Be the leader that fills the gap...

Over 60% of employees say the #1 thing they want from their leader is for him/her to be inspirational--yet when you ask those same employees, "Is your leader inspirational?", only 11% say yes! Relatedly, an astonishing 70% of employees are disengaged, falling far short of their maximum productivity. You can be the leader that steps up and elevates the people and their performance. And despite conventional logic, inspiration isn't a mysterious, fickle force--it can be codified and coaxed and you'll have the system to make it happen!

The Inspirational Leader Course Curriculum

This online course is designed for those seeking to master inspirational leadership, even transform--not for those merely seeking a tip or two and who aren't willing to work to foster change. Accordingly, the course is packed with everything you need to double your IQ (Inspirational Quotient). The course embraces key adult learning principles to maximize engagement/retention. The material can be "binge-consumed" or paced out over 6 weeks (1 lesson/week) with Practice Prompts provided for each week to help practice/ingrain that lesson. A pre and post IQ (Inspirational Quotient) Test are provided so the student can measure results from taking the course, a Companion Workbook is included to help students retain key concepts, and students have the ability to engage in conversation with each other about each lesson. Many bonus items are also included as detailed below.

You can measure your results

The Inspirational Leader course comes with the IQ (Inspirational Quotient) Test--a numerically scored pre and post test that measures your depth of subject matter knowledge and confidence to act on it before and after you take the course. In other words, you'll get a pre and post IQ score. You'll see your inspirational leadership skills increase in many ways:

  • Learn the art and science of communicating in a way that inspires the troops. Using the "3P Model of Inspiring Communication", anyone can inspire with their words--even introverts.

  • Learn how to inspire others by building their self-confidence (and your own)--the "4 Components of Confidence Building" will be your guide.

  • Learn how to construct a truly inspiring vision that everyone can passionately rally around via a powerful metaphor/framework called "The Vision-Building Building".

  • Learn how to show up as caring in the ways coworkers want you to by practicing "The Caring Core". Discover how to thoughtfully administer meaningful rewards & recognition and demonstrate passion for employees personal growth.

  • Gain new appreciation for the importance of granting autonomy to inspire employees. Learn about the dark side of empowering others and how to grant "Intelligent Autonomy". Powerfully enable using the "Enable Table" framework.

  • Learn how to deeply inspire by creating meaning for your employees. The "5 Meaning Multipliers" will help you create meaning in and at work.

(Frequently Asked Questions)

  • Do you offer a money back guarantee?

    Yes! We're that confident that you'll be more than satisfied with the course and all that went into it. On the outside chance you'd desire a refund, please read our refund policy here.

  • How long does it take to complete the course?

    If you're "bingeing", it takes about 4-5 hours total to watch all the video lessons (including the intro), watch/read/complete all the bonus materials, complete the Workbook, and take the IQ (Inspirational Quotient) pre and post tests. Of course, you can spend as much time as you'd like reflecting on the material and completing the exercises contained within the course. As for the core video-based lessons, we recommend spreading the lessons out over 6 weeks (1 lesson/week) and engaging in the Practice Prompts provided for each week's lesson. That measured pace would take 6 weeks. But either method, "bingeing" in 4-5 hours or taking 6 weeks to practice and ingrain what you've learned, can be used.

  • Once I purchase the course, does it ever expire?

    No, you can return to it as often as you'd like! We do recommend, however, that once you start the course, either "binge" it, or ideally stick to the 6-week plan the course is designed for. We want you to see the course through to completion in a timely manner to help you double your IQ (Inspirational Quotient)!

  • Can I watch the videos on any device?

    Absolutely. They're all laptop, desktop, or mobile device friendly.
