Soon you could be saying things like our client Wendy O:
With confidence, we can say that our leadership development academy is unmatched. Our clients are C-suite executives, small business owners, directors, managers, entrepreneurs, non-profit leaders, community leaders, and more.
What they all have in common: They are high achievers and purpose-driven individuals who aim to leave a positive legacy through their work and life.
Building up your career based on your own merit is one thing, and deserving of praise and respect.
However, climbing that career ladder means ascending into roles where you’re in charge of and collaborating with more people. If you want to remain productive you can’t tuck yourself away with your computer and hide behind the scenes.
People are coming at you with questions, concerns, ideas, wants, needs, complaints, small talk, requests, suggestions, and so much more.
You can be smart and successful and still feel personally affected by it all.
Those hard-won credentials can become a constant strain without practicing how to control your own emotions and lead people with a clear head. These are problems we understand and have designed an entire 10-month academy around.
Will you be one of the leaders in our cohort for 2022? Get your application in and let’s talk:
Here are some common problems our clients faced that were sure signals it was time to hone in on their leadership skills:
The Good News: Great leadership is something that is learned.
And every good leader (like you) can always get better.
The return on investment and energy makes it wildly worthwhile.
These all-too-common dilemmas may seem like issues to fix.
They’re merely symptoms caused by a need for more dynamic leadership.
We can help you with modern leadership strategies regardless of the issues you face when it comes to working with others, delegating, collaborating, and building trust and rapport with your employees or colleagues.
This training is so effective that many organizations end up enrolling more than one member of their team!
Most of our clients have an extensive background or education in business, management and leadership. And that wasn’t enough to prepare them for ongoing issues when supervising others and organizations.
Knowledge will only get you about 10% of the way.
The other 90% comes through practice, coaching, more practice, and more coaching.
Could you say with 100% confidence that you are leading your business or organization at the peak level needed to achieve the goals you have set for yourself?
This list could obviously go on. The point is, every single one of us benefits from addressing our leadership on an ongoing basis. You don’t do that through books. You do that with expert coaching.
In LeadWell, we make application and observation one of the most important parts of the academy. On top of your access to our three advanced leadership courses, you get access to our weekly meetings where you put to action everything you’re learning and receive real-time coaching from me.
Two types of practice sessions are used.
Through a potent combination of practice and “feedforward,” the “hot seat” approach we use in our group sessions facilitates self-reflective insight and supercharges your progress. Triad coaching then allows you to play the role of coach, coachee, and observer to really integrate every level of learning possible.
We learn the most when we are faced with a situation where we have to think and act in the moment. That’s why we also include 1:1 coaching sessions spread out throughout your enrollment to strategize around real-life situations you’ll be facing at work or in your personal life.
You learn in LeadWell, implement in real-life, then get on a coaching call with us to debrief and refine your leadership coaching skills even further.
The only way to get this level of support from us is through LeadWell. Get your application in ASAP:
Anyone who is in a position of leadership in their organization and knows the value of investing in their own personal development. This is an academy with a high-level of support with leaders from all backgrounds.
If you skip down toward the bottom of this page, you’ll see a long list of quotes from very happy clients:
You have to know how to play the role of boss, coach, mentor, colleague, director, collaborator, mediator and more
In LeadWell we check egos at the door.
No need to share your title or years of experience. We call this “the great equalizer”. It helps our clients trust the process & the people, as well as stay out of the weeds of advice-giving & comparison.
Every single person in LeadWell is tasked with the unmatched responsibility of leadership.
It’s a noble position to be in, and one that will challenge you in unexpected ways. Even if you’ve taken leadership training before and if you’ve seen yourself as someone who works well with others, we always have room to grow.
The Great Resignation is upon us and even decent leaders find themselves with unsatisfied teams & employees.
❌ Their teams aren’t thriving, burnout is too common, employees are disengaged, turnover is too high, and productivity is too low.
✅ Good leaders MUST evolve & expand their leadership skills in order to thrive in these wild and unrelenting times in business.
That’s why we encourage leaders from multiple organizations to enroll together.

You’ll uplevel all of your leadership skills and go from manager to expert coach and mentor to your team.
Many organizations attempt to implement coaching skills in order to lead their employees and co-workers. What ends up happening is a lot of advising, critiquing, and even shaming. You may have even been on the receiving end of this. LeadWell touches on modern coaching and leadership strategies to really build a culture of positive and effective leadership that both you and your team will feel. Whether you are a leader in a small business or a large organization, you have to wear many hats. Knowing which leadership hat to use when is key.
In this course, you’ll understand what coaching can really do, integrate actual skills, and practice, practice, practice.
Become a master leader and mentor to your team.
