It's 100% worth the time and investment - It's easy to put to practice and allows you to implement a little at a time.
There were so many valuable and simple things that you shared that helped me change my mindset and realize that I could make an impact on myself and my team and ultimately come out of this tough time more resilient and ready to keep going.
I thoroughly enjoyed hearing how others in the program have applied Nils' strategies right away and seen results on the live Q&A calls.
It's very motivating and I'm confident I will be using these strategies over the next 10 years.
The guidance and structure of the content and resources, the real-life stories contained, how immediately applicable so much of it is but that it also forms a toolkit I know I'll reference for my career.
How you maintained structure in the delivery but it was so personable and participatory.
How from the very beginning you helped shift my perspective and how I felt by thinking about what positive changes this work would represent for me.
The program defined those things and gave me a structure to keep doing them. In that way, it was very validating.
There were also aspects of my leadership I knew I needed help with but didn't know how to tackle.
Again, now I have a structure to build my own plans on. Now I know how to talk about my work in an interview, to a new boss, an existing boss, a board.
I feel more confident as a VP as a result of working with Nils.
|How is this program different from Nils’ book, 30 Day Leadership Playbook?|
|What exactly does the B2B Leaders Academy include?|
What I have found after more than 10 years as a leadership coach is that focus is key to leadership success.
There are currently 15 modules (more are being created) in the B2B Leaders Academy. These 15 modules are spread across the 4 Pillars of Leadership - Leading Yourself, Leading Others, Leading With Communication, and Leading With Metrics.
Each module contains...
- Short 2-5 minute training videos which lay out a step-by-step leadership development plan to put everything in the module into action...
Everyone in the B2B Leaders Academy chooses one module to focus on every 30 days. This is how we ensure you will develop your leadership skills every single month.
The B2B Leaders Academy is comprised of a diverse group of leaders from around the world. We have members from small to medium to large companies spanning many different industries.
Leadership is the common thread that joins us together. Whether you are in a small company with a small leadership role or a large company with a large leadership role, the fundamentals of great leadership equally apply.
The community comes together in the following ways:
- Weekly leadership masterminds so you can get diverse perspectives from around the world...
- Monthly checkpoints to make sure everyone is making progress every single month...
- Leadership workshops on a specific topic chosen by the community...
- Guest experts join to share leadership advice in an intimate setting...
- We celebrate wins together every week!
Some elements of coaching naturally happen in the leadership masterminds. But, there is an option for those who want to get more personalized 1:1 coaching directly from Nils.
With the Premium license option, you get access to a private 1:1 coaching chat thread with Nils.
In this thread, you can ask a question at any time and Nils will always get back to you within one business day.
The fastest way to make consistent progress is to have a leadership coach available via text at any time. The Premium option allows for this level of personalized coaching to happen.
|What kinds of results have other people gotten with the B2B Leaders Academy?|

- Adam created a schedule to ensure he mastered his time and this has created all the space he needs to be creative, work strategically, and continue to get everything done!

|Does the B2B Leaders Academy include practical examples so I can see how it’s done?|
Every strategy in the program has been implemented by Nils, tested by his clients, and delivered results.
|I feel like I pretty much know Nils’ Leadership Framework already. Why should my leaders join the B2B Leaders Academy?|
Simply knowing the Framework will change your leadership. But if you want to transform it, you need to learn how to apply what you know.
That's what the B2B Leaders Academy will do for you. It's full of countless examples that bring the Framework to life. It will equip you and inspire you to apply the Framework to every aspect of your leadership.
Plus, when you connect with our worldwide community of leaders, you get to tap into their knowledge, experience, and expertise.
The people who see the most dramatic leadership success aren't necessarily the people who simply understand the theory. It's the people who know how to apply it.
