Have a question about the Freedom-Centered Leader course?
We have answers! 

How is the Freedom-Centered Leader course different from other leadership courses?

Most leadership training comes in the form of 1-2 day workshops, keynotes, conferences, books, and traditional courses. However, research shows that we only retain about 10 percent of what we learn through a traditional lecture format and there is no built-in accountability system for actually implementing what you learn through these methods. There is also no community to support you along the way.

What's different about the Freedom-Centered Leader course is not only our proven curriculum that teaches you how to lead with freedom rather than fear and control but also how we deliver the course.  After many years of trial and error, we discovered the number one way to produce real leadership transformation and it's through gamified learning, world-class one-on-coaching, peer-to-peer learning, and a supportive global community. Anything less is a waste of time and money and won't produce lasting results.

Who is the Freedom-Centered Leader course for?

The Freedom-Centered Leader course is for our members' top leaders and their high potential leaders who want to learn the proven leadership skills for how to lead themselves and others with freedom and accountability rather than fear and control. They must be coachable and open to transformational growth to be accepted into the course. 

Member organizations wishing to have their employees trained in Freedom-Centered Leadership should schedule a call with us to talk about who would be the right fit for the course. 

Who is not the right fit for the course?

Individuals who are not open to growth, are not coachable, and who do not want to take extreme ownership of their success are not the right fit for this course. 

When does the next course start?

The Freedom-Centered Leader Foundations course starts on the first day of each month.

Who developed the concept of Freedom-Centered Leadership?

Traci Fenton, Founder and CEO of WorldBlu, developed the concept of Freedom-Centered Leadership™ based on over 25 years of research in leadership and work with top leaders globally. The Freedom-Centered Leader course was developed by Traci with input from top leaders, educational experts, coaches, and our clients. 

How long is the course?

The Freedom-Centered Leader Foundations course is 12 weeks long. After the Foundations course is completed, leaders may choose to earn more leadership badges. They have the option of continuing in our monthly Accelerator program, or they can sign up for our year-long Freedom-Centered Leader certification program. To become a WorldBlu certified Freedom-Centered Leader, one must earn a minimum of 50 out of 100 badges.

What is the time commitment for the course?

The Freedom-Centered Leader course is designed for busy leaders around the world who are managing active work and personal lives.

Because the course is online and we do our coaching calls over the phone, you don't have to waste time or money out of the office or on an airplane for this course!

We tell participants to allocate 5-7 hours a week for the course. The amount of time does vary depending on which badges you select. Some badges take a shorter amount of time, others, which may involve reading a book, for example, take longer. 

Overall, participants tell us that that workload is doable and not overwhelming – and a lot of fun!

I'm so overwhelmed with work, do I really have time to do this?

One of the most common excuses we hear from top leaders is that they don't think they have the time to do the Freedom-Centered Leader course. They are overwhelmed, burned-out, and don't think they can add even one more thing to their plate. 

The problem is if you don't do the course -- what happens? Do you stay stuck in the same old patterns that got you into this pit, never living your fullest potential? How will you ever breakout and breakthrough to the next level without new tools, a new mindset, and a coach to support you along the way?

The Freedom-Centered Leader course is not designed to overwhelm you; it's designed to teach you how to set healthy boundaries, delegate, and manage your time and energy better to help lift things that are on your plate OFF so you can reclaim your life and find the joy in your work again. 

We've had countless leaders go through this course and within weeks tell us how much better they feel emotionally, spiritually, and physically, how they now have more time with family and friends, and how they now have the tools to lead themselves and others with freedom rather than fear. And don't you think you'd have the time for that

What exactly are “badges?”

Research shows that gamified learning is the most effective way to absorb and retain learning for transformational results. The Freedom-Centered Leader course delivers gamified learning through 100 high-impact badges (aka: learning modules) in the course. 

Our 12-week course requires participants to earn 12 badges, two of which are required.

The leader and their coach will work together to select the 10 other badges the leader will earn throughout the course, customized to their unique leadership skill needs and goals.
