Effectiveness can be learned.

The job of a leader is to “effect” and to “execute”.

As Peter Drucker said, “Brilliant people are often strikingly ineffective; they fail to realize that the brilliant insight is not by itself an achievement." This Mini-Course will guide you through Eight Practices for Becoming a More Effective Leader.

Jim Piper | Founder of Lead Today

Jim Piper has been coaching high-performance leaders for over 20 years. In this mini-coaching course, he provides eight short sessions on how to get on top of the right things while driving and sustaining performance. These eight short sessions cover eight practices that are simply bedrock requirements for any leader who desires to be effective. This coaching best fits the business executive, the entrepreneur, business owner, and the mid-level leader who knows what “got you here won’t get you there”. Many leaders never reach their potential because they stop learning. Jim’s approach is personable. He gets it. He knows what you are up against. He will not waste your time with “new” and “cool”. Instead, he respects you and will help you acquire the skills you need to advance your cause. It may not be easy but if you fully engage, you will leave bad habits and wasted energy behind. You will learn how to work on your business instead of being overwhelmed, insecure, and confused by all the demands and lack of results. If you were to hire Jim for eight face-to-face coaching sessions, it would cost you almost $6,000. Technology allows us to bring you the same proven skills for $350.

I have always loved personal development but I never understood how to actually master myself until I started my coaching with Lead Today. As a young woman, I’ve been placed in several different positions of leadership. Lead Today has taught me how to take care of my people by understanding the strengths they possess. I have also learned why I do things the way I do, and why I think the way I think. This has helped me delegate in the workplace but I’ve also been able to help entrepreneurs overcome obstacles by understanding their temperaments. Lead Today has also given me vision for the future along with the tools I need and has equipped me to understand human behavior. I am now learning to understand that in business or in the workplace, all of our different temperaments are needed and that they make up the organizations we participate in. This has allowed me to work from my strengths while allowing others to do so as well.


My Lead Today experience has helped me over the past 10 years learn more about myself than any other Leadership class I have taken. It has helped me learn to lead out of my strengths rather than weaknesses. I’m grateful for the mentorship.


Jim and his team have an innate ability to accelerate the professional development of leaders. He brings new and innovative ideas to organizations fostering organizational learning. His character distinguishes Jim as he operates from a set of high values and ethics, emotional intelligence while creating feelings of succeeding together.


Jim is a friend to leaders. His heart beats to help leaders grow and change their world. He has the passion, the tools and the expertise to help leaders lead more effectively. I highly recommend him and Lead Today to anyone with the passion to be a greater influence in the world they lead.

Lead Today has great insight into the challenges faced by leaders in the corporate world and a desire to come alongside them and encourage them in their role as a leader. They have an uncanny ability to coach, guide and encourage leaders to truly lead by character in the role given to them. They bring several nuggets that leaders can easily grasp onto and put into practice. I have worked with them more than once and would highly recommend them.
