Program Overview

Practice state-of-the-art experiential simulation with physiological and behavioral measures, self-assessment, executive coaching and peer discussions, and discover how best to motivate, influence and manage relationships across your organization.

  • Explore workplace courage and behaviors that are difficult to adopt, but crucial to organizational success.
  • Adapt and grow as a leader through an experiential leadership lab approach that delivers a highly individualized, personalized self-discovery journey.
  • Work on your own challenging influence situations at work, and get input from others about best practices and next steps.
  • Build skills around issue framing, emotion management, storytelling and other critical aspects of successful persuasion.

People can accumulate lots of sophisticated tools (frameworks, formulas, findings and fact patterns) and know which tools are useful for addressing which kinds of managerial problems, but ultimately this won’t be worth much if they don’t have the courage to use those tools when the time arises.
