On-the-Job Learning for Business Owners, Entrepreneurs and Managers

Business owners, entrepreneurs and managers want to build high performance cultures, but most are unsure of how to begin. We built our collaborative leadership and management development programs on our 25 years of developing and coaching the most successful executives and managers within the best workplace universities and cultures.

Unlike university leadership programs built on theory alone, we empower business owners, CEOs and managers through a collaborative learning model. In small groups, participants learn and develop skills required of their roles by applying the lessons within their companies and learning from each other.

Working collaboratively in your learning team, you will focus on practical solutions to sticky leadership challenges people are facing and figure out why their current solutions are not working. The skills and case studies are practical, relevant and they have just enough theory to provide context.

Whether applying for a leadership development learning team designed for CEOs, senior leaders or managers, it is right for you if you are ready and willing to:

    • Face, head on, your own real and current leadership challenges and work through them collaboratively with others doing the same;
    • close the gap between what books tell you to do and how your situation actually plays out; and
    • step out of your comfort zone and flex your leadership practice.

Attendance is limited to a very small, select group – no more than 20 people. If you are interested, please contact us for a curriculum and schedule.