Unless you are one of the few who have had thorough leadership development along with expert coaching to increase your effectiveness, most leaders struggle to adapt their style from situation to situation. Developing strong leadership skills and regularly practicing them will give you a competitive advantage: integrating coaching equips you to execute a variety of leadership styles more easily and with greater effectiveness. Emotional Intelligence (EQ) is what today’s top leaders who are getting results have. It is THE top sought-after trait for organizations looking for leaders. The good news: Unlike your IQ, EQ can grow exponentially through practice and honest feedback. We’ll sit down with you, roll up our sleeves and co-create your custom strategy to integrate your enhanced skills into daily habits.
You select three leadership competencies that will give you the biggest bang-for-your-buck in your organization, help you develop your team and ultimately make leading easier.
I’m Jen Bertsch, Founder and Master Coach at LeadWell. From an early age, I’ve been known for my moxy. At a very young age I started working retail when an older colleague noticed my go-getter attitude and remarked, “I don’t know where you got it, but kid, you’ve got moxy!” It stopped me in my tracks as this is something my dad used to say about me too!
Talk about prophetic. From that point forward, I was known for “having guts.”
Fast forward ten years later working at the Duluth Area Chamber of Commerce and my courage and risk-taking started to feel stretched thin. I kept saying “yes” to everything until overwhelm completely took over. I went from high-achiever to feeling like I couldn’t accomplish anything well! With a little hope, as well as skepticism, I used my allotted personal development dollars to hire a coach.
Turned out to be one of the best decisions of my life. I began blowing my work goals out of the water and breaking through the invisible ceiling that had been holding me back. I accomplished other BIG goals that I didn’t even know I wanted…like losing thirty pounds and making new friends. I said goodbye to that overwhelming feeling!
With my moxy renewed, I led an award-winning membership campaign that took membership to an all-time high.
Suddenly, the world opened up with possibilities, including entrepreneurship. I trained as a coach myself and launched my practice in 2007.
In 2012, I was asked to give a demonstration of “what coaching looks like” at a live conference of 200 top senior leaders. It turned out to be the start of my “hot seat coaching” idea, as I coached an executive on stage.
Over the next three years, I helped train 70 leaders in coaching. In the process, I discovered how important practicing coaching is for leaders who are responsible for developing the potential of others.
From that inspiration, I developed and launched the wildly successful LeadWell Academy in 2015, which features live coach mentoring. It’s received stellar reviews from the participants who have gone on to achieve measurable results in their lives and businesses.
Now, I’m enjoying life as a successful 20/hr a week entrepreneur and helping leaders become more accomplished and happy humans through our premier LeadWell Academy which features the top trend, boss-as-coach leadership development.
It was coaching that helped me master my time management so I could work fewer hours but still increase revenue, and even spend more intentional time with my family.
Now, my life mission is to help other leaders get to the same place in their lives.
YES! We encourage more than one person from your organization to enroll together. We even offer a discount on tuition if you do enroll more than one team member.
Nope! We have leaders at all levels in all kinds of organizations and businesses. I like to say we help leaders who need to lead other leaders. We have managers, supervisors, independent contractors who are entrepreneurs building their own team, co-owners, team leaders, and more. We’ve had leaders join and then end up encouraging their employers to join with them after experiencing the transformation themselves. We have also had employers join and then enroll their team members.
Good news! All leaders have room to grow. The fact that you’re here and interested in getting even better at what you do shows your commitment to your own growth plus the growth of your company. Organizational and company leaders have to work with people at least 75% of the time. Just like you would take the time to learn your work inside and out so you can deliver the best possible outcomes at work, mastering leadership is you taking the initiative to always get better at what you do and what you offer your workplace.
It’s never too early to start on your leadership journey. Studying and practicing leadership as soon as possible can help prevent so many future headaches. It’s also helped some of our clients get highly sought after promotions!
Each weekly Lab (group call) will be recorded, time-stamped with helpful notes and will be shared. You’ll have the opportunity to connect and get input on your team development weekly through submitting questions and watching the replay. The important thing is that you carve out time to do your development work and stay connected through the community.
Our primary audiences are business owners, CEOs, or senior leaders who are responsible for the team and their development. If that is you, then this is an opportunity you should consider.
Leadership development in the form of leader-as-coach training is a top trend. It gives leaders a robust and advantageous foundation for communication that is highly engaging and empowering, which are two key factors in growing organizations.
Our clients are focused on increasing their ability to work ON the business and empower other leadership instead of always being IN the business. The time you invest in developing other leaders in your business means a huge return on free time, revenue, and growth overall.
Today’s hybrid workforce calls for a different way of leading.
Are you ready? It’s time to level up!
Imagine what it will feel like to lead with more ease,
authenticity, newfound vision and discipline.
