3 CORE COMPONENTS OF THE LEADER COMMUNITY
Membership consists of a comprehensive leadership development program that integrates three core elements: Executive coaching with a Personal Leadership Advisor, Disruptive Development Experiences, and consulting and networking opportunities in a high-caliber, high-trust peer community. All integrated and applied for significant real-world impact at work.
Each member develops a strong relationship with his or her Personal Leadership Advisor (PLA) who facilitates a transformative experience by serving as the member’s executive coach, guide, and Peer Consulting Group leader. The PLA works with the member to craft an annual plan to include programs, events and relationships to help him or her achieve their current year’s goals. Institute PLAs are master coaches and advisors with a Ph.D. or M.B.A. and 15-20 years of experience working with C-suite executives.
The core design principle for Institute programs is that accelerated, or step-change, development does not occur without some catalytic experience. Programs thus aim to shake leaders out of their typical day-to-day experience, exposing them to big and new ideas, engaging them in deep thinking about their personal and business opportunities at this complex time in history, and activating them to tackle those opportunities with purpose and courage, all with the support of a high-trust peer cohort that will continue on as a resource throughout the year.
Leadership development is supported through interactions with a diverse array of other peers and experts who both challenge and support leaders to expand their capacity to think, feel and act with intention and impact. Each member of the Leadership Community is provided with a network of committed members invested in one another’s success. The cohort you join in your Base Camp Program becomes your ongoing Peer Consulting Group, ensuring sustained growth and real-world impact. Members also participate in Community Networking Events throughout the year
Members can choose from either a Foundational or an Intensive development experience during their first year. Both include the core components described above. The Foundational Experience enables the member to disrupt their ingrained ways of doing things and develop new behaviors, mindsets, and networks. The Intensive Experience requires an additional level of time commitment, and enables a transformative change in the member’s self-awareness, empathy, complexity of thinking, courage and purpose. In addition to attending two more residency workshops, Intensive Experience participants work closely within smaller groups to assist one another with achieving an audacious business goal at their companies.
