Why This Workshop Is Different


  • It's about preparing emerging and current leaders for the future and staying ahead of the curve – it’s not about playing “catch up” or being a “charm school.”

  • Participants pair up with an “accountability buddy” for the entire workshop so they can learn from each other during the it and leave the workshop having built at least one new, trusted connection.

  • It's co-facilitated by a senior executive with significant C-Suite experience and a certified executive coach, both of whom provide participants with real world, hands-on experience and a personal touch.

  • Outcomes are measured through pre- and post- program feedback using the proprietary Leaders With Courage 360 Assessment

  • We provide a team of vetted, certified executive coaches with expertise in mentoring and interpreting assessments to advise and counsel participants and help them grow their leadership skills.

  • Content includes segments on culture, listening, delegation, challenging the status quo, and building a high-performing team.
