What You Will Learn

Think of the most successful people in the world and the businesses that they run. Which ones would you consider role models and why? In this program, you'll learn what it means to be a role model in business and as a leader and why it's important. You'll then learn how to evaluate your performance in comparison to the framework that outlines what those things are.

Overall learning objectives:

  • The 12 factors that make role model leaders and businesses uncommonly successful. Including examples, suggested resources, skills training, and knowledge to apply them to your unique situation.

  • How to start operating strategically which will give you more control of your outcomes.

  • How to identify and align your fundamental core with your actions for bigger impact, improved culture, and higher efficiency overall.

  • Every module contains suggestions for practical application for different levels of complexity and sophistication, homework assignments that you will apply to real-world situations so that you immediately start to see results, and a check for understanding quiz.

Who is this Best For?

The The Role Model Way™ Advanced Leadership Academy is for anyone who wants to make a bigger positive impact. The content provides knowledge, tools, and framework to empower future leaders, motivated managers/teams, and business owners to be Actionaries. Actionaries are the people who bring Visions to life whether their own or someone else's.

The Role Model Way™ Advanced Leadership Academy is for you if any of these situations apply:

  • You want to know a proven system for driving continuous improvement and sustaining momentum.
  • You've just hired new up and coming leaders and you want to ensure they contribute to the future success of your organization. AKA develop intrapreneurs.
  • You want to ensure your future leaders are prepared to step into management and leadership roles.
  • You are a business owner who understands the value of being surrounded by capable people who know how to strategize and recognize your company's strengths and identify opportunities.
  • You are a startup and want to be prepared for the real business world when you're ready to launch.
  • You are a startup dedicated to responsibly managing the funds you've gratefully been (or will soon be) awarded.
  • Individual. You've just started a new management position and really want to contribute and play a key role in the success of your team and organization. 
  • You've recently been promoted and you want to show everyone you were the right choice for the position.

Why now?

“Average” is no longer a viable business model. Businesses that used to get by on average products, average managers, even average to poor customer service are quickly being overtaken by competitors (think taxi service). In the new world we live in where reviews rule, options abound, and word of mouth happens in the click of a button, staying ahead of the curve is a must!

Frequently Asked Questions

If the answer to your question isn't here contact us!

Two reasons.

1. There are 12 factors in The Role Model Way™ Performance Improvement Framework and we want to ensure you get maximum results by covering each on in detail. 

2. Developing skills and habits that create lasting change takes time. Many 1 off and individual training sessions have proven to be ineffective in the long run. Typically, a person retains only a small portion of what they heard or saw and then goes back to work without time to implement much of what they learned. 

By building on concepts one more at a time, and having assignments to do between modules, you will actually apply what you've learned.

The Role Model Way!™ Organizational Learning and Leadership Development System is based on core leadership concepts and best practices from Role Model businesses and leaders from all industries. The core concepts apply universally and are then applied in ways that make sense for your unique industry, business model, and values. 

I've never had any one request a refund for a service that I have provided and I don't expect that to start happening now. However, I understand your concern.

Another reason for offering this program as a pilot is that you lower the financial risk to yourself by paying a lower fee. That said, I do not want anyone to feel they have not spent their money wisely. 

You may apply for a refund and cancel participation in the program in the first 30 days of paying or at the end of the course, if you feel you did not get a benefit from it. You must show that you attempted to take in the content and do the work. 

The first module of the course contains all the welcome material including information about choosing your welcome item of choice! All the items are from an eco-friendly source and meant to be something you can use, not just put on a shelf or toss. 

You can also opt to donate your swag cost, and we'll be sure it gets to The World Wildlife Fund, our currently highlighted nonprofit.

Absolutely! We'd love for you to give it a try on your own or with your team and see how you do. If you find that you need help applying it to your situation or holding yourselves accountable contact us to discuss the coaching add-on options. 

#RoleModelUp is a hastag we use to denote the feeling of readiness to step up and create a bigger positive impact. When you are ready to Role Model Up, you're ready to do what it takes to be the effective and influential leader you were meant to be!
