Why we’re giving away leadership training for free
One of the main reasons why I founded Leadership Excursion Co. was because, during my career as a technology executive, I had a difficult time finding and recruiting resources who had leadership experience.
I had access to arguably the most intelligent and well-educated applicants on earth. These were resources who had degrees in computer science, physics, and math. They obtained MBA’s from the best Universities and held all types of technical certifications. Although I had access to this pool of resources, it was rare to find anyone who had sound leadership skills or experience.
Why, you ask?
Although millions of people have earned degrees or certifications, leadership is rarely taught in Universities or other educational institutions. In addition, organizations continue to promote team members into management positions without providing any leadership training. The results are disastrous with a reported 60% of first-time managers failing within their first year.
Statistics also show that 40% of managers fail in general. Ouch!
These types of failure rates hurt both businesses and individuals and it’s completely avoidable. This is why I provide free leadership training in a weekly blog post and video. I want to share everything I know about leadership because I understand that the absence of effective leadership can bring people and companies to their knees.
In many cases, sound leadership is the difference between failure and success.
How do you do this for free?
We specialize in leadership training and we love it because it is so important. The more leadership training you receive, the better.
However, I invite you to ask yourself this.
What happens after training is over? What actions do you take when you get back to the office? Do you slip into your old ways of doing things, or do you roll up your sleeves and go to work? Do you know how to incorporate changes into your personal or professional life? Do you ever have an opportunity to practice new skills before putting them to use?
We give away leadership training for free because our business model focuses on the difficult part. The roll up your sleeves and get to work part.
We even provide opportunities for you to practice your new leadership skills before you head back to your personal life or working environment. You’ll have opportunities to be uncomfortable, fail, laugh, and grow simply because these are the moments when we, as humans, do our best learning.
Come one, Come all
