It’s not about skills training.

This program is a series of conversations and experiences. The conversations clarify what leadership involves and how to lead. Then you experience leading and collaborating effectively, in practice.

How It Works

How Leaders Are Forged

You could characterize The Being An Extraordinary Leader program as a leadership laboratory. It employs a new science of leadership, based on the study of ontology and phenomenology. This roughly translates into the study of “who you are being”.

You’ll discover that real leadership does not rely on your position, title, money, or any of the personality traits often attributed to leaders. You’ll learn how to define leadership as a repeatable construct.

In this program, conventional ways of thinking are challenged and new ways of thinking emerge. The process results in your exercising leadership effectively as your natural self-expression.

Program Structure

In-Person Program

The program consists of 2 three-day working sessions, separated by 4 to 8 weeks. Sessions are accompanied by one-on-one coaching. To maximize the opportunity for cross-disciplinary-learning, there are three group webinars/coaching sessions with the other participants.

Additionally, you receive one-on-one coaching on a personal leadership initiative, “something big”. This work helps you embody what leadership looks like (on-the-court) as you define and advance your initiative in previously unimaginable ways.

Online Program

The online program has the equivalent of seven online workshop days spread over approximately three months. There is a pre-program coaching session to help tailor the Being an Exceptional Leader program to fit your needs. Additionally, coaching on how to implement the distinctions from the program into “real life” and additional 1-on-1 video coaching is provided upon request.

Note: There are approximately 185 pages of reading and related study assignments to be completed prior to Day #1

Our Promise

We promise you will leave this program being a leader and exercising leadership effectively as your natural self-expression.

Yes, this is a business-to-business leadership development program. Participation is restricted to businesspeople working in organizations (this is not a “personal development” program). Please speak with one of our facilitators should you have any further questions on this topic.

What is Ontology and how does it fit into this program?2020-02-19T14:34:37+00:00

Ontology is the study of the nature of being and becoming. In this program, your way of being is the source of your behaviours. Rather than wrestling with what skill to use when, you focus on your ways of being.

What is Phenomenology and how does it apply?2020-02-19T14:36:05+00:00

Phenomenology is the study of the development of consciousness and self-awareness. Consciously choosing your ways of being is what enables the practice of leadership.

Who created the Being a Leader™ Program?2020-02-19T16:54:02+00:00

The Being A Leader and the Effective Exercise of Leadership Program was developed by Dr. Michael Jensen, Werner H. Erhard, Steve Zaffron and Dr. Jeri Echeverria. Learn about the authors.

What is the program curriculum?2020-02-19T14:39:40+00:00

The program is divided into three parts.

Part One defines the four fundamental elements for Being a Leader and the Effective Exercise of Leadership: integrity, authenticity, being given to something bigger than oneself and being cause in the matter.
Part Two defines the structure or contextual framework of leadership, including linguistic abstractions, phenomena, domains and terms.
Part Three outlines the ontological (functional and perceptual) constraints of leadership.
