Congratulations on your decision to take part in the Lead to Succeed Program (LTS). Your first workshop will be in October, 2020 with the exact dates and venue to be confirmed.
This is the beginning of a journey into self-discovery and personal development that will enable you to engage more effectively as the leader of your business with a lot more ease and a lot less stress!
Lead to Succeed is a 3-year program. Each year builds on the previous year. The leadership training is broken down into 4 semesters for the first and second year and 3 master classes in the final year. The course content has been designed so that delegates can elect to do 12 months, 2 years or the full 3 years and will have a complete understanding of the application of leadership to experience the many benefits this brings across all aspects of life.
We ask in return that you commit to the completion of the 12-month process once commenced, assuming we are delivering the goods of course! Please review our satisfaction guarantee, 12-month amortised payment plan agreement towards the end of this document along with our cancellation policy.
This Lead to Succeed joining instruction marks your acceptance into Team Whiskey. The intention is that you will remain in Team Whiskey for your time at Lincoln and form some amazing relationships with your fellow team members. Your team will be your sounding board when you need an ear, they will give you accountability when called for and we have even seen opportunities to refer clients, exchange team members and help with locum support when in a tight spot… to give just a few examples of how the team networking adds a massive amount of value.
Graduation from year one and two gets you a spot in our Team Omega alumni community. Complete year three and you are invited to join Team Omega Platinum whereby you maintain an ongoing relationship with Lincoln and of course continued access to the very latest in cutting edge leadership resources and other special member benefits including our annual Omega Summit 3-day event. More on that later!
The Lead to Succeed program combines the experience and knowledge of Lincoln’s four directors.
The very best of The Australian Graduate School of Management MBA program, The Royal Military College Duntroon officer training school and many years of operational experience in both the military and in business. Couple this with a combined 30 years of private practice ownership of three of the most successful (and profitable) veterinary practices in Australia. Our directors have walked the talk!
The LTS program will enable you to hold your staff to account, communicate with them more effectively, build a high performing team, develop yourself through a better understanding of the high impact of emotional intelligence, know how to maintain discipline without diminishing trust, how to tap into the diversity that exists across your entire team and so much more.
Lincoln uses cutting edge learning principles to enable new skills to be reinforced over a sustained period. These foundations enable delegates to apply their knowledge and skills to rapidly changing, real life operational settings that are challenging you in your business.
Our intention for participants is to give you the skills and knowledge to lead with more ease, have your team do what you want, for them to want to do it and be engaged to keep doing it, even when you are not there. Create leverage and effective leadership redundancy – to whatever level you wish.
The objective of the LTS program is to equip delegates with a practical working knowledge of the management and leadership skills necessary to be successful in business. This process includes:
- Gaining insight into your own level of emotional intelligence and how developing this will improve your self-awareness, motivation, self-regulation and resilience.
- Learning how to successfully leverage one-on-one and team interactions.
- Benefiting from the insights of your industry peers in both a formal learning and informal social environment.
- Developing networks that will aid you well beyond the completion of your training.
- Building leadership redundancy, enabling you to step aside or switch focus to divesting or growing your practice.
- Ongoing coaching to ensure you are being supported whilst effectively applying what you learn – taking real life challenges from your Practice to apply leadership the Lincoln way.
Year 1 and Year 2
Each semester includes 2 days of face to face group work and 5 months application of the formal training, working closely with your assigned Lincoln coach in scheduled monthly calls of 60-90 minute duration – connect by phone, Skype or Zoom video meeting. Your coach is also there to offer extra support through any specific challenges as they arise. The Lincoln coaching team is often referred to as their life-line by many of our clients.
We really shift gears at this point in your leadership journey with a focus on the leadership skills you have acquired and the high caliber, engaged team you have surrounded yourself with to translate this into exceptional financial performance. Year three is in essence your masters year and comprises three trimesters we call Masters 1, 2 and 3. Trimester 1 and 2 include 2 training days with business development workshops followed by 3 separate monthly group coaching webinars.
Trimester 3 includes 2 training days at different locations : 1 day training and 1 day experiential, followed by 3 separate monthly group coaching webinars.

For your convenience, Lincoln Institute amortises the cost of each semester over 6 equal monthly instalments, starting one month prior to your first 2 day intensive event
Having completed two-day training for the semester the billing cycle continues until the completion of the 6 monthly payments for that semester. At that point, the next semester of the program automatically commences unless you wish to leave the program at that point in time.
If you wish to exit the program mid semester AND you have already participated in the two-day event for that semester we reserve the right to charge an early exit fee. This is to recoup the costs associated with the event attendance for the reasons explained above.
Attendance at the group training days is mandatory. If you are unable to attend the group day, you acknowledge that additional training will be required in order for you to be brought back up to speed with the other delegates on the program.

Although there is no requirement to lock-in for the full term of the program, out of respect for other delegates in the team, membership is a year by year commitment. If anything is not working for you we ask that you talk to us.
If Lincoln forms the view that the program is not right for you, in the interests of the entire team, Lincoln reserves the right to request that you withdraw from the program at which time you will not be required to pay any more monthly instalments and we waive the exit fee.
