Great leaders seek out experiences that take them out of the familiar and help them see themselves differently

As a successful leader, you have likely completed a diverse menu of classes, trainings and workshops. For seasoned professionals, getting to the next level is not about skill development or competence, but mastering the art of leadership. This capability is far more elusive and demands an innovative approach.

By engaging in unfamiliar experiences, you can unlock the single greatest asset you have for becoming a more effective leader: new insights. Instead of listening to a lecture on leading through crisis, travel to the Johnson Space Center and re-live the triumphant return of Apollo 13. Instead of talking about coaching, be coached in such sports as Paralympic volleyball and hear directly from athletes and sports scientists at the U.S. Olympic Training Center.

Take part in rich conversation about the nuances of strategy, communication, creating high performing teams and cultures, and navigating rapid change. Through the power of personal discovery, these insights become more profound and lasting. See opportunities and challenges differently and be inspired to act.
