Leading to Learn

Accelerator

Part book study, part guided learning program with Katie Anderson… take the lessons off the page and into your life with the Leading to Learn Accelerator Foundations.

Learn to be a more intentional, people-centered leader, and build a meaningful legacy.

To the continuously learning leader who’s feeling the pressure to deliver business outcomes…have all the answers to all the questions…to create time for the important people in your life and for yourself…while also trying to figure out what success in your career really looks like to you:

What if, you stopped being everything to everyone, and instead implemented one simple practice after the next to make the impact your heart is aligned with for…day after day after day?

Here’s why simple practices are your best bet:

If you’re facing a challenge, or you feel like you’re spinning in an endless cycle of problems and competing priorities, taking real, tangible and focused action that moves you from simply reacting, to acting….with purpose.

And when you know your purpose, you respond with higher awareness.

You see, it’s easy to believe that to be a great leader or coach you have to be the expert in the room with all the answers.

But, what if that belief is not true?

Not only is it not true, it’s also not helpful, because ultimately it leads to you putting out all the fires and completing urgent tasks instead of using your problem-solving skills and your time to address the most impactful challenges to develop people.

Right?

If there’s even a tiny part of you that sees that and says, “That makes total sense,” then keep reading, because what follows could EASILY be the most pivotal moment in your career - the one where you form a crystal clear picture about what you want for your work and your life; the one that finally cements the connection, joy, community and energy that you’re looking for.

Here’s why you’re probably feeling overwhelmed, disillusioned, and a general lack of energy and joy in your work:

There is too much focus on business outcomes….and you are exhausted from trying to address too many priorities

You have a formal leadership title and you aren’t sure just HOW to have the impact you desire, or you feel like you need a formal title to be a leader with influence

Everyone around you is concentrating on the tools and templates….while not understanding their purpose

You and your teams are working on the same problem year after year….and not making any sustainable progress

You believe people-centered leadership is important …. but it feels complicated and you just don’t know HOW it’s done

This should be an exciting time for you.

After years of learning and growing…

You’ve earned the right to have a career and a life that makes you excited to get out of bed every single morning…

You deserve a connection to purpose

You deserve to feel connected to and joyful about your work…

And you absolutely deserve to be able to harness your innate curiosity for learning, your caring for people, and make an impact on the world.

Instead…

You feel like you’re not allowed to make mistakes and fail, and that if you do it’s a problem…

It feels like you’re burned out just by being alive (because there’s so much to do and pressure on you to have all the answers, all the time)…

Intellectually you’re thinking “surely it’s okay to fail and make mistakes” but you can’t stop blaming yourself when that actually happens.

The secret to truly being a more people-centered leader who grows those around them:

Unburdening yourself from the idea of having to have all the answers, all the time.

Imagine what would happen around you if you let go of the belief that it’s your job to deliver knowledge…and instead began to understand that your role is to create the conditions  and space for learning.

Imagine what would happen if you said to your people, “Hey…I’ve decided to do some work on myself, on my own purpose, on my own intentions…”

Can you imagine the impact that would have on the people around you…

Can you imagine the seed of humanity it would plant?

The secret to truly being a more people-centered leader who grows those around them:

Unburdening yourself from the idea of having to have all the answers, all the time.

Imagine what would happen around you if you let go of the belief that it’s your job to deliver knowledge…and instead began to understand that your role is to create the conditions  and space for learning.

Can you imagine the impact that would have on the people around you…

Can you imagine the seed of humanity it would plant?

Here are a few reasons why perhaps you haven’t considered this, or you’re hesitant to choose this route:

1

You’ve been led to believe that to solve complex problems or lead a team in continuous improvement, that you need a Lean Six-Sigma Master Black Belt or some other complex certification process

You don’t. Simple, purposeful practices can have a tremendous impact.

2

You don’t have a leadership title or you just don’t think it’s your place to “lead” anyone. 

What if you thought about it less as leadership, and more as providing direction and nurturing and providing support to those around you, regardless of your formal title or their role?

3

Or if you do have a leadership role, you’re worried that showing this kind of vulnerability, not having all the answers, or knowing exactly HOW to lead effectively is a sign of weakness and you might lose the respect of the people around you.

But what if you’re wrong about that? What if, by showing your own humanness, your challenges, your successes, and your opportunities to improve, on the other side of this is a more fulfilling experience where people begin to engage human to human, instead of role to role?

Intention = Heart + Direction

The number one trait great leaders share?

They are connected to their purpose, and they invest in the humanity of themselves and those around them. They lead with care, curiosity, and courage.  They lead with intention. 

I’m Katie Anderson, internationally recognized leadership and learning coach, consultant, and bestselling author and this is what I believe:

Intentional leadership is one of the most powerful ways to nurture transformation and discovery in yourself and your people, as they learn, grow, develop and succeed, while your business achieves significant results.

It’s also to help you accelerate your skills so that you can make the impact you’ve always wanted to make and leave a legacy, stepping into the leader you want to be.

“I had the privilege of being coached by Katie Anderson in the Leading to Learn Accelerator and it was such a wonderful learning experience for me. It finally helped me understand how to be a better person and eventually a better leader. The program has helped me put into practice how to set direction and support my team, and the importance of patience.”

"Before the Accelerator program, I found myself often frustrated with the some undesired results of my actions and did not understand clearly my role as a leader. After the Accelerator, I learned to follow the leader's role to 1) Set the direction, 2) Provide support, and 3) Improve myself. This program gave me deeper meaning to learn my purpose in my personal and professional life as well as a human being on Earth.. I now feel empowered to lead with intention, and confident on my ability to create patterns of behavior to support my team and our organization."

"Katie helps you see yourself, and know where to grow. She knows how to challenge you to move beyond where you are. She doesn't set your path but she guides you toward identifying and moving forward on your path, and she makes you feel special because her path crosses yours. She doesn't pull you or shove you, but she empowers you to WANT to move. She doesn't offer a quick fix or a guaranteed route to success. She teaches you simple, logical tools that each of us can practice one day at a time to live the life we want to live, no matter what that looks like for any of us. Her stories, wisdom, insight, and expertise are applicable to anyone who believes, 'Stagnation isn't for me.' Katie has been a transformative power in my life, and working with her will yield WAY more than 60 days of value."

“I have always been very introspective but learning the tools to reflect more effectively and developing a habit of writing them down really amplified my commitment to improving myself. I highly recommend this workshop and Accelerator Leadership Program, not only to executives, directors, and managers but also to parents, people that are leaders at heart, people that want to lead with intention and be a people-centered leader.”

" Lean can be very tools oriented but [Katie] brings a lot more of the people side of things: how people interact and how you can get things done with other people. [She] brings a lot of humanity to it. And that’s a great feature."
