The Leadership Edge
Start Your Journey to 21st Century Leadership
We are in the midst of a silent crisis that is costing us, annually, more than one and a half TRILLION dollars in lost productivity!
Teams can barely get their work done in time.
Workers that bounce from job to job looking for fulfillment and other workers who have simply — checked out.
People who are suffering hypertension, migraines, nervousness, and anxiety — just to name a few from the long list of ailments.
Toxic work environments.
And it’s all due to one thing — the lack of 21st century leadership skills.
The leadership skills we needed in the 20th century are not the same skills we need in the 21st century. If you are a leader today, you know the world is changing rapidly — you must keep your skills up to date.
So many leadership programs exist today that tell you “what kind of leader you are,” but very few show you the skills that you can learn to become a strong leader.
More importantly – the same skills that can make you a strong leader, can also support you in every other aspect of your life, from your health to your family – strong leadership skills can make all the difference!
The Leadership Edge is a product of my 35 years of leadership and management experience combined with extensive research, all brought together into one place – just for you. Artisan Agility’s The Leadership Edge Training System can show you the skills you need. You can explore these skills at your pace, in your time. No classes to attend. Just straightforward explanations from someone who has been doing this for 35 years, and clearly defined work assignments that you complete between the lessons to practice your new skills. No matter what kind of work you do, you need these skills!
My question to you is this: what can I do to help you make the decision?
I’ll make the decision easy and risk free. If you spend the time and do the work, and you still find that the system does not provide value before you receive the third module (so that gives you 21 days), I’ll give you your money back. No questions asked, and you’ll probably still learn something you didn’t already know in the meantime.
Also, I’ll give you the option to purchase The Leadership Edge in one payment of $1695 or six monthly payments of $285. I know, it sounds like a lot, but consider that, in a recent survey, more than 60% of corporate leaders said that their biggest problem was finding and retaining strong leaders. The skills I will show you in The Leadership Edge will immediately make you more valuable at work. This training system can pay for itself in less than a single year!
When you purchase The Leadership Edge, you also get
12 modules containing video lessons, quizzes, and student workbooks for your notes and to complete the assignments,
Lifetime access to the modules, whenever you want to re-watch them,
Access to all improvements (updated materials, updated information, latest studies and findings, etc.) that we make to the training system, and
Access to a private email address access to our coaches, you can help you use what you’re learning in your particular work environment.
And because you’re reading this right now, I’ll also give you a discount code, Leadership1 (for a single payment) or Leadership6 (for monthly payments), that you can use to take $200 off the purchase price if you use it today!
Basically, we’ve built a lifetime leadership academy that we are going to keep improving just for you to help build a community of strong, passionate, and valuable 21st century leaders.
If you have any questions at all, I want you to email me directly at email@example.com OR you can use this link and schedule 30 minutes to speak directly to me about the training system.
Group registrations AND corporate wide licenses are available upon request (contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org).

Here’s what some of our clients had to say about us:
"I took a Scrum Master course and was completely impressed. Agile and Scrum are concepts that do not exist in a vacuum. Without real business contexts, and especially real software development experience, Agile doesn't mean much. It was Jim's ability to teach the material with his ﬁnger always on best practices that made the class a home run."
Pete Lunenfeld, Executive V.P., Registry Monitoring Insurance Services, Inc.
"I recently took the Certiﬁed ScrumMaster class. Not only did our instructor thoroughly understand the course material and knows how to teach it well but he also has many real-world examples to further enhance one's learning. I really enjoyed the class and learned a lot!"
Barbara Kroczak, Senior Program Manager, Riverbed Technology
"CSM training with Artisan was the best training that I have ever taken. The class was lively and interactive. They covered Agile fundamentals and material relevant to the CSM exam. They were not hesitant to take questions and had lots of examples from real world experience. I passed the CSM exam with an almost perfect score without help from any other sources."
Farhan Hamlani, Information Technology, E*TRADE Financial Corporation
"I had the pleasure of attending a 2-day seminar on Agile and it was fantastic. If you are looking to improve your understanding of Agile from someone who has done it (not just someone who read it) for years, Artisan is the one. I have attended many other seminars but none as plain and simple. Most coaches add an unnatural aura to Agile as if it were some mystic and ancient magic. Artisan presents these concepts in a dispassionate yet highly precise manner."
The 2020 Scrum Guide has thankfully put something in words that many of us in the industry have known for years: the Scrum Master is "accountable for the Scrum Team's effectiveness." As in, getting things done without unnecessary waste. But does that mean that the Scrum Master now has some kind of authority? Absolutely

Helping an organization learn how to change means getting an organization to learn that “the way we’ve always done it” works but doesn’t necessarily mean you’ve found the BEST way to do something, or even a reasonably good way to do something. As a ScrumMaster and change advocate, you’ll need to teach your organization
