About This Workshop
Are you tired of hearing that most projects fail because of poor communication? The frustration you feel is probably because you instinctively understand the following:
- Projects don’t fail; they don’t have a heartbeat or a social security number. People fail.
- Communication is simply the vehicle we use to lead.
- Blaming failure on communication is the greatest obstacle to addressing the lack of leadership skills that lead to undesirable outcomes.
If we were to simplify the success criteria for a leader, it would be "they enable their team to get sh*t done that creates value for their organization."
When organizations focus on improving communication, they generally add processes and guidelines that increase the workload on teams that are already struggling to deliver the desired results. But it’s easier to use communication as the scapegoat than it is to admit they "suck at leadership!"
The solution is to focus on developing the leadership skills of each of their team members regardless of their title. The basic foundation of an agile organization, an agile mindset and teamwork is that "everyone is a leader." Increasing the Leadership Quotient (LQ) in an organization, and getting "lean" with process will lead to more successful projects and desired outcomes.
- Understand and practice the psychology of getting great results.
- Identify the difference between a boss and a leader.
- Guide teams with “communicate to lead” skills.
- Empower ownership of the outcomes by taking responsibility for what is heard.
- Gain techniques needed to stop holding people accountable by helping team members stay accountable.
- Grow your skills and confidence to effectively lead up.
- Download a suite of 120VC tools, templates, and frameworks.
- Earn up to 6 PDU’s

A wonderful virtual presentation, with lots of practical takeaways on "Servant Leadership". Jason kept the participants engaged through out. Highly recommended course!!!
Servant Leadership that #GSD was an amazing course! I definitely recommend to new and tenured leaders. Definitely many takeaways and a-ha moments! Jason is a great speaker and I truly enjoyed the course...
I got a lot of takeaways in this class!! The energy that Jason has is contagious and kept the group engaged, time went by fast. I highly recommend this class to add good new practices to your leadership toolbox.
I took this class after reading Jason's bio in a PMI email. Jason makes the material fun to learn and the session is full of small take aways that people can start to use immediately in their work or life situations. It's a refreshing look at how to lead by example, especially in the new world where you might not have direct authority but also may be completely virtual. I would recommend this session to not only current and future leaders but anyone that's just looking at how to make the workplace a better environment. 5 Stars!!!
This was an awesome training session!
Jason communicates some simple, key leadership principles and then backs them up with actionable techniques that can be put to use right away. His lesson on 'Active Listening' and orienting questions about the outcome instead of the 'how' was one I will use right away.
As a consequence of taking this course I have signed up for the companion course, 'The Art of Leading a Team that GSD'.
Finally, my favorite takeaway that I work to implement every day: 'When I say "Yes I will" I open my calendar and block some time'.
Jason Scott, you have changed how I will lead, for the better!
Wonderful presentation, on "Servant Leadership". Definitely a "stay awake" presentation. I notice some similarities between the 120VC approach and Edward Deming’s 14 points on quality management. Very good I might add.
Very good material covered in this talk, also the speaker is very capable of navigating you through the information, highly recommended!!
Instead, it inspires the leader in all of us. How we can be better humans and better leaders and Get Stuff Done in our workplace and our lives. The course is lively, entertaining and includes working sessions with your classmates - and real life strategies to put into action as a Servant Leader. I look forward to implementing these ideas to make my job easier and to help all my co-workers. This class provides a playbook on leadership.
