Leadership Development For New Managers
SKIP THE DOUBTS AND
 LEAD SUCCESSFULLY WITH 
THE APS METHOD!

In a world where everyone wants to be liked, be the leader who garners respect, rewards, and results.
If you’re like 99% of us, then you aren’t one of those rare natural born leaders. 

Instead, you’ll have to learn the skills on the job and with proper training. 

"Wait… what training?" you ask.

Yes, another guess I dare to make is that you never got that leadership training you so urgently need in your first manager role. 

Because the fact is that the skills you need to succeed in a leadership role are completely different to those that made you successful as an Individual Contributor (“IC”). 

Entertain me for a moment and let’s take a look at this LinkedIn poll together.

No, it’s not scientific (forget the R-squares and p-values for a moment). These are the votes by folks like you and I who gave their 2 cents on what really matters to them in 2021. 



It’s funny that we take swim lessons to learn how to swim, go to ski school to learn how to ski, spend tens of thousands of dollars for college to hone our technical skills and level of expertise...

...but when we switch into the leadership phase of our career, we think we can “wing” it or learn as we go.

Wrong! You don’t wing it to become a great leader and climb the ranks to the C-Suite!

Being a leader to others is a big responsibility and you know all eyes are on you. 

Set yourself up for success by learning the leadership principles and systems that help you become a leader who garners respect, rewards, and results. 
IF YOU SAY YES TO AT LEAST 2 OF THE FOLLOWING STATEMENTS, THEN KEEP ON READING BECAUSE THIS IS EXACTLY FOR YOU!
  • You haven’t received any proper leadership training and you’re worried your team can tell. You don’t have a clue how to manage performance, how to delegate well, or how to hold others accountable. You stumble and fumble your way through and it shows. 
  • ​You probably spend 30 minutes to an hour each day second-guessing yourself or ruminating over past conversations wishing you did things differently. “I think I blew it” is a thought that repeats itself in your mind more often than it probably should.
  • ​When someone on your team has a huge win, you feel proud and excited. But then at home sitting on your couch, your own fear of failing kicks in and you wonder if you’re really cut out to lead this team.
  • ​You love supporting your team but if we’re being honest, you don’t even start your own work until 4pm when you’re already pretty worn out. You realize that falling short on your own work is a real issue when it comes to your own performance review. Plus, it also just stinks not to be able cross things off your to do list.  
  • Emotions are another tough part of the job. In the last month, you not only lost your cool with one of your directs, you almost lost your cool with your boss. Maybe you also lose your nerves in rooms full of execs and never really get to show them what you’re truly capable of.
  • ​You walk into meetings with the best intentions to hold your directs accountable or give candid feedback but minutes into the conversation you worry about being too “pushy” or “bossy” and you start to sugarcoat your message. You walk out of the meetings still with a lump in your stomach and wishing you had the guts and skills to actually say what you think.

THERE IS GOOD NEWS!

None of these challenges are your fault!

According to a range of studies, 60% of new managers fail or underperform within their first 2 years on the job!

It's shocking and it hurts! Yet, I see the reality of this way too often. 

If you underperform, you'll miss out on opportunities for career growth, salary raises, and job promotions which obviously hurts financially...

But what's even worse is that your self-confidence will drop and you might even start thinking about giving up that dream of reaching the C-Suite one day. 

And that's what's so hard!

Because the truth is that the problem is not you!

The reason all this is happening is that a vast majority of new managers never receive the leadership training they desperately need. 

Fact is that this is likely the biggest transition in your entire career! Not only do you need a new set of skills but to become a great leader you also need to change your mindset and perspective on numerous topics.

 And the issue is that you don't know what you don't know yet - and without training and support, you're sadly setting yourself up to fail. 
IMAGINE IF INSTEAD, YOU...
  • ​See others around you get anxious and reactive when challenges pop up but you stay cool, calm, and collected no matter what. People love this about you and they trust you when things get tough. 
  • ​No longer stumble and fumble through moments with your team. Instead, you have a rock-solid leadership system that not only prevents many challenges but also gives you the confidence that you can handle any tricky situations that come your way.
  • ​Live by a set of timeless leadership principles that guide your decisions and behaviors so that the days of ruminating, constant self-doubt, and second-guessing are things of the past. 
  • ​Find yourself command a room, speak up with confidence, and share your best ideas regardless of who’s at the table. You’ll leave your meetings feeling proud and excited about the results you’re creating and the respect you receive. 
  • ​Finally got out of the hamster wheel and now run your days versus the days running you. You are not only leading well and delivering excellent work yourself but you also find time to strategize and plan ahead.
  • ​Realize how much your team has grown and how everyone is taking full ownership of their work and beyond (!) because you finally figured out how to delegate, foster accountability, and  coach people instead of constantly telling everyone what to do.

