HERE ARE THE 15 COURSES INCLUDED IN THE SCIENCE OF LEADERSHIP ACADEMY WITH THE DURATION OF EACH VIDEO MODULE (MM:SS).:
THE SCIENCE OF FINDING TIME TO BE A LEADER (0:51:47)
One of the reasons that billionaires like Warren Buffett, Jeff Bezos and Mark Cuban have reached such heights is that their goals are clear and their days are laser-focused. There are four kinds of work that consume leaders’ time: Green Light, Yellow Light, Orange Light and Red Light Work. But only Green Light Work is goal focused and will make you an effective leader. We’ll show you how to outline your goals, establish your passion for those goals and then cut it down to what you need to do today to reach those goals.
Module 1 – Focus on Clearly Defined Goals (19:54)
Module 2 – Yellow, Orange and Red Light Work (13:38)
Module 3 – The 7 P’s of Delegation (18:15)
THE SCIENCE OF GIVING CONSTRUCTIVE FEEDBACK (1:06:02)
A Leadership IQ study found that 81% of leaders avoid giving tough feedback because they’re afraid the recipient will respond badly (with anger, denial, blame or excuses). Fact-based conversations allow you to speak candidly without making people angry so you can turn tough conversations into coaching conversations that result in positive behavioral change. We’ll show you how to strip feedback messages of any emotional baggage and stick to the facts so defenses stay low and employees can make the “corrective leap” you want.
Module 1 – Setting the Right Goals for Feedback Conversations (4:53)
Module 2 – Fact Based Communication – The FIRE Model (10:36)
Module 3 – Skills & Attitude Determine Performance/Create a Performance Grid (4:59)

Module 6 – Feedback Conversations with Talented Terrors (14:07)
THE SCIENCE OF GREAT COACHING (01:08:23)
Managing has its place, especially when there’s a crisis, but it’s coaching that instills inspiration and confidence in people and challenges them to grow, develop and unleash their full potential. Coaching is intrinsic; it examines psychological considerations: Why do you want to do certain things? Where do you see yourself going? What is it that’s driving you right now? that encourage employees to develop emotional connections to their work so they want to be high performers. We’ll work with you on developing the five big coaching competencies of Mindset, Goal-Setting, Framing, Listening and Questioning.
Module 1 – The Coaching Mindset (12:05)
Module 2 – Coaching with HARD Goals (21:19)
Module 3 – Positive Reframing (14:47)
Module 4 – Listening (20:12)
THE SCIENCE OF HARD GOALS (01:21:14)
Most leaders fail to set goals that are gutsy and challenging enough to result in something great. HARD Goals (Heartfelt, Animated, Required and Difficult) “amp up” regular goals and push us past road blocks like achievable and realistic (found in SMART goals). We’ll draw from the research behind the bestseller HARD Goals to show you how to set meaningful goals for yourself and others that result in great achievements.
