Lead by Design is a three-day experiential training with skilled support to develop yourself as a leader, and create positive and lasting changes in your professional performance. This training includes tools, practices, exercises, and resources based on Crafted Leadership’s learning model, the Architecture of Inspiring Leaders. Post-training you'll have access to our private, virtual Lead by Design group and will become part of a leadership community to support your ongoing growth as a leader.

Is this course for me?

This course is for leaders, rising leaders, supervisors, or managers. Anyone who directs or guides others. Course expectations are an openness to learning and courage to stretch yourself. We will challenge you to take healthy responsibility, drop defensive behaviors, acknowledge feelings, and be authentic and transparent. This course will require active participation and a willingness to do guided inner work in service of your leadership.

What outcomes can I expect?

If you fully participate and take ownership of your learning, you can expect an increased sense of personal power; greater ease with conflicts, feedback, and feelings; improved communication skills; capability to reduce drama and increase candor and productivity; insights into your own emotional intelligence and strengths; and learn how to tap into those on your team.
