Combining The Tech Leader Program And
The Entrepreneurial Engineer Frameworks

When you join the Tech leader Program, you'll learn the 9-step Career Accelerator Framework with all the leadership, management and problem solving skills you need to become a talented Tech Leader.

You’ll also get access to the 4-step Entrepreneurial Engineer Framework, which focuses on positioning yourself and attracting clients.

We’ll cover any specific questions you might have during our Mastermind Sessions each week.

Define Your Unique User Story

Many talented engineers underestimate their value or need help believing in themselves and their skills.

Impostor syndrome is a common problem, but there are many other reasons why so many experienced people don't recognize their full value in the market.

The Tech Leader Program will ensure you understand your authentic and unique value to your (next) client.

We’ll help you define your Unique User Story so you can position yourself to customers naturally.

Step 2

Create Your Personal Leadership Track

You probably know you lack specific non-technical and entrepreneurial skills. And you’re probably lacking some things you haven’t thought about.

That’s where we come in. We help you build a Personal Roadmap and support you as you work through it.

Since most of your peers won’t have one, creating your own roadmap will give you a distinct advantage as a newcomer in the market.

Attract the Right Opportunities by Developing Your Personal Brand

Why do some people get hired as a CTO directly while others go through slow and painful application processes?

It comes down to one word — reputation.

They have a personal brand that people understand, trust, and refer to others in their network.

The Tech Leader Program will help you build the personal brand and reputation your skills deserve to attract the opportunities you want.

Step 4

Grow into a Leader

The tech industry has a desperate need for technical experts who also have excellent leadership skills.

Leadership can be learned, but no leader is the same.

The Tech Leader Program will give you the information and skills to craft a confident leadership style and persona that suits you best.

Master Managing

Some people like to manage, while others genuinely dislike it.

Not everyone is a "natural manager", but some degree of managing will always be part of a Tech Leader's role.

Both natural and non-natural managers learn the knowledge and skills to confidently create and control the team and processes for maximizing your deliverables as a CTO.

Step 6

From just Communicating to Influencing

The most critical skill for any successful leader is the ability to communicate and influence across your organization.

Tech Leaders need to be able to communicate and influence upward to bosses and stakeholders, sideways to peer officers, and downward to align and motivate their teams and direct reports.

Communication and influencing become more manageable when you understand how others think and make decisions.

Stronger Decision Making & Problem Solving

For any team to be effective, you must bring together a diverse group of people with different skills, backgrounds, and methodologies.

Because this is challenging for Tech Leaders we focus on improving your practical knowledge and skills for approaching problems and making decisions.

With this knowledge, you can coach and mentor your team to make good decisions on their own, so you can work on higher-level problems.

Step 8

Hiring & Team Building

Your ability to build a strong team is critical to your success as a Tech Leader.

We teach you how to attract, vet, hire and onboard the best people for your high-performance team.

Your success as a leader depends on picking the right people, creating the right culture and installing the proper control mechanisms for your team to go after objectives happily.

Delegation, Accountability & Results

Your career, reputation and the rewards you receive are tied to the results you create.

This is where the skills of delegation and accountability give you leverage to make the most impact.

Many Tech Leaders struggle with delegating because their careers and success have come from their work as individual contributors.

You'll learn to delegate effectively and create the accountability required to achieve your team's goals.

Step 10

Productize Your Expertise

As a Fractional CTO, we'll help you package up your unique experience and perspectives into a scalable service that will help early-stage startups get started on the right technical foot.

Market Your Offering

Tech Leaders can connect you with opportunities for fCTO work, but we'll also show you how to attract your ideal opportunities yourself.

You'll learn how to market yourself with authenticity and authority, without feeling like a sell-out or jeopardizing your day job.

Step 11
Step 12

Selling Your Services

Sales can be tricky for people who've never done it before, especially if you tend to avoid self-promotion.

Mastering sales takes a different approach than solving technical challenges, and we'll show you how to confidently close deals with integrity.

Scaling Your Operations

If you want to work with multiple clients at the same time, we'll help you scale your services so you can work with concurrent companies without burning out.

This step is the key to creating a whole portfolio of equity and fully replacing your full-time income from a day job.
