Unleash Your Potential and Amplify Your Leadership Abilities with the Engaged Leader Circle.

Nothing Prepares You for the Challenges of Leadership

As a leader, your job is never easy. You're constantly juggling multiple priorities, dealing with complex challenges, and trying to keep your team motivated and productive. And to top it off, you never seem to have enough time to get everything done.

Sound familiar? You're not alone. Being a leader is hard, and nobody prepares you for it. But what if I told you that there's a way to unlock your full potential as a leader?

At Institute Success, we understand the unique challenges that leaders like you face every day. We know what it's like to feel like you don't have all the answers, or to struggle to balance your personal and professional growth with the demands of your job.

That's why we created the Engaged Leader Circle – a comprehensive leadership development community designed specifically for busy leaders like you.

Become an Exceptional Leader Who Inspires Others’ Loyalty, Collaboration and Professional Best.

When leaders find themselves asking, “Why won’t they just do what I need them to do?” there is usually a simple answer.

The symptoms are clear. You find yourself frustrated because it’s so obvious to you what they need to do. Yet, for some reason, they don’t hear your message.

This leads to you finding yourself overwhelmed. There’s so much to be done, the temptation is to jump in and fix the problem. Yet there’s an endless stream of meetings and fire-fighting. No matter how many productivity hacks you’ve mastered… there’s not enough time.

The answer is to realize you’ve accidentally trained your team to be overly dependent on you. The more you help, the more they seem to need you.

The good news is it’s possible to resolve this and accelerate your team’s successes. As you allow your team to become less dependent on you, they’ll feel more empowered, and proud of what they create. The quality of the work they create will improve. They’ll hold each other accountable, and build greater levels of trust within the team. 

 We have one focus: to help you become an even more successful leader.

What Institute Success has for you is simple. It's the distillation of decades of experience, mistakes, and life doing the hard work of leadership in the trenches. It's from people who have been there and done it themselves.

"It's a leadership accelerator..."

The Engaged Leader™ program is a leadership accelerator...

John Comly - CEO American Safety Council

One of the really unique benefits is on-boarding senior leaders, as it can be really challenging to integrate into an existing management team. 

It's enabled all of us to come together and work effectively together much faster than we would have otherwise. If you get it right, you're pouring kerosene on the fire, and you are accelerating the building of trust and as a result productivity explodes...

Frequently Asked Questions

What makes this program different?

It’s personalized. Working with group and coaches, you will identify your own version of success and what areas you want to personally grow in as a leader.

It’s hands-on.  We believe that you can’t learn how to play tennis by reading a book. Instead, you have to get out on the court and practice. You will not only learn the concepts, you will have the opportunity to integrate them into your workplace. 

It’s community focused.  You will have the opportunity to learn and grow alongside like-minded leaders.   

It’s focused on sustainability.  It’s built in a way you can retain and apply the knowledge for sustainable growth. Each month you will learn new skills and receive practical tools you need to accelerate the achievement of your most important goals. Each month will build upon the prior months learning and growth. You will walk away with a plan for what’s next for you as a leader.

Who will benefit most from The Engaged Leader™ CIRCLE Program?

Whether you are a business owner, leader or manager, this program will help you grow into your full potential and understand how to advance as a leader.

Is Engaged Leader™ Circle Better for a single leader, or a complete team?

There are benefits to both. You can attend an individual leader or bring your team to develop your leadership skills together. 

What is the time commitment?

You'll be able to get benefit from 1 hour per month. The other view you could take is that this is going to give you the support and resources to navigate challenges more quickly as you are no longer be going to have to figure it out on your own. 

Is this in person on virtual?

The meetings and sessions are virtual and hosted on Zoom. 

Why do you include an assessment as part of the program?

The assessments used in the Engaged Leader™ Circle program are the foundation of everything you will learn. They will help you better understand yourself and others. In particular, you will learn your communication and behavioral preferences, why you do what you do and your thinking preferences. You will also better understand how to effectively communicate and motivate others based on their preferences.

What is expected between sessions?

There is nothing expected between masterclasses, The time you invest is totally up to you. We know that time is something no leader has enough of, so we work around you, not the other way around. We may recommend resources that we know could accelerate you, however, you are the expert of you and we would recommend that less in more initially. Overwhelm is the enemy here and will stop you in your tracks.

How frequently does the program run?

Initially we are looking for 150 leaders in our first cohort, once the places are filled we will be moving to a waiting list and anticipate opening the doors once a quarter.
