They are all too long. Hard Knocks is too cute. Smooth Manager sounds like a pimp. Boss sounds like a middle manager at a regulated public utility in 1972. Modern usually means "not modern." Sorry if I am bashing. But these don't sound like your ideas. They sound like the ideas of 26 yr olds who were trying too hard. You should be straightforward but also emphasize what I assume will be a different approach from most of the recycled garbage that people put out. I will think of names. But The Linetix Leadership Development Series is better than the five you have.

1. Kinetix Leadership Development Series
2. Be like Water - you seem to have a jeet kun do approach in your blog, and it challenges conventional thinking.
3. Flex Your Style - our COO always emphasizes the need to adapt your own approach to get things done , rather than trying make everyone else change to fit your singular approach.
4. Is Anyone Following You? - or It Isn't About You (didn't you write that once?) - leadership dev isn't about doing things in a vacuum. It's about learning to influence and execute regardless of title or hierarchy.

So maybe those are no good either. But I think they are closer than your original 5. Good luck.

I don't love any of them. For some reason military themes feel right. When I think of people who know leadership, creating a sense of urgency, developing talent, adapting to change, utilizing discipline and being persistent, I think military. How about Special Ops: Leadership Development on the Corporate Battle Field?

I had to vote for Smooth Manager. Just because the Alien Ant Farm version of smooth criminal needs to play during the intro.

Without the song it is a little awkward. With the song it is brilliant.
