Managing relationships
is hard.

It's even HARDER
in a remote working environment.

But it's EASY with Intuitive Leadership, Neural Influence, and Mental Mastery skills.

Developing and Maintaining Relationships and Your Relevance in a Remote Working Environment Can Be Really Challenging ...

... And You May Only Be One Small Speed-Bump Away From a Relationship Crisis ... and Then it's Usually Too Little, Too Late!

Technical skills, best practices, and following rigid processes or standards won't solve most of your relationship challenges ... they usually make it harder.

Successful leaders know it's ALL about relationships.

And when relationships aren't where they should be, being a leader in a medium to large organization can be really challenging.

I understand, since I've been in your shoes multiple times.

If you are like most leaders:

  • You're having conversations with executives who don't fully understand the value you bring to your organization.
  • You're dealing with performance and staffing concerns when developing and motivating your team.
  • You're trying to figure out how to develop and maintain relationships with your stakeholders and staff in this new remote work environment.
  • You've got a lot on your plate, and feel like you are constantly putting out fires never getting your own work done until after hours or the weekend.
  • You're tired and burned out, juggling all of the pressures of being a leader with the responsibilities in your personal life.

You are not alone in having these thoughts, since I hear these same things from most leaders I work with.

The good thing ... all of these can be overcome when you have learn Intuitive Leadership, Neural Influence, and Mental Mastery skills, and then apply and practice them until you become a relationship ninja, so it's very easy for you to get exactly what you want from your career and life. 

People listen to you, value your input, and respect you.

Skills like: strategy, rapport, relevance, influence, culture, delegation, coaching / training, motivation, mindset, habits, emotional intelligence, and resilience.

To be an Intuitive Leader, you need to be proficient in all of these principles, and they are easy to master for anyone who leads or manages others.

Have fully considered what a relationship crisis would cost you?

What if you are only one small speed bump away from having a relationship crisis?

If you are the kind of leader who is committed to your personal and professional growth, and learn how to make your job EASY, then keep on reading…

It's All About Relationships

“When dealing with people, remember you are not dealing with creatures of logic, but creatures of emotion.”
— Dale Carnegie

As you already know, everything in life ultimately comes down to the quality of your relationships ... and relationships take time and effort.

You've been trained to be analytical, logical, systematic, and disciplined, but these skills actually make developing relationships more difficult.

These skills make you seem like a robot to others in your organization.

The desire to always follow the standards and be seen as independent and objective is usually perceived by others as being arrogant or self righteous ... not the traits for developing relationships with other human beings, right?

It's no wonder you have resistance from stakeholders when they see you as an outsider and not a team player.

You've been trained on the technical skills of auditing, but these don't teach you how to motivate and develop your staff.

Knowing how to select a statistical sample for testing, or planning an audit doesn't prepare you for the tough and often difficult conversations you need to have with your staff or stakeholders.

And it's not your fault.

The internal audit profession is pushing the standards and telling people we are independent, objective, unique and valuable to an organization because of our technical knowledge, but that is a broken model that just doesn't work in an age of emotional intelligence and influence.

Do you trust someone just because they have a certification, a fancy title, or wear a uniform?

Of course not, since those things aren't what really matter in human relationships. Human beings are emotional beings and leaders skilled in psychology and emotional intelligence perform better.

“What really matters for success, character, happiness and life long achievements is a definite set of emotional skills – your EQ — not just purely cognitive abilities that are measured by conventional IQ tests.”  — Daniel Goleman

Successful executive who are trusted by their peers know it all comes down to how well you manage relationships with your stakeholders, your staff, and your self.


What's The Missing Piece?

It takes much more than reading a few leadership books. You actually have to get in the water to learn how to swim. Having one or two puzzle pieces doesn't give you the full picture.

Most people think if they read a few books they have the knowledge to do anything. But that's like reading a book and then jumping in the pool think you "know" how to swim. You don't learn to swim until you practice what you learn.

Having one or two puzzle piece is not enough to create the full picture. Successful leaders know they need to follow a methodology and master many different skills to be proficient and become unconsciously competent.

There are 12 points of focus in the ELP Leadership ModelTM with many skills for each that you need to master to become a black-belt in relationship management.

It may seem like a lot to take it, but when you break it down into weekly topics you study and then practice it becomes very simple.

