2021 Legacy Intensive

Your Roadmap to Greatness

Your 2021 reset & path to joining the great leaders of our time.  Your time is now.

"Tevis is a force to be reckoned with...she holds a metaphorical mirror to see yourself & a clear pathway to embrace challenges. Hits the spot."

DANIEL GOLDFARB, LEAD RISK R&D, BLOOMBERG LP

The Power of Legacy-Based Leadership

Even good leaders can be unaware of how their own choices either sabotage or amplify both their satisfaction &  impact on the organization. Great ones are aware & work to optimize their impact relentlessly, with curiosity, courage & desire to grow.  They don't leave it to chance. 

 

The Legacy Intensive is for senior leaders who long to realize their dream of positively impactful leadership. 

 

Does this sound like you?

  • Love your work, but politics within your team keep you up at night?

  • Pained by the gap between what the organization says about itself & the workday reality? 

  • Agree with the vision, but in the course of day-to-day it seems like it's just a bunch of nice ideas?

  • Sacrificing self-care to get whatever else done each day? 

  • Struggling to have boundaries given the work-from-anywhere reality of now?

  • Invest time, energy & resources into helping others to be at their best, but what about you? 

  • You've nailed your professional competencies but has your growth in wisdom has been left to chance?

  • Are you ever successful enough or truly satisfied?

  • Do you lack energy to pursue your dreams...(if you even remember what your dreams are)? 

  • Many leaders can name countless things that irritate…but what about delights?

  • Have a feeling of "is this really it?" 

  • Despite how much you’ve accomplished, still don’t feel fulfilled?

  • Hear others talk about life-changing experiences & wonder when/if you'll ever experience one?

  • Observe others you respect as leaders & humans who seem to not have sacrificed so much of who they are to enjoy their success?

  • Find yourself feeling guilty any time you spend time energy or money on yourself?

 

The Legacy Intensive activates your greatness. 

 

Awareness is key. Personal insight is pivotal. Fostering high-impact leadership behaviors that optimize already good leaders, The Legacy Intensive brings mission alignment, vision, active interchange of ideas (no matter how far outside of existing paradigms), & that precious, rarely seen ability: to hold oneself accountable.  

 

Based on the teachings of executive coach/author Tevis Trower, Leadership Innovator who Inc. Magazine  says "helps executives use the lives they have as raw clay for realizing their ideal selves", we'll start with a deep-dive 1:1 for you to clarify what's working for you, what's not, ideate what you'd like to bring alive in your work & relationships this year.   Each month you get a no-holds-barred 1:1 to dig in, figure out what's going well, what you've left on the table, what actions & heightened awareness in the moment you need to travel your envisioned path.  Your Legacy will benefit your organization, your family, all whose lives you touch. 

 

If you're ready to work on greatness, this is the way.

"Delightful...charismatic... Tevis is a breath of fresh air in the staid world of leadership development.  Brilliant at teaching executives to increase their influence to build a legacy of lifetime contribution."

DRIVERs

When applied to the Arena of your entire life, everything that transpires at work or in personal interactions is simply fodder for your skillful evolution. 

 

From the perspective of the hero in the Arena, these drivers benefit not only your own performance & satisfaction, but ripples throughout your work & life for a legacy that endures for years or even decades to come.

is this for you?

Legacy Intensive is for senior leaders who long to feel the power of inspiring, authentic presence; graceful influence; & model collaborative leadership throughout the organization.   

 

You're ready for Legacy if:

  • You've accomplished most if not all of your titular goals.

  • Have mastery of the usual skillset to performing in your career.  You want to go beyond that.

  • There's a longing for a sense of greater contribution.  For you, settling is not an option.

  • You've admired leaders who are both courageous & alive in their own skin.

  • In the face of a tight schedule, you understand that cultivation of self is something not left to chance.  You want to learn.

  • Heightened ability to hear & act from your deepest insights...even when they push the norms.

Building Your Roadmap to Impact

A deep dive dedicated to you.  Your success.  Your dreams.  Your roadmap to achieving them.

We'll look at what's working, what's not.  You'll get clear on where you tug at your own reins, and where you hold them back.  You'll emerge with not only a roadmap that resonates with your longing from your marrow, but a clear sense of exactly the practices and commitments that will allow you to live true to your roots, and experience all the courage, fortitude and agility that comes with it.
