Learn how to be a leader of leaders by transforming your followers to be a team of leaders.
To be competitive in the 21st century, our teams need to be highly productive and autonomous. The world is changing at an enormous pace. Industries, such as digital marketing and crypto-currency, that are thriving today did not exist merely a decade ago. At the same time, some industries may cease to exist in the foreseeable future. To be able to adapt, react, and compete in such a fast-changing environment, you need a team that is highly motivated, highly agile, highly productive, and highly efficient. In other words, you can no longer just have a team of followers, you need a team of leaders. You, need to become the leader of leaders.
For the best part of the 20th century, most of the business world subscribes to the concept of Scientific Management. A management philosophy made famous by Frederick Taylor back in 1918. Taylor proposed, to maximize efficiency, management needs to use proper reward and punishment to motivate workers. This was the origin of the Carrots and Sticks management style. A hundred years later, most of the business world is still using some form of carrots and sticks system.
This basic reward and punishment system worked wonders when most workers are in factories. When most of the work is repetitive and requires little cognitive functions, the system proposed by Taylor creates highly productive teams.
As the world moved more into a service economy, the need for factory workers diminished dramatically. Thus, scientific management can no longer create productive teams. Instead, we found that the old reward and punishment system demotivates workers, the same system that used to work now creates disgruntled team members. Taylorism is no longer applicable.
The psychology world has known what motivates people for a long time. In 1943, Abraham Maslow published the Hierarchy of Needs. Maslow proposed as needs are fulfilled, one moves from physiological needs, such as food, water, and safety, to psychological needs such as belongings and self-esteem, and ultimately toward self-actualization.
While Taylorism addresses physiological needs, we need a system that addresses the higher-level of needs. The business world needs to climb the Hierarchy of Needs.
Instead of assuming workers as followers, we need to assume our team members are leaders. Better yet, we need an environment where we cultivate and grow leaders. The Leader of Leaders program is designed to provide you with practical tools to create such an environment.

Each lesson has all 3 components. Participants are required to complete the asynchronous video lesson as well as the corresponding exercise prior to joining each synchronous session. The asynchronous video lessons provide foundational information for each lesson. Participants can go through the video at their own pace. The offline exercises are designed to put the lessons to use. Through these exercises, participants learn to apply the skills in their particular business cases. The synchronous discussion sessions are the most important piece of the puzzle. These discussion sessions allow participants to clear any misunderstanding of the material.
