You can take this video course online at your own pace (about 10-12 hours of video in total) and even watch on your mobile phone. All sessions are supported by downloadable slides and videos which you can access anytime.

You will be also able to download and use all the interviews with world leaders like Alan Mulally (CEO of Ford), Jim Yong Kim (12th President of the World Bank), Hubert Joly (CEO of Best Buy). Additionally you can use the slides I’ve created and used in my presentations when you’re training high level executives.

And when it’s all said and done, you’ll be certified as an SCL Trainer.

Frankly, I recently realized I’m not superman. Nor do I have the capability to run around the globe working with world leaders like I used to.

I know I won’t be able to do this forever, but this mission is so much bigger than me. I want to pass down the torch and give you an opportunity as a high level trainer and speaker to walk in my footsteps.

If you’re just as passionate about training high level executives into becoming the best leaders they can be, then register below now.

What’s The Difference With Coaching?

Coaching is working with leaders one-on-one. This is NOT what this program is about.
This SCL Trainer program is rather about teaching you all the tools and proven secrets you need to be able to train GROUPS of leaders, or speak at (online) conferences/seminars for a GROUP of executives.

So if you would like to speak for groups of executives/leaders, then you’re here at the right place!
