Guiding principles

Concise lectures and presentations introduce you to key concepts and frameworks that deepen the central process of learning from experience.

Whether you’re in the classroom with faculty, debriefing with a coach or up in the mountains with peers, you’ll be applying these guiding principles: undergo deep experiential learning, develop self-awareness and practice “change begins with me”.

Learning in teams

Team dynamics are the core focus of this program and the building blocks of organizations and businesses, so most of your learning happens in small and larger teams.

Integrated approach to coaching

Opening up to coaches, faculty and peers, you’ll experiment with different team leadership situations. You’ll benefit from one-on-one and team coaching. As you progress, you refine your self-awareness, understand others better and grasp what happens below the surface, when teams interact. You develop a clear idea of how you can leverage your personality and experience to become a more authentic and effective leader.
