How We Do It:

It begins with the premise that leadership isn't simply about doing the things that great leaders do, but rather about becoming the kind of person who does the things that great leaders do.

"It might sound cliche, but I wouldn't change a thing! This experience was legendary, and I sincerely feel like it has set me up for success!"

Formal Instruction

"It was perfect. Our instructor's authenticity, honesty, insight and humor really made learning fun and enjoyable."

-  Expansive LeadershipTrainee

This is where the magic really happens.

Each session, trainees are assigned a new accountability partner who they will support and be supported by for the next 2 weeks.

In session, trainees learn to support and coach each other. This builds the foundation for lasting relationships, cooperation and collaboration.

Peer to Peer Support and Collaboration

Sink or swim doesn't work. 

When learning new concepts, leaders need support and reinforcement. 

Each trainee receives two (or more) individual coaching sessions to help them build self-awareness, resilience, systems thinking skills and a consistent leadership practice.

Expert Coaching

"I enjoyed it immensely, more than I imagined I would. It was great to be able to share issues with other team leaders in a friendly and constructive manner and then to jointly develop strategies."

-  Expansive LeadershipTrainee

Research shows that one-and-done style training programs don't lead to lasting transformation.

Our training occurs over several weeks. 

Formal training weeks are interspersed with reflection and homework weeks.

This allows lessons to land for the long-term.

Multi-week Duration

Participants who appear at all formal training sessions and complete all homework and 1:1 coaching sessions may apply to become Certified Expansive Leaders.
