Leadership for Modern Day Leaders

Giving you the skills to lead in the modern world.

Can you think of a time when you...

Hired the wrong person and the stress it created?

Had to have a difficult conversation and couldn't sleep the night before?

Your team didn't follow your instructions correctly and all the problems it created?

Had to deal with gossip getting out of hand?

Felt everything was going smoothly with your team?

We asked leaders how they wanted to feel on a consistent basis and they told us:

"I want to feel confident in my leadership decisions, that my team respects me and that I can be my authentic self."

Our research found that there were 3 critical elements to successful leadership: 

A Leadership OS

By having a bespoke "Operating System" that is calibrated specifically for you, you'll be able to make good leadership decisions consistently.

Human Skills

Understanding patterns of human behaviour will give us the tools we need to gain respect within our team and Lead effectively.

Self Confidence

You will create the confidence so that you can Lead authentically as yourself. You will have the confidence to Lead in your own unique way.

These 3 critical elements, when combined,
make leadership easier and less stressful.

And this is why the audacious leadership Mastermind was developed

Creating a community that, together, supports each other to successfully achieve the 3 critical elements of leadership.

Some of the topics that will be explored and covered:

How can we lead if we are not clearly defining what Leadership is and what Leadership isn’t?
During this discussion, we will uncover 6 critical elements that all Great Leaders execute.
Because when you know what they are, you can learn them and execute them too. 

Where ever there is human interaction, there will be misunderstanding, frustration, conflict. All of these lead to Stress and Anxiety, particularly for the Leader who has to resolve these issues. 
Discover a way to remove the Stress and Anxiety, and create purpose driven conversations that generate productive solutions.

The modern day Leader needs to be emotionally fit and agile. 
Workplace Wellbeing is one of the biggest elements of a great team culture. 

You will discover and learn about emotions, what they are, how they can infect and impact the entire team in a matter of minutes. 
You will be equipped with the strategies and wisdom to deal with all the emotional situations that arise in Leadership and remain in a highly functional state.

There are currently 5 different generations in the workplace. Each generation has their own way that they like to be Led. 
If you don’t know how to Lead each generation effectively, individually and collectively, you will experience a lot of discord, frustration and HR problems. 

Leadership is a tough job and it is Stressful and riddled with Anxiety. 

Most Leaders are questioning their capacity to Lead daily.

Even more, in this topic, we will unpack how to help reduce the Stress and Anxiety levels in our teams and team members. 
When you really understand Stress and Anxiety, it removes a massive weight from your shoulders. 

You face time and budgetary constraints each and every day as a Leader. 

Discover tools, strategies and learnings that will maximise the time available and reduce wasted time through mistakes.

Leadership is all about Influencing others. 

What if you had a framework that if you followed and used would increase your influence ten fold?

This is what we will share, unpack and implement in this element. 

Leadership is about the relationships you build with your team and those around you. 

I will share with you a system that is so easy, you cannot help but create long lasting, natural, meaningful and sustainable relationships.

The ability to understand and know the person in front of you, in your team or even your whole team dynamic is a game changer. 

It gives you a head start. It enables you to be 2 or 3 steps ahead of the game, which is an incredible advantage as a Leader. 

For me personally, this has been a game changer and I use it daily in my Leadership roles.

The power of momentum when harnessed and sustained, makes your team an unstoppable force. 

Leading a high functioning, high achieving team is as easy as a hot knife moving through butter. 

How do you create this Momentum, all the secrets will be revealed in this discussion.

We never ever see the world the way the world actually is. 

There are many different filters that are used to create the reality we experience. 

Here is the kicker, everyone creates their own version of reality.

A high functioning team has a very clear focus on ONE reality. In this topic we unpack the filters used and how, we the Leader, can understand how our teams are creating their own realities and help them to align with the ONE reality. 

These are just some of the topics we will cover in the Audacious Leadership Mastermind. There are currently over 25 topics to be discussed and more are being researched and developed. This is an ever evolving Mastermind, staying on point with current Leadership developments and trends.

the audacious leadership Mastermind is all about the "soft skills" required to be a great leader

When we understand patterns of Human Behaviour we can predict what people will do and how they will react. The patterns of Human Behaviour that will be shared are all evidence / fact based models. What you will learn and discover will give you the "soft skills" to Lead effectively, strongly and authentically for the rest of your Leadership career and beyond.
