The hallmark of professional excellence is Situational leadership.  This means the ability to make the best choices for new and unique situations in the moment. This takes expertise, emotional intelligence, and balanced awareness. The degree will get you the job, but you’ll need chops to thrive. Chops are improviser’s expression of mastery.



Our programs develop you as a person, professional, or effective citizen while meeting your goals and interests. This is meaningful learning experiences, and what is meaningful is motivating.


Mutual accountability drives creativity, problem-solving and productivity. Mentors guide while your group sustains your attitude and altitude.


We use the best of both mediums: Online programs provide you the flexibility of time and place while saving travel time and costs. Face-to-face or video meetings permit complex conversations, rewarding activities, and relationship development.


Learning should be a positive learning experience. We use a variety of strategies to keep you engaged and practice your skills: Problem-based projects, role plays, case studies, gamification, and fictionalization.

Engagement means you will have a more positive learning experience, with a more long-lasting impact. Our programs are self-directed with weekly real-time meetings. We use interactive strategies in mentored small groups that meet your personal learning goals. If you’re not engaged, then you’re not learning or growing.
