Awesome Leaders aren't born. 
They are built. 

We help leaders learn what to do and when to do it so they can handle anything.

People can learn to be awesome leaders.

Nobody wakes up in the morning and says,

"I wanna be a crummy leader today!"

People WANT to be awesome at work.

There's just one problem.

Nobody's teaching them the soft skills that leaders desperately need to know.

Until now.

Leaders need to be warm, likable, and inspiring—without being a pushover or “too soft.”

They're pulled in 17 directions, things are falling through the cracks, and conversations are never as smooth as they want.

Everyone’s looking to leaders for the answers. What do they do when they don’t have all the answers?


There is a widespread myth that you’re either born with the qualities to be a great leader or you're not. 

Consider that myth officially busted. Awesome leadership can be learned.

And it can be learned in a fast, accessible, easy-to-apply process that puts theory to work immediately . . . without losing your managers in multi-day workshops.

That's why I created the Awesome Leader Online Program

A six-week intensive online course led by me, with everything your leaders need to feel confident and graceful in their role.

I’m Leila Bulling Towne, the creator of Awesome Leader.

I’ve coached executives for over 20 years, and my work has been featured in the Wall Street Journal,, Fast Company, Forbes, and beyond. 

I wanted a better way to teach the “soft skills” that are make-or-break. That’s why I created Awesome Leader.

Here, you’ll find fast answers to common leadership challenges—like how to resolve conflicts, motivate employees, set clear goals, give meaningful feedback, and more. 

Plus, I know everyone is busy. That’s why every lesson is just about 15 minutes long.
