The Diamius SupraSelf Mentoring Program is a top-tier development opportunity specifically designed for successful business leaders, motivated professionals and high-level mentors and coaches. Our mentoring clientele includes hundreds of Fortune 50 executives, enterprise-level country leaders, global thought leaders and world-class entrepreneurs. Unlike most mentoring programs, our fully customizable SupraSelf Program delves deep into one's "inner terrain of greatness," the hidden dimensions of superlative character and ways of being that bring about authenticity, enthusiasm, devotion, resilience and accomplishment.

Small businesses and start-ups must rapidly scale-up by building a superlative leadership culture, implementing solid accountability and performance protocols and seizing the competitive advantage in the marketplace. Quantum Growth Scaling Model is composed of eight vital aspects -SupraVision, Go To Market Planning, Go To Market Execution, and the five key expansion areas of Strategy, Capitalization, Accountability, Leadership and Engagement. SupraVision is primary to the model because without superlative leadership even the best positioned and best funded company will fail.

Landing corporate contracts is challenging, but for those who are in possession of the keys required to reach the decision-makers, position their value correctly and effectively market and sell, their success is assured. This nine-module self-paced multimedia program is designed for small and medium-sized business owners transitioning out of one-on-one customer sales and into landing lucrative corporate contracts. The authors of The Keys To The Corporate Kingdom have themselves succeeded in the corporate world for three decades and have worked with hundreds of entrepreneurs in scaling up their enterprises and doing the same.

Being a Leader of One is about recognizing that leading others first begins with leading ourselves.  In other words, developing greater leadership capability is an “inside job” that requires us to lead ourselves into the very places we want others to go.  This Leader of One exists at the very core of who we are, but not the “who” we ordinarily assume ourselves to be.  It is rather, an extraordinary aspect of our self and character possessing exponential capabilities, faculties of superb mindfulness, and a unique humble yet powerful presence demonstrated by every great leader we have ever aspired to model ourselves after.

Today’s leaders must be capable of maintaining peak performance over time as well as managing their well-being.  “Mindfulness” is the practice of attaining a place of inner clarity and peace.  Specifically, it’s about learning how to bring greater attention and focus to our moment-by-moment challenges, staying on purpose and present, and doing so from a non-judgmental state of mind. While Mindfulness’s focus is internal, there are huge benefits to one’s outer world both personally and professionally. Some of the many benefits of practicing mindfulness are recognizing and avoiding habitual reactions, responding more effectively to complex and challenging emotional situations, bringing greater clarity to one’s daily life, and achieving greater work life balance.

Service-based businesses are no longer competing in a local market. Due to maturing markets and global competition, small business owners are finding themselves in dwindling markets with negative growth curves and diminished profits. Only those service-based entrepreneurs and professionals who have a “laser focus” and are the “only game in town” will survive and grow. Clearly identifying your most valuable niche is vital for all successful businesses.

Optimizing team performance and individual accountability requires a clear organizational approach to goal setting, performance expectations and results tracking. Performance Benchmarking is about orienting team members to the daily and long-term commitment and accountability practices needed to optimize both theirs and the entire company’s output. Diamius will implement benchmarking practices and methods that encourage clear goal-setting, achievement, team motivation and support towards producing exponential results.

Our enterprise-level workforce development programs have been delivered to over 60,000 Fortune 50 executives, managers and individual contributors. Outdated hierarchical “leader-follower” strategies are no longer viable in a marketplace thriving on collaboration, innovation and dynamic engagement. Today’s leaders must develop the resource of “collective greatness,” a personal and cultural transformation in which every worker becomes a leader within their own right and “owns” the success of the whole.  Our enterprise programs can be delivered in multiple formats and span workforces ranging from 100 to 100,000 employees. For case studies of our enterprise-level development programs, click here: Actual Case Studies.
