Becoming Who You Really Are: How to Grow Yourself and Your Organization

Imagine

  • What would happen if leadership development was radically altered?
  • What if all your people spent 3-5 minutes a day for 100 days with a world class leadership coach who refused to tell them what to do?
  • What if everyone spent 3-5 more minutes imagining a better version of themselves?
  • What would happen if every manager, every employee became a leader?

How Does It Work? 4 Steps:

Watch. In this unique learning journey you will get an email each day that links to a 3-5 minute video.  In that video, Professor Robert Quinn shares an inspiring story from his 40 years of working with organizations across the world.  Here's a sample of Bob's Day 1 video.

 

Reflect. Each story is followed by 2 simple questions.  You post your answers to your online community.

Consolidate. Each week you consolidate - squeeze the learning of each day into a single statement of learning for the week. 

Transform: You share successes and transform each member of your learning community with aspiration.  As you do you turn individual leadership development into organizational change.

Results: After 100 days of this process, you and your team will have ingrained new perspectives, new practices, and new habits of interaction with colleagues, friends and family that will transform your life, transform your relationships, and transform the impact you have on others.

Program Structure

"Becoming Who You Really Are" is a comprehensive 100-day course that is designed to allow you to dive deeply into areas where transformation is most needed in your life, relationships, and the impact you have on others. This online course includes five separate, 4-week program chapters. Each 4-week (20-day) chapter is also available to take individually or can be combined to create the complete 100-day online course experience.

VP of Engineering, Chester Kustarz from DUO Security had this to say about his 100 days experience:

" Our goals:
- Build a management team centered around positive leadership
- Find training resources to improve our management and leadership abilities

The content is spot on for our goal of positive leadership. It provides many different layers and approaches to teach the material. By making it a daily habit, it becomes a constant reminder of the type of leaders we aspire to be. The format is perfect for rolling it out at our organization. It is low cost. Multiple sessions allow us to send another batch of leaders through the training. It is remote learning which makes it accessible by all."
