⇒ Standard or Customized Leadership Program

Conducted at your organization, we offer three standard options: a one-day, a two-day Meta-Leadership training program, and a two-hour executive level briefing program.

  • A one-day program will offer the core concepts of Meta-Leadership, an in-depth discussion of how to apply the dimensions of Meta-Leadership, and our pragmatic multi-stakeholder negotiation and problem solving method.
  • Want to go deeper? A two-day program offers the day-one program plus swarm leadership, and a case study discussion and break-out session. The case study is chosen based on best fit to your organization and the challenges it faces.
  • We also offer a two-hour program designed specifically for high-level executives who have limited time.
