Where: Your office (wherever it is that day) 

Why: Keep reading . . .

Power is a confusing concept. You want it, right? (I do.)

Yet when you have it, you're often filled with exasperation. Annoyed and frustrated by and with the power you have. So many decisions end up in your Inbox. Didn't you hire the best people and tell them to get things done?  

Is the answer to keep power to yourself? And lord it over others?

Or, do you . . . give it away? 

Can you, as a leader, create power in your organization by giving it away?

I am thrilled to have Matthew Barzun, author of The Power of Giving Away Power, join the Awesome Leader community for a discussion on June 29 at 8 am PT/11 am ET/16:00 GMT.

Matthew and I worked together at CNET (we taught workshops together!), and I'm so excited and grateful he's sharing his insight and experience with us. Giving away the power, right?

It's an hour long. It's free. It's open to all. Register below.

About Leila Bulling Towne

Over the past 20 years, I’ve built a reputation as an executive coach with an uncanny ability to make soft skills tangible and to help leaders figure out what to say and how to say it.

In short? I make it easier to be the boss. 

Awesome Leader is my online training platform. Each lesson is only 15 minutes long yet immediately actionable. My manager program is where I want companies to start: train your managers now.

I've helped leaders on every continent except Antarctica (it's on my list). Awesome Leader takes the knowledge I've been sharing with founders and C-level folks for decades and brings it to you and your teams (no airfare required). 

With cohort training and coaching, you and your teams get to access the insights I've honed with leaders around the world. Learn more


Does your company have leaders who need to learn how to manage better—now?

We have the solution: it's the Awesome Manager program.
Lessons are under 15 minutes long, online and accessible all the time. Your managers learn how to set goals, give feedback, delegate, and manage those "sticky" performance challenges.  They learn together—in company-specific cohorts.
An executive coach hosts weekly calls with your leaders and answers their questions in a private community (no, thank you, Facebook). Managers learn fast and get help from leadership experts, their teams stay engaged, and employee engagement goes up. 
So, you know your managers need help. What are you waiting for? Let us walk you through the program. Schedule time with Leila or learn more.
