Discover the REAL REASON You Feel Stressed, Sidelined, and Stuck at Work
(And how to tap into an easy, step-by-step proven process that will change all of that.)
Here is a very important question for every ambitious manager, director, or VP whose current position and pay grade do NOT reflect their talent, potential, or abilities...
Do you know the ONE THING that separates managers, directors, and VPs who are always considered for the next promotion, walk into every room with confidence, empower their teams, and meet their goals with ease while the rest of us fumble around trying to "figure things out," battle overwhelm, struggle to manage our teams, and wonder why we are never considered for the next promotion?
If you guessed, "They know how to play politics," you might want to think again.
If you guessed, "They work harder than anyone else," that's not the reason either.
If you guessed, "They were just in the right place, at the right time," that's also probably not the whole story.
Because here's the deal...
The secret of success at work isn't about "luck" or "hard work" or being BFFs with your boss, it's about becoming the CEO of your career—an indisputable leader who can handle any situation with clarity and confidence.
But lest I get ahead of myself, let's first talk about where you are RIGHT NOW.
Is This You?
If you are like so many, you are smart, savvy, ambitious, and talented, bursting with great ideas and unquestioned commitment.
But despite all that you have to give, you feel INVISIBLE, disappointed daily that all your efforts are rarely recognized or rewarded.
  • Careen from crisis to crisis...
  • Work backbreaking hours but no one seems to care...
  • Struggle to prioritize your daily schedule, overwhelmed by conflicting tasks, and demands from your team...
  • Grapple with delegation and decision-making as priorities constantly shift...
  • Feel uncertain about how to motivate and engage your team...
  • Find it difficult to juggle your simultaneous (and somewhat conflicting) roles as a leader to your team and as a subordinate to management...
  • Lay in bed at night wondering what "they" say about you behind closed doors...
  • Watch with envy and frustration when others get promoted...
Do You Hear the Sound of Silence?
But without a doubt, the worst is the SILENCE...

The daily silence from your boss...

The silence that greets that task you slaved over...

The deafening silence when (once again) you aren't considered for a promotion.

Work becomes a giant guessing game where you are left to "figure things out" with no one to guide you.

It's exhausting.

The worst part?
It's how you feel about yourself.
You start to lose confidence.
You wonder if you're really "good enough."
You begin to doubt your career path... and your abilities.
If any of this sounds familiar, then Keep Reading...
Because there IS light at the end of the tunnel.
Success on your own terms is absolutely attainable.
So, What's Holding You Back?
But before I show you how to get the success you deserve; I'd like to address some of the myths that hold many talented people back.
Myth Number One: "My role isn't that important." This belief is just WRONG. In fact, your role is the most valuable in any organization. It is you who connects the dots between the vision at the top and its execution at the bottom, translating high-level strategies into real-time sales. You are your company's force multiplier, working to inspire teams, implement ideas, remove roadblocks, and boost results.
Myth Number Two: "It's only those who play politics well that get rewarded." This popular belief is simply untrue. Getting on the shortlist for that next promotion is not a game of politics or about who likes you. It's about becoming a leader—a person whose unique assets are deeply valued and sought after by all shareholders.
Myth Number Three: "I just need to work harder and eventually I will win." Hard work and commitment are certainly important. But they are never enough. You need to learn how to work smart, master your time and prioritize. You need to understand and communicate your strengths. All the hard work in the world isn't going to matter if you remain the best-kept secret in town.
Myth Number Four: "If I stay here long enough, the company will look after me and my career track." This is what I call the "gold watch syndrome" -- the idea that if you stick around and remain loyal to one company, they will look after you, chart your career path, and teach you everything you need to know to be a success.
The brutal truth?
No one is watching out for you.
No one is coming to show you the path.
No one is going to save you.
Are You The CEO Of Your Career?
That's precisely why you need to take charge.
You need to become the CEO of your career.
Your career is YOUR ship.
You need to be its captain.
You can't give the responsibility to someone else.
You can't wait for instructions.
You need to climb into the driver's seat.
As a successful CEO, you need to:
  • Claim (and communicate) your strengths...
  • Manage your time and priorities with ease...
  • Master your mindset...
  • Delegate fairly...
  • Make decisions swiftly...
  • Inspire and engage your team...
  • Communicate persuasively...
  • Perform with excellence using metrics...
As CEO you must become a LEADER—of yourself, your team, your communication, and your results.
But How Do You Do That?
No one is born a leader.
You need to learn how to master the art of leadership.
You need a playbook—a step-by-step framework to guide you.
Until now, that has been almost impossible to get.
In most companies, leadership training is a hit-and-miss affair, delivered through ad-hoc lunch-and-learn sessions or vague mentorships.
Most of the time, it's non-existent.
You are simply expected to learn on the job.
All that changes.
Right here.
Right now.

