Inside Foundations to Lead From™ you will:
✔ Step up as a Leader and learn my 5 step foundational framework underpinned by the core which is 'leadership' (that you can go back and revisit time and time again as you evolve) to enable you to lay solid foundations for a thriving business that you LOVE (and of course, gifts you back more of what makes you happy - like more time and money!)

PLUS Upgrade and get 1:1 access to me, so that you have all you need to lean in on and develop.
Within step one you’ll learn exactly which areas of your business bring you joy (and which don’t) and discover not only what your ideal looks like - but also what constitutes a nightmare client.
It’s time to align your business to your values and your needs.
You’ll review the products and services you offer with fresh eyes; looking at what is working and what needs to change.
We will look at ways to draw more of the dreamy clients you desire into your world with a sturdy business model that serves both them and you. This is a pivotal step for you.

Achieving your goals requires strategy and action, but being so close to your business can blur your focus.
Step five will see you pulling your own strategy together and taking massive action to step up as the leader of your business! The new YOU begins.
No more playing small.
What our clients are saying...
"I have been running my own business for 15 years. It was something that grew organically, so I had no plan. It just evolved over time. When Covid-19 hit I found myself feeling lost and not sure what the best next step was. Get Set for Success has had a profound impact on me as a business leader. It has helped me develop my mindset and increased my understanding of myself and my business. I have made new friends and contacts and have learnt so much from those participating as well as from Leigh and her amazing collection of experts."
Branding & Graphic Designer
"Working with Leigh has been absolutely game changing! Not only for my businesses but my life as a whole! I have ran 2 businesses for over 5 years, so I wasn’t new to the world of business when I discovered Leigh, but I did feel that something was lacking. As a result of working with Leigh, I have never felt more in alignment with what I’m doing, I have been able to make changes in my businesses which mean I’m actually working less but my profits are going up and up!"
Digital Marketing Consultant
Well Hello There!
My name is Leigh Howes and many years of experience have taught me so much about what works (and what doesn’t) as your own boss.
Rewind a few years (and even after a decade of partnering with a heap of business leaders…including a Fortune 500). I set up my own company and went on to make every mistake in the book. Oh yes. You name a business clanger… and I dropped it. I quickly learnt that you cannot scale a wobbly business built on sand.
Truthfully, I didn’t figure out what I wanted, who I helped or how best to support them. I was flailing around without structure, purpose or much profit. I was overwhelmed, fake smiling and returning to my previous career in HR felt like my only option.
The good news? A TON of hard work, clarity, investment and some serious bounce-back-ability means life is different for me now, and my mistakes make valuable lessons for you. Nothing brings me more joy than spring boarding business owners like you out of overwhelm so that you too can fulfil your true potential and get set up to achieve more…
"Having worked with Leigh in this programme, I now have a better understanding and clarity for the way to move my business forward. Better than that though is that I have a set of tools I can reuse again and again to repeat the process sometime in the future to make sure I am on track!"
"This programme has given me purpose, focus and the determination to proceed with my business on my terms. Working with Leigh led to a lightbulb moment that made me put together everything I had been struggling with over the past year or more."
Plain Sailing Web Solutions
"The programme was a complete game changer. Leigh is amazing at getting you to focus and understand your audience and your business which enables you to take ownership and reassess your model and product mix. I have learnt so much in a few short weeks and have grown myself and my business at the same time."

What our clients are saying...
How long is Foundations to LEAD From™ The Programme?
6 months. We start in March each year and stay together until September.
Has it always been called Foundations to LEAD From™?
When we first launched it was called The Growth Academy - Get Set for Success. It shortened to Get Set for Success but when Leigh published her best selling book - Foundations to LEAD From in November 2021, the name of the programme subsequently changed. Please note you you may see or hear some testimonials referring to its former name and the book refers to Get Set for Success too.
What if I cannot attend a training/bonus speaker live?
Obviously, we would love for you to attend the sessions live as you have the opportunity to ask questions and share any challenges. However, please do not worry that you may miss something. Every single session is recorded and immediately uploaded into your private library alongside all of the resources, workbooks and tools. You can therefore catch up at your own pace if you are unable to follow the flow of the programme.
What if I need help and support outside of the live sessions?
You will be given access to a private FB group for the 6 months we work together and you can ask questions in there, share any wins and get support from me and your fellow FTLF members. If you ever have issues accessing anything or another question, the team are always on hand via email to provide support.
How long do I have access to Foundations to LEAD From™ Programme?
You will have lifetime access to all of the teachings and resources in your library. So, you can go back and re-watch, access the tools as you need and catch up at your pace too.