LET ME INTRODUCE YOU TO THE 
LEADERSHIP ACCELERATOR
WAIT, WHAT IS THE LEADERSHIP ACCELERATOR EXACTLY?
Well, you could say it’s the soup-to-nuts training and coaching program for new managers who are ready to be the leader who garners respect, rewards, and results. 

You could also say it’s the place where new managers meet, ramp up their leadership skills, form lasting relationships with peers, and develop the resilience, courage, and confidence that brings to light their true leadership superpowers. 

Next up, you’ll get a closer look at the...

-> The kinds of results participants have gotten
-> What the Leadership Accelerator includes
-> The super awesome benefits that come with the program

And when you're ready, you can schedule a Leadership Accelerator Call with me below.
Schedule a call to see if this is the right fit for you. I promise I don’t bite, twist arms or play games. 

We will not only develop a clear strategy together for how to elevate your leadership starting right away but I’ll also happily answer any of your questions you might have. 
You used to have a choice between…
... investing in impactful but costly private coaching for about $800+/month,
 
... buying books or watching cookie-cutter videos with a small investment but zero personal support to turn insights into actions,

... attending seminars or workshops which are fun and inspiring but two weeks later you're back in the old rut and, if we're honest, not much has changed.

Or you could skip it all, keep winging it and likely...

... not receive maximum salary raises and bonuses,

... miss out on promotions or new job opportunities, 

... not show up as the leader your team needs and deserves, and

... keep struggling, doubting yourself, and letting your emotions getting the best of you.
BUT the Leadership Accelerator solves all that.
The Leadership Accelerator is specifically designed to create an effective and fun coaching and learning experience while keeping it affordable.
  • High Knowledge Retention: the combination of training and coaching helps solidify the learnings and turn knowledge into action week-by-week
  • Group Support: Learn from and receive support from others who face similar challenges to yours
  • Accountability: The small group experience provides personal accountability to help you implement what you learn
  • Personal Experience: Receive personal 1-on-1 coaching and support that considers your actual situation and challenges
  • ​Affordability: The investment in the program is a fraction of the value you receive and a fraction of what traditional leadership development programs cost

THE APS METHOD FOR YOUR LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT

As a student, you will benefit from a blended learning approach that allows for flexibility with your schedule, provides accountability, and offers the ongoing support you'll need to make lasting changes.

Unlike one-off workshops, seminars or digital courses which either lack personal support, fail to help you act on what you learn, or simply overwhelm you with information, the Leadership Accelerator Program follows the unique APS Method (Awareness, Principles, System) to optimize knowledge retention, to turn insights into action, and create lasting new leadership behaviors that will benefit you for the rest of your career!
PHASE #1
Awareness
Establish Self, Team, and Stakeholder Awareness and Gain Complete Clarity on Role Expectations

Build a solid understanding of yourself, your team, and your stakeholders and get crystal clear on the expectations that guide your role and responsibilities so that you’re no longer swimming in unclear waters but know exactly where you’re at, where to go, and which potential blindspots to be on the lookout for.

Why this phase is important: 
If this step is skipped, you’ll never be able to bring out your own full potential or unite the different strengths of your team and work towards a shared goal. 

How we will do it: 
By uncovering your core motivation, your innate approach to conflict, your strengths, and your overdone strengths you gain a deep understanding of who you are as a leader and how to best communicate and engage with people whose thinking and behavior appear much different from your own. 

In addition, by going through a Team & Stakeholder Analysis you’ll be able to identify the strengths, preferences, and personal styles of those you work with most closely. 

And you will develop a clear alignment on expectations others have on you and you have on the people on your team. By doing so, you build the foundation for success and a high level of accountability.

Tools we will use: 
- The Leader’s User Guide
- Strengths Deployment Inventory Assessment
- Team & Stakeholder Analysis

PHASE #2
Principles
Learn and Incorporate Personal Leadership Principles

Learn and apply the leadership principles that proved to be effective over 2,000 years by successful leaders such as Marcus Aurelius, George Washington, Theodor Roosevelt, Nelson Mandela, Arianna Huffington, Jack Dorsey, and Bill Gates to name just a few. 

These principles are like the bottom of the iceberg that together with your personal values define your leadership and determine your long-term success. 

Why this phase is important: 
As a leader, a clear set of principles are like a user manual to a car. When you understand what they are you’ll become unstoppable. 

The principles show you how to think as a leader and they guide you with clarity when you face adversity, when you feel overwhelmed or pulled into too many directions, when you need to stay grounded in the midst of chaos and when you’re unsure what to do when things get tough.

