UMO Leadership - The Program

The speed and complexity of the workplace today requires a leadership model focused on power and mastery. As leaders we have power.  The issue is how we use that power to drive growth. The world is moving too fast to keep power in your hands as a leader. That’s a sure path to being one step behind and eventually irrelevant.  Sharing power is better but we need more. The secret today is putting the power in their hands, and ensure they are mentally, physically, and emotionally ready to use that power to drive growth.

The second part of the leadership secret is the key – ensuring that they are mentally, physically, and emotionally ready to use that power to drive growth. Most leaders are content if people complete tasks and hit goals. Not UMO Leaders. UMO Leaders know how to meet people where they are and accelerate their journey to understand, master, and own their craft and work with others to think and act one step ahead.

The Secret Sauce


The secret sauce of UMO Leadership is helping people master transitions from one stage of growth to the next. Transitions are the zone between where you have been and where you need to go. Transitions can be awkward because the tendency in transitions is to go back to what has worked in the past instead of pressing forward to master the things that will create new growth. Help people master transitions from one stage of growth to the next and put you put the power in the hands of your people. That is a game changer.

At the core, UMO Leadership is about helping people become so good at what they do that they are free to see, anticipate, and respond - and in the process make the workplace more energizing and inspiring for everyone.

UMO Leadership is a System


UMO Leadership is a system designed to achieve a specific outcome. A system, by definition, is a regularly interacting or interdependent group of items forming a unified whole. So UMO Leadership is not just a concept or a set of tools designed to bolt onto your existing leadership model. It’s a different way of thinking about leadership and a different rhythm of action. It is a set of interdependent parts – organizational systems, learning models, coaching, team culture, and everything else. When they work in unison, they create exponential growth in process, people, and performance. Talent alone is not enough. It’s the system that turns talent into champions and at the core of the system is leadership.

The UMO Learning Model


The learning model is also different. Work is busy for everyone.  Hours away from work for classroom learning means staying late or working on weekends to catch up.  We created a different option.  After an initial kickoff session, participants receive 5 short videos a week – 3-5 minutes. Each video builds on the previous videos to create a progressive learning experience over 30 weeks.  Once a week or every two weeks, participants meet for a 60 minute live application workshop in person or via technology to practice what they have learned.

For organization wide implementation, we train organizational catalysts to lead these weekly live learning experiences.  You to schedule these at the times that best work for the people in your organization, and, it is the most cost effective. This simple daily drip and weekly application creates a new experience that accelerate the growth process.

John’s ability to hold up a mirror to my inner self is amazing. It’s as if he is able to form the questions I’ve been struggling with, but have been unable to put into words myself.
