Being A Leader™
and the effective exercise of leadership program
This program is for business owners, C-suite executives, entrepreneurs, managers and anyone interested in growth and development.
Regardless of your experience, you will emerge from this program with a natural and profound capacity to exercise leadership, in any situation and under any circumstances.
How It Works
How Leaders Are Forged
You could characterize The Being A Leader™ program as a leadership laboratory. It employs a new science of leadership, based on the study of ontology and phenomenology. This roughly translates into the study of “who you are being”.
You’ll discover that real leadership does not rely on your position, title, money, or any of the personality traits often attributed to leaders. You’ll learn how to define leadership as a repeatable construct.
In this program, conventional ways of thinking are challenged and new ways of thinking emerge. The process results in your exercising leadership effectively as your natural self-expression.
The program consists of 2 three-day working sessions, separated by 4 to 8 weeks. Sessions are accompanied by one-on-one coaching. To maximize the opportunity for cross-disciplinary-learning, there are three group webinars/coaching sessions with the other participants.
Additionally, you receive one-on-one coaching on a personal leadership initiative, “something big”. This work helps you embody what leadership looks like (on-the-court) as you define and advance your initiative in previously unimaginable ways.
The online program has seven online workshop days spread over a two-month time period. These sessions are delivered in 8 ½ hour time blocks. There is a pre-program coaching session to help tailor the Being a Leader program to individual needs. Additionally, coaching on how to implement the distinctions from the program into “real life” and additional 1-on-1 video coaching upon request is provided.
Note: There are approximately 185 pages of reading and related study assignments to be completed prior to Day #1

Frequently Asked Questions
Ontology is the study of the nature of being and becoming. In this program, your way of being is the source of your behaviours. Rather than wrestling with what skill to use when, you focus on your ways of being.
Phenomenology is the study of the development of consciousness and self-awareness. Consciously choosing your ways of being is what enables the practice of leadership.
