Do it because it is the right thing to do.

120V's TLP is full of simple truths about leadership and project management that are either typically forgotten or go against the grain at many companies. One of our cohort's running themes was "do it because it is the right thing to do." When I started putting the lessons from the TLP into practice, even though my employer did not require them, I began to stand out as someone who knew how to get the right things done.

Upcoming TLP

The online Transformational Leadership Training from the experts in #GSD.

Today’s complex and changing world requires a new kind of leader who excels at the seven change disciples, puts their stakeholders first, and empowers teams to get sh*t done (GSD).  We call them Transformational Leaders. 

The TLP is an online certification course designed to accelerate Project, Product, and Organizational Change Managers in their journey to become transformative leaders. 

The program is designed for anyone who leads a team in today’s complicated and rapidly changing world.   The foundational course incorporates the latest thinking in Leadership curated from hundreds of books, articles, theoretical frameworks, and best practices in both the leadership and the project execution communities today.

What PEOPLE ARE SAYING

Get PDU's that GSD

"I've been a project manager for 20+ years, and this is the best course I've ever been through for thoughtful, practical, and respectful applications of knowledge and skills that this discipline requires to be successful."

– Maria Page

Online Transformational Leadership Program (TLP)

"Jason Scott is an excellent teacher and has project managed at the highest levels of corporate America. This course is a masterclass in understanding how to succeed in those environments and it's loaded with excellent readings, videos, and other materials that you will refer back to (and can use to impress your colleagues) for the rest of your career."

– James Burk

Online Transformational Leadership Program (TLP)

"By the end of this course, I developed a new confidence in my ability to lead. I finally found the people who care about others as human beings and not just as potential profits and losses. The great twist here is that leading in this way creates incredibly functional, productive teams and the best outcomes for all stakeholders. Being able to sleep at night feeling good about my interactions with others AND being a successful Project Leader? I’ll take it! I am 100% sold on the 120VC way."

– Jenny Thomas

WHAT'S THE INVESTMENT

Imagine if you were an early investor in Apple or Zoom where you’d be today.  Where could you be today?  How much would you pay for that knowledge?

Ted Talks that Walk the Walk

As a more junior Creative Project Manager working at a startup, there were a lot of opportunities to learn new skills at my company but no concrete means of learning how to be a great leader. Being held responsible for other team members during the onset of remote working, and the inevitable truth that it would be here to stay, assured asynchronous working styles would remain a necessary adaptation of daily professional life. I was skeptical the class would be a series of theoretical nonsense, but was ecstatic to find that the foundations of all the lessons were actual practices upheld by 120vc, married to principles and lectures from some of today’s most critically-acclaimed leaders. Furthermore, these practices are applicable to a transferable methodology that will assure the project keeps moving forward! I’ve already recommended TLP to some of my peers, and I'll keep doing so.

Inspiration and Fresh Ideas

I am a Sr. leader of an organization and leading the third PMO of my career. I like to think of myself as being an effective leader that has established PMO's that bring value to the organizations I've been in. Joining this class, however, inspired me to take a new look at myself, my skills and ways that I can improve. I haven't been this challenged in quite a while and my team has noticed the changes in me. I also had some stubborn ideas about process challenged in this class which have led to some very positive changes in our PMO methodology. I chose this class because it sounded interesting and I needed PDU's for my PMP certification. Instead I found relationships, inpspiration, and an organization I know I will stay connected with and learn from for quite some time. Thanks Jason!
