Key differentiators of the Juicy Life Leader Academy to other leadership programs are:
1. Instead of abstract theories about leaderSHIP, YOU - the individual leader - and YOUR HAPPINESS are the focus of the Juicy Life Leader Academy's program. Why? Because one of the foundations of our philosophy is: "Happy leaders are better leaders."
2. Instead of linear old school ways of teaching, the curriculum is designed for circular learning, which utilizes the newest insights about what the human brain needs to learn - e.g. repetition, multiple different connection points inside big frameworks and diversity of perspectives towards the same focus - and how the brain can rewire itself for long term sustainable performance rather than short term performance bursts.
3. Instead of supporting the patriarchial institutions that treat people as "human capital" or "human assets" and our planet Earth's resources as expendable resources, the Juicy Life Leader Academy teaches you how to dismantle the patriarchy and its conditioning in your own brain. Instead of just "functioning better without burn out" and perpetuating an outdated system from the past, you will be empowered to be a future-fit leader creating a post-patriarchal new economy together with a community of diverse leaders from around the world.
4. Instead of just teaching how to change strategies and better your professional performance, the Juicy Life Leader Academy provides a framework and content that enables deep personal transformation that impacts how you think, feel and act in all areas of your life. You learn how to lead a 'juicy life'!
5. Instead of being course based with a specific start date and end date, the Juicy Life Leader Academy is designed as an 'evergreen' membership model where you are connected with a growing global community of members that offer the potential of a life long immersive learning. Just as you might go to a gym for you physical fitness, you join the Juicy Life Leader Academy to train and maintain your "future-fitness" living on the edge of evolutionary expansion into the unknown. Isn't that exhilarating?
Here are some past clients who have completed content from the Juicy Life Leader Academy working with Sylvia Becker-Hill in different forms:
"I had a classic mid-life crisis questioning everything: My position in our company, my marriage, my life-style... I felt low on energy, close to depressed and missed my own mojo and smile... after working with Sylvia for about nine months all that had changed: I expanded my leadership position inside the company. I stepped into team-development stratigically and pro-actively. I rekindled my marriage. I spend more time with my teenage sons. My health was better. Even my doctor was impressed and took me off some medicine! Overall I enjoyed my life again and felt my mojo was back. The biggest gift: I didn't know how mean and harsh I had been to my self! I stopped that and - literally! - fell in love with myself! What a gift! That was over eight years ago and has not vanished!"
"I had for the past six years before working with Sylvia a difficult role: I was shutting down branches of our corporation and fired over the years thousands of people. To be able to do that, I had to close my heart and not be compassionate with all those fates... That nearly cost me my marriage and the connection to my children! I could not do my job 12 hours a day and then come home and suddenly be all 'kumbaja'! I remember I asked Sylvia during our first meeting to help me with two things: Open my heart again so I can save my marriage and family plus help me change my image and reputation inside my company. I had gotton a new role, yet my reputation preceeded me. Everywhere I went, I triggered fear and rumors of lay-offs... I'm happy to say in less than a year I was able to accomplish both!"
"I had to pass an assessment center to jump one hierarchy level inside our company. The problem was, I had failed it a few years prior and I was terrified to fail again and to disappoint my superiors, my wife and not being able to get the CEO position I had been planned for. Long story short: Thanks to Sylvia I passed the assessment, became CEO and worked with her as my coach on my side for three years. She helped me with conflicts inside my leadership team, made me work out regularly and establish healthy habits around water intake, time with my family and sleep. I reduced my inner stress level substantially eventhough the company went through a very challenging time with several real disasters! I learned a lot about communication, managing myself and how I show up to others and more. The positive ripple effects on me, my leadership, my company's results and team is too big to list."
How fast you achieve your desired results depends on many factors: How much self-development work you have done before you join the Juicy Life Leader Academy, your level of maturity, your emotional, psychological and mental health and fitness level, your commitment, your engagement level with the content and with Sylvia and other members... everyone's learning journey is unique. So we can't tell you how long it will take you to produce these sort of results as described above.
Like a gym which offers the space to work-out and the tools and machines and support to do so, if gym members don't come to the gym and use all that is offered, hoping for results is just wishful thinking!
What we do can guarantee is content that is top quality,science based, state of the art and at the edge of current Zeitgeist and evolutionary trends, combined with top quality of delivery, plus Sylvia's ongoing passion for your growth, success and happiness.
The Juicy Life Leader Academy's curriculum roll-out is designed to be easily understandable and easily integratable for hard working professionals with fulltime jobs and families. Each month the first week contains new content of about 30 -45 min and then implementation depends on the topic - it will range from 1 min to 10 min per day. Some weeks when you join the office hours to get questions answered or receive coaching live or watch an office hours replay... it will take up to 90 minutes.
To summarize: an average of one hour a week for your evolution as a leader seemed doable for all the international participants we interviewed after the Juicy Life Leader Conference in summer 2020 when we collected the data for the design of the academy.
The level of tech savvyness required to make the most out of your membership is comparable to other professional leadership programs and the averadge professional job in the age of online working.

Accountability manifests when focus is combined with publicly stated commitment.

All Office Hours get recorded and the replay video is made available 48 hours later on the dashboard. You can watch these replays whenever it suits you. Including the archieved ones before you joined the academy!
That is wonderful! And as a member of the Juicy Life Leader Academy you get as part of the bonus package 10% off of any coaching package you might book with Sylvia outside the Juicy Life Leader Academy!
Just reach out via email at email@example.com and explain what your goal is you're pursuing with the coaching and if you are seeking a "one off single session" which are only available for past clients and academy members or if you seek a longer customized coaching engagements or a "coaching + art" package which in the end will lead to you owning a commissioned painting from Sylvia that holds and radiates the energetic esence and meaning of your coaching transformation!

The Juicy Life Leader Academy - short "JLLA" - is designed with the intention to create a highly focused learning community: Which means all members are working on the same content being delivered in every given month.
We also have the mission to create a global movement of evolved leaders who create an inclusive world that works for everyone. The movement and the transformation need time to grow and to happen.
"Open enrollment" supports that intention. It means the academy has not like a course or a semester a fixed start day and a fixed end day! New members can join any time!
Every new member has to go through the "Orientation Module", which is full of valuable information and checklists to set you up for success in the JLLA! After going through the orientation module new members go into the module for that current month.
Previous months/modules are all available too! Some advanced modules might require going through a specific module from the archive in order to understand a current module better and deeper.
You can meet your friends and collegues you enroll live during the bi-weekly office hours on Zoom and inside the networking lounge, a private Facebook group.
Plus one to one or inside small group accountability circles that are encouraged.
Developing new habits takes time. To create lasting change and new hard wired neurocircuits it needs around 90 days of focused repetition! We want you to be successful. Plus some people have a pattern of self-doubt and buyer's remorse which shows up as inner negative self-talk that tries to talk them out of their goals and commitments.
To protect you from that we recommend a minimum enrollment time of 3 months. That's enough time to get fully orientated, into a rhythm with all the parts of the academy and a taste of the content, and potentially experience enough changes and results to evaluate if you're in the right place. Sylvia's biggest clients' success stories worked with her for 12 to 24 sometimes 36 months.
Our goal is to exceed your expectations and become your number one inspiration destination for your leadership growth and personal transformation. Becoming a Juicy Life Leader and gaining mastery with matter, relationships and oneself ( see curriculum page!) takes time and effort!
