Frequently Asked Questions

What does it include?

The Unicorn Leadership Training Program is a virtual 12-week program that advances a manager's leadership capabilities from good to great. Managers will complete assessments, watch the videos, and complete the weekly challenges. Then they'll use the provided leadership models, frameworks, and resources in their role. If they ask questions during group coaching and follow the process they can strengthen bonds and performance of their team.

How is this better than one-on-one coaching?

This is a solution to train managers at scale, long term. Have confidence knowing your managers are equipped with a shared set of leadership development principles. This scalable solution to leadership development gives you the flexibility to enter cohorts of managers into the program at anytime, from anywhere.

Why is this better than using open source content?

The fundamental difference between open source content (books, articles) and a program is that the former provides information and our program provides personalized experiences that guides managers through a transformation.

The Unicorn Leadership development process is linear. We give you the exact steps to advance your leadership skills and teach you how to apply it to your team in real-time as a manager. The program is designed by managers, for managers. And the content reflects that.

What data do you track and measure? How?

Enterprise teams who enter the program will be required to complete the following assessments: 

  1. Employee Engagement Survey: This survey is taken by the participating manager’s team members before and at the end of the program. If the manager is engaged with the material and implementing the learning, we should see the engagement score increase over time.
  1. Team Assessment: This assessment is taken by the participating manager’s team members to see how the team scores against our benchmarks on the six levels of Unicorn Leadership. 
  1. Leadership 360 Degree Review: This assessment is taken by the manager and a group of people who interact with them most. This review assesses how the manager performs on the leadership capabilities taught in the program. 
  1. DISC Personality Assessment: This assessment is taken by the manager to determine their personality type. We will teach them how to leverage and adapt their communication style to the individual and situation. 
  1. Emotional Intelligence Assessment: This assessment is taken by the manager to determine how in tune they are with their emotions and those of others.

Each of these assessments will be delivered as a report. Managers will learn how to interpret and improve their scores through the program content. 

What is Unicorn Leadership?

Unicorn Leadership is a framework for team culture development. Managers must advance their team members through each pillar to have a high performing team. You can read more about the system in this blog post here.

What makes Fahd qualified to teach the program?

Fahd has over a decade of experience leading teams. He has led an organization with over 150 staff, built multiple startups, and has combined his first-person experience with literature to create the proprietary Unicorn Leadership Framework taught in the program. This framework advances managers through the six levels of team dynamics and trains them on leadership capabilities required to do so. 

Fahd’s purpose is to give managers the mental models, literature, and action items required to make a lasting change in their behaviour. Then hold them accountable to it.

How can I be confident this program works for different learning styles?

Since the learning modules are delivered online, managers can absorb the program content at their own pace. They can choose to watch, read, or listen to the learning modules. It will also be available to them indefinitely so they can rewatch videos in the future.

How much administrative work is required?

As an enterprise client, you will be assigned an Account Manager who will onboard your team and manage your experience. The managers in your organization will be required to have their team members complete the assessments. Besides that, everyone is responsible for themselves.

How do I ensure that the managers stay engaged throughout the program?

We’ve designed this program to be an immersive learning experience for managers. New content is released weekly, live coaching calls with their peers hold them accountable, and assessments and weekly action items ensure the material is implemented and stays top of mind.

How much does it cost?

We price the program by the number of managers enrolled in the program. Our enterprise rate start at $3,000 per manager.

What if we want to add new hires to the program in the future?

The beauty of this program is that it can be your long term solution for leadership development training for managers. You can enrol management cohorts or as a single membership. Note that single memberships do not include coaching.
