Course Information

Who is this for?

This course is for YOU! Managers, leaders, supervisors, teachers, mentors, facilitators – anyone looking to get results from individuals and teams will find this course immediately useful, valuable and rewarding. If you are constantly working to inspire, direct and support teams, the course will give you uniquely holistic, relevant and attainable structures and processes to help you build a productive team. Read more below or check out the short sample video that introduces the Framework for Availability, a key aspect of the class.

How long will it take?
Even though the class has a ‘start date’ you can participate on your own schedule and pace. The class is ‘in-session’ for 6 weeks, but you have access to the classroom and the material for as long as you would like. We suggest you plan on devoting a minimum of 10 – 15 hours to the course. The only scheduled aspects of the class are the Group Discussions that generally happen on a Wednesday or Thursday. We will host one or two depending on the number of people enrolled and what time zones are represented. All the calls are recorded if you are not able to attend in real-time.

Tell me more…

We will approach the learning from a few unique angles! Rather than providing you with platform or public speaking skills, this course will take you a couple levels down and guide you in creating relationship-centric environments that generate increased levels of participation, learning and collaboration in virtually any setting. We help you give people an experience of being their best self and train you in using this to improve engagement. You will have several opportunities to try out what you are learning as we ask you to practice specific skills and understandings in your own life and experience the impact first hand.

The end result

MUCH LESS apathy, drama, miss-communication, distance and low participation

Professionally AND Personally

All BoldLeaders courses are designed with the whole YOU in mind. Our work will be immediately useful in the workplace for sure, yet these are human-centered practices that work in any environment. We know they will be helpful to you personally throughout your life with friends, family, partners and more.


An end of the course assessment is available for everyone who would like to receive a certificate of completion from BoldLeaders. We are working on developing the course for Continuing Education Credit and will apply that as it becomes available.

I am really looking forward to working with you! My goal is to help you increase participation, learning and collaboration in any setting people come together: classrooms, boardrooms, the workplace, community groups and more. Together we will use profoundly simple yet uniquely effectively processes and structures that will naturally help people be their best selves and elevate human performance.
