Are you the leader you want to be?

If the answer is no (and be honest), you’re not alone. A lot of leaders struggle to get to where they want to be in their careers and their lives.


Unfortunately, many leaders struggle to engage their team. They’re so focused on the aspects of leading that they forget about who they’re leading.


Sound familiar? Maybe you’ve been leading a team for a while and you’re struggling to keep up with the demands. Or maybe you’re trying to grow your leadership, but you’re not sure what success really looks like.

So let me ask you: what’s holding you back from reaching your true leadership potential?

Fear of failure?


Fear of what others will think?


Fear that maybe you don’t have what it takes?

It doesn’t have to be this way…

There are resources that will help you transform your leadership and take your career to new heights.


Leadership success isn’t born out of comfort. It’s through challenge and hard work that you become a great leader. It happens by stepping outside of your comfort zone and pushing yourself (and your team) to try new things.


Success is a lifelong process and much of it relies on overcoming limiting beliefs and forming relationships with the people around you.


Easier said than done, right?

All of that is possible – and more

What if you could…


Snag that big promotion?


Lead a team with confidence?


Overcome fears that hold you back from moving up in your career?


Start your own business?


Be viewed as an expert in your organization?


Form relationships with people of influence?

I’ve been there.


I’ve struggled with becoming the leader I always KNEW I could be.


That’s why I’m thrilled to introduce my newest program, Developing the Leader Within You.


This six-week course will equip you with the skills and resources you need to lead from the heart, not the head.


You’ll learn how to push your team to new heights while adopting a new attitude – one that tackles challenges head on with confidence.

Enroll in the course and you get…

10 lessons covering topics that will help you become the leader you were always meant to be, including how to influence others on your team and higher-ups in your organization, how to protect your time so you can focus on the things that will bring results, how to embrace failure and get clear about your direction…and more

Access to all the recordings for life so you can go back and apply the teachings at any time

A robust workbook for notes so you can capture the insights and takeaways that will bring you success and recognition quickly

A private Facebook group with discussion to address any leadership issues or obstacles you’re working through so you can move forward with confidence.

PLUS you’ll get UNLIMITED ACCESS to the program. That means you can join a teaching or mastermind call anytime you feel stuck or need additional support on your journey

The program includes once-a-week teaching calls that cover each aspect of Developing the Leader Within You:

You’ll also get access to an exclusive mastermind group of other like-minded individuals who are working on their leadership skills too.  Through our Q&A sessions, you’ll hear others’ struggles and successes and learn from one another. Success isn’t achieved in a vacuum, right?


The best part: all of these calls are recorded so you can have access to the replays anytime, anywhere, without falling behind. You can go at your own pace and on your own schedule.

The investment for this program is just $67…

That’s less than $6 per hour for leadership development coaching.

How it works…

Teaching lessons:

The first lesson – Influence – and the notes for that lesson will be emailed to you immediately upon enrollment.

Then, one week later, and for each week after that, a new lesson and notes will be emailed to you until you’ve received all 10 lessons.


Access to all the recordings:

All of the lessons are downloadable so you may take them with you on any device.  You can revisit any lesson at any time.  


Private Facebook Group:

In in same email as your first lesson, you’ll receive a link to the private MEMBER-ONLY Facebook group with instructions to join.  I encourage you to use this group and your mastermind for the topics in the course. You get unlimited access to me to help you work through your leadership or personal growth obstacles.

I also encourage you to join our public group to join with other growth-minded leaders: Join the Maximum Potential Community


Unlimited access to the program:

In addition to your library of recordings, you can join a teaching or mastermind call anytime you feel stuck or need additional support on your journey. You can also post questions, challenges, or successes ANYTIME in the Closed Facebook Group ONLY for those in or previously in the program. Also, if we update lessons in the future, you get access to all the new material as well.

Still on the fence?

Here are three reasons why you need to invest in this program:

Your Mindset

Your mindset is half the battle. If you have a negative mindset, then your leadership will reflect that. The Developing the Leader Within You program will help you overcome a negative mindset and take a healthy approach to your career and personal life. Bottom line: leadership has less to do with position than it does with disposition.

Your Team

Great leaders recognize that it’s not all about them. It’s about their team. Unfortunately many leaders don’t equip their teams for success. The Developing the Leader Within You study will show you how to bring out the leadership potential in yourself and the people around you – and ways to relinquish control so you can accomplish more in your day.

Your Progress

Leadership doesn’t happen overnight – it’s a daily practice. This program will show you how to cultivate your leadership skills on a daily basis and how to find success in the daily grind.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long do I have access to the course?

You have lifetime and on-demand access to all recorded content. As new content and bonuses are added, you get it all. If the price goes up, you don’t pay any extra.

How much work is involved in this study?

I’d love to tell you that if you listen all the calls, take notes, and participate in the group, that your life will magically change for the better, requiring no work on your part, but that’s just not true.

The truth is, there is some work that you’ll have to do, but no more than you are already doing. The reason this program is so wonderful is because it teaches you the tools, strategies and mindset shifts that, if implemented, will make your leadership easier and more joyful.

You will have to commit a bit of time to listening, learning and then implementing, but remember that your growth is ultimately up to you. There are challenges in the lessons each week that you can build into your leadership practices, but no more than you are already doing.

And remember, because you have access to all the recordings forever, you can go as slowly or quickly as you like. If you listen and implement one lesson a week on the live calls, that’s great. If you skip some calls and go back later, that works too. It’s your leadership and your growth path to choose. Each step you take gets you closer to where you want to be. It’s an ongoing process.

Do I have to read the book?


The lessons in the study are a recap and expansion on the book. You can read along if you want to, but it’s not necessary.

Is a copy of the book included?


You can purchase a copy of the book from Amazon if you want, but you don’t have to. Everything you need for the study is included in your workbook.

What is your refund policy?

While I know that this program will develop you as a leader, I can’t totally guarantee that you are gonna LOVE the course, nor can I guarantee results, (because honestly the ball is in your court on that one). Every now and then it just isn’t the right fit. If that’s the case, email me, and we’ll talk.
