C-Suite Training

LEAD YOUR TEAM TO SUSTAINABLE SUCCESS

What would it be like if …

You had a vision that captured the minds and imaginations of your entire team?

When you spend the time to get your vision and values right and then align yourself and your people with that level of clarity, you become unstoppable.

That’s why I created this IDEA Framework — to help intrapreneurs and entrepreneurs like you create sustainable success.

INVENTORY
DESTINATION
EXPLICIT FOCUS
ACTION
I: Inventory

TAKE A SNAPSHOT OF YOUR BUSINESS & ITS LEADERS

The “inventory” stage is where we take stock of where your business and its leaders are right now. We use simple methods to quickly get to an understanding of how you’re performing in the areas of your business that matter most.

D: Destination

CREATE A SUSTAINABLE VISION FOR YOUR COMPANY

Vision means “to see clearly in the present.” It’s not some far-off aspiration that you have to strive and struggle toward. It’s your current potential, which is unlimited. As soon as you have clarity on this, your mind is already at work finding ways to get you there.

E: Explicit Focus

FOCUS YOUR ENERGY FOR RESULTS

In today’s 24/7, never-unplugged culture, staying centered in your vision can feel like a full-contact sport – bruises and all. But it doesn’t have to be that way. This phase of our work will help you and your team remain explicit, aware and engaged so that you can hone in on your highest impact, highest gain priorities.

A: Action

HARNESS THE POWER OF COMPOUND INTEREST

Discover the power of what Einstein called the 8th wonder of the world — compound interest. Every moment you re-center, refocus, recommit to your vision and take action, you are gaining momentum, a force that can carry you further than you ever imagined.

I’ve seen how powerful this IDEA can be.

WHAT leaders ARE SAYING:

“Cortney has tremendous energy and possesses an incredible ability to get people to engage and understand the very complex. She is an excellent public speaker and has great language skills. She is well organized and carries with her an aura of optimism that’s hard to beat.”

PATRIK FRISK

President and Chief Operating Officer, Under Armour

“Cortney has a way of distilling down complex ideas to their core concepts, expressing her thoughts with clarity and focus. Whether in a small group or when talking to a larger audience, Cortney is fully present and great at finding ways to frame ideas in positive light, captivating and motivating her audience about otherwise gloomy subjects. Awesome communicator!”

ALBERT SAFSTROM

Head of Communications, 3Kronor Communications

“Cortney is able to “translate” ideas, methods, and concepts better than anyone I know. While retaining the essence she is able to make the same ideas, concepts etc. relevant and make sense across the board, to various users, ages, and industries. Her capacity, commitment to mastery and breadth and depth of knowledge is immeasurable. And yet she still maintains a beginners mind and always shows up with genuine, heartfelt presence.”

LAUREN ZAHRINGER

Founder and Owner, The Radically Good

“Cortney is the best communicator I have ever met: she always has fantastic ideas and the most suitable approach to complex situations. What I find even more valuable is that she always has the right words to empower her audience, giving valuable advice on how to tackle problems in life and business.”

1-on-1 Strategic Intensive

UNLOCK THE CONFIDENCE TO LEAD WITH INTUITION

This 1-on-1 intensive is designed to zero in on YOU.

Does any of this sound familiar?

  • You’re not sure what you want.

  • You feel run down and burned out with very little to show for it.

  • You’re chasing goal after goal and not feeling very fulfilled.

  • You wish you could make more of an impact with your work.

If you feel… disconnected from your work, overwhelmed and overloaded, or just plain confused, I encourage you to take this timeout for yourself so that you can start feeling what you want to feel.

This 1-day session will give you the tools you need to:

  • Get clear on what you want and focused enough to get it

  • Own your time, priorities, and peace of mind

  • Drown out the noise so you can lead with clarity and focus

Here’s an idea of how the day will flow:

9:30am

Meet at my favorite coffee shop where we’ll review your welcome packet.

10:15am

Foundations work (partly outside, weather permitting).

12:15pm

Lunch time!
We’ll take a real Italian timeout for a delicious meal and the space to let all that foundational work settle.

1:45pm

Deep dive! We’ll head to a private space I booked just for us to dive into strategy. Full-on focus, no distractions.

4:45pm

With your mapped out strategy, we’ll head to a local wine or juice bar to toast to the amazing day and wrap up our time together.

LOCATION:

The next set of Strategic Intensives will be in San Francisco; please sign up here to stay informed about future locations.

NOT LOOKING TO TRAVEL?
