ABT Leader Certification

Are you a leader who wants to authentically connect with your team? Do you want to learn how to inspire others to achieve greater things than ever before?

At The Cramer Institute, we believe that great leadership begins with you. While there are many facets of great leadership – honor and integrity, talent, experience, and great people skills to name a few – inspiring leadership arises first from a greater awareness of who you are, how you think, and how you relate with the people around you.

This is why we created the ABT Leader Certification Program. ABT is a revolutionary yet simple codification of Dr. Kathy Cramer’s years of thinking and practice as a psychologist, executive coach and best-selling author. It is the step-by-step approach that enables you to consistently shift from negative, deficit-based thinking and instead direct your attention to what is valuable and possible in yourself, in your employees and clients, and in every business situation – to connect, to inspire, and to achieve your leadership potential.

In this exclusive Leader Certification Program led by Dr. Kathy Cramer, you’ll discover and hone your leadership agenda, discover your unique combination of assets, learn how to more effectively engage and mentor those you lead – individuals and teams – and unleash your organization’s potential.  ABT Leader Certification includes:

  • You ROC: How to build Resilience, Optimism, and Confidence in yourself and others with ABT Tools
  • Minds on Fire:  Igniting Purpose, Passion and Commitment in Those You Lead:  How to be a powerful force for positive change in your circle of influence
  • ABT Coaching (1-1): 5 sessions focused on applying your ABT leadership agenda
