Authentic Leadership Academy
Leadership is not something you do. It's something you develop. For each level of responsibility you take on, there's a new level of leadership you need to master. This is a simple principle that is difficult to practice. You may know that you need to develop your level of leadership skills, and you may want to make it happen. But with all the demands on your time and energy, it can be extraordinarily difficult to do so.
The ALA is a highly effective, time efficient system for upgrading your leadership, on the job and in real time. In 6 hours a month plus two retreats, over the course of a year you can develop the skills you need to play at the next level of your game, so you can experience success in your business and freedom in your life.
You Are a Leader
You’re smart, you’re accomplished, and you care deeply about your work, your family, and the people in your life. You’ve always known how to reach for that next level, and you’re not willing to settle for less than what you know is possible.
So What's the Problem?
Well, being you is not easy. You’re the one who is supposed to have all the answers, but instead you find yourself constantly burdened by tough questions that don’t seem to have straightforward answers:
- How can I be less stressed and more productive?
- How can I hold people accountable in positive ways?
- How can I create greater alignment among my team?
- How can I resolve emotionally charged conflicts?
- How can I motivate myself and others in more effective ways?
- How can I support others to grow and develop?
Pushing Harder Doesn't Work
These questions often involve values that seem like they are in direct conflict with one another, so the harder you push, the worse things seem to get. And the stress is starting to take its toll on you, your team, your family, and the rest of your life. The more you dig into the day-to-day challenges, the more it can seem like they’re connected to a much bigger problem.
What’s Going On?
You’re not wrong. It’s just that the bigger the problem, the deeper the solution needs to be. And the tools you’re used to using probably aren’t working. Traditionally, most leadership training has focused on two areas: thoughts and behaviors, focusing on best practices for what good leaders do, and how they think. The problem is that most of the real challenges you will face as a leader, either in yourself or in others, have deeper roots and can’t just be solved at this level. That’s where we come in.

Meet Your Instructors
Both instructors have been pioneers in the field of Authentic Leadership and Conscious Business for a combined 30 years of experience and dedication to their craft.
Brian Whetten, Ph.D.
By the age of 30, Brian had earned a Berkeley Ph.D. in computer science, raised $20 million for two Silicon Valley startups, been part of a $400 million IPO – and burned out twice. After an emotional and spiritual crisis, he left his career to pursue six years of full-time personal growth work, including earning a M.A. in Spiritual Psychology from the University of Santa Monica. Brian is the author of the #1 International Amazon Best Seller, Yes Yes Hell No!, and he writes a regular column for the Huffington Post. With diverse appearances ranging from NBC to MIT, he is considered one of the foremost experts in the fields of authentic leadership and conscious business.
Nicole Whetten, M.A.
As an intuitive, Nicole has an uncanny ability to understand people, often deeper than they understand themselves. She is able to deeply connect with people’s gifts, blocks, path and purpose. She couples this with a Masters Degree in Spiritual Psychology and over twelve years of experience as a master coach and facilitator. Nicole has worked with and held space for a wide range of leaders, including studio heads, star athletes, senior executives and prominent entrepreneurs.
I'm in awe, reflecting back over the past months of working with Brian. He brings together a remarkably rich set of skills as a coach. Our work together has been very powerful, allowing me to see clearly to the core of business issues and interpersonal dynamics ... and then to develop the tools and know-how to effectively manage even the most challenging situations.
Yes Yes Hell No! is one of the most simple and powerful technologies I’ve ever seen, from one of the great coaches and leaders in the field.
500 Million Copy Best Selling Author
Without the work we did with Core Coaching, our company probably would have gone bankrupt. Instead, we’re thriving, I can’t believe how much I’ve grown as a leader and I'm loving my life.
After investing millions on training programs for our teams, we thought we knew how to train leaders. But from the very first week of our work together, Dr. Whetten took our leadership development programs to an entirely new level.
Brian Whetten is by far the best that I’ve ever seen in the area of selling. I’ve never been impacted, especially in the realm of sales, by a speech in this way.
I spent years on my own, trying to figure out how to ‘do’ leadership. Working with Nicole changed that for me forever. She truly ‘gets’ me - better than almost anyone I’ve ever met. Thanks to her, I’m now much more effective and powerful as a leader – and much less stressed.
