Foundational Mindsets for Elite Leaders

John Rex,Executive Coach, Former CFO, Microsoft North America

Most leaders attain a certain level of success and then hit a bewildering glass ceiling they can’t seem to smash. They hear they need to take their leadership to the “next level,” yet no one bothers to explain what that means, much less how to do it.

But laying the foundations of elite leadership is more straightforward than many leaders expect — and you don’t have to change your very nature to achieve it. Fundamentally, reframing how you look at the world – and your place in it – is the surest and fastest way to build the muscle that will catapult you to the ranks of elite leaders.

In this fast-paced, thought-provoking workshop, you’ll learn simple and effective ways to reimagine your success formula while staying true to who you are and avoiding the trap of corporate politics.

  • Learn the two transformational mindset shifts that ensure you’ll make the right calls under fire.
  • Find out how to always show up confidently, even in the face of seemingly impossible odds.
  • Discover the secret to cultivating loyal followership and developing the superpower to influence others at scale.
