IEP-Leadership Course

IEP-LEAD: An IEP Virtual Leadership Program

Our foundational IEP Leadership Course. See below to bring this program into your organization.


IEP-Lead is our core leadership training program (currently delivered virtually) to give your people the experience of IEP (Intentional Energetic Presence® and the IEP Method®) in a way that will deepen their ability to navigate the challenges of today, lead proactively, take ownership for the way they show up (and create culture), and design an IEP practice that will support them at work and at home.

Core focus areas of this course include:

  • building an IEP practice
  • managing, navigating, and preventing burnout
  • building resiliency and “immunity” to toxicity and “busy-ness”
  • up-leveling self-leadership and accountability
  • identifying and clearing relationship dynamics
  • navigating conflict and co-designing healthy relationships
  • giving productive feedback,
  • activating authentic virtual and in-person presence…

This workshop has been designed to give you all the best of the IEP Fundamentals as well as experience the core leadership skills we’ve found most valuable in our work with organizations, business leaders, and humans who want to have more impact and build a more collaborative culture. This program can be delivered via a group workshop for your people or in a more intimate Executive Impact Lab/Retreat.

This program is generally taught over 3 days (3.5-hour sessions each day, or as co-designed if you are sponsoring a session privately in your organization) with a small group of people to ensure intimacy and personalized attention in the session. 

In addition to the session, participants are provided with: 

  • pre-work and access to our Virtual Presence & Meeting IEP Program before the session to support in intention setting and preparation, 
  • post-work and the 7-Week IEP Beat after the session to support a weekly drumbeat of intention setting and integration of the IEP-LEAD concepts,
  • an optional follow up live virtual session a month later for group Q&A, reuniting, and digging into anything else needed,

While the IEP Fundamentals (IEP-V) gives you the experience and integration of the core methodology, IEP-LEAD builds on the fundamentals with tangible, immediately-applicable skills to use as you strengthen your leadership and presence, create more space in your life, up-level your ability to connect, influence, build rapport, create safety, navigate conflict, and create intentional impact with those you love and lead.  The agenda for our time together is below…

  4. Learn the IEP Relational Design Model and how to set yourself (and your team, colleague, friend, spouse, partner) up for success proactively and before relationships get tricky
  5. Review the IEP Culture Change List and assess where your team, relationship, or organization can move forward next with your NEW information
  6. An additional framework, tool, or principle determined by Anese by the themes and needs of the group
  7. Create the final part of your IEP action plan and practice. (Q4 + Intentional Impact + Culture)

This session is highly experiential and interactive, it is confidential, and it will arm you with new tools, practices, and ways of being to support your leadership, impact, and results today. (Note: If you would like to participate in a less intensive session, and only want the fundamentals of IEP (vs. the 3rd day and skills focus), please consider IEP Fundamentals (IEP-V).)

This session is currently led by Anese (with members of our team).
