Praise for Leadership GLUE

Kae Wagner’s Leadership GLUE is a masterclass in how to walk the entrepreneurial tight rope with grace, confidence and poise.  Julien Barbier | Co-Founder & CEO, Holberton

Exactly the kind of book the world needs right now! Leadership GLUE is the de facto manuscript on THIS generation's ideas of business leadership and what that can and should look like.  Shawn Johal | Business Growth Coach, Elevation Leaders; Bestselling Author of The Happy Leader

Kae Wagner’s Leadership GLUE is an informative, thought-provoking take on the age-old question in business: how does one master the characteristics needed to become a great leader?  Rick Orford | Co-Founder & Executive Producer at Travel Addicts Life, and Bestselling Author of The Financially Independent Millennial

Kae Wagner’s Leadership GLUE is an exciting, revelatory take on business leadership in the 21st century. I especially enjoyed this passage: “This is your business, not your second family. Treat it like a business. You won’t have as much drama and dysfunction, and you’ll get more sleep at night!”  David Fuess |  

From vivid case studies to well-documented research, Wagner presents a clear explanation for the ways in which business leaders often become the roadblock to their very own success story. This book will keep you thinking for some time after!  Glenn Hopper | CFO, Sandline Discovery, Bestselling Author of Deep Finance

Leadership Glue is for YOU, if:

Business Owners and Leaders...do you see yourself here???

  • You are working over 40 hours a week and you have anxiety, worry and sleepless nights, but can't find a solution that works
  • You have lots of employee turn over so there is no consistency in the work delivered...and you think you might be the cause???
  • You do not have enough leads and you're worried about it
  • Your kids and spouse don't know you...and you are the stranger in your own mirror
  • You took a vacation when??? and went where???
  • You're exhausted at work and at home and haven't seen your friends in eons...plus, they stopped calling and texting you...
  • You want the money, the resources, the freedom and flexibility in your business to do your next big thing but can't find the time or energy
  • You are on the brink of a crisis: burn out, marriage disaster, health issues, financial issues...
  • You know you need help, but you don't know how or where to get it...you don't want to share these issues with people you know
  • You are at the end of your rope...nowhere to go, no one to turn to, no hope in sight
  • You would love to have someone to talk to on a regular basis and get some help with this "stuff"

Frequently Asked Questions

Question #1: What is Leadership Glue?

In Leadership GLUE programs, business owners and company leaders learn how to build the guardrails to protect their Vision and Values and how to develop the Conditions for Success for themselves and their team.  Our clients grow their businesses by going from Hands ON to Hands FREE to Hand OFF. 

This proven process gives the team the ability, responsibility and accountability to expand their bench strength and allows the Leader to get on to the next big thing...not exiting or retiring, but living out his/her life's purpose.

Question #2: What exactly does Hands ON to Hands FREE to Hand OFF look like?

Hands ON: Teaching, training and relationship building

Hands FREE: The Messy Middle where team members demonstrate their ability to work with less supervision

Hand OFF: Like a runner handing off the baton to the next equally capable teammate, this phase gives the Business Owner freedom and flexibility for the next 'big thing.'

Hands On to Hands Free to Hand OFF

Question #3: How quickly will I see results?

Hmmm...interesting question. The truth is that change can be difficult when resisted...but when you initiate growth and development for yourself you are 'shedding old skin' for the new you. Your team will embrace change when you are consistent and congruent.

1. Results will come from your intention combined with taking action. This is in your control.

2. There is a natural incubation period needed for the brain and soul to allow GLUE to become part of your business DNA. It takes time to organically embed GLUE into your natural way of working.

3. The full shift to a Leadership Glue Business will take about 8 - 12 months...but you and your team will see Quick Wins almost immediately.

Question #4: How do I find out if Leadership GLUE is a good program for my team?

The Leadership GLUE program is an engaging and interactive program for executives and managers. You'll earn how to:

1. Up your Inner Game by strengthening your mental fitness and weakening your saboteurs.

2. Increase your Leadership GLUE through improved communication skills.

3. Decrease Conflict by stopping Reactor behavior and moving to Neutral and engaging a Responder mindset.

4. Increase employee engagement through the Q12 survey and engagement module.
