Your parents told you that you didn’t have to learn everything at once. They encouraged you by suggesting small steps. You took piano lessons, not a single lesson, because no one expected you to become a virtuoso in a weekend. Effective leadership development should be like that too, but rarely is it approached in that manner.
I’m writing this to you if you want to be a better leader. You know you could serve your team and your organization better. You want to be more successful for yourself too – and you know that improving your leadership skills can help you reach your goals.
I’m writing this to you if you need to be a better leader. Maybe the job has you stressed and anxious. Maybe your boss has said you need to improve, or you will be demoted or let go.
Am I Talking to You?
If you are still reading, you know that leadership development is important. But you are frustrated because even if you have attended some workshops, you aren’t growing the way you want to. While the two-day workshop has a place in our learning life (we have several – you could start here), you become a better cook, woodworker, listener, or leader one step at a time.
We reach our goals one step at a time. One day at a time. One action at a time. In this case, one leadership skill at a time.
That is what effective leadership development looks like, too.
Remember Mom and Dad? They said, learn something today, practice it, then you can learn something new. Think about anything at which you are proficient. You didn’t get to proficiency by a single event or moment in time. You got there a little at a time, with practice.
The Remarkable Way
We learn through daily, diligent, intentional practice. A clear focus on your goal. Guidance and feedback from people who have a valuable perspective and care about your progress. We learn and grow by the day, week, and month, not only from the amazing experience or a Damascus Road moment.
That is why we created The Remarkable Way. It is a way for daily, weekly, and monthly practice of important skills that help you grow as a leader. It is designed to help you apply valuable lessons, ideas, and practices in the real world, as you do your work.
One skill at a time, one month at a time, with daily reminders and inspirations to aid, inspire, and encourage you. A completely different way to grow as a leader, created for the way we learn and lead. Engineered to be truly effective leadership development. To help you become the leader you both want and need to be.
We have recently made it easier for you to join us as a member, and I’d love for you to be our next one. You can learn everything about it here. How it will help you lead better from the first day. And most importantly, how little calendar time is required for you to take full advantage of this leadership and life changing process.
