Mastering Leadership Principles

Our programs integrate indoor and outdoor classroom and experiential learning, contemplative practices, and group dialogue to help you master three authentic leadership principles:
  • Self: Understanding your inner life, thought patterns, and shadow motivations
  • Relationships: Relating to others with greater compassion, empathy, and respect
  • Lifestyle: Producing energy, resilience, and focus to meet leadership challenges

With mastery now comes opportunity.

  • Putting new knowledge to work: Programs help you peel back the layers of who you are, discover your purpose and become an effective authentic leader who can unite people around a common set of values and purpose.
  • Teaming with the best: Through extensive life and professional experience our faculty live by the principles of authentic leadership. Now their purpose is to share what they've learned with you. Together you'll contemplate the complexity and challenges of organizations and leadership.

Leaders from around the world come to The Leadership Center to join in the energizing of a new era of leaders. To learn more about our programs or customize your own, email
