ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwired - May 21, 2014) - Leadercast, the business industry's brand that builds leaders worth following, has launched its Leadercast Now platform, the first lifestyle leadership development product that bridges the gap between learning and life for individuals seeking to grow their personal leadership. The announcement was made at Leadercast Live in Atlanta on May 9, broadcast live worldwide in 750 global locations to an audience of more than 125,000 leaders.
Leadercast Now disrupts leadership development in a classroom or book, and brings it into the modern, digital, handheld world. The action-oriented application utilizes short-format video and digital content from multiple successful leaders, and is uniquely designed to maximize learning for the time-starved professional. The platform is designed to build a new daily habit of personal growth in just 10 minutes a day.
"Most people want to become a better leader, but it's difficult because there is no roadmap and it takes too much time," said Eric Miller, Product Manager for Leadercast Now. "At the core of Leadercast Now is the idea that small, intentional steps done regularly over time can yield significant growth, similar to personal fitness training. Leadercast Now will inspire leaders with one significant idea a day and then encourage continued thought and action on that idea over the following couple of days."
Leadercast Now works on any device with a web browser -- from smartphones and smart televisions to tablets and computers -- and is an answer to a growing issue of slow, expensive and inefficient leadership development. Inspirational, to-the-point videos coupled with reflecting questions and personal action planning allows people to learn on their schedule, creating continual leadership learning opportunities.
"As someone who leads an international brand, I understand the importance of having on-the-go access to the very best leadership content," said Cheryl Bachelder, CEO, Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen, Inc. "I'm as excited to contribute content to Leadercast Now as I am to see the impact it will have on the company, its teams, and its organizations."
The content in Leadercast Now is based on careful curation of exclusive material from a diverse group of respected leaders. Leadercast continually works to find and promote the very best insights about being a leader worth following, and that is reflected in the dynamic and growing library of material.
Leadercast Now's mobile-first design and speedy cloud services put this leadership content when and where people are most likely to be engaged to learn and think -- on their phones and tablets in real-life settings. Monthly content updates and regular new feature releases will effortlessly keep users engaged on their leadership journey.
"In my over 15 years of training and leadership in the military and in the elite Navy SEALs program, I know that leadership that stays in a book or a classroom and doesn't translate to real life is not only irrelevant, it can be dangerous," said LCDR Rorke Denver. "That's why I've created exclusive content for Leadercast Now and I can't wait to see how business professionals use it to transform themselves and those they lead."
Leadercast Now will be available for $299, with bulk pricing to be announced at a later date. To view the Leadercast Now video, click here. For more information, visit www.leadercast.com.
