  • Don’t want to spend months in a class

What You Get with The actionableMBA™

Manage and lead the way YOU are meant to lead.

Don’t try to fit your square peg into a circle. You won’t have to pretend to be something you’re not.

The traditional educational system does NOT teach you to communicate effectively.

Grammar and spelling does NOT equal good & effective communication.

We show you how to communicate the actionableMBA way so your wires never get crossed.

The traditional educational system and traditional MBA’s don’t teach you how to delegate effectively.

We show you the core principles we learned from real-life instead of theories from a textbook that’s “supposed” to work in an ideal world.

Forget inbox zero.

We explain why productivity is NOT only about time management.

We share with you easy-to-implement ways to protect your time from the “time vampires”.

Problem-solving is one of the top value-creation skills you can have that’s transferable to ANY industry and ANY job function.

We share 3 fundamental frameworks for problem-solving. These are like the Swiss-army knives of problem-solving.

How to make bullet-proof decisions, even if your decision doesn’t work out the way you want it to.

What the Challenger Space Shuttle tragedy taught us about decision-making.

The traditional hiring & recruiting methods are broken.

We share methods we’ve used in real-life to hire A-level talent and diamonds-in-the-rough.

The actionableMBA method of hiring also overcomes the problem of people lying on their resumes/CV’s.

Leaders and managers who are too entrenched in the “old” ways of managing a team are struggling in the new remote work and hybrid work environments.

We share why that is and how to lead and manage in the current remote and hybrid work environments.

If you’re a manager with no financial background, you might feel uncomfortable around the numbers, accounting and financial statements.

This bonus module helps you feel comfortable with the basic and most crucial financial statements you need to know.

AI is the next big technological revolution (even bigger than the Internet).

We’ll separate the hype from reality and share the fundamental concepts you need to know for how to harness AI instead of letting AI replace you.