At this point, It's like you've just gone and read a book that's all about sailing. You know all the knots to tie and gear to pack and pitfalls to avoid. Now you're ready for the fun part: applying what you've learned by actually getting out there to sail!
|How do I know if I’m doing leadership right? Will the B2B Leaders Academy help?|
This program demystifies leadership. You can trust you're doing it right. Why? Because you're simply following a framework that's proven to Lead Yourself, Lead Others, Lead With Communication, and Lead With Metrics.
If you can learn a strategy and integrate it into your day-to-day life, you can become an incredible leader.
And don't forget: both myself and the entire B2B Leaders Academy community will be there to support you every step of the way.
|What if my company won't reimburse me for the cost of the program?|
- Losing out on your next promotion because you didn't effectively market your leadership?
- Telling your team what to do because you have all the answers?
- Getting to the end of the day and knowing you were really busy but you're not 100% sure of what you actually got done?
- Feeling like you have to figure everything out for yourself when it comes to leadership?
- Suffering through yet another book club meeting next quarter?
- Wondering if next year will be the year you finally get recognized for your incredible value and get promoted?
|Do you offer invoicing options?|
|My leaders are so busy. As great as the B2B Leaders Academy sounds, I can't imagine them finding the time for this program right now. Any advice?|
How important is it to develop leadership skills? When it comes to leadership, it's not always urgent but it's always important.
Empower your leaders to take the time to invest in themselves. If you do, your leadership will change and improve the lives of everyone around you. Your team will work more efficiently.
Before long, every leader will easily save the time invested in the B2B Leaders Academy.
Plus, the training content is available 24/7 on any device, so they can learn during their commute, during their workout, or anywhere that's convenient.
The weekly leadership mastermind calls happen at the same time every week so they can choose the best time to attend based on their schedule.
|How will my leaders access the materials?|
The community comes together every week over Zoom calls. There are two call options to account for time zones.
The two calls happen on Wednesdays at 7 AM PT / 10 AM ET and 4 PM PT / 7 PM ET.
Members can choose which call to come to based on your schedule and you are welcome to come to either each week.
The coaching happens in the weekly calls and those who have a Premium license will get access to a private 1:1 coaching chat thread with Nils that is available inside the B2B Leaders Academy.
They can contact Nils at any time and he will always get back to them within 1 business day.
|How much time should I expect my leaders to spend in the program?|
Most leadership training starts by taking leaders away from their job for a 1-3-5 day seminar where they teach you a ton and then expect you to remember everything when you get back to your work.
Nils' LTI System begins with the premise that your leaders are already busy doing their job.
This design enables everything to be integrated into their life. Here's what I mean by that...
There is time that they will spend watching the 2-5 minute training videos and going through the associated exercises for the area they are focusing on for the month.
Then, they will integrate the tools into their daily life. Since they are already busy having 1:1's, conversations with their boss, giving presentations, etc. they will be able to integrate the tools I teach into all of these activities.
Every Wednesday they have the option to join one of two leadership mastermind calls where they can get a diverse set of perspectives on their biggest leadership challenges and the topics most important to them.
When they integrate the tools taught in this program into their daily life, you'll get immediate results.
|How long do my leaders have to access the materials?|
|I have Managers and Directors reporting to me, will this program work for them?|
|Some of my leaders have been a manager for X years, will this program work for them?|
If you don't think they can improve and believe that they know everything they need to know when it comes to leadership, this program is 100% not for them.
Nils has coached leaders at all levels from individual contributors all the way up to C-level executives and after 10 years, it's clear that no leader is perfect.
|I have new managers, will this program work for them?|
What they get out of the program will be a direct reflection of what you put into the program.
|I have people who are not a manager yet, is this program still for them?|
|I’m a VP, will this program work for me?|
|Is this a 1:1 or a group-based program?|
|What if my leaders can’t make it to one of the weekly calls, are they recorded?|
We do not record the leadership mastermind calls so that they remain a safe place for everyone to discuss any leadership topic.
|What if I have a question you haven't covered yet? Or questions about these questions?|
