundamentals to the Game of Leadership
06:37

If we do not know what is impacting us and our leadership goals then we will always be at the affect of it. In this video I Introduce you to a 4 step process that will have you become powerful and a master at being aware of your emotions and giving you the ability to shift them and your actions so that you can get better results. You will also learn a powerful play in the leadership game called the Meta Play.

06:35

In this video I will guide you through the first step of the Self Awareness Process - Identifying the Emotion. You will be trained on how to gain access to the emotion you are experiencing through a simple mindfulness exercise. By gaining awareness of the emotion, you will be able to create a space before you act through that emotion. In that space you can choose instead of just react.

01:54

In this video we begin to breakdown the Meta Play so you can have mastery over it. By applying the Meta Play you be able to gain awareness of your emotion and create a space before you act through that emotion. In that space you can choose reflectively instead of just react. This will have a big impact on your leadership results.

02:22

In this video we take a look at the first part of the Meta Play and dive into why paying attention to your body is key for success in understanding your emotions.

01:45

Something happens to things, emotions,and people when we put our awareness on them. The power of just witnessing and becoming aware of things has them automatically shift. So though a simple act, awareness has great power to create the conditions for success.

03:35

Many of us have heard that taking deep breathes is good to relive stress, calm the mind, and help us relax. In this video I share the neuroscience behind this so you know the why behind the power of taking this simple action.

NOTE: Pay attention to what happens to me in this video after doing the breathing exercise. Can you notice a difference in my energy? In my voice? How I am being?

02:59

In this video we look at how talking to ourselves about the emotions we are having helps us shift them and choose our behavior so that it is more inline with our desired outcomes.

04:15

Do you dare to share? Sharing your emotions might seem risky but if you do you will see tremendous benefits. When you are courageous enough to be vulnerable, people respond with more trust, understanding, and compassion. When people are in this state the possibility of collaboration is high and so is obtaining the goal at hand.

02:48

Why would some of the top leaders in history take the time to write in their journal? Because journalling works! In this video I reveal the top benefits of journaling and why it should be a priority in reaching your leadership goals. Make it simple and take it easy - in jounaling there are no rules, just write!

01:43

OK it is time to set yourself for success and schedule into your game practicing the Meta Play. This piece is critical in building the foundation of your leadership and is the gateway to your power. Without it you will most likely default back to your past way of behaving and as they "What got you here will not get you there." You need new behaviors and actions to get different results.

Section 4: Taking Your Game to the Next Level
02:49

It is not circumstances or situations that has you have an emotional response, it is what you believe about the circumstance or situation that has you react. In this video we delve into how our beliefs have more say in what we can and can not accomplish than our knowledge or experience combined.

05:42

In this video I share with you some BS that I had in my past and how it took me out of my leadership game. This BS impacted every aspect of my career and had me act like...well...a jerk. (Apologies to all that had to deal with me!) Do you see yourself in what I am sharing? If you do, welcome! :) Glad to have you in my camp but now let's choose something different.

04:01

In this video I share with you the first step to a tool that you can use to see if you are living in reality or if you are living inside your made up BS. This tool will get you into action with something you have been wanting to accomplish for a long time but have been unable to do so.

04:24

Want to see where some of your BS was born? In this video I share a simple journeling exercise.

02:04

Ever look at your life and start to see patterns? In this video we look at how our BS has us act in predictable ways that keep getting us the same or similar results. When our BS is in running the show, we will behave in ways that do not necessarily support or empower what we really want.

03:23

In this video I will share with you what might occur as a disappointing and hard to swallow - beliefs are a human construct, all of them are made up, none of them are true. At first we might feel disempowered by this information because we can identify with our beliefs, like they are who we are. But once you see the potential and what is possible when you question beliefs, you can easily get empowered and take ownership of the beliefs systems you are creating and create ones that inspire you to take the leadership actions needed to fulfill on your goals.

07:16

The actions you take if you believe you can be a leader are drastically different than the action you take if you believe you can not be leader. Create new beliefs that empower you and your actions and shift your results. In this video, I show you how.

Section 5: BONUS Section: Get Everyone to See You as a Leader
02:45

In this video I reveal the #1 thing that gives you the ability to influence others and gain trust. Learn why top performers become top performers and what it takes to become one.

03:39

Most of us do not think about how we are impacting people, circumstances, and outcomes. This is a blind spot. We go throughout our day behaving how we behave without really thinking about the impact we are having. This is a huge missed opportunity. Be being responsible and cultivating your impact you can start to build stronger relationships, more trust, and better results.

05:26

In this video we discuss the negative impacts of gossiping and why, we as humans, do it. By watching this video you will see how this behavior is detrimental to your leadership goals and learn what you can do instead.

03:14
Complaining is a success killer. it also is training your brain to see the negative which will never get you the results you are looking for. By watching this video you will see how this behavior is detrimental to your leadership goals and learn what you can do instead.
04:15

In this video we dig into our desire to be right and why we fight so much to be it. Is your being right damaging relationships? If you are being right with anyone, consider it is. By watching this video you will see how this behavior is detrimental to your leadership goals and learn what you can do instead.

05:04

When we behave in ways that are detrimental to our leadership goals and created a negative impact on others, there is actions we can take to get us back on track. We can actively go to work on cleaning up our mess and shifting people's opinion about us. In order to be seen as a leader, you have to show up like a leader. To get others to see you that way you are going to have to clean up the mess you have made. Let's get started!

04:16

In this video I will share with you a powerful process that will support you in building relationships, trust, and connection. To do this process it takes courage.

Do you think the leaders you admire had to be courageous to get the results they got? Of course, it is obvious. Let's talk about what they did to keep moving even when feeling fearful and uncomfortable.

08:11

In this video we start to put into question why we say what we say. We start to see that maybe what we say is not getting us the best results and how to shift into talking on purpose so we can create the results we are looking for.

I share two personal experiences from my past that illustrates the difference between taking just to talk and talking on purpose.

06:08

Have you ever found yourself leaving the presence of a negative person feeling negative yourself? Or a happy person and feeling better? In this video I explain the human phenomena of catching other people's emotions. I explain why this is important to know as a leader and how you can use this information to your advantage in reaching your leadership goals.

Section 6: Conclusion...Or Is It Just the Beginning? :)
01:55

We have come to the end. But really it is just the beginning, isn't it? :) Thank you for your commitment and for being willing to do the work. We are all waiting for you to step fully into your leadership and I acknowledge you for taking this course and starting down the path. I hope to see you again!
