The Influential Leader

Become a More Influential Leader

A 2-Day experience that will show you how to be a better leader, create better leaders, and get the absolute best out of the people you are leading.

Learn the daily behaviors that inspire your team to achieve higher performance.

Influential Leader will help you:


Understand precisely what you can do to take your leadership to the next level


Cultivate a culture that inspires your team to achieve at their highest potential


Develop a stronger sense of purpose in your role as a leader

Do you want to become a better leader?

The problem is that most leaders have a misunderstanding of what true leadership looks like and a lack of knowing exactly what they need to do to get the most and best out of their team.

Your team is a reflection of your leadership

As a result, most leaders feel burnt out, exhausted, and overwhelmed because their team: 

It’s simple, if you do these 7 behaviors as a leader your team will achieve

We know how frustrating it can be for a well-intentioned leader to feel like they’re bending over backwards doing everything they know to do, and working as hard as they possibly can, only to be left feeling like they are falling further and further behind. 

We know because we’ve been there. Throughout the course of our career, our senior leadership team has launched 5 different multi-7 figure businesses and an 8 figure business. 

We’ve built organizations of hundreds of people and have consulted with some of the largest leadership teams in the world. We know that it’s both overwhelming for the leaders and discouraging to the team members when a team doesn’t perform to its highest potential. 

And, after decades of experience, and years of academic studies in the form of master’s degrees and proprietary research conducted for our published books and world-renowned presentations, we have realized that there are 7 essential behaviors that every leader must engage in to draw out the best in the people around them. 

But if you do not know what the behaviors are, or if you fail to do them, then you are guaranteed to have cracks in your culture that will inevitably erode your team’s ability to reach their peak performance. 

Follow A Proven Process

We are a personal brand strategy firm AND a business strategy firm which means our curriculum encompasses everything you need to build your personal brand and grow your business. They are intertwined, after all.

And to help you get there, we have taken 20 years of trial-and-error experience, thousands of hours of researching, learning and interviewing today’s top thought leaders, hundreds of thousands of dollars in courses, coaching, consultants, agents, and masterminds as well as working with some of the top personal brands in the world and condensed everything we have both learned and done into 4 simple phases.


1. Branding

Develop the mission, purpose, and business plan for your personal brand, build your body of content, and learn how to master the art of the spoken word.

2. Marketing

4. Scaling

Learn how to build a sales team, scale your business and become an influential leader that people want to follow.

Our members only live event series is comprised of 1 comprehensive curriculum with 4 compounding phases broken down into 12 original topics of unique and specific content all geared to help you grow your income, scale your business and impact millions of people.

You will learn, do the work and get live coaching on the spot

This IS not a typical “take great notes and good luck” kind of workshop.

In fact, most of our attendees start implementing the strategies while they’re in the session!  We leverage large group teaching, small group sessions, 1:1 coaching, and insightful interventions because we know that is what will get you the fastest results.

Leadership Development is very often over-complicated and impractical in its application. But after researching and compiling the best leadership principles for over two decades, we have discovered the reality is that there is primarily 1 massive problem every individual leader needs to overcome before they can truly activate a group of people. And once they get past that hurdle, then there are 7 core behaviors that establish the foundation of great leadership.

In this enlightening, empowering, and entertaining 2-day experience, you will learn the clear and necessary steps you can take to make yourself and those around you a better leader.

Give yourself and your team permission to take your leadership to the next level by joining us at this upcoming event!

Poor leadership is the reason why organizations, companies, and teams fail.

The cost of leading ineffectively is massive.

It not only has great costs to the team but also to the leader. When one person doesn’t do a good job, it has a linear, negative impact but when a leader doesn’t do a good job it has an exponentially negative impact. It can thwart their own career growth, result in the loss team members, destroy productivity, ruin reputations create dangerous attitudes and deliver weak results for the entire organization. The impacts of poor leadership are a threat to any company, regardless of size.

Oddly enough, most leaders just assume they’re good at leadership because they’ve been successful at everything else, they’ve ever done. Which is probably how you found yourself in leadership to begin with. The problem is that several, if not most of the traits that make someone successful as an individual performer become an effectiveness-limiting liability of a collaborative leader.

It’s very much a matter of what got you here as a performer, won’t get you there as a leader.”

Too many people try to figure out leadership all on their own, or they think they know it all just because they have “years of experience.” In reality though, most have 1-2 years of real experience just repeated over and over again. What worked “then” won’t necessarily work now. If you are not changing and growing as a leader, your team is not growing which means you could be the one holding them back.

It’s not that you can’t learn these techniques and strategies somewhere else. It’s just that the amount of time and experience it takes to properly distill and test all of the various different leadership philosophies is expensive, risky, and overwhelming.

You could try to glean the best and most important pieces of insight from random courses and a speaking coach who charges the amount of your monthly mortgage or you could spend two days at our small group, interactive workshop, “World Class Presentation Craft,” and learn how the top presenters create content, position themselves as thought leaders and deliver in a way that makes people say, “I want more of that!” .

To put it  in perspective. You could spend... 

$ 0
on different coaching programs, masterminds, courses, and events (been there)
$ 0
getting an MBA (done that)


of dollars in mistakes and opportunity cost

Of course you could also decide not to invest in your (or your team’s) leadership development at all – and that would be the single most expensive decision of all.

Or you could give us 2-days and learn a systematic and proven model for leadership development that is based on proven results from a team of people who have been academic researchers, top-rated global leadership thought-leaders, and actual real life 8-figure entrepreneurs.


The next level of results requires the next level of thinking and when it comes to elevating your leadership thinking, we know what it takes.


It’s an investment that will pay you back for years and years to come. For every leader who makes 1 good decision or avoids 1 bad decision, this small short-term investment will be paying you dividends for the rest of your career.


We realize it’s possible that you’ve invested into other leadership training programs only to be underwhelmed by what you learned – we have too. And that’s why, after more than two decades of study, and hundreds of thousands of dollars invested, we decided to build our own curriculum designed for the modern influential leader.

For you, and/or your team, this will simplify the process of what it takes to become a better leader. You will walk away with a clear understanding of what you need to do each and every day to maximize the performance of the people you’re leading. You’re learning time-tested, well-researched, and field-proven insights and tactics that you can apply immediately. We feel confident this will be one of the best ways you can invest into yourself and grow your leadership abilities.
