FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How can Evil Genius Leadership help my business?
The biggest obstacle to growing a business is that executives and managers try to do everything themselves. Building a team that embraces strong leadership, accountability, and clear communication is essential for a business to achieve its full potential. For most organizations, this doesn’t happen on its own. Leaders must commit to establishing a strong leadership culture and developing team members dedicated to the company's success. Our corporate training workshops show you how to create this culture and build strategic thinking, teamwork, and accountability on your team from the C-suite right on down to the front lines.
My business is small. Why is leadership development important to me?
Congratulations on starting your business! When your business is small is the perfect time to start developing the leadership culture on your team. Your very first few hires will set the tone for new employees as your business grows, so investing in your team now will ensure you have a team that is looking out for the best interest of the organization in the future. Our corporate training workshops are customizable to meet the needs of your small business, or our executive coaching program can help you as a business owner develop the leadership skills you need to build the team you want and deserve.
I’m a solopreneur. Can you still help me?
Yes! While our corporate training workshops are incredibly valuable to entrepreneurs who are already building your team, the lessons and skills in those workshops can be learned through one-on-one executive coaching with you. If you’re not ready for coaching yet, we offer digital courses that you can accomplish solo at your own pace that still cover the same material. If you are just getting started or even thinking about starting a business, our short e-books would be very helpful to you as well.
I’m not in Las Vegas. Do I need to bring my team to you?
No! We would love to have you visit us in Vegas, but we are happy to bring our corporate training workshops to your facility or another location of you choose. Our workshops can be done remotely but are most effective as an in=person experience. One-on-one coaching is effective and easy over video conferencing platforms if that’s what works best for you.
How long are your workshops?
Our workshops are all customizable based on your needs and budget, but most of our content is designed to be delivered in a 3–4-hour workshop or a full day to maximize the impact and results for your team. If you would like to spread out the content over multiple, shorter sessions we can accommodate that as well.
Why is it important to set a solid culture of leadership in my company?
To remain successful in a competitive environment, businesses must grow and adapt to rapidly changing conditions. Even the best business owners can’t do this all on their own. Staying focused on the big picture is the biggest challenge most entrepreneurs face as their company grows. It’s impossible to focus on the future if you’re down in the weeds of what your employees are doing. Freeing yourself up to think and act strategically requires delegating to a team of managers and employees that you can trust to act in the best interest of your company. To do this successfully your team needs to have key leadership skills and the confidence to use them for the good of the organization.
What are the most important leadership skills my managers should have?
There’s no comprehensive list of every leadership skill for every organization, but at a minimum you want your company leaders to have strong communication, negotiation, goal setting, delegation, planning and execution skills. More senior managers should also be well versed in managing conflict, critical thinking and strategic planning as well as promoting culture throughout the organization.
What is your training based on?
I’ve spent 30 years learning the best way to build future leaders from my time serving as an officer in the United States Air Force, working in the Las Vegas startup community, and as an advocate building our veterans entrepreneur community. As the business world changes we learn and adapt to give you and your team the most current lessons to bring the best leadership development and training to your company.
What about training for remote teams?
Technology is rapidly advancing every day and leaders need to adapt to gain a competitive advantage through tech. If you have a remote team, or are thinking about going remote, we can adapt our programs to give them the best training through all available technology. Whether that is through self-paced courses or doing a group session over a video conference we are applying the latest technology to supercharge your team. We are even experimenting with more interactive experiences in the metaverse with virtual reality sessions.
