Military Veteran Launches Unleash Epic Because Our World Needs Better Leaders And A Better Way To Teach Leadership
BEAVERTON, Ore., June 22, 2021 / PRNewswire / – The Founder and CEO of Unleash Epic (https://unleashepic.com), Jean Vyhlidal, learned, practiced and taught how to be an effective leader in some of the most complex environments imaginable. As a former military officer, Big 4 consultant and Fortune 100 employee, he started Unleash Epic because he saw so many people in the corporate world with incredible potential who also struggled as a leader. .
The traditional leadership development programs provided to his colleagues were not helping. Even after the training or coaching, they still didn’t understand what leadership really was. Vyhlidal noted that his colleagues’ experiences are not unique. According to a investigation by McKinsey and Co., 89% of Fortune 500 executives said their leadership development programs were not achieving desired results. In the same survey, 93% of CEOs said their companies are not building effective global leaders.
Traditional leadership development programs can blur the lines between management and leadership, Vyhlidal says. Often when this happens, tangible, concrete concepts are described as management, with leadership being described as behaviors or “soft skills”. This often leaves students with an unclear approach to leadership and no way to practice or assess themselves as a leader.
During his time in the military, Vyhlidal learned that true leadership is a skill that can be honed and developed, especially with a comprehensive leadership framework. Realizing the opportunity to help clarify what leadership is and how to teach others, he sorted out the elements of classic theories of leadership and organizational performance that actually helped bring about real change as opposed to those that did. were just hot air.
After nearly ten years sorting, organizing, and testing his theories, what came out of them is the basis of Unleash Epic. Free Epic’s first course, Leadership Clarified (https://learn.unleashepic.com/lcpl), will launch in August and is suitable for anyone who wants to understand the fundamentals of leadership through a step-by-step process that can be applied to almost any situation.
