Are you ready to answer the heroic call to great leadership?

Have you signed up for my Lead Positive The More Human Way webinar series with Terry “Starbucker” St. Marie yet? Better hurry, it starts back in just two weeks on January 22nd!

The Heroic Leadership Journey calls upon Joseph Campbell’s narrative framework to help leaders see their paths forward and navigate the predictable (and unpredictable) head and tail winds. It consists of six phases: The Call, Resistance to the Call and Meeting Mentors, Threshold Crossing, the Journey, the Supreme Ordeal and Victory, and the Return Home.

It’s a great framework for leaders to create a narrative for their leadership and make a deep and fulfilling heart and mind connection – taking their leadership to a higher, and more human level.

Each webinar introduces one of the six phases and their importance and context to great leadership, and then Kathy and Terry explain, using examples and exercises, how you can incorporate each into your personal leadership practice and journey.

At the end of the series you’ll have a practical framework to take your own Heroic Journey to personal and professional success!

After you register, pay the enrollment fee and are confirmed for the series, we’ll immediately send you a recording the first webinar in the series, “The Call,” which was broadcast on December 8th, 2015.

And no worries, if you are registered and miss attending any of the webinars live, you’ll be able to download and listen to all the recordings!

The Content

The remaining 5 webinars will be held from January to March 2016:

Resistance to the Call and Meeting Mentors

January 22 at 10AM PST/1PM EST

What leaders often find the most daunting is putting themselves and their vision out there. Resistance in the form of self-doubt can be all-consuming and paralyzing, even after you know what you need to do. Kathy and Terry will show you how to increase your awareness of your assets and enlist mentors to overcome self-doubt and lead your team on a new path of transformative change.

The Threshold Crossing

January 29 at 10AM PST/1PM EST

Crossing the threshold is your first step to relinquishing the status quo and creating change. But no matter how much conviction you have that you’re headed in the right direction, the terrain will be unknown. This is the perfect time for exploration, experimentation, and discovery. Kathy and Terry will help you to live in this place of discovery, editing out what’s not working and taking steps toward a new, better reality.

The Journey

February 5 at 10AM PST/1PM EST

The challenges you encounter on your Journey will be the best problems you have ever had. Each setback will be an opportunity to find what will work in securing the new vision. The key here is making the shift from high-performing individual contributor to high-performing connector and developer of the people on your teams. Kathy and Terry will show you ways to foster connections with others as you create lasting positive change.

Your 21-Day Heroic Journey Leadership Challenge

February 5 – 26 (offline)

Over the next 21 days, your challenge will be to practice two simple 60-second Lead Positive strategies daily. These activities are meant to shore up your optimism and resilience and keep you proactive and confident throughout your entire heroic leadership journey.

The Supreme Ordeal and Victory

February 26 at 10AM PST/1PM EST

As a leader, you will face many dark moments. One will stand out as the darkest, and it will take your supreme resolve to shift away from the fear of failure toward a place of knowing that change can successfully be achieved. Kathy and Terry will show you how to face what is not working without going into a negative downward spiral. Even the gravest and most supreme of ordeals offer assets that can yield benefits if leaders have the determination and courage to face them head on.

The Return Home

March 18 at 10AM PST/1PM EST

Once you achieve your goals, your final challenge as a leader will be to pave the way for continued higher levels of performance. Kathy and Terry will help you find new ways to build on what has been achieved and extend the impact of what you’ve accomplished.
