Expand your team's leadership skills through experiential learning
and foundational building blocks.
Reduce turnover and maximize productivity by developing your leaders.
Leadership Canvas is a 12-month leadership development program designed for current and aspiring leaders.

It is based upon:

🌟 Human Behavior
🌟 Organizational Psychology
🌟 Current Leadership Research

Leadership Canvas is based on the universal capacity for CREATIVITY!

Why does Leadership Canvas work?
We're so glad you asked! This program works because it is designed with the following research-based assertions.
  • People learn and retain information best through creativity, play, and experiential learning.
  • Learning in small doses (a.k.a. Building Blocks) increases retention and likelihood of turning learned skills into sustained behavior.
  • Addressing mindset and behavioral habits is just as important as building skillsets.

Here are some eye-opening stats:

👉 58% of workers said they left companies because of the lack of growth opportunities. (Randstand)

👉 75% of employees who voluntarily leave, quit their bosses, not their jobs. (Roger Herman)

👉 6 months is the average replacement cost of a salaried employee is six to nine months’ salary. (SHRM)

Our program is designed ideally for a 12-month engagement, which is broken down into 6-Building Blocks, delivered in 3-hour workshops every other month.

The months in between, we gather for a one (1) hour roundtable coaching discussion to turn what was learned into habit.

*We do offer individual Building Blocks, but find developing leadership skills consistently over time generates lasting results and embeds itself in your company's culture.
