Resources (FREE STUFF!)
The work of a coach is to accelerate a person’s or team’s growth and to help them get better at those things they identify as development goals. In other words, we strive to make work and life a little easier.
Here are some resources we’ve developed that leaders and teams use to go beyond usual and ordinary in their work.
These micro-learning experiences provide an overview and instruction to help leaders and teams navigate change and transition, create alignment, build capacity, and coordinate action. Each learning experience is 10-15 minutes in length and includes fillable PDFs for download.
Navigating the Change Journey
Organizational change is not a bug in the system; it’s a feature. Things change all the time. This learning experience provides an understanding of the psychological process we go through in response to change and tips for how we can successfully navigate the change journey and help others do the same.
Creating Alignment with Team Roadmaps
Team Roadmaps are an important part of a leadership and team management system that creates alignment, builds capacity, and coordinates action. This learning experience will give you an introduction on how to use Team Roadmaps to create alignment with your team.

The Tactical Action Plan is a tool that allows an individual to shape their work, focusing their time and energy on the most important actions to take in short-term window of 30, 60, or 90 days. This learning experience provides an introduction on how you can use a Tactical Action Plan yourself and how you can coach a team member to create one as well.

Are you ready to lead?
Ultra (beyond usual and ordinary) leadership is the willingness to push toward new horizons. Combine that desire in a leader with the skills to get people to engage and contribute their best, and opportunities abound. Leadership of this type is an heroic act in that it represents a life-long undertaking of a daily experience of pushing past our own limits and the limits presented by the systems in which we work. Every manager has an opportunity to exhibit ultra leadership. Many do not take that opportunity. Author Joseph Campbell wrote, “The heroʼs journey is one of the universal patterns through which that radiance shows brightly.”
