About the course

Our immersive Leadership Experience program empowers your leaders to confront tomorrow’s leadership challenges, condensing years of learning into days.

It normally takes ten years of bitter experience in the field for a leader to acquire the knowledge contained in this program. Thanks to our extensive research findings, you have the opportunity to condense this learning into just a few days. You will learn key lessons on your own terms and practice your responses to situations in a safe environment. By experiencing some of the critical incidents that you’re likely to face as a leader, you’ll be equipped and supported to deal with them more effectively as they arise.

A few of the situations you’ll encounter include:

  • Stepping up to take responsibility and to lead

  • Making decisions within uncertain, ambiguous contexts

  • Delivering results through and with others

  • Handling difficult conversations

  • Managing stress and recovery

This experience is the ultimate test run, allowing you to assess your readiness for leadership and prepare for likely challenges. It's not for the faint of heart, but in the future, when it really matters, you'll know what to do.

Program overview

In these turbulent times, organizations need leaders who are prepared for the unexpected. Based on Ashridge research into what leaders wish they had known 10 years ago, this immersive program launches participants into the future, encountering the critical events that leaders say have shaped their careers. Our research indicates that facing these challenges now and developing the strategies to cope with them builds the necessary muscle memory to help high-potentials lead in the future. Participants will receive extensive feedback to develop their self-awareness and selfmanagement capacities, and will learn about leading in ambiguous and uncertain contexts.

Participant outcomes

As a participant, you will:

  • Develop your confidence to step up into challenging leadership situations and make decisions within an uncertain and ambiguous environment
  • Handle difcult and emotional conversations with confidence, selfawareness, and emotional intelligence
  • Efectively manage your own stress, resilience, and recovery

Organizational outcomes

Our research has found that people learn best when they feel stretched, but they also need to feel equipped to take on the challenge. This is exactly what we aim to do. Participants will return to work capable of managing difcult situations, be more self-aware, and be able to lead and make decisions in ambiguous and volatile contex

Who should attend

High-potential managers or specialists possibly on a fast-track towards greater leadership responsibility. They are looking to accelerate their leadership growth by several years, and are intrigued by the idea of a uniquely immersive simulation that will deliberately place them under carefully measured stress. This program is not for the faint hearted, but in the future, when it really matters, participants will be far better equipped to respond to uncertain and volatile environments

matters, participants will be far better equipped to respond to uncertain and volatile environments.

Course reviews

Nadezhda G., Course Participant

5.0
Course quality: excellent
Instructors: excellent
Other (e.g. materials, infrastructure): excellent
Primary takeaway: There are many takeaways as the course was very productive and was full of big and small life-hacks. It was about leadership and company strategy and helicopter view and how is better to track own success and also about people leadership. It's the best course in my life.
Things to improve: it's already the best!
