What Leaders Say

"If I had to choose between a conference or an Elise Mitchell leadership experience, I would choose hers each time. The hands-on training and development I received from Elise was a transformative investment that will last over the course of my leadership journey."  



“Elise’s energy and enthusiasm are contagious. She conveys her tremendous insights and knowledge with a vitality that makes you hang on every word, every concept, every idea that she shares. I use her teachings now and will throughout my career.”  



"Elise's leadership training helped me through a difficult time. She gave me a flood of encouragement and knowledge on how to tackle tough problems such as communicating challenging messages and managing work-life balance. She provided tools and techniques like the five steps for effective delegation and cognitive optimization. Elise gave me confidence in who I am as a leader and who I can become."  



"Elise Mitchell's experience, coupled with a deep understanding of the science of leadership, make her a superb teacher. You will leave with action steps for upping your own game."  



Why You Should Do This

Gaining clarity can transform your life. Having a strong sense of your purpose, passion and goals can help you find new joy and meaning in leadership.  

 This experience is for leaders who want to go from:  

Unfocused and stretched  

Reacting and responding  

Obsessed and driven  

Fearful and uncertain  

Burned out  

Work/life conflict  

To leaders who want to achieve:

Clarity and direction  

Initiation and drive  

Being fully present and engaged  

Confidence and courage  

Energy and passion  

A healthier blending of work/life  


Who Should Attend?

“Leading at the Next Level” is open to anyone. You don’t have to be a certain age, experience level, or from a certain industry. But it’s not for everyone. It’s designed for high-performing leaders who want to become all the leader they can be.  

This unique leadership experience is ideal for you if you want to:

Invest in yourself so you can lead at the next level  

Close your gaps and improve your skills  

Lead a team through difficult change  

Increase your impact as a leader  

Better manage stress and pressure – and help others do the same Learn more about your leadership potential  

Avoid burn-out, renew and recharge  

Overcome a leadership challenge you’re facing  

Make a job change and equip yourself for the road ahead  

Find greater clarity about your leadership purpose  

How Is This Different from Other Leadership Experiences?

Most leadership experiences are either inspiring or practical. “Leading at the Next Level” is both. Inspiring – Reflect on who you are as a leader and clarify what you want for your next and ultimate leadership destinations.  

Practical – Learn the skills you need to succeed and how you can improve. Set short-term and long-term goals. Develop a 90-day action plan to jumpstart 2019.  

The result? Transformational. Once you’re clear about your leadership purpose, path and potential, you’ll never be the same again.
