A leadership habit-building platform?

Exactly! Upwardley isn’t a traditional e-learning platform, because we don’t believe your employees can binge-watch their way to becoming a better leader.

To solve for this, every aspect of the Upwardley learning experience is designed to create lasting behavioral change:

  • First, we move beyond passive knowledge transfer by actively engaging participants our specially developed online classes, contextualization exercises, live online group sessions, and individual coaching.
  • Second, we put a habit-building engine at the heart of our platform to give participants the individual support and encouragement to turn what they learn into lasting habits.
So that is how Upwardley’s leadership habit-building platform goes beyond mere knowledge transfer that just leads to momentary strength.

Instead, Upwardley’s leadership habit-building programs provide transformational results.

Make Better Decisions

Challenges Addressed By This Course Program:​

Your managers and leaders are tasked to make 100s if not 1000s of operational decisions per year:  hiring decisions, purchasing decisions, budgeting decisions, work planning decisions, etc. And because these decisions impact every aspect of your organization, you want them to make the best possible decisions.


However, the facts tell us otherwise: A study by Gartner in 2018 found that suboptimal everyday operational decisions cost companies upwards of 3% of profits. So, this program focuses on teaching your people that good decisions come about not through good intuition or luck but through good process and by proactively managing the risks, real and perceived, of those decisions.

What Participants Learn In This Short Course Program:

By participating in this short course of leadership habit-building programs to improve their ability to make better decisions, participants will be able to:

  • Improve the overall quality of their decisions by using 4 strategies to avoid the most common pitfalls of bad decision-making.
  • Use skillful questions to solicit different perspectives and solutions and to encourage critical evaluation of the possible options.
  • Anticipate and evaluate the impact of their decisions and proactively manage how to mitigate potential risks.

Develop & Execute Strategy

Challenges Addressed By This Course Program:​

Often leaders get too caught up in painting the big picture. They have a great vision but fail to flesh out a strategy fully. As a result, their employees complain that they are unclear about what is expected of them. Along with a clear vision of how their team or department will help the organization achieve its overall vision, they need a strategy that outlines the actions they should take and not take and the things they should prioritize and not prioritize in order to achieve the desired strategic goals. Moreover, they need their leader to articulate and provide clear goals, guardrails, guidance, and encouragement to help them execute that strategy.

What Participants Learn In This Short Course Program:

By participating in this short course of leadership habit-building programs to improve their ability to develop and execute strategy, participants will be able to:

  • Translate the overarching company visions into an inspiring divisional, departmental, group, or team vision.
  • Use various tools and frameworks to structure their strategy development efforts, whether that is for a whole business, a department, an individual product or service line, or a region.
  • Make better informed ongoing strategic trade-offs of what not to do and what to do to achieve your organization’s goals.
  • Ensure the proper execution of a strategy through a 4 phase process, which helps avoid common pitfalls that usually undermine the successful implementation of a strategy.

Create People-Centric Leaders

Challenges Addressed By This Course Program:​

Just hiring the best talent is no guarantee for creating a successful team. People don’t always naturally get along and personal agendas cause them to pull in opposite directions. Nor does a good salary provide sufficient motivation for them to do their best work for you. Furthermore, the inability of many leader’s to give effective feedback undermines the ongoing development of employees’ skills and with that the overall performance of your organization.

What Participants Learn In This short Course Program:

By participating in this short course of leadership habit-building programs to become exceptional people-centric leaders, participants will be able to:

  • Establish the 5 conditions to help people come together as a team and to enable them to work together successfully.
  • Motivate and engage employees to do their best thinking and have the best ideas by proactively influencing their intrinsic motivation.
  • Foster deeper employee engagement by using our structured best-practice framework for how to implement one-on-ones to strengthen their relationships with their employees.
  • Use a step by step process to formulate feedback that proactively avoids people from becoming defensive and instead proactively turns feedback into a learning experience.
  • Use their bottom-up understanding of what drives organizational culture to further develop their team’s or organization’s desired culture so that it encourages people to act in a way that contributes most positively to their team’s or organization’s goal.

Effective Everyday Leadership

Challenges Addressed By This Course Program:​

Being an effective leader is more complex than most people anticipate. Modern-day employees don’t just do what they are told. To earn their followership, managers and leaders must lead by example, know how to communicate clearly and persuasively, and proactively cultivate their leadership presence to ensure others believe in their ability to lead effectively.

Moreover, tasked with the responsibilities to achieve results through others, they need to carefully balance when to manage and when to lead, know how to effectively delegate to maximize their ability to get stuff done and use skillful questions to engage their people in solving complex problems. It’s a lot and no one is born with all of those competencies completely developed and ready for use.

What Participants Learn In This Short Course Program:

By participating in this short course of leadership habit-building programs to improve their ability to lead effectively every day, participants will be able to:

  • Be an intentional leader who consciously chooses how he or she shows up as a leader, each day, and under all circumstances, because they know that everything they do, -say, and emote impacts the actions of their employees and hence their leadership effectiveness.
  • Proactively strengthen their leadership presence to support their ability to lead.
  • Communicate clearly and persuasively by making their messages more clear, inspiring, and memorable for their audience, whether that is a direct report, a peer, a superior or an external party.
  • Overcome their inclination to still do too much themselves and instead boost their ability to deliver results by embracing our step-by-step process to delegate effectively
  • Use skillful questions to actively involve their people’s expertise and solicit their best thinking to determine how to achieve the organization’s goal.
  • Rebalance their time between management & leadership in such a way they don’t over-manage and under-lead

Lead In A Hybrid World

Challenges Addressed By This Course Program:​
In the new world of work, whether your organization has gone fully remote or is operating a hybrid model, more is required from leaders to achieve results. Leaders need to double down on clear communication, maintain team cohesion and individual employee engagement, foster collaboration, balance employees’ increased autonomy with accountability, and create new processes to ensure coordination and alignment of work between distributed team members. These skills were important before. Now they are vital.

What Participants Learn In This Short Course Program:

By participating in this short course of leadership habit-building programs to improve their ability to lead in a hybrid world, participants will be able to:

  • Significantly increase the effectiveness of their everyday leadership communications.
  • Help themselves and their team to establish healthy, long-term, productive time management habits to handle their increased autonomy and flexibility to get their work done.

Performance & Well-Being

Challenges Addressed By This Course Program:​

Leaders are a bit like elite athletes: Every day they need to be on their A-game to effectively handle whatever comes their way. But while elite athletes carefully nurture and prepare their bodies and minds to achieve peak performance, many business leaders wrongly believe that spending long hours at the office, getting by on little sleep, and being always “on” is the path to success. Yet, in sacrificing their well-being, they actually actively undermine their leadership effectiveness as they don’t have the physical, mental and emotional energy to be on their A-game. Moreover, leaders need to keep learning and developing themselves to perform effectively as they move up the ladder and face new business challenges over time. And lastly, leadership involves risk, and as a result, failures big and small are part of any leadership career. So, any good leader worth his or her salt needs to condition themselves to expect failure, learn how to handle it when it happens, and effectively rebound from it. In short, becoming and remaining a successful leader is an endurance sport that requires a lifelong dedication to doing what’s needed to optimize one’s performance.

What Participants Learn In This Short Course Program:

By participating in this short course of leadership habit-building programs to improve their well-being & ability to perform consistently as a leader, participants will be able to:

  • Optimize their physical fitness, emotional control, mental acuity,and drive to enable their peak performance as a leader.
  • Handle big and small failures and seek to understand them, so they don’t repeat them.
  • Embrace radical self-knowledge to recognize shortcomings in their leadership abilities and commit to ongoing self-development to keep evolving as required.
