7:30 am? Are you kidding me?
Ever have your day taken away from you? After my past evening classes
, 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.
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?
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...
