A 12-week exploration of leadership

Your Leadership Journey is a leadership development program that empowers and equips aspiring and emerging leaders with the abilities to make the difference you desire in business and in life.

Designed in a unique leader-to-leader format, we bring together a group of like-minded peers to work as a collective with a mix of group, peer-to-peer, and individual coaching sessions.

Over the course of 12 weeks, we will explore leadership together: What does being a leader mean to you? What really matters to you as a person? What are your defining attributes as a leader? How will you show up authentically and with conviction to make a difference with the kind of impact you know you can make?

Our goal is to help you grow as a leader, gain meaningful insights that help you take the next steps in your leadership journey, and walk away with renewed energy and confidence in your ability to lead anywhere in your life.