How we will do it: 
Get to know the core leadership principles which cultivate your courage, growth, self-discipline and equity
Learn how to incorporate the principles into your leadership style and become the in-demand leader people trust and respect.

Tools we will use: 
- The Blueprint Tool
- The Thought Model
- The Principles

PHASE #3
SYSTEM
Develop Your Consistent Leadership System

This system comprises tools, frameworks, and best practices to successfully manage, lead and inspire your team. You don’t have to reinvent the wheel for something that many other leaders have struggled with and ultimately figured out how to master. 

Stand on their shoulders and implement the time-tested practices and routines to build upon and bulletproof your success as a leader now and in your future roles.

Why this phase is important: 
When you implement a proven system of tools and processes with consistency, you will immediately elevate your leadership effectiveness. You will have the tools to get a hold of your calendar, stop reacting to everyone and everything around you, and finally lead proactively. You will also have a system in place that enables you to effectively coach, provide feedback and engage your team consistently. Plus, you’ll be equipped to navigate and resolve conflict with a step-by-step framework to communicate effectively and to quickly de-escalated tricky interpersonal situations.

How we will do it: 
Learn the tools, frameworks and best practices that build your core leadership and management system so you’re prepared for what this new role will require from you.
Through training, and personalized coaching you’ll be able to implement the tools into your unique leadership situation and personalize them so that they work for YOU!

Tools we will use:
- Monday Hour One
- Accountability Dial
- 3x3 Delegating Tool
- Coaching Ladder
- ISID Feedback Model
- Conflict Sequence
- Motivational Value System

WHAT OTHERS SAY...
“one of the best investments I made in myself and my career"
"Ramona was one of the best investments I made in myself in my career. She helped as I transitioned to an international leader, managing remote teams, communicating with teams and executives in other countries, as well as inheriting a team and how to successfully earn and build trust. Ramona will help you uncover blind spots, and help you confidently overcome them."

My STORY 

My first few years as a manager were a struggle…
I considered myself a high-performer and was often referred to as the "go-to person." So, when I was asked to lead my former peers and build a new team, I thought that I got this...

But I was wrong! I had no clue how to lead a team. 

I struggled, I was stressed out, and felt frustrated with myself and my team more often than not...
I didn't realize there were tools and frameworks available that would have helped me overcome all these challenges.  
I didn't realize there were tools and frameworks available that would have helped me overcome all these challenges.  
Until one day, a friend recommended that I start working with a leadership coach. That's when things started to turn around for me.

By investing heavily in my own professional development, I climbed the ranks to become a VP in a global private equity firm within a few years.

But more important than my title was that I actually started to enjoy leading people and teams.

What used to feel stressful became fun and fulfilling.

Today, I'm honored and blessed to have coached or trained hundreds of leaders in fast-growing organizations (including those featured below and many more) who understand they'll get ahead faster and easier if they stand on the shoulders of those who have gone before them.

And because you might just be one of them, I can't wait to connect with you as well!

WHAT OTHERS SAY...
“Been able to improve my effectiveness as a leader in many different ways"
"Ramona is an excellent leadership coach. With her guidance, I’ve been able to improve my effectiveness as a leader in many different ways. Her frameworks, questions and suggestions have been incredibly beneficial to me and have had a direct impact in the way I lead my team and work with my stakeholders. I can’t recommend her enough to anyone looking to strengthen their leadership skills.”
MARK LANGLIE
Director of Talent Acquisition

TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE

THE CLOCK IS TICKING. WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU DON’T INVEST IN YOUR LEADERSHIP SKILLS?
... You'll likely develop ineffective leadership habits that will be harder to overcome down the line.

... You’ll continue to learn mainly through trial & error, which naturally means more setbacks, conflict, and misunderstandings with others.

...And without the right support, self-doubt and worry might creep and send you on an emotional rollercoaster that drains your energy and mental focus.

Plus, you'll continue to be on your own rather than to be supported and guided by others who know what it's like to lead as a new manager. 

WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING

TESTIMONIAL
"Ramona has been the single biggest factor To SUCCESSFULLY TRANSITION FROM an IC TO A DIRECTOR ROLE"
"Ramona has been the single biggest factor in me being able to survive a thrilling and successful but challenging trajectory from individual contributor to Director of Engineering at a hyper-growth technology startup in less than two years.

She's a terrific person who is fun and interesting to work with, and also very caring. She is also incredibly insightful and forceful in not letting you, as a leader, rest on your laurels, fool yourself with distorted thinking or mis-evaluation of your own impact, nor give up on yourself or your team when the going is tough.

