Below is a simple message you can send to your boss.
Can I expense a leadership development training course this year? I’ve been researching some different ways I could improve my leadership style and deliver even better results with my team. I found out about Teamsmith through a friend. I did some homework and think it could be compelling. The total cost is about $50/month or $420/year up front. I can cancel any time. You can read more on their site at https://teamsmith.co or check out this short document that covers their offering. Let me know if it’s ok to expense this or if you would like to discuss? Thank you!
