Management Isn’t Enough. To Get GREAT Results, You Must Lead.


The current workplace poses an ever-growing number of challenges: there’s more to be done with fewer people to get it all done; employees are changing jobs sooner and there’s more turnover; the pace is hectic and everyone is frazzled.

Just about every leader that we coach, train or speak with has too much to do and too little time to get it all done. Yet this is the real world that you must operate in, and as the leader, it’s still your job to deliver results in spite of it.

And while all of this is true, it doesn’t have to be your reality. To make the shift to even better results, you must do more than manage your team.

The From Manager to Remarkable Leader Workshop is based on a proven leadership model to help you lead beyond management and through others. Through our Three-O Leadership Model – Others, Outcomes, Ourselves – you will learn how to make a positive impact in the world by serving others first and foremost.

Chances are you have been in your management role for a long time, and while you certainly have learned a lot and do many things well, you also know, deep down, you could be better. You experience uncertainty and frustration. You experience situations that you get through, but you are sure you could have handled them better.

If your only goal is to survive in your role, this workshop probably isn’t for you. If, however, you want to get better, you want to improve, you need to get better results, this workshop can help you.
We’ll focus on what it means to lead, not just manage. In Kevin’s vast experience working with people from front line leaders to the C-suite, he has seen that the mental and actual transition from thinking like a manager to thinking like a leader can be the biggest lever to improve job satisfaction (for everyone) and results.

In this workshop, we will focus on some areas you would expect, like communication, coaching, and change management. But in each case, we will go deeper and discuss things you might not have considered before – and even share secrets that are different than what you might expect or have seen before.

Yet beyond these important skill areas, we will explore trust and influence – and how those factors can also increase team effectiveness, organizational culture and innovation. This is just tip of the big leadership iceberg we will expose and dissect for your success.

Everything that we learn together is built around timeless and proven leadership principles that you can take back and implement in your own organization to immediately impact your results and your success. You will get the opportunity to work in a group, exploring potential leadership situations and working to develop solutions for each. And at the end of the workshop, we’ll conclude with a purposeful session where you’ll create a personal, practical and do-able action plan that will put your new skills into action with practical first steps and next steps.

This workshop is designed to help you as an experienced manager, whatever your level, to build the skills and deepen your understanding of these principles for greater results.

Format of the Workshop

“From Manager to Remarkable Leader” is not a one-way lecture. We don’t like passive teaching and no one learns in this setting. The workshop is a two-day, interactive and fun learning experience led by best-selling author and world renowned leadership expert, Kevin Eikenberry. You will get the chance to practice and gain confidence in the new skills you learn with your other classmates and with Kevin. You’ll have the opportunity to discuss your unique situations and challenges, and together you’ll build processes that you can use and apply back in the real world when you return from the event.

But how can I apply what I learn in the course back at my organization?

This is one of the biggest concerns we get about training. We understand that one workshop isn’t your single ticket to management excellence, and we don’t expect you to go back after two days and get it all right, all of the time.

And for that very reason, we’ve built a workshop that is supported by processes you can use and apply back in the real world, including two, live group coaching sessions after you return from the workshop.

While we will give you plenty of opportunities in class to ask questions and talk about your unique situations and challenges, that still isn’t the same as back in your workplace.

With the group coaching sessions, you will get additional access to Kevin for one full hour per session to help you continue to master the strategies and techniques you learn in the workshop.

With group coaching, you’ll get…

  1. Answers to your most pressing questions.
  2. Advice on your stickiest situations.
  3. Advice on implementing your ideas and plans more successfully.
  4. An opportunity to share successes.
  5. Confirmation that what you are planning to try will work.
  6. Valuable learning opportunities from the questions & challenges of others in the group.

With “From Manager to Remarkable Leader”, you will return to your workplace with the confidence and skills that you need to be a masterful and successful leader.
