Accelerate Your Leadership… and Take Your Team With You

Nothing Prepares You for the Challenges of Leadership

As leaders, we are constantly looking to deliver results and have an impact. We know we can’t do it alone and that our team is the route to success.

Yet many teams don’t deliver as effectively as we know they can. It’s frustrating and can make our work feel rushed. That’s wrong. You should be able to look after your people and deliver the quality of work that’s needed for long-term success.

At Institute Success, we understand how hard it is to be a leader. We know that no matter how high your own career rises, the challenges never fade.

For nearly 20 years, we’ve worked with thousands of leaders. We create simple tools that deliver immediate results and transform teams.

Become an Exceptional Leader Who Inspires Others’ Loyalty, Collaboration and Professional Best.

When leaders find themselves asking, “Why won’t they just do what I need them to do?” there is usually a simple answer.

The symptoms are clear. You find yourself frustrated because it’s so obvious to you what they need to do. Yet, for some reason, they don’t hear your message.

This leads to you finding yourself overwhelmed. There’s so much to be done, the temptation is to jump in and fix the problem. Yet there’s an endless stream of meetings and fire-fighting. No matter how many productivity hacks you’ve mastered… there’s not enough time.

The answer is to realize you’ve accidentally trained your team to be overly dependent on you. The more you help, the more they seem to need you.

The good news is it’s possible to resolve this and accelerate your team’s successes. As you allow your team to become less dependent on you, they’ll feel more empowered, and proud of what they create. The quality of the work they create will improve. They’ll hold each other accountable, and build greater levels of trust within the team. 

 We have one focus: to help you become an even more successful leader.

"It's a leadership accelerator..."

The Engaged Leader™ program is a leadership accelerator...

John Comly - CEO American Safety Council

One of the really unique benefits is on-boarding senior leaders, as it can be really challenging to integrate into an existing management team. 

It's enabled all of us to come together and work effectively together much faster than we would have otherwise. If you get it right, you're pouring kerosene on the fire, and you are accelerating the building of trust and as a result productivity explodes...

How Does Engaged Leader™ Accelerator Impact Your Leadership Development?

No matter how dedicated you are or how many hours you work, you have a finite number of hours in the day.

You can’t do it all yourself. Success can only be achieved through your team.

Engaged Leader Accelerator™ guides you on how to describe your vision of success so it becomes a truly shared vision of success, where your team buys-in and wants to succeed. You’ll discover how to engage and motivate individuals, and your team as a whole, so they work together to create growth.

The way you share your vision, communicate and motivate your team is the only sustainable and scalable route to success.

However, the main reasons most employees feel disengaged from their jobs are for exactly the same reasons.

They feel their bosses don't communicate well with them. They feel their work is not rewarding.

The Engaged Leader Accelerator™ program hands you tools to have a direct impact on not only these key areas but many others too. You’ll discover how to communicate clearly and effectively, even when having difficult conversations, so your team feels valued and understand their critical role.

What Makes the Engaged Leader™ Accelerator Different and Able To Deliver Results?

We teach the theory, then guide you to implement it in your daily life.

The main reason most leadership programs fail is that they don't follow up.

At the heart of the Engaged Leader Accelerator™ program is coaching, enabling you to rapidly grow as a leader, so you feel confident and inspire the best in others around you. You enhance your strengths and deal with your challenges as you are guided by an expert.

To have a real impact on your work and team, it's critical to work in a different manner. We'll act as your guide, helping you to implement your new tools quickly and efficiently.

What Other Leaders Are Saying...

The Engaged Leader program gave me the learning I wanted, the way I wanted it: smart, fast, interesting, engaging and quickly applicable. As an experienced leader, I couldn’t imagine what insights could be learned….and I learned A LOT. I now understand the value of connecting with people first before giving my “spiel”. I also became better at listening, empathizing and finding the words that built trust. As I grew and modeled new behaviors for my team, they in turn have become stronger leaders and even more effective at business development. Bottom line? GREAT investment.

Ira Bass


As a result of the Engaged Leader program, I now have an increased self-awareness of how people may perceive me versus how I want to be perceived. It taught me how to communicate even more positively with my team and co-workers by focusing on my words, tone and body language. It also impacted our leadership team as a whole. We now have better communication and handle issues in a more positive way that benefits everyone involved.

The Engaged Leader program works. We take every leader through this program and it’s had more impact on our leadership ability than any other program.  My entire team is more engaged and our culture has improved more than I ever thought possible.

To maximize your experience, you will have activities related to the classroom learning to complete between sessions. Typically the pre-work takes less than one hour and includes videos, articles, exercises and thought provoking questions.
