If you have questions we haven’t answered here, please contact us at hello@creative-executive.com, and we’ll get back to you right away.

  • What’s the time commitment?
    Like most things in life, the more you put in, the more you’ll get out of it.  Same applies for The Creative Executive Method.We recommend a minimum of two hours per week, which includes the hour weekly call.  The rest of the time is spent working with others in the group in breakout sessions or on weekly exercises.  You can spend as little or as much time as you like on your personal assignments.  Many participants say they revisit the materials after the course and dive deeper into different aspects of their personal development.
  • What time are the calls?
    We will have four groups of 10–14 participants offered at several different times of day.  Those spots are available on a first-come, first-served basis.  Once you have sent us your application, we’ll send a registration link with available options.
  • When is The Creative Executive Method offered?
    You can sign up here to be the first to know the next time we are offering the class to the public. The Creative Executive Method is also held with private companies and groups.  If you are interested in organizing The Creative Executive Method for your team, group, or company, please contact us at hello@creative-executive.com.
  • What does the course cost?
    The cost of our next public course will be posted once registration is live.
  • How can I pay? Are payment plans an option?
    We have all sorts of payment options available (Visa, Mastercard, Amex, etc.).  Once you have applied and are accepted, you’ll receive payment options and course time options you can reserve.  All of this happens in real-time, so we encourage you to register as soon as you’re accepted, so you can grab your preferred time.
  • Can my company sponsor my participation?
    Whether your company already provides professional development stipends or not, we encourage you to ask your company to pay for this development course.  We can confidently say that there is no one who has taken this course whose company hasn’t benefitted from their participation.  Just some of the benefits participants have reported are: identification of problem areas that weren’t evident before, better communication with their teams, robust ideas, more engaged interaction, a greater sense of awareness and action around leadership…the list goes on and on.  We have a link here that will explain more about the course and help you facilitate the conversation with your employer.
  • Can I share my training materials with my staff or team?
    This is a great question and can sometimes get a little murky, as we ask that you comply with an agreement not to share our worksheets, training, and methods outside the course.  We also realize that many of the worksheets are designed to help you manage your team.  We ask that you use your best judgment when sharing worksheets or reading materials. For recorded calls and aspects of the program tailored to individuals, these must be kept strictly confidential. Confused or unsure? Just email us at hello@creative-executive.com, and we can help you make the right call.
  • What if I am not happy with the class?
    We’ve received only positive reviews in the early release of the program.  In fact, we’ve vetted all of the materials and updated aspects of the course to help ensure you’ll be 100% satisfied with your experience. But we also know learning styles and results can vary.  If you decide the course isn’t for you, we offer a transferable credit or a full or partial refund, depending on where you are within the course.
  • Transferring credits or delayed start.
    We also understand that schedules and client demands can come up at the last minute.  Participants can postpone or transfer their spot in the program to a later session up to one week prior to the class start date without penalty.  If this happens to you, please contact us at hello@creative-executive.com.

 

Creative work by its very nature is usually unorganized, passionate, and messy; navigating the field and managing creative people with professionalism takes thoughtful nurturing not required in other areas of business. The Creative Executive Method understands that and helps you provide structure and leadership without disrupting the flow and dynamism that’s key in a creative environment.

 

I’ve learned much about myself as a leader, how I lead my team effectively and ineffectively. The team response has been positive to the new conversations we are having.

My brain actually thinks differently since I’ve taken The Creative Executive Method. The way I operate on a day-to-day basis, the way I speak, and the way I listen have changed for the better. I feel I developed a stronger ability to think more critically when in a direct leadership or management situation. As a result, I’m a more effective producer, a more open-minded manager, and a much more intuitive leader.

Often I am moving too fast and don’t take the time to think about my style, my impact, and my team’s impact. I realized that taking the time to be mindful about the challenges we discussed, in particular around teams, is really important for me and for the success of my business.

If you want a course that takes the blurry edges of your career and pulls them into focus, I recommend The Creative Executive Method.

We love working with Lauren. We have used her at our annual retreat for two years now, and each time we have walked away with a clearer, cleaner vision of our firm, ourselves, and where we want to go next. She does a great job setting the tone for the day and keeping everyone on track. Having her facilitate allows the leadership team participate in meaningful discussions alongside everyone else. We couldn’t recommend her more.

I felt really frustrated, having been in advertising for a crazy long time, thinking it was too late to change. But we figured something out. Something great. And now I’m creatively inspired again.

We tasked Jen with helping to coach our Atlanta Sales and Strategy teams on leadership, growth, and representing yourself. She had such amazing energy and kept the team engaged through the new insights and strategies she shared, as well as her interactive approach. The team walked away energized and inspired to take the next steps in driving their careers forward.

The more business we won and the bigger projects we were given, the less control I had of my time. Through working with Jen, I made the time to not only prioritize what I really wanted to accomplish both professionally and personally, but to establish what I expected from my staff. It allowed them to grow and take ownership of tasks and let me get back to working within my skill set. It also let me keep up with some personal goals that had fallen into the background. Jen’s coaching helped Wexley grow by helping me improve my overall productivity.

I found myself thrown into the deep end, having to take charge of a team of 10 overnight. Jen helped me find my footing as a manager and gave me the confidence and skills to grow a successful, motivated team.

Working with Jen has been the best investment of the latter half of my 20-year career. I was stuck in my own narrative, and she helped me see the possibilities in a different, authentic, and valuable way.

I’m infusing more fun, energy, and creativity into team meetings as well as spending more time 1:1 with my team members. We are implementing this change across the company, and I am in the process of working with other executives at the company to do the same with their teams.

I want more.
