Seasons Leadership

No matter what level or role, you can become more than you are today. And the world needs you – when you fulfill your unique purpose, you strengthen the organizations and communities in which you live and work.

Our vision to transform the world one leader at time drives us to reach individuals at all levels of their personal leadership journey. You’ve experienced plenty examples of mediocre or bad leadership. Join us in making positive leadership the norm rather than the exception. Together, we can achieve our mission to amplify and accelerate leadership excellence, responsibility and growth worldwide.

Seasons Leadership’s four acorns: leading self, leading others, leading business and leading community are all critical elements in wholistic leadership development. Our approach is rooted in our personal experience, best practices like the world-recognized Baldrige framework, intuition and expertise from many years of successfully leading teams and coaching individuals.

Seasons of leadership development

The cycles of growth, renewal and transformation experienced in the natural seasons are a roadmap for the cycles we all experience in our leadership journey. At Seasons Leadership we structure our course material, resources and tools through this metaphor to give leaders support and insight to achieve more during these cycles.

 

Spring/Awaken: Growth begins – perhaps with a new role or purpose. We help you gain awareness of yourself as a leader so you can be guided and energized by your own unique values to design the form your leadership vision will take.

Summer/Cultivate: Real growth is occurring at a rapid pace – you are in the flow with your role or purpose. We help you cultivate ideas that will yield the results you want. This clarity of vision provides the energy to make it all happen.

Fall/Integrate: You harvest the results of your work. We help you integrate all you have learned into the new version of you. As you demonstrate new skills and capabilities that change how you show up every day now is the time to celebrate your success.

Winter/Transform: You start the process of rest and evaluation. We help you transform through reflection on what has worked and what needs to be adapted or cleared out to be an even stronger version of you living more authentically and intentionally.

values-based leadership

Seasons Leadership Values: Leadership, Love, Integrity, Excellence, Creativity, Contribution, Curiosity, Balance, Independence, and Connection.

At Seasons Leadership, we believe in and demonstrate values-based leadership. A leader who is working in congruence and alignment with their core values has a firm foundation on which to build and reach new heights. There is no set formula of values that leads to success. Instead, it is through discovering and honoring your unique values that you gain clarity around the path forward and feel empowered to take positive action as a leader.

Learn from successful, seasoned leaders

Debbie Collard and Susan Ireland are both seasoned leaders who passionately believe in the importance of leadership excellence- core competencies, nationally recognized frameworks and tools because they have personally put them into practice with stellar results – leading teams with a significant impact on the world. Both leaders spent 30 years in aviation succeeding in large-scale systems integration – including design, manufacture, regulations and market influences - that combine to create a product that allows people to travel in comfort and safety around the globe.

This proving ground provided many opportunities for perspective and leadership growth. Susan and Debbie benefitted from formal leadership training offered at a company-level based on their individual levels within the organization. Because of how much they gained from these experiences they are motivated to offer leadership training and resources to all leaders –regardless of level.

Instead of waiting for a company to identify talent in you – you can realize the desire to lead within yourself - we are all leaders to someone- and take the personal responsibility to get the training and support you need to help your teams/future teams succeed.

What Seasoned Leaders are saying about us:

Stefani Johnson

Stefani Johnson

Production Coordinator, Oddbot Animation, 2020 Seasons Leadership Program participant

“At 28 years old and fleeing a very negative workplace, "leader" was definitely not how I felt about myself. However, I will be thanking the "past me" for the rest of my life for taking the leap to join the Seasons Leadership Program. Two inspiring female coaches not only provided me with the insight I needed to gain a new perspective of myself and my experiences, but they also helped me form a plan to "lead" my own life. That's right, even with no one seeing me as a leader, I learned something invaluable: I am always the leader of my own story. With the tools I gained from Debbie and Susan, and the loving and safe community of females from this past year in Seasons, I feel I can finally work towards owning and fully living my leadership, and possibly expanding it outside myself. Despite 2020 being a horrible year with many challenges globally, I've had one of my best years yet. I strongly encourage others to truly invest in the course. I promise you'll see it's actually fun to grow yourself. I'm tempted to take the course all over again.”

Tanya Meronk

Tanya Meronk

Co-Founder & Head Techretary, 2020 Seasons Leadership Program participant

“Debbie and Susan rock! They have fundamentally changed the way I see myself as a leader.  I’m more confident and feel prepared with the tools they shared. Plus, I have a community to tap into when times get tough.”

Lisa Faber

Lisa Faber

Owner, The Collage Salon, 2020 & 2021 Seasons Leadership Program participant

“When I first signed up for Seasons Leadership I wasn’t sure what to expect – a self-help group? This was far from that. Not only did Susan and Debbie give me a higher sense of what it means to be a leader, but they also worked with me right where I was and gave me applicable strategies to apply right away. The coaching sessions alone are worth it!”

Annie Stocker

Annie Stocker

Owner, Two Dog Yoga, 2020 Seasons Leadership Program participant

“Seasons Leadership Program has been an invaluable touchstone in an unwieldy year: 2020.  With Susan and Debbie’s steady guidance, I am growing my confidence, clarity and conviction to manifest my vision for my business. The presentations, guest visitors, and especially the coaching helped me to hone in on the ways I can be a more effective and efficient leader. I would highly recommend this program to anyone wanting to grow themselves and their business!”

Theresa Dugan

Theresa Dugan

Sr. Program Manager, Tech Industry, 2020 Seasons Leadership Program participant

“I was looking for a way to develop my skills as a leader so I could find my next big job and have more fulfillment. Seasons Leadership helped me to assess my best leadership qualities and provided me with practical business solutions that I applied immediately at work. The year-long program built my confidence through coaching and connected me with a network of women who are smart, inspiring, and looking for the same things in life and work.”

Leadership & Principles

Do you know what your values are? Do you have an explicit set of operating principles for your team or organization? If not, it is never too late to get started!

Relationship Matrix

Even if nurturing relationships is easy for you, to successfully network, one helpful practice is to create a “Relationship Matrix.” The matrix is a list of people that you want to build and nurture a relationship in business with.

Inspiration for the Next Season: RESOLVE

I find that the end of each quarter is a good time to take stock of how I am doing on my resolutions. To re-inspire myself, I re-read my sister-in-law’s new year’s letter that I keep on my desk because I find it so motivating. Kristine Wilson sent this letter to her community to help inspire others to meet their goals. I share, with her permission, with our community to inspire you.
