Online Leadership Training Program
30-Minute Modules Teach Practical How-to Skills
The Leadership Journey™ is a customizable and scalable online leadership training program for team leaders, supervisors, and managers that offers:
- A series of short, 30-minute courses teaching practical how-to leadership skills.
- Exposure to key concepts over time, rather than in one consolidated session.
- The creation of personal action plans and follow-up to ensure accountability and skills application.
The Leadership Journey takes participants beyond a one-time training event to offer a series of 30-minute modules focused on developing 10 core leadership skills.
In addition, given that many employees in supervisory or management roles were promoted to those roles because of their skills as individual contributors and not because of their expertise or experience in leading others, many organizations are facing a critical skills gap.
Online leadership training can be the perfect solution for both situations.

“The interactive features—I’ve never seen anything like The Leadership Journey. The competencies hit exactly what we wanted to reinforce, develop, and teach.”

Online Leadership Training Is Quick and Convenient
The Leadership Journey offers big benefits for both trainees and their organizations.
Because of the abbreviated format of the short modules, employees spend limited time away from their jobs with minimal impact on productivity and business operations.
The online format offers flexibility for today’s remote and hybrid workers—sessions can be done from anywhere, anytime. This is also beneficial in organizations where employees are working multiple shifts which makes it difficult to bring everyone together for a group training session.
This online training is flexible and self-paced, offering participants maximum autonomy to learn when it’s most convenient for them. Online courses can be delivered using our learning management system (LMS) or yours.
It’s easy to get started and easy to assign modules to employees—no matter how many leaders may need to be trained simultaneously.
“The Leadership Journey is a strong, solid program that basically runs itself. Our leaders improved teamwork, communication, and are more efficient.”
Todd Weber, Executive Vice President of Tire Sales Operations, Bauer Built, Inc. (View their case study.)

“100% of participants would recommend the program to other First United supervisors and managers, so they are finding great value in this learning experience.”
Ricca Paris, Assistant Vice President, Organizational Development, First United Bank (View their case study.)
Participants Learn and Apply Practical Skills to Workplace Challenges
After most online leadership training courses, 90% of participants walk away from the course and never apply what they learned. That doesn’t happen with The Leadership Journey.
The Leadership Journey uses a proprietary burst learning model with a focus on practical application. Leaders learn relevant how-to skills they can immediately apply in the workplace and are held accountable for doing so.
Rather than overwhelm participants with too much information, The Leadership Journey offers bite-sized modules that are spaced out over time. This gives leaders the time to develop and apply each new skill set before learning the next.
Built around adult learning principles, The Leadership Journey uses five simple but extremely powerful steps:
Step 1 – Learn
Managers learn practical how-to skills from short courses that get right to the point. Each skill is explained step by step, making them easy to understand. Content is specific, timely, and appropriate for supervisors and managers.
Step 2 – Internalize
Participants associate skills with their own workplace situations. Through a series of open-ended questions, leaders learn how their new skills can be used on the job with their teams.
Step 3 – Apply
The immediate application of new skills learned is what sets The Leadership Journey apart from other online leadership training programs. Leaders create personal action plans that make it easy for them to apply their new skills to their workplace challenges.
Step 4 – Follow-up
Follow-up tools hold participants accountable for applying their action plans on the job. Follow-up can take place online or in person through one-on-one meetings with the manager’s leader, training buddy, or mentor.
Step 5 – Repeat
This powerful process is repeated every two to four weeks for each of the core leadership skills. The time between courses gives managers an opportunity to apply their new skills. A turnkey roadmap drives repeatable and predictable results that lead to cycles of continuous improvement.
“Too many times employees attend training and are hit with a fire hose of information. They are so overwhelmed that no real change is realized. The Leadership Journey is one subject at a time, so our leaders have time to apply what is learned. Follow-up reinforces new skills.”
Barry Crandall, Human Resources Manager, Richland Industries
