Welcome to the Business Leadership Academy. As a part of our ongoing effort at helping you become a highly effective business leader, we launched the academy this week.
The academy is a vehicle for ambitious professionals to become highly successful business leaders. I designed it based on what I have seen working with thousands of professionals across the world.
As you know, I have taught, trained, coached and advised thousands of business leaders and aspiring business leaders over the last twenty years. I have seen how managers become high impact professionals. I have also seen why many fail to make the impact they sincerely desire. The academy helps me bring all those learnings to you.

Academy This Week
Each week, we will share powerful new resources for our academy members. In Academy This Week, you will be able to see the resources we share with the members.
This week, we focused on two areas:
When you join the academy, we help you master seven skills that you unquestionably need to become a successful business leader. Without these skills, you will find it hard to sustain long-term success. I detailed these seven skills in my latest book. You can download the book for FREE here.
Starter Pack I is the first course every academy member takes. It gives you a taste of all seven skills and teaches you the kind of results you can produce when you master these skills.
This week, we shared the reflection workbook to help you better learn the ‘Starter Pack I’ course. These questions and prompts will help you think deeply about the seven skills and your skill gaps you want to fill.
Innovation Opportunities from Technology Evolution
As the technology in your industry evolves, it creates significant opportunities and challenges for you. To understand them, you need a good understanding of the technology life cycle, dominant design, and innovation types.
This training video helps you understand a critical era in the industry evolution. It also explains who stands to benefit from the emergence of a dominant design and who stands to lose from it.
As the technology evolves in an industry, the nature of innovation changes. Initially, firms focus on product innovation but later on they invest in process innovation. This video shows you how this leads to a change in the type of opportunity in the industry.
These prompts ask you to reflect on your own business and industry. The same questions also make you consider opportunities in your role that can help you make a higher impact using the above knowledge.
