A Program for Learning How to Teach Yourself
to Become the Leader You Aspire to Be"
The BeyondLeadership Program
The finest leaders in history have struck out on their own, inventing
a leadership style and practice well suited to their temperament and their
unique situations. While we might become informed by studying these leaders,
we cannot hope to succeed as a leader by simply adopting their practices.
If we are to become powerful leaders, we must engage in the entrepreneurial
invention that has supported every great leader's practice. To do otherwise
is following, not leading.
BeyondLeadership is an experiential leadership-development program
intended to evoke the deep learning, lasting insights, and profound lessons
upon which an authentic leadership practice is based.
We designed BeyondLeadership to help individuals discover how
to teach themselves what they need to become the leader they aspire to
be. Rather than learning to follow others' models of leadership, participants
investigate their own behavior patterns. By discovering how they succeed
and fail in their own situations, they begin to learn the lessons that
grow into the ability to more consciously employ their skills, especially
in those moments when different choices are needed.
BeyondLeadership focuses attention at expanding real maturity
-- the ability to acknowledge and accept the impact of self, other, and
context -- and learn how to more effectively cope with the key crises punctuating
every leader's career: the identity, relationship, and context crises.
BeyondLeadership brings a deeper focus on acknowledging and accepting
the present, usually less than ideal, organizational environment, while
developing skills for leveraging each organization’s useful features. The
result is not deeply dissatisfied managers, but leaders capable of working
with the real-world difficulties present within even the most productive
and mature organizations.
Not a Week’s Workshop, But an Introduction to a
A formal preparation and follow-up program bounds the week-long BeyondLeadership
residential experience. We help sponsors align their objectives with their
organizations’ overall goals for participating in the program. We advise
them in selecting candidates and preparing participants to make the most
of their BeyondLeadership experience. BeyondLeadership faculty
helps sponsors and participants develop in-house networks to support the
continued application and integration of key learning and insights into
their organizations’ day-to-day operations.
A group of practicing leaders and experienced practitioners advise BeyondLeadership.
Each appreciates the potential value from such experiences, actively participates
in designing and renewing this experience, and takes a personal responsibility
to spread these possibilities to a wider audience.
