Learn to Lead Program

Markle Consulting’s signature Learn to Lead Program is a 5-module leadership training program delivered live to your leadership team (in-person or virtually!). Each module focuses on a different area of leadership to ensure that by the end of the program, your team has a strong foundational understanding of what being a strong leader means. 

Through our program, your team will be equipped with tangible tools to become strong leaders. This is more than just another training, it’s a total transformation for your leadership team! 


Possible side effects of this program include financial savings from greater employee satisfaction (i.e., less turnover and more enjoyment) and improved culture, higher performing team members, and effective communication leading to resilient working relationships and successful project outcomes. 

Anchor 1

Our program includes different learning modalities for the concepts to resonate with all types of learners. Group discussions are integrated into each session to ensure that the concepts are tailored directly to your unique organization. The fun, open, and collaborative approach creates an organic team-building environment to engage and bring unity to your leadership team. 


Over the course of the program, we teach your leadership team everything they need to know about:

  • Leadership styles, 

  • How to lead a team, 

  • Communicating effectively, 

  • The basics of employment standards,

  • Performance reviews,

  • Giving feedback, 

  • And so much more!


Designed and developed in-house specifically for small business teams, our Learn to Lead Program consists of 5 modules to build stronger leaders in your workplace. We deliver these sessions to your entire leadership team in-person or virtually, so everyone learns the fundamental management and leadership concepts together. 


With our integrated approach, you’re able to discuss how these concepts would be best applied in your workplace. Each module is an opportunity to learn, problem-solve and team build together. You get to learn how to lead alongside those you'll be leading with. Each participant is provided with their own workbook to use throughout the program, and to refer to for years to come.

The Learn to Lead Program is for the small business or non-profit leadership team that:

  • Wants to create a positive workplace culture and effective environment for employees

  • Is unsure how to navigate sticky interpersonal challenges

  • Doesn’t know how to fulfill the core components of the Employment Standards Act

  • Wants to learn about leadership and management in a comfortable, accessible, and safe space

  • Needs to develop a more cohesive and consistent leadership approach

  • Could benefit from a unique and impactful team building opportunity

You need the Leadership Program because it:

  • Is a cost-effective way to ensure your leaders have the tools they need to be successful,

  • Ensures that your leadership team understands the fundamental concepts and theories of management and leadership,

  • Teaches your leaders how to navigate challenging situations and conversations, and to manage different types of people,

  • Strengthens your leadership team and company culture, 

  • Ensures that your managers understand how to comply with employment legislation,

  • Improves the employee experience at your company to create happier and more productive staff,

  • Provides built-in accountability from your team to ensure that what they’ve learned is put into daily practice, 

  • Helps your leaders manage performance and communicate effectively, ultimately limiting liability to your business, and 

  • Helps you feel much more confident stepping away from the day-to-day, enabling your leaders to step up to be the leaders you hired them to be. 

Your commitment during the Learn to Lead Program: 

Our Learn to Lead Program has been developed to be as accessible, educational, practical, and enjoyable as possible. Your role, alongside your leadership team, is to show up to your 3.5-hour session led by Markle Consulting, once per month for 5 months. Come with an open mind and be ready to learn with your peers!


Between sessions we encourage you and your team to practice what you’ve learned by applying the concepts into your daily work. This helps to create a better understanding of the material and allows for you to ask any questions at the next session. 

If you want to make sure this is the right investment for you, read this:

Our Learn to Lead Program is unlike any others on the market. Have you ever attended an external training program and felt really excited about what you'd learned, but when you got back to the office you had no idea how to apply the concepts in your workplace and your colleagues just didn't understand your excitement? Us too. And it sucks. What a waste of money! 


So, we decided to solve that problem. 


Our approach of training your whole leadership team together means:

  • It’s cost effective and cheaper than paying for individual training programs

  • You have a built-in team building activity for your leaders

  • Less of your leaders’ time is spent away from work

  • The materials actually get used and applied in your workplace

  • Everyone learns the same material together at the same time


Instead of scratching your head at the end of our training wondering what to do next, each of the concepts taught in our sessions are designed to be implemented immediately. This gives your team the chance to put what they’ve learned into practice in advance of the next session. Additionally, each team member will receive a workbook that they can use throughout the program that will become a timeless resource for them to refer to for years to come!
