Game-changing organizations rewrite traditional playbooks. They stand out. They often create disproportionate value relative to their size and resources. They have big dreams but know how to get things done. These organizations have a palpable "buzz" to them. They have a breakaway business model, but they also have a breakaway spirit and organizational culture.


Leaders of these game-changing organizations understand the power and importance of telling their companies' compelling stories. They are hard-edged business leaders but they also embrace what others might consider to be the "soft side" of leading: purpose, vision, and climate. They know how to integrate the hard and soft sides of leadership into a powerful formula that makes them game-changers. These leaders and their organizations are purpose-driven, performance-oriented, and principles-led. The weaving together of these three capabilities simultaneously is what helps them get and stay out in front.


The course is a well-balanced combination of theory and practice, with topics that are very relevant to the challenges that organizations face in terms of the disruptive march of technology and the massive generational and geographic switches currently emerging in both the customer and workforce.

Participant Testimonial

"As a leader, being one person, in the middle of a huge company, thinking about changing the whole game sounds impossible. When you realize that other people in other companies have the same challenge, it becomes clear that it is, in fact, an opportunity. In this program, I've learned a lot about how to seize the opportunity, with good examples, techniques and interactions with other peers."-Fausto Neri V.
