No lectures, no tests, no grades – this is the hub for explorative leaders to connect, collaborate, and grow. Join a dynamic, family-like community who will challenge and support you to take your leadership to the next level and make your mark.

WHAT WILL I GET OUT OF THE PROGRAM?
Strengthened sense of creativity, collaborative approaches, and leadership awareness
Improved ability to give and receive feedback
Greater resilience in times of change and complexity
Close-knit community of local Rome-based creative leaders offering dialogue, support, and opportunities for co-creation
60+ innovation and creativity tools to use with teams and organizations for tangible impact
The program comprises two core elements: leadership and innovation. Develop yourself as a leader while building your innovation skills as you apply them while solving a global challenge in the Rome context.
You’ll attend three in-person modules in Rome. Each module is intense and immersive. Long days of exploration, creation, and prototyping allow you to dedicate serious time to advance your leadership and innovation ability.
In between each module, you’ll return to your organization and put the tools and skills you learned into practice, further developing your capabilities in your specific work context.
Discover new territory, envision bigger and more boldly, analyze critically, and lead with greater awareness and confidence as you dive deep into the program’s two pillars: Quest, your leadership journey, and Challenge, your innovation stories.
Quest is your leadership journey in personal mastery. Through hands-on workshops, connect with your passion and purpose, discover and articulate your vision, and learn to assemble and guide diverse teams. You also get 8 private sessions with a leadership coach who helps explore your individual gifts and learning edges to access and empower your leadership qualities.
Challenge is your storytellingbox where you learn and practice applying innovation tools to grow your professional mastery. Collaborate in teams of three to develop solutions to a local Rome challenge while stretching your leadership muscles in an environment where it’s safe to fail. Engage with the local ecosystem to design a project with the potential to make an impact.
