"Excellent catalyst for teamwork breakthroughs. The learning that takes place is very dynamic and hard to capture in a manual. But how many training manuals do you have sitting on a shelf gathering dust? Vision Leadership has the perfect balance of business savvy and creativity to meet the needs to a changing business environment and maximize the talents of the people who can make a difference."
General Manager, REI Redmond Store
Strong leadership is a balancing act. It requires navigating current complexities, and at the same time discerning future possibilities. It demands sophisticated assessment, generative action, and an inspiring vision for the journey ahead. It's like peering through a microscope with one eye and a telescope with the otherwhile keeping the present moment on track.
We believe the most effective and fulfilling leadership is full of wisdom, insight, authenticity, and a spirit of inquiry and adventure. Driven by a sense of appreciation and guidance, this type of leadership unfolds latent potentials, and motivates others toward positive outcomes they may not yet perceive. It inspires and empowers others to overcome patterns that inhibit effectiveness. And it compels true team performance.
In short, cultivating leadership capacity and maturity is the most vital investment an organization can make.
The Art of Coaching
Experience the dynamic interplay of coaching and peak performance.
The Art of Coaching is our entry-level leadership development workshop. It takes place on a hub-and-spoke high challenge ropes course. The "challenge" would seem to be the elevation of the course. But very soon participants realize that the real challenge is to develop the skills, courage, compassion, and ability to inspire and guide others toward extraordinary results.
In this full day of sustained peak performance, participants learn coaching from every anglebeing coached, coaching others, and supporting the coaching interactions unfolding around them.
Classroom-based artificial coaching exercises and role-plays pale in comparison.

Awakening the Warrior Within
Play a Bigger Game
In this three-day program, we delve into the archetype of the Warrior, relating Warrior traits to advanced leadership. We invite you to explore the higher states that come from leading at your edge, and to bring this sense of inquiry and adventure back to your daily life, increasing your capacity to engage in clear and authentic leadership.
The Warrior archetype contains the action-oriented drives of masculine energies, as well as the relational connectedness commonly associated with the feminine. Both require courage, insight, and fortitude. We awaken the Warrior within by exploring the fields with which we interact, our own development as an individual, and our authentic connection to others.
Addressing these three domains, Awakening the Warrior Within empowers you to play a bigger game, put your higher self in the driver's seat, and build powerful partnerships based in mutuality, power, and relatedness. You will forge and strengthen relationships, enrich your team, and experience the power of grounded and decisive leadership. Awakening the Warrior Within is our gateway program to TLab (see below).