Here's What Others Have To Say...
Nils, I am so incredibly grateful to have encountered you and had the opportunity to join this program. It was so much of what I needed, at the right time, that I didn't know how to ask for.

The guidance and structure of the content and resources, the real-life stories contained, how immediately applicable so much of it is but that it also forms a toolkit I know I'll reference for my career.

How you maintained structure in the delivery but it was so personable and participatory.

How from the very beginning you helped shift my perspective and how I felt by thinking about what positive changes this work would represent for me.

This program has enabled me to be a much more intentional leader - intentional with my time, my team, and a better coach and mentor.

It's 100% worth the time and investment - It's easy to put to practice and allows you to implement a little at a time.

Chief Customer Officer
Going into the program, there were aspects of my leadership I felt very good about, things that had maybe come naturally.

The program defined those things and gave me a structure to keep doing them. In that way, it was very validating.

There were also aspects of my leadership I knew I needed help with but didn't know how to tackle.

Again, now I have a structure to build my own plans on. Now I know how to talk about my work in an interview, to a new boss, an existing boss, a board.

I feel more confident as a VP as a result of working with Nils.

Nils has provided me with the critical skills that have enabled me to recruit, lead, and grow world-class leaders as well as drive significant transformational change.

Catherine Blackmore
GVP SaaS Customer Success at Oracle

Nils helped me discover solutions that were perfectly aligned with my strengths. I feel empowered to take on any challenge as a result of the strategies and techniques I learned working with Nils.
Michael Fulvio
Manager, Account Management at Curalate
Recently, I was promoted! The great work I did, thanks to Nils' expert coaching, enabled me to be recognized for excelling in my role above and beyond what was required. I'm thrilled with the end result.
Aurélie Deger
Sr. Customer Success Executive at Zendesk

What sets Nils apart is his ability to help you discover the answers to your most pressing questions through frameworks and expert coaching.

I am a more confident and effective leader in my organization as a result of my experience with Nils' coaching.

Adam Mackie
Director of Account Management at G5
Before I started coaching with Nils, I felt overwhelmed and scattered. There were so many projects and potential things I could do that I didn't know where to focus my time and energy.

A few short months later, I feel organized, refreshed and excited for the future. I can honestly say that I have become a better leader and now have the tools to boost my entire team.

Natalie Onions
Director of Customers at
Nils' ability to help me discover the underlying issues and challenges is what sets him apart from other coaches I've engaged in the past. Regardless of the situation, we get to the right answer for me and then Nils holds me accountable.

I feel more confident as a VP as a result of working with Nils.

Jason Lomax
VP Customer Success at Device 42
I was able to immediately use the exercises and it has already made a huge impact on my team and reputation at work.
This program could not have come at a better time. I have been struggling with a number of challenging things at work and I was feeling stuck.

There were so many valuable and simple things that you shared that helped me change my mindset and realize that I could make an impact on myself and my team and ultimately come out of this tough time more resilient and ready to keep going.

Vice President
I had looked into several leadership programs and books. I am confident that I made the right choice by selecting this program.

I thoroughly enjoyed hearing how others in the program have applied Nils' strategies right away and seen results on the live Q&A calls.

It's very motivating and I'm confident I will be using these strategies over the next 10 years.

My Message To You...
Hi, I'm Nils, the CEO/Founder of Leadership MBA.
I have lived first-hand all of the challenges and frustrations that so many of you are feeling: the overwhelm, the confusion, the frustrations, the lack of self-confidence...
I understand what it feels like to give 110% all the time and to teeter on the edge of burnout.
I've been there.
Like you, I was hungry to get to the next level.
I was eager to do things right and get recognition for my efforts—but I simply didn't know HOW to do that.
After bouncing around from one unsatisfactory job to the next, I decided to take charge and figure out the "how".
First, I earned an MBA in Management and Organizational Behavior.
Then, in 2012, I became a certified leadership coach.
By applying all the lessons I learned, my career took off and I went from being an individual contributor to a Vice President in a record 2.5 years.
I realized I was onto something and so I started to share my leadership playbook with clients, many of whom have been promoted to Vice-President and C-level positions.
Over the past 11+ years, I have devoted thousands of hours to coaching leaders at companies like Oracle, Apple, Segment, WalkMe, Typeform, and more.
In 2020, I wrote the best-selling 30 Day Leadership Playbook-Your Guide To Becoming The Leader You Have Always Wanted To Be.
I decided to create the Leadership MBA to share my system with more people.
This program is the easiest, most affordable way to crack the code to your success–a code literally NO ONE else is teaching.
It doesn't matter what role you are in today.
It doesn't matter what your company does or does not have.
What matters is leveraging the greatest potential of YOU.
I look forward to joining you on that journey.
