Prepare your team for the next 12 months with a cultural shift that will give you at least a 50% increase in productivity (as well as happiness)

One of the biggest challenges for scale up entrepreneurs is ensuring that their culture, team and leadership reflects the speed of growth.

In order to have a 10X growth in revenues and profits you also need to have a 10X growth in your people, their mindset, their productivity and their overall happiness.

With 40% of the skilled workforce today considering a total career change, finding and holding onto the top talent in your team should be your #1 priority.

The world has changed, however unfortunately our style of leadership has not. The traditional “Command & Control” style of leadership that continues to dominate 92% of organizations today is incapable of inspiring the level of commitment, innovation, collaboration and performance needed for growth in today’s ever-changing, disruptive world.

No leader or organization can win in the workplace or in the marketplace by continuing to rely on outdated, short-term “carrot & stick” methods of driving performance. People don’t just want to be motivated, they want to be inspired—and contrary to what most people believe, inspiring others is a learnable skill. Anyone can be this kind of leader. Everyone needs this kind of leader. The antidote to Command & Control is Trust & Inspire.

This one week live virtual microschool will ensure you have a practical and easy to implement plan that will allow you to build a culture of trust, which always results in a high performance, happy, productive team achieving top results. Your team and your future hires will thank you. Your company will be sought after as an awesome place to work.

Its time to turn the great disruption into your greatest opportunity for growth.

The Trust & Inspire Faculty

Over five days you will work with our top faculty members, discovering incredibly innovative and cutting edge strategies, that allow you to create a high impact culture for 2022 and beyond

Each Faculty Member has been personally trained by Stephen M. R. Covey.
