Cohort-based Course

Most people think you either lead or manage. The truth is you need to do both. The first thing a good leader needs to manage, is themself!

Course overview

Your own organization is the case on which you apply MtL tools and methods.

MtL offers a unique learning experience for leaders in that your team is one of a cohort of teams and where YOUR CASE IS the Course in a flipped classroom.


You come away with real solutions to real problems and with initiatives you can implement immediately to improve your business.


Topic content, practice cases, role plays, and YOUR CASE applications are blended with real-time feedback from fellow students and instructors in ten two-hour weekly live sessions.


MtL Tools and Methods make doable actions driven by seven simple truths that are otherwise anything but easy.

Manage to Lead is for:

01

Leaders and their team with a change in mind to make to accomplish a mission, leave a legacy, or get promoted.

02

Organization, unit, & function leaders who seek to architect, build, govern, and change their organization to grow faster/perform better.

03

Startup Entrepenuers looking to go from Powerpoint to Profits.

MtL is a leadership and management system of integrated practical Tools and Methods to architect, build, govern, and change your business.

Master the Change Framework:

Your mandate is what you target to achieve by when. Think of it as the game you are playing. In MtL you learn how to always know:

  • Where things are now.
  • Why things must change.
  • How you want things to be.
  • How to get them there.
Discover disconnects and align your team:

While business leaders agree that alignment is key to success, research shows that <33% say their top team is fully aligned. MtL Tools and Methods, developed and honed by a team of successful CXO's, lead to clearity and alignment through collaboration.

Learn how to set up, assess, and mature key processes:

Determine which of five common operating models most closely matches that of your organization and draft a DO-SELL-GROW process map for the one that most constrains performance and growth.

Decide what to watch, and how, to know how well you are doing:

Determine what to watch, and how, to know how well you are doing compared to past, plan, and peers.

    • Executive Reviews

      Executive Reviews, like live session 10, are a structured way to provide rich input to leaders who seek to improve themselves, their team, and their organization.

      The process is rigorous and demanding and the results are worth the effort.

      The leader presents what they are working on, and how it is going, to the same reviewers every few months or so to help the leader get themselves and their team on track to increasing the odds of better results sooner.

    • Focus

      There is one more MtL truth that is not covered in the course, and that is that it is okay to do what you like and what you are good at. The bonus content in this module explains how!

    • Alliance by Design

      Most acquisitions and alliances severely underperform relative to expectations set at the time of their inception. No matter how great they look on paper, it is always a lot harder to make things come out anywhere near where they were meant to be than it seemed at the start.

      This bonus material will help you increase the odds of a successful merger, acquisition, or alliance.
