DON’T JUST PASSIVELY LEARN. ACTIVELY GET HELP FROM EXCELLENT LEADERS.

The Learning Leader Academy is designed to not only provide you with online training videos, but also gives you the opportunity to interact with an active community of leaders with growth-oriented mindsets.

The video lessons serve as a framework to stimulate discussion amongst our community of thoughtful and intentional leaders helping each other grow into the kind of leader that inspires others to follow.

What does this mean? Imagine you just watched one of our trainings on building a committed culture and prepared an action plan to use in your own workplace. You can then run the ideas by me and other leaders around the world for advice. Sometimes a little feedback is all it takes to rescue a plan or turn it from good to great, and it’s always a confidence boost to know when your ideas resonate with others.

Instead of simple, passive learning, this is an intentional, action-oriented program designed to provide you with ongoing resources that support your unique needs through every step of your journey to be a better leader.

Hi [Insert first name],

I’ve found an online Leadership Certification program called The Learning Leader Academy that provides training on how to build and sustain excellence as a leader. As you know, this is an important personal and professional goal for me, so I’m writing to request your reimbursement for this investment in my professional development.

Based on the content and reviews I’ve seen, I believe I’ll be able to bring back strategies and tactics that I can apply to our efforts to improve [add productivity, organizational learning, innovation, or other current goal here]. 

You can view the course curriculum, components, testimonials, and other details here: learningleader.com/academy

In addition to 30 lessons of video content, step-by-step walkthroughs, and a 50+ page playbook with an actionable plan, I also get to:

  • Learn from a select group of fellow participants, in a private discussion forum, who have also dedicated themselves to improving themselves as leaders.
  • Share all of my notes, resources, and knowledge gained with our company.
  • Gain practical knowledge on new leadership methods, management tools, strategies, and new ways of leading people.
  • Participate in quarterly group (Q & A) calls with the course creator, Ryan Hawk, host of iTunes top business podcast, The Learning Leader Show, and author of WELCOME TO MANAGEMENT. These calls will afford me the ability to learn from other practitioners and leaders in the Learning Leader community.

I think this course would especially help me on these projects:
– [add project or initiative]

– [add project or initiative]

This is a completely self-paced, online course I can do on my own time, which means it won’t require time off, airfare, or lodging expenses. The total cost, everything included, is only $_____.

I’ll be sure to submit a post-course report that will include an executive summary, major takeaways, and the most useful techniques from the course.

Thank you for considering this request. I’m happy to talk with you if you’d like any further information.
