7:30 am? Are you kidding me?
Ever have your day taken away from you? After my past evening classes and workshops, I've often heard from people who didn't make it. Early morning is an insurance policy against the ravages of the day; in previous cohorts, attendance has been solid.
Not a morning person? Maybe you'll discover extra time you never knew you could find. And leveraging times we're not in high demand is a critical success factor for leaders.
(There's a chance that we'll actually start the next cohort at 8, if there's enough "popular demand.")
How much time will I have to spend on this?
If you're super-achivement-oriented, few hours a week, between program sessions, 1:1s and reading/homework.
Most readings are blog posts and brief articles. Things you can knock out on your commute. Assignments will ask you to recast the way you view -- and possibly do -- your existing work. To think about things you're already thinking about. Differently.
How do the 1:1s work?
The 1:1s are customized discussions, based on your own current situation. They're a time for me to help you to meet the material, where you are! Logistically, the 1:1s are available with me in Real Life the same day as the program sessions. (Phone or Skype sessions are also possible.)
Assignments -- that sounds like homework! Can you post some of the assignments?
Program topics and syllabus are posted here. Participants come to the program with different experiences, and each group has a different flavor. This creates context for any assignments; they don't really stand alone. I customize the program sessions for each group, and the 1:1s for each person in the program.
Can you do a course like this for a group of managers at our organization?
Yes, though the pricing will look different, depending on your needs. I'd love to talk with you about it!
Can I get a discount?
I sometimes offer discounted services to not-for-profit organizations.
If you work in a for-profit venture, and your company doesn't have a budget for "professional development," maybe they should. Ask your manager, or HR. There's a pretty solid business case for people being effective leaders.
Need backup making this business case? Contact me, let's talk. I've got a separate FAQ for questions I've gotten from CEOs/HR leads; I'd love to talk with your manager, too.
What if I'm not in New York?
I don't plan to open the program to remote participants. I've had conversations about offering a version of the program in both San Francisco and Chicago. Please reach out if you're interested.
I don't see my question here...
