Is Your Team Not Going the Extra Mile?
Learn How To Build Collaboration, Engagement And Increase Performance Through Democratic Leadership

Collaboration Issues? Lack of Team Engagement? Not Enough Performance?

I have had many leadership roles during my career, ranging from project manager and department manager, to EVP Sales and CEO. I always found it difficult to get the team to go the extra mile, and to work for a bigger purpose than just putting in their hours and get their wages. When I was promoted, I often found myself leading a team with plenty of problems. Team members often:

  • Focused more on their individual achievement than the overall performance of the team
  • Accepted mediocre performance: always finding excuses, such as market changes, the economy
  • Lacked creativity: never questioning their own way of working
  • Failed to collaborate: not seeing the needs of others' or unwilling to help
  • Went for suboptimized results: failing to see the big picture and overall purpose
  • Either dominated the meetings completely, or hardly ever spoke

This lack of team spirit and accountability often required my personal intervention to resolve conflicts or to get things moving. People spoke through me as their boss, rather than directly to eachother. Not only was performance failing, but I found myself overworked, since every little thing required my personal attention in order to keep moving.

These problems kept myself, the team, and the organization from succeeding. I was frustrated, annoyed, and upset, feeling I had been put in an impossible situation. But over the years, I learned how to deal with this, reshape and refocus the team, and get us all moving in the same direction.

At one point, I was the CEO of a company with more than 1000 employees, which was struggling with quality, dropping customer satisfaction, employee turnover, and literally zero innovation. I used all my skills and knowledge as a leader, and we managed to turnaround this international company, more than doubling the profit to more than $30 million within three years. As I was going through this tough time of transforming an entire company, my theoretical knowledge in leadership was also growing. I understood that my own recipe of success, was very much a good implementation of democratic leadership..

Frequently Asked Questions

When and How Can I Access the Course?

Once you have paid for the course, you will immediately be forwarded to a landing page that contains a login link to the course, which is hosted by Coachannel.

In a nutshell: you get access to the course immediately upon payment.

What is the Format of this Course?

The course is in video format with Carl Lindberg narrating, and information packed slides to further strengthen the information Carl teaches you. Given the nature of the course, you can easily listen to the course and understand and learn the contents without seeing the video. This enables you to learn by listening as you commute, fold laundry or other suitable activities in your most likely already packed agenda.

How Long Does it Take to Complete the Course?

The course consist of roughly 2 hours and 45 minutes of video and audio material. However, it is important that you try the steps in real life, hence, I would recommend you to go through blocks one to six during the first week or two, to understand the concept, aspects and elements of democratic leadership. As you get to block 7: From Theory to Practice, I recommend you move forward at slower pace with one or two steps per week. This is to enable you to truly try the techniques in your life, observe others and how they behave, and understand the potential impact of using the techniques you have learnt. If you go too fast, there is a risk that your knowledge stays theoretical and that you do not fully transform into a new type of leader. The democratic leadership plan template is there to help you build your own schedule with concrete steps and actions to transform yourself. Depending on you and your needs, the course might take shorter or longer time to complete.
If you use this approach, you would spend about six to ten weeks with the course, and really emerge into the content and developing new practical skills that will stay with you for the future. That said, you can complete the course in less than three hours, but that means you are less likely to develop yourself.

What if I am Disappointed with the Course?

Although I am confident that you will enjoy the course and learn some great leadership skills from it, I understand if you are concerned before purchasing. You have sixt days money back guarantee and can contact Digistore24 for a refund within that time, so no need to worry.
