The TLS Learning Academy™ is Live!


We know that managing work
is different than leading people.


We know you value your managers and want to invest in their growth in a meaningful and effective way.  We can help!

Consider the managers/leaders on your team. Do they …

  • Struggle with high levels of stress based on workload?
  • Face complex challenges that require clarity and decisiveness?
  • Lack confidence in their ability to lead others?

Do you want to …

  • Attract and retain top talent in the face of a tight labor market?
  • Equip managers with practical and effective skills ?
  • Provide meaningful, immediately applicable training that is cost-effective?


The Leadership Experience (TLE) is a unique program for managers who may have never received any formal leadership training. It’s based on what we’ve learned over years of coaching leaders and designing programs. It focuses on the most essential aspects of leadership, including:

  • Confidence
  • Authenticity
  • Trust
  • Balance
  • Boundaries

During TLE, managers will reflect on their leadership style and skills to determine which aspects hinder and which support their ability to lead effectively.

TLE coaches establish a safe environment that supports giving and receiving constructive feedback. Managers develop strong interpersonal connections with other group members while receiving one-on-one attention through individual coaching sessions.

They will be able to apply new skills, strategies, and techniques in the workplace as well as with clients they may serve, starting as soon as they complete Module One!



The Leadership Experience is a unique program for managers who have little (or no) management training. This program delivers value in very specific ways…

  • Managers will be equipped with practical and effective leadership skills that may be applied right away
  • TLE is a powerful way to recognize, reward, and support managers, especially those who have navigated the past 3+ years of challenge
  • Priced at less than $100/hour, TLE is designed to be budget-friendly while delivering amazing value to each participant

Why Choose TLE for Your Manager?

Who Am I Really?

By participating in TLE, managers become more self-aware. This allows them to more effectively motivate and inspire their teams which helps the team be more aligned. This ultimately drives high-quality service and a deeper mission-driven focus! Win. Win. Win.

I Can Do It!

We can’t overstate the role that confidence plays in leadership. Leaders who believe in their own abilities are able to shift from “I’m not sure I can” to “If I can’t, I’ll figure it out” – which drives innovation, productivity, and all-around success!

The Value of Being Valued

Staffing challenges are real. TLE is a wonderful way to let your manager know that you see the value they bring. It gives you a powerful way to support their growth and reinforce their commitment to the organization. Show them you care by investing in them!

My leadership skills have grown immensely

As a new manager, I have greatly benefited from the TLE program and feel this program has provided me with valuable leadership knowledge. My leadership skills have grown immensely and I attribute that to the coaching sessions that have helped me grow in the areas I need to grow, recognize my areas of strength, and apply the skills I've been learning in the sessions.

Environment of safety, sharing, empowerment

I was initially hesitant about joining this group as I was doubtful that I'd feel comfortable sharing my leadership and work challenges in front of strangers. I could not have been more mistaken. Alicia and Stacie, through their complete authenticity, created an environment of safety, sharing, and empowerment.

Hands down the best

I loved this. Hands down the best. Great content and great interaction. I would highly recommend it to my leadership.

I feel stronger

Would love to sign my staff up for this as well. I feel like a stronger employee and supervisor!

I am now more aware

I am now more aware of my leadership style and how that style impacts my ability to connect with my staff to support them in their work.

Below you will find an outline of each of the six modules, including the flow of topics from month to month. For a more detailed program description, feel free to download the PDF.

Strengthen Confidence

Participants begin by diving into the topic of Confidence. By the end of the module, they will know exactly what they value and what key factors strengthen their confidence.

Lead Authentically

Do you see managers doubting themselves and their abilities? In this session, participants identify their strengths as well as their opportunities for growth (and create a plan to address them). As a bonus, they also discover the power of empowering others.

Build Trust & Manage Conflict

Trust makes or breaks a team. In this module, managers explore team dynamics that either hinders trust or build it. They then create a plan for immediately deepening connections among their team. Participants also explore ways to approach conflict directly and constructively.

Set Boundaries & Make Effective Decisions

Boundaries are necessary for creating healthy relationships. During this module, managers explore how to set and enforce limits within their team. They also utilize a step-by-step process for solving problems and making informed decisions.

Create Balance & Manage Time

Balance is dynamic and constantly changing. In this session, managers explore what balance means to them both at work and at home. They receive strategies to use to stay more in balance and manage time more effectively.

Lead Mindfully & Celebrate the Journey!

Participants reflect on insights gained from the program. They write a Personal Leadership Statement and create a Personal Action Plan. All to support continued growth and sustained success!


As experienced business leaders ourselves, we have a tremendous amount of appreciation for many of the challenges faced by organizational leaders today. This, combined with our extensive executive coaching experience, has resulted in a truly transformational leadership program!

An amazing experience

The TLS Coaches masterfully create a safe space to be vulnerable and explore. Their sincerity, focus, and belief in the mission create an amazing experience.

Really great synergy

The TLS Coaches are fantastic! They have really great synergy and the perfect "vibration" for the work. I really appreciate their way of being during the individual and group coaching sessions - it really helped to reinforce the concepts.

Sessions were a safe space for sharing

Extremely engaging. Always made the sessions a safe space for exploring and sharing.


As you can see, we are enthusiastic about supporting leaders! We are also passionate about TLE, primarily because we understand the need for effective leadership development and know, based on thousands of hours of supporting leaders, that a program like TLE is a truly unique and transformational experience!

Here is a quick review of the key benefits for managers:

Experiencing both group and individual coaching sessions, and learning from (and with) a dynamic group of leaders while also receiving individualized support from a Certified Coach.
Participating in a six-month program allows managers to schedule the group coaching sessions into their calendar in a manageable way. It also means they have time to learn new skills and strategies and practice them immediately while also building their professional network.
The fully automated 24/7 portal, as well as unlimited email access, means it is always possible to receive program support in a timely manner.


We’ve addressed some of the more common questions we hear below. If you have others, please feel free to reach out.

Who is this program for?

This program is designed for managers who have received little-to-no formal leadership training.

Are payment plans possible?

Yes, we want to make this as affordable as possible! During the online registration process, you will see the payment plan options that are currently available.

Can organizations sponsor participants?

Absolutely! Participants can sign up on their own or be sponsored by their organization. Payment is online and the process is simple.

How much time is required outside of the monthly group sessions?

That’s totally up to each participant! At a minimum, there are 18 hours of group experience and four, 1-hour coaching sessions over the course of the 6-month program. Other than that, any other activities or efforts are totally discretionary. Our participants tell us that they just naturally begin to incorporate their learning into their leadership daily activities!

How many managers will be the TLE group?

The maximum size of the cohort is 10. This way we ensure that we are able to provide personalized attention during group coaching sessions.

Is it possible for multiple managers from the same organization to participate in the same cohort? Is there a discount?

Yes! We have found that multiple managers from the same organization enjoy the opportunity to participate together in this kind of forum (and don’t worry, if for some reason there is a challenging dynamic between co-workers, we can accommodate that too!).

Please contact us to learn about any preferred pricing should you wish to send multiple managers through the program. Depending on the number you are considering, we can bring TLE to you and offer an organization-specific program should that meet you and your managers’ needs.

Do you host an information session about TLE where I (or my staff) can learn more about the program and determine it’s the right fit?

We sure do!  Our next information session is Tuesday, September 20th from 12:00-1:00 pm EST.  Register Here!