The real question is whether you are willing to invest the time and effort to master these principles:

  • Influence: how to use the six scientifically-proven principles of influence to deepen your relationships and get people to say YES.
  • Rapport: how to unconsciously create rapport with anyone in a few minutes, ninja tricks others won't share with you.
  • Relevance: how to focus your efforts on building relationships and delivering value that is relevant so others appreciate your hard work.
  • Strategy: how to position you and your team as a leader and the go-to-group within your organization.
  • Culture: how to establish and develop a team culture so you accomplish your bigger strategy within the organization.
  • Delegation: how to effectively delegate, provide meaningful work to your team, and avoid burnout when you are left working evenings and weekends by not delegating effectively.
  • Coaching & Training: how to get the most out of your team so everyone on the team thrives.
  • Motivation: how to motivate and get the most out of everyone on your team so they love working for you.
  • Mindset: how to keep a positive mindset and use your brain to get exactly what you want.
  • Habits: how to stop or start habits so you get the results you want.
  • Emotional Intelligence: how to identify and manage your emotions and those of others.
  • Resilience: how to manage the normal ups and downs of life and avoid, stress, anxiety and depression.

I'm sure you see how easy it will be for you to get exactly what you want from your career and life when you incorporate these, and how much it could cost you if you don't.

Most executive leadership programs require a significant financial and time investment, but

For less than a cup of coffee, and 15-30 minutes each week, you improve relationships, enhance your relevance, and get the confidence you need to add more value NOW!

Get Started Now!

The Executive Leadership PresenceTM  (ELP) Model of Leadership

It takes more than technical skills to be relevant

If you aren't getting the results you want, the root cause has nothing to do with your technical skills, it is from not effectively managing stakeholders, self, or staff. 

Problem is ... the traditional path to internal audit leadership roles doesn't provide you with a methodology or model to prepare you.

Successful executives know their success or failure comes down to how well they manage relationships.

Mastering relationships also improves your confidence and elevates your team and your career.

And ... they don't just improve your confidence and elevate your team, but they also make your job much easier and more satisfying.

Skills like: mindset, habits, emotional intelligence, resilience, strategy, rapport, relevance, influence, culture, delegation, coaching / training, and motivation, are just the starting point.

To be an effective executive, you need to be proficient in all of these areas.

Knowing is not the same as doing.

Without a structured executive leadership program you are left all alone to use self motivation and trial and error to figure out what works, and what doesn't work.

And I'm sure you realize, no matter how motivated you may think you are, 92% of people give up and don't do the work using self-motivation alone.

How many times have you set new year's resolutions and then stopped after two or three weeks?

It's human nature to do just that.

That's why professional athletes, successful business owners and executives hire coaches and work a daily and weekly program to improve their performance. They know that by themselves they cannot improve their performance to compete at a world-class level.

The same is true for world-class executive leaders.

The ELP ModelTM gets one level deeper with practical exercises and tips on how to apply these skills and make then second nature in your job.

The concepts and skill included in the CAE BriefingTM Executive Leadership Program have been use for years to coach top performing executives, business owners, and world-class athletes to get peak performance ... and now they are available to you.


15-30 minutes each week!

This is the ONLY executive leadership program for internal audit leaders to develop, maintain and improve relationships and increase your relevance. It also remove the root cause of almost all challenges so you improve your confidence, develop better relationships, and increase your relevance.

As soon as you start now, you will quickly see your effectiveness improve, your relationships improve, and your confidence improve.

Leaders who think they don't need any help tend to find that things are fine, until they are not ... and by then it's usually too little, too late. I know you aren't like that.

You are someone who is willing to invest in yourself and take control of your career, aren't you?

Leaders who don't invest in themselves find they are pushed to the back of the line, when everyone else is progressing.

And I know you aren't one of those leaders, right?

When you work the program, you will get results.

But, don't take my word for it.

"I have used many coaches and mentors over the years. The ideas and value I received in one call with Jason Mefford, was worth more than all of the other coaches and mentors I have used combined." AJ

These are principles I have been using with other executives I coach one-on-one, who have seen incredible results.

And now, I'm making them available to you in a convenient format that you can work on in just 30 minutes a week.

Brief, just like the title ...
