Apply now to be a part of our inaugural cohort, beginning in February, 2022


Leadership of Self

          The first person you lead is yourself. This begins with knowing yourself, strengths, values and your “why”. Here we learn and practice strategies for identifying and overcoming internal barriers to success while building the skill of self confidence and resilience. 

Leadership of Others

          Personally and professionally, leaders must be able to connect with others, to communicate, form healthy relationships and collaborations. Here there will be an emphasis on emotional intelligence, effective communication, team building, productive approaches to conflict and how our multicultural backgrounds make us uniquely suited towards creating psychological safety in the workplace.

Leadership in Society

          In the final module we will explore the larger changes we want to affect in our communities, places of work and society at large. Leadership does not require a title or formal role and each of us has a calling. Some of the themes we will engage with are entrepreneurship, political and civic engagement and the power of imagination , strategic thinking and planning in envisioning and creating the future we want.
