First, lead yourself well.
Every leader must lead themselves well. Your potential to lead others is a direct result of how you lead yourself. Personal leadership always comes before team leadership. Our coaching journey starts with where you are and where you want to go. Together we create a life plan that levels up your faith, focus, freedom, and fulfillment.
Second, executive leadership
Every senior leader must set direction, set speed, set risk, set resources, and set culture. Those five universal tasks represent where every senior leader should invest at least 80 percent of their time internally to the company if they want to succeed. Neglect any of those five and you and the company will suffer. This section of the program utilizes Dr. Stephen Graves, Five Tasks curriculum:
