Become a great leader, unlock employee potential & inspire a creative corporate culture by embracing a growth mindset

Whether you...

  • Run your own business
  • Have a management position
  • Are an executive in a Fortune 500 company
  • Aspire to lead in any of these ways 

...there are certain qualities and capabilities you need in order to succeed as a leader.

Every skill imaginable is available at your fingertips—all you have to do is download an app, enroll in an online course, read a book, or hire a coach. If everything you need to learn to be a great leader is out there, available to everyone, why, then are some leaders---and the organizations they run—so much more successful than others?

Would your answer be:

  • Because some leaders put more time and effort into learning the necessary skills
  • Because some leaders are just more naturally talented than others

Your answer to THIS question is the greatest predictor of your future success as a leadernot your degrees, experience, innate abilities, personality, current position or how many of the top qualities great leaders have that you already possess. 

Whether you believe your success as a leader depends on you being more talented than others or you believe your success as a leader depends on your willingness to learn and develop the needed skills—this distinction is what determines EVERYTHING.

In our society, and especially in the hierarchical structure in the corporate world, there is a prevailing belief that some people are simply smarter or more talented than others and that this difference is what accounts for a person’s success or failure. However, in industries like sports where natural talent is highly coveted, over and over again the athletes who initially showed lower levels of raw talent are the ones who come out on top. 

Let us tell you a little story...

In a famous example, Michael Jordan—the most revered basketball player of all times—was cut from his high school basketball team. Other players may have had more natural ability, but Michael surpassed them all. Why? Because he out-worked every single one of them. He developed his abilities, whereas the players who though they were already talented and didn’t have to try so hard, didn’t.

But it wasn’t the hours of extra time Michael put into practicing every day that allowed him to, literally, leap above his competitors. What enabled him to become the best in history was his belief system—his mindset—the belief that he was CAPABLE of improving his ability.

It’s not a person’s talent that makes them successful—it’s the belief that they can IMPROVE—and then the action they take to do so. 

What the most successful leaders have that others don’t is a GROWTH MINDSET. They believe that they will become the best leaders they can be through EFFORT, LEARNING, and GROWTH. They believe they, and everyone they work with, are capable of improving. Without this underlying belief, they will not put the time and effort into learning those needed skills because, well, why bother? You either have the talent and intelligence to be a leader or you don’t, right?

This course was created to help you identify the differences between a fixed mindset leader and a growth mindset leader so that you can become the latter.

This course will help you develop a growth mindset, starting with the good news that regardless of what you previously thought, the truth is that your talent and intelligence is not fixed—you can develop your abilities in any area.

Then, you can take what you learn and teach the growth mindset to your staff. And because you believe in the human potential to learn and grow you can coach employees to reach their potential. The result is that your employees will improve and your teams, projects, or department will thrive.

Lastly, you’ll learn how growth mindset organizations operate differently, why they outperform and outlast fixed mindset organizations, and how you can take make these changes in your organization. 

And, you’ll receive a proven blueprint for setting growth-oriented goals so that you can implement the exciting new strategies you learn for developing yourself as a leader and inspiring your staff and organization to embrace their potential.

Joeel & Natalie Rivera

Joeel and Natalie Rivera are professional speakers, trainers, and coaches. Their mission is to provide tools that empower people to ignite their dreams,  unleash their potential and fulfill their purpose. Through their  company, Transformation Services, Inc., they provide digital content  publishing, online courses, and life coach training programs that act as  a catalyst for personal empowerment. Joeel  is a former psychology professor with a Master’s Degree in Counseling  and Education and is currently completing his dissertation for his Ph.D.  in Psychology, with an emphasis on happiness. Using the science of  psychology and human potential, they train leading edge entrepreneurs,  leaders, life coaches, and individuals how to master the power of their  mind and create their destiny.They  are serial entrepreneurs who challenge and inspire others to take their  power back through self-employment as INDIEpreneurs, (self-employed  freedom junkies). Between the two of them, they’ve started over a dozen  businesses, from photography to a non-profit teen coaching center, and  from an import business to a holistic virtual office. They  became INFOpreneurs in 2014 when they fully transitioned their print  magazine into digital format because they found they could reach an  exponential, worldwide market at a fraction of the time and cost. They  closed their physical offices and began converting their in-person  workshops and speeches into information products and online courses. Then, in 2015 they received a proverbial “kick in the pants” to go  “all-in” when Joeel fell ill after traveling overseas. Unable to leave  the house, they continued reach and inspire their market by creating 50  online courses in only 2 years, including digitizing their popular life  coach training programs and certifications. Today, they have served 300,000+ students from 195 countries.
