What assumptions about leadership are driving your culture?

What defines teams that achieve breakthrough success? 

What drives you? What unites your team? 

What assumptions does your team hold that could be holding you back? 

Naming the problem you are trying to solve is half the battle. Get to the root of the problem before you figure out how to solve it, collectively.

Build a theory about what needs to change to solve your performance problem.

How will you know if you're making progress? Leave Summit with a shared plan for holding the team accountable for improvement.

Base Camp is about connection and challenge. You'll learn more about what makes you tick as individuals and as a team and also be challenged to examine the assumptions that may be holding you back.
Leadership Summit is about the climb. With guidance from your coach each step of the way, your team will use data to name a performance problem worth solving and build a clear theory of action to drive your improvement efforts.
