The Voyager Program

Transformational learning tailored for your organization’s top talent

River Run by Jim McManus, Mobius Featured Artist

Take your leaders on an extraordinary journey

Businesses need leaders who are purposeful and transformational. People who can impact their organizations and the world. Leaders who can face our uncertain world and disrupted industries with a steady hand, an inspiring vision, a clear strategy, an agility to adapt, and an authentic presence that holds diverse and virtual workplaces together. Business schools don’t prepare leaders to play this role. By and large, executive education programs don’t either.

We know that knowledge and skills can only take you so far. For experienced leaders to grow, they need respectful challenges to their assumptions, their modes of operation, their blind spots. Sometimes they need help to embrace their greatness. We also know that hypothetical, general examples don’t focus on the specific leadership characteristics that your organization needs to cultivate right now to achieve your business imperatives. Voyager is co-designed with you to reinforce your company’s values and distinctive ethos while fostering the deep shifts your executives need to make to lead your organization into the future.

“The ‘voyage’ is a timeless motif for self-discovery and fulfilling your potential, both as a person and as a leader. As Voyagers we live in a state of paradox. We need audacity andhumility. The hunger to grow and acceptance of where we are now. The urgency to act and the patience to let things ripen.”

~ ERICA ARIEL FOX, WINNING FROM WITHIN®

Transformational learning led by world-class faculty

  • A customized learning program co-designed with you for your top talent and closely linked to your organization’s values, vision, and business imperatives
  • The only leadership program available based on the New York Times best-selling leadership book Winning From Within, created by Erica Ariel Fox, the global thought leader who wrote the book and developed the proprietary Winning From Within® methodology. Led by the only faculty in the world trained by Erica.
  • A strong focus on experiential learning, drawing on a wide set of “right-brain” modalities that bring insights to life and embed learning over time
  • A 3-4 day immersive workshop format that can stand alone, or can be coupled with small group coaching, digital learning or individual development
  • One-on-one expert coaching for each participant, as well as partner and group exercises, breakout groups, team dialogues, and very little lecture
  • Cohorts of between 12-24 people, with a high faculty-to-participant ratio
  • Typically delivered to your top 100-300 senior leaders

“Winning from Within offers a powerful and practical method for character development, a missing link in leadership development that is increasingly essential for new and seasoned executives alike.”

~ AMY C. EDMONDSON, NOVARTIS PROFESSOR OR LEADERSHIP AND MANAGEMENT, HARVARD BUSINESS SCHOOL

Winning From Within: The Big Four

A low Warrior fails to prioritize, lacks execution focus and cannot demonstrate resilience

A high Lover places harmony above other considerations

A high Thinker only sees risks and cannot demonstrate cognitive flexibility

A low Dreamer cannot ignite other’s imaginations or generate followership

“In this appealingly personal, professional, and practical approach, Fox brings the world of leadership to a whole new level, by including the missing dimension, the ‘inner game’: What is the agenda you are driving, and what is the agenda that is driving you?”

~ ROBERT KEGAN AND LISA LAHEY

Close the Performance Gap

Through years of action research and application of new ideas to real world problems, we discovered a gulf between what people know they should say and do—their potential to lead successfully—and what they actually do in practice. This creates a leadership gap between an optimal response in any given situation and their current reaction. We call this phenomenon The Performance Gap®. Real time success requires a combination of what you have learned to do and say on the outside with what you think, feel and experience on the inside. The Voyager program equips leaders to close that gap.
