Learning Journeys

with Scott Patchin

Supporting Your Journey toward People-Centered Leadership

Leadership is hard. Sometimes it feels like we're just making it up as we go along.

If you find yourself needing extra support, I invite you to take part in one of my learning journey experiences. These are all designed to help support you in developing people-centered leadership and an honest culture.

Each one is tailored to support a different leadership need and is all accessed remotely. You'll gain access to templates and 'how other people do things'. And it's all completely free.

Choose from the following Learning Journeys**:

Me Time for Leaders

Also known as 50 Hours that will transform your leadership effectiveness, this journey will help you launch your practice of Me Time - taking 1 hour every week to rebuild your confidence, recharge, and get refocused for the week ahead.

  • Best for: executive leaders
  • 8-week journey

People-Centered 101

How well do you really know your people? Are you actually operating as a team, or are you just a group of people? In this journey, I will give you tools and techniques to create a healthy, cohesive team – who actually like working together.

  • Best for: team leaders
  • 6-week journey

Onboarding Well

The cost of onboarding and having someone leave is $7-10K., and it's 5-10 times that amount if the person is leading others. In this journey, I give you tools to do the critical things that will make sure this new person turns out to be a great hire. 

  • Best for: hiring leaders
  • 8-week journey

All come with weekly reminders and a free coaching session from me 

part way through the process.

“If you want to go FAST, go alone.

If you want to go FAR, go together.”

- An African proverb -

I have a passion for working with leaders to maximize growth and minimize needless pain, moving to and past the tipping point of success. I would love to help you have a healthier journey to success.

To your journey, I bring a balance of academic knowledge, experience of working with hundreds of leaders, and the personal experience of leading through key business transition situations, with a passion for people-centered leadership. I have been in your shoes and personally experienced the challenges you face.

I hope you find these learning journeys useful and, as always, welcome you to contact me with questions or thoughts.

Lead well!
