Lead Positive Leaders October 2020

10/21/2020 - 10/29/2020 8:00am – 12:00pm Virtual On-Line Event

Lead Positive® – The On-Line Version

People follow people, not just great ideas.

Leaders learn to soar
Imagine having unshakeable self-confidence, unwavering optimism and exceptional personal magnetism. Imagine leadership Olympics where you participate at the upper limit of your potential, proving yourself strong and courageous.

That’s what happens with Asset-Based Thinking®. In this leadership program, hosted by The Cramer Institute, leaders learn how to “think about thinking.” By shifting perception, they learn what’s positive and strong in themselves, in others and in every situation. It’s a game-changer, for individuals and organizations.

Leaders learn mastery
What if you were able to powerfully motivate others to embrace and even drive change? What if you knew how to create a highly engaged culture? Imagine making inspiring presentations — the kind people keep talking about. Or being more skillful at fostering top performing teams. Lead Positive can give you these skills and more.

Learning to soar and gaining mastery of leadership skills is what it takes to make positive change and push the boundaries of what’s next for you and your organization.

The Program

This program is now formatted as a four half-day action-learning workshop, conducted in a live on-line (Zoom) meeting room. It also includes a pre-session orientation conversation and a post-session strategy conversation.

Leadership Development 1-1 Sessions:

Five-seven customized 1-1 coaching sessions are highly recommended for participants, to help reinforce the applications of Lead Positive®. Talk with us about adding coaching onto your group program as part of your enrollment process.

Program Curriculum


Shifting perspective from the negative side of the ledger to the positive side creates a positive chain reaction. In Session 1 of this program, you will learn concrete strategies for focusing positive mental attention on:

  • What worked and what can be learned from the past
  • What is working, strong, and valuable in the present
  • What is possible and “ready to happen” in the future

Sessions 2 & 3: SHIFT WHAT YOU SAY

Connecting what you say to the positive evidence you see is the basis for inspiring high-impact communication.

In Session 2 of the program, you will learn how to craft a message with:

  • Substance – by framing a positive interpretation of “reality”
  • Sizzle – by using your voice and your stories to engage people’s emotions
  • Soul – by revealing who you are and why your message is important

In Session 3 of the program, you will learn how to deliver your high-impact message with power & presence.


Leaders build self-confidence and inspire allegiance by acting intentionally in key, defining moments. By identifying and assessing the behaviors that have helped you create success in the past, you become familiar with your own personal “do’s” for effective leadership. The more aware you are of what you do best, the more you can leverage those behaviors.

In Session 4 of the program, you will learn how to use the positive trajectory of what you see and say in order to:

  • Respond positively and intentionally to high-stress, high-alert situations
  • Be confident, curious and courageous in all that you do
  • Make key moments matter

Program Hours:

We understand that it is challenging for leaders to spend time away from the office (virtual or otherwise).
Therefore, we have structured the sessions for half-days, to allow for office hours each day, as well.

Session 1 – 8:00am – 12:00pm (all times are Central time zone)
Session 2 – 8:00am – 12:00pm
Session 3 – 8:00am – 12:00pm
Session 4 – 8:00am – 12:00pm

LIMITED SIZE. Leaders can choose from two workshop formats:

  1. Come together in an open enrollment format, with a group of 6 to 12 leaders from a variety of organizations. You will enjoy a rich, diverse learning experience as you interact with high-performing leaders facing different (and possibly some of the same!) organizational challenges.
  2. Gather 6 to 12 leaders from your own organization to learn together and work on the biggest challenges you face and that will propel your organization forward.
