 Step by Step Team Success

WhoProof Course

Matt Leedham, Chief Achievement Officer at Velocity

As an entrepreneur or business leader, you may have already discovered that work-life balance is a myth.  When you are so closely tied to the business through ownership and responsibility, it is quite common for personal challenges to affect your business, and for business challenges to affect your personal life. 

Wouldn’t it be great if you were free to be your best self both at work and at home?  Imagine if you didn’t have to put on a different hat.  Picture the day where you can live your strengths both at home and at work, relieve stress, and increase productivity.  It’s possible through a multi-faceted approach. 

At Velocity, we work with business leaders to effectively plan for business growth, while also growing personally.  Through a combination of leadership coaching and strategic planning, you can enjoy the fast-paced roller coaster ride of being a leader.  Here are some ways to engage with Velocity:

 The UNITE and GO Course

How was work today?  Being in charge is what you love, but does your team lack that essential  “Yes Mentality.” 

Did you walk into the building already tired from thinking of all the impending deadlines? Team Pic for Unite and GoHow many emails and voicemails do you have to return? How many meetings are you sitting in on today?  How many employees are complaining to you or behind your back?

And how has all of this affected your your passion for success?  How can you regain the pleasure in your job, inspire your team, all without forgoing any semblance of a personal life?

It is possible to achieve great things without sacrificing your happiness.

At Velocity we make it happen one organization at a time.

The Ten Modules

  • Nexus of Communication
    • Walk away from your caveman instincts and instead think your way out of stress. Defuse anger, get the facts without judgment, and learn to leave assumptions behind. (1 Module)
  • Intentional Positivity
    • Happiness is not an accident.  Be intentional about how you approach daily activities and build, instead of drain, your emotional bank account. (2 Modules)
  • Triggers and Traumas
    • Find out what is really pushing your buttons and do something about it.  Learn how to thrive even in the face of challenges and setbacks.  (2 Modules)
  • Evaluating Relationships
    • Surrounding yourself with a dream team allows you to increase your chances of success.  Learn when to create boundaries, reframe relationships, accept personality differences and when to leave. (1 Module)
  • Goal Optimization
    • Achieving goals begins with having a well thought out vision of success.  Chunk your vision into small  steps, stay flexible as you go, and bounce back from setbacks to achieve success. (2 Modules)
