ConantLeadership Presents:

The BLUEPRINT Summer Coaching Series

Get unstuck, maximize your impact, change your leadership life

Doug Conant, experienced Fortune 500 CEO and NYT bestselling author of The Blueprint, is your exclusive guide in this entirely online leadership series. This companion course to The BLUEPRINT book offers unprecedented access, insight, and support for leaders on their Blueprint journey. Let Conant personally steward you through each of the 6 practical steps in the Blueprint process and mentor you through the creation of your personal leadership Foundation.

Each session offers four LIVE virtual classes running on consecutive Mondays throughout the month. All classes will be made available as recordings so you can access lessons on your own time.  Course materials required are a copy of The Blueprint and the FREE companion e-workbook.

Choose from Three Summer Sessions:
June |  8th, 15th, 22nd, 29th
July |  6th, 13th, 20th, 27th
August | 3rd, 10th, 17th, 24th

Each Session Includes 4 Live Virtual Classes | 7PM ET $200 

Enroll with a partner to enhance the impact of the Blueprint Coaching Summer Series. If you prefer, you can get great value out of the instruction, reading, and coursework as a solo pursuit. But you might find it helpful to enlist a partner on this journey: a colleague, friend, employee, or family member to read and go through the exercises and live instruction modules with you. Then, you can support each other and bounce ideas off one another as you work your way through the six steps.

Your Life Story is Your Leadership Story

Many of the problems leaders face today are rooted in compartmentalization. Leaders believe their work life and their “real” life are two different things, so they develop a siloed self-expression: a “work” identity and a “personal” identity. And they’re at odds. Managing this tension becomes yet another task in a crushing litany of expectations and pressures. It does not have to be this way. It’s time to try something else.

Many leadership books teach you to emulate somebody else’s leadership approach; this one empowers you to lead more like you. Leveraging groundbreaking insights from a 40-year leadership journey coupled with the most current science on habit-building, The Blueprint combines true-and-tested exercises for self-discovery with an experience-backed manifesto on the ten foundational tenets of “leadership that works” to create the quintessential treatise and manual on leadership for our times.
