Thoughtfully Fit® Leadership: increase your impact

Build your leadership skills, one week at a time.

Strong leaders are essential for the success of any organization.


Leadership skills can be learned, but they require practice.

Do you have members of your team who are ready to take it to the next level? Or maybe some emerging leaders whose skills you want to build?

If you want to give people on your team the chance to build their practical skills, improve communication, and become more effective leaders, this is the perfect course.

In addition to monthly training sessions, we provide support and accountability to help you improve your skills.

Our Approach

Think about how you learned to ride a bike. Did you read a book? Watch a video? Maybe. But eventually you had to get on the bike and practice. You likely had a few falls along the way.

It’s the same with leadership skills. We can teach you the content, and then you have to practice. We provide the information and support to help you do just that.

Small Accountability Groups

You will be placed in a small accountability group in order to discuss progress on the skills you are learning and practicing.

Monthly Coaching Calls

You will have access to monthly coaching calls to explore case studies. If you’re feeling stuck, this is where you can get specific ideas to try.

Weekly Emails and Videos

You will receive an email each week that includes additional resources and a recap of the content you can be working on.

Listen to what past participants have to say!

“It was a hit! Employees enjoyed the experience which helped them increase emotional intelligence, improve workplace communication, raised self-awareness (and system/team awareness), as well as taught them how to deal with conflict in a healthy way. Many of the tools she teaches can be used immediately in the work setting!”

Content Overview

Module 1 - LEAD YOURSELF: Practice Pause–Think–Act

The series starts with an overview of Thoughtfully Fit and the core strategy of pausing for a moment, thinking about what’s going on, and then acting with intention. It builds self-leadership and emotional intelligence, and shows how to achieve greater results by focusing on your choices and what you control: your own thoughts and behaviors.

Module 2 - LEAD WITH COACHING: Stop Solving!

This session focuses on how to make conscious choices in order to increase your impact and effectiveness. Participants will learn how to use coaching skills such as listening thoughtfully, self-managing, and asking questions to improve their interactions with others while reducing their workload and stress.

Module 3 - LEAD WITH COURAGE: Conduct Balanced Conversations

Employees often avoid difficult conversations that could lead to greater results, or they approach conversations too aggressively and conflict ensues. This session focuses on achieving alignment and finding a “win-win” solution by building skills to convey a clear message in a way that it can be heard.

Module 4 - LEAD DURING CONFLICT: Accept Differences

This final session analyzes different leadership styles and explores ways to accept and embrace differences. Learn the impact of labels and assumptions and skills that can be immediately used to effectively resolve conflict in any situation.
