The Research Behind Leadership & Management

January 1 – April 30, 2019

In this self-paced program, we’ll explore the research on:

  • What people need from work in order to be healthy
  • How to more effectively lead so that people can make their best contributions

Some of our topics

  • Autonomy
  • Trust
  • Psychological Safety
  • Motivation
  • Inclusivity
  • Engagement
  • Reward structures
  • Meaningful Measurement
  • Implications for Leaders


Five Live Calls (which will be recorded)

This program can transform your view of leadership if you:

  • believe research can inform practice
  • are open to challenging conventional thinking
  • are ready to invest time & energy in reading & discussion
  • want insight into your own working life
  • share responsibility for the health of your group (e.g., leadership, HR, OD, climate committee, wellness program, quality)
  • are seeking ideas for an organization change initiative

This program will feel frustrating if you:

  • are seeking a simplified checklist
  • dislike reading articles & books written by researchers (I get it – they can be dense!)
  • are focused on fighting fires and don’t currently have the time or energy for fire prevention
  • believe it’s someone else’s job to learn this material and put it to use

The fee is $550 per person.

If you choose to buy your own books, the fee is $500.  (Buying your own books also allows you to choose the format you prefer!)

Interested in signing up a group of folks from your organization? Read more about how this course can be a powerful learning experience for groups.

Contact Katherine directly so she can help streamline the registration process for groups of 5 or more.

The program materials are available until April 30.  Registration stays open until April 1.  Even if you join on April 1, you still have access to the entire program for a month, and will have the opportunity to participate in Be Aware at a discounted alumni rate in the future.

Alumni, come on back!  These important ideas are worth revisiting and the longer they stay alive in your mind and organization, the more likely change will take root!  If you’re an alumnus of Be Aware online, send me a note and I’ll send you a link to sign up at the alumni rate.

Registration is open.  I hope you’ll join in!
