Co-Active Leadership Program

Format and Duration: 10-Month Program
Consisting of four 6-day residential retreats (roughly 2.5 months apart) connected in between virtually with weekly calls, independent projects and required reading ICF CCE Units: 182.0

It’s one thing to attend leadership training classes. It’s another to fully live into intensive, world-class leadership experiences where you and others witness your leadership evolving. The Co-Active Leadership Program is a powerful, experiential leadership training program that includes 4 residential retreats held over a 10-month period, connected virtually in-between with weekly calls, assignments and required reading. Each group travels their journey together with the same small group of 20-25 other participants.

You will be stretched, challenged, sometimes uncomfortable, but absolutely proud at your growth when you graduate the program. This immersive experience propels participants to understand and access their unique strengths and personal power by participating in adventure-based activities, interactive exercises, spirited dialogue, challenges that stretch you beyond your comfort zone, and other group processes. It will forever change your experience of life, and how you be in relationship to your world, others, and yourself.


The Experience

Each retreat builds upon the other, with opportunities to practice what was learned in-between retreats. Participation in the 10-month Co-Active Leadership Program requires attendance at all 4 residential retreats, completion of homework projects, and participation in regular conference calls (at least biweekly). With fewer than 25 peers in each group, prepare to be stretched, challenged, and supported on your leadership journey.

You’ll foster lifelong leadership skills and grow into your full potential as a leader, through the development of an international community of peers and leaders who grow and learn together through a variety of shared experiences.

Prior Leadership Program attendees have included individuals from a wide variety of backgrounds, including coaches, consultants, executives, managers, entrepreneurs, engineers, human resources/organizational development professionals, artists, writers, medical professionals, therapists, community leaders, celebrities, and many others. Many Leadership Program graduates remain friends, mentors, and peers for life.
