Real-world leadership is very different from all that the media would have us believe. Forget the dashing swash-buckler, effective leadership is typically understated. It’s the myriad small things that make the big things possible.

In DO/LEAD, bestselling author and founder of Predictable Success Les McKeown demolishes the myths that have paralysed leadership in our modern era, then provides new tools for the job.

Setting Your 90-Day Goals for Predictable Success and Leadership

When setting personal and professional goals for your leadership and your output, it’s critical to ask yourself WHAT goals are worth pursuing, WHY they matter, and WHICH roadblocks will prevent you from achieving Predictable Success. 

Connecting Actions to Goals

In this module, we move from goal-setting to action-setting, and setting a roadmap for success as we move through Q2. The way to decide whether something is important or not, is to understand the degree to which it helps you achieve your OMG. Not what ‘OMG’ usually stands for in text messages etc., but your Overarching Medium-Term GoalWe also review the best ways to ensure that the daily non-trivial actions align with the OMG.

Connecting Actions to Goals With The Eisenhower Matrix

How can you take action if you don’t know where all of that hard work is leading? A powerful decision-making matrix, often called the Eisenhower Matrix, empowers you to focus on what’s important (not merely urgent), and to lay out the action steps for completing the tasks that truly require your time and energy.

Your Personal Improvement Index

In this module, we continue to explore the topic of leadership – but on a much more granular level, how you can improve your personal leadership skills, and lean into what your Visionary, Operator, Processor or Synergist style teaches you.

Real-world leadership is much more mundane than our cultural narrative would have you believe. It’s typically understated, and it takes place every day. You need the proper mindset, a basic skill set, techniques for dealing with the failures which inevitably arise and guidance on how to get started.


Anyone Can Lead. Yes, You!

Are leaders born, made, or something else? What are the most important and effective strategies for personal and professional growth — and is there a way to determine your unique strengths and weaknesses and lean *into* your leadership style for more predictable, sustainable success?

Comfort and Discomfort Zones in Leadership

There’s a saying – “the only way out is through.” And it applies to leadership, too. To get to where you want to go, you will have to challenge yourself: your beliefs about your strengths (and weaknesses), your highest value as a leader, what people think about you, and what is holding you back – or will hold you back – from the growth you’re pursuing.

What is Leadership and Where Does it Show Up?

“What is leadership and where does it show up?” This 30-minute presentation tackles the idea of heroic leadership, reveals opportunities for each one of us to show up in small ways every day (for big impact) and works to define the true meaning of leadership in a modern era.

Are You a Leadership Rule-Breaker?

Are You a Leadership Rule-Breaker? Anyone can lead. Yes, anyone (so that includes you, friend!). But the pursuit of leadership takes strength, conviction, belief in our own abilities and a passion for aligning our actions to goals. We can only control what we can control and today — like every other day — the most critical piece of the journey is showing up and doing the hard work. Trust the process, but don’t miss opportunities to lead and grow.

The Mythology of Heroic Leadership and the Role of Leadership Styles in Personal Growth and Development

Leadership is any act that gets two or more people closer to their common goals. It doesn’t always have to be heroic, despite what we’ve been told. So, what does this actually look like in day-to-day actions, and how does understanding our leadership styles and styles mix empower us to pursue our goals more successfully? In this training, Predictable Success founder Les McKeown and Predictable Success Community Manager Katy Widrick discuss these topics and more!