Ramona is amazing at helping you hold up a mirror to how you think, act, and communicate when you are trying to lead and achieve. This helps you to see some bad habits and self-defeating behaviors that you need to stop ignoring or making excuses for, but also to see talent and ability that you might have been too scared, inexperienced, or tentative to notice or cultivate.

If you want to be a better leader or grow better leaders in your organization, Ramona has my absolutely unqualified recommendation!"
JOSHUA SAMBERG
Director of Engineering
TESTIMONIAL
Ramona's tools and frameworks will help me for years or even decades to come...
"Ramona has been a huge help in developing more effective leadership habits and in discovering a career path that I feel passionate about and is effective with my personal leadership style.

With that, I’m now able to feel more confident, develop better relationships and overall be more successful in my role as a manager. She is incredibly resourceful and her arsenal of tools and frameworks will help me for years or even decades to come.
Ramona has recently helped me work through a challenging situation I and was so grateful to have had her on my side as a partner and guide the entire way through. 

I highly recommend Ramona and her Leadership Accelerator program to anyone who is eager to learn and grow as a leader."
Diane perez
Global Ethics & Compliance Manager
TESTIMONIAL
"The Program is transformative and I'm much better equipped"
"Ramona is the first coach I've worked with, and I feel extremely fortunate to have had her guidance and support during my transition to a Director-level role in marketing in a fast-growing software company. 

Prior to joining the Leadership Accelerator and working with Ramona, I was getting by on intuition alone - but very quickly I realized the benefits of adopting and using frameworks in my approach to leadership. 

The program is transformative, and I'm now much better equipped to delegate effectively, coach and inspire success in others, have the tough conversations, and more. I definitely recommend Ramona to existing and future leaders who aspire to bring out the best in their teams."
GARRETT GENEST
Head of Growth
TESTIMONIAL
"invaluable in helping me identify my blind spots, navigate a number of challenges, and gain more confidence"

Ramona is a supportive and thoughtful coach whose insightful advice has been invaluable in helping me identify my blind spots, navigate a number of challenges, and gain more confidence. 

I highly recommend Ramona and her program to anyone who is looking to grow as a leader.

QUESTIONS?

Frequently Asked Questions.
How will this program be delivered?
This is a 12-week program. Each week, you will receive access to a new training module, and we will meet for a coaching call on a select day and time. In addition, you'll get assignments to complete during the week, and I'm available for ad-hoc support as and when you need it. 

To start the program, you'll be asked to complete an assessment, and we'll schedule a 1-on-1 call to debrief the results and discuss specific challenges and goals for your personal situation. 

Towards the end of the program, we will have one additional 1-on-1 call to plan out your future development goals and next steps. 
What if I'm not sure if this is right for me?
If you're unsure, we suggest that you go ahead and schedule a call with Ramona. She will be able to answer any questions you might have. 

If you simply want to check on a couple of things first, feel free to email us at contact@ramonashaw.com.
Who is this not for?
This program is not for people looking to find a new job in a leadership role. This program is designed specifically for new managers who have recently been promoted or are a few years into their job and who want to now learn and apply the critical leadership skills no one has taught them before. 
What if I can’t make the live calls?
No problem. All calls will be recorded and made available to you within a few hours after the live calls so that you can watch them whenever you have the time. 

If you have questions, you can submit them in advance, and I'll make sure to address them during the live coaching call, so you can get the answer when you watch the recording. You can also reach out directly and ask for ad-hoc support on urgent topics. 
How much time will this take each month?
You will need to invest about 2 hours each week to watch the training videos, participate in the coaching calls, and follow through on your action plan for that week.

I know you're busy and wonder how you could possibly add more to your workload than you already have. However, one of the first trainings will be about productivity so you can find ways to gain back at least 5 hours of your time. Plus, what you'll learn in this training will save you a significant amount of time in managing your team and dealing with issues that you'll be able to prevent. 
Can my employer help cover the cost of this program?
Check with your manager and your human resources team to determine your professional development budget as well as any leadership development, training, or tuition reimbursement budgets that might be available for you. Use the following request template to make your case.

I suggest to include the Program Overview linked to below to help explain why it is important that you participate in this program. It outlines learning objectives, program deliverables, and costs. 
What is the refund policy?
We do not offer a refund. However, if within the first 14 days you are unexpectedly unable to continue the program, we allow you to transfer the seat to someone else or pause your participation until you're ready to engage again. 
When can I get started?
The Leadership Accelerator kicks off with a new group at the beginning of each month.
 
To secure a spot, we suggest to sign up at least 2 weeks prior to the start date.
