Learn the tools to manage and lead yourself for maximized living.

Welcome to "Adulting"

The Self Leadership 101 program was created to help you learn all the personal and professional skills needed to maximize your life at work and home. It is great for recent graduates navigating from college-to-career or people who have been wandering through adulthood and ready to take control of their life. 

The program provides education and coaching to create a life vision, manage your resources of time and money, lead without a title, and communicate with anyone which will set you up to get the most out of life!

For Early Career professionals - the first 5-10 years after college will significantly impact the following 20-30 years. If you learn to manage your time and money early on, they'll only work harder for you later on instead of trying to correct the mistakes you made right out of college. When you learn to communicate with your boss and coworkers, you'll find greater success in your career.

In order to lead others, you have to lead yourself well. Why not learn the necessary self leadership skills and put them to practice now.

A Message from Nicolai

 If you know me, you know my mission in life is to help people live on purpose. I am obsessed with personal growth and challenging others to always improve themselves. I wish there was a Self Leadership program when I graduated from college. I could have avoided so many time, financial, and career mistakes. I am determined to help everyone who is ready to get set up on the right track to live an intentional life. So, if you're serious about getting intentional with your life, seeking opportunities to succeed at work, and wanting to pursue your own personal goals, be sure to sign up!

Frequently asked questions

Why did you create the Self Leadership 101 Program?

I created the program that I wish I had right out of college. I didn't learn about goals, personal finance, or work-place communication when I was in college. I made so many mistakes that cost me big. I spent years fixing some of my shortfalls. I created the SL101 program so future graduates and new career employees could avoid the same mistakes I made. I created the program so they could learn and practice the necessary leadership skills to thrive in their careers and pursue what matters most to them outside of work.

What can I expect from the monthly coaching?

Expect to be challenged. Expect to increase your performance and be kept accountable to your goals. You'll be encouraged on your progress and pushed to go further.

What happens when I sign up?

You'lle receive a welcome email and link to your personal online profile. At the first meeting you'll receive a 3-ring binder where you'll insert the handouts from each meeting. After the first meeting, we will schedule your monthly coaching calls.

What if I miss a meeting?

If schedules allow, you can make up to one meeting during your 6-month program. If you truly care about your personal and professional development, you'll make these meetings a priority each month.

What happens if I leave the company who paid for me to attend?

We understand moving companies happens from time to time. If you leave a company who paid for your membership, you should do the right thing and offer to pay them back.

What happens if I’m not satisfied with the program?

We believe that you'll receive at least 10X the value from our program than you paid for it. If you attend every meeting and participate in the monthly coaching calls and are not completely satisfied, we will refund you or your company the registration fee. There's no risk for signing up for the ECD program. If you're not more than satisfied, we'll refund your money.
