Working remotely is a challenge for us all—and our work focuses on specific challenges of management in a world where both team and one-on-one meetings are largely (possibly exclusively) conducted online.


Our programs are designed to help rising managers and emerging leaders develop their skills the following areas:

  • Getting work done as a remote team

  • Remote performance management 

  • High-performance remote meetings 

  • Remote decision-making 


The curriculum is tailored to each client's organization, with carefully calibrated adjustments based on length of tenure (and background) of each group of learners. This will include generating case studies and "stories" that are drawn directly from relevant experiences within a given sector or organization.

These customizations are layered on top of a core content curriculum that covers three key areas of development as below. 


Please contact us to discuss specific curriculum requirements for your organization.


Connecting leaders to authenticity and purpose

  • The importance of authentic purpose; connecting work with personal values


  • Migrating from pure technical skills to strategic skills—and ultimately to leadership skills​


  • The wide variety of relationships that a leader needs to build, maintain and leverage within and outside the organization​


  • Behaviors in team and group situations that respect and honor the requirements of co-workers and colleagues 

  • Identifying ​"triggers" (in self and others) and the process of reframing triggering incidents as an opportunity for partnership

  • The importance of self-care and deploying basic mindfulness techniques to promote and maintain personal wellness and resilience


Achieving shared goals working with a wide range of personality types and skill levels 

  • Identify the dynamics that make up high-performing teams

  • Develop behaviors and techniques for leading when people don't want to follow (“leadership without a title”)

  • How purpose leads to relevance—and how a leader needs to be the most relevant person in the room

  • Finding the balance between push-back / disagreement and the need for commitment to a shared path


  • Managing challenging conversations

  • The importance of acting as a catalyst and change agent who can "build tribes" around commonly shared problem-sets

  • Develop and clearly express a personal leadership philosophy ("clarity of vision") 


Fluency in the language of business: finance and strategy

In the area of technical ("hard") skills we focus on two critical areas: finance and strategy. Interventions are tailored to experience-level as follows:


Financial literacy (early / mid-level): Lack of financial literacy is a common cause of potential leaders not reaching the executive level


Financial fluency (senior level): Senior leaders need to achieve a higher level of comfort with enterprise-level finance. In this way they are able to fully participate in strategic dialogues across the enterprise.


Business strategy (early / mid-level): Mid-level leaders represent the "engine room" of any organization. They lead the implementation of strategy from above, and are responsible for operationalizing change.


Business strategy (senior level): At the "leader of leaders" level, individuals will be involved in co-creating strategic direction for the company and mobilizing the organization in pursuit of execution. Leaders need to develop the skills to influence others (peers, subordinates and top-level management) to "get on board." Only in this way can strategy be transformed into successful action.


Learn Interactive has attracted a truly extraordinary roster of world-renowned guest faculty, to complement the core curriculum with unique and high-impact workshops. Each of these interventions has been designed to approach leadership through a variety of lenses, from social anthropology to movement and the language of the body. Please contact us for more details.


A deep understanding of human motivation and desire can help senior leaders develop a truly inspiring organizational culture.

Axel Aubrun Ph.D.


Axel Aubrun is a internationally-renowned thought leader in the field of culture change. His ground-breaking work has been published in journals ranging from the Journal of the Royal Anthropological Institute to the Non-Profit Quarterly.

He is co-founder and of the Topos Partnership, a leading consultancy advising organizations across the USA and internationally. 

MANAGING INSTINCTS is a unique workshop for senior leaders, providing evidence-based insight into the individual and group dynamics that motivate human beings to work together effectively—or, if ignored, lead to conflict and strife. Leaders who understand these dynamics can help to shape an organizational culture that truly recognizes the “whole person” in each and every employee. The business benefits of a highly-motivated and well-adjusted workforce are self-evident.


Exploring individual identity and authenticity through movement, voice and storytelling.

Preeti Vasudevan CMA

Preeti Vasudevan is an award-winning choreographer, educator and performer. Her work has been acclaimed by audiences across the world from her native India (3-time META award winner) to New York (Lincoln Center, Guggenheim Museum). As an educator, her pioneering process of exploring identity through story has led to engagements with the US Department of State and many other major international organizations. 


TRUSTING YOUR STORY is an inspirational workshop which deploys theater-based techniques (choreography, music, improvisation, and reflective memory) to help senior leaders access their true creativity and release powerful modes of self-expression. Participants emerge with a strong sense of connection to their vulnerabilities—emerging from this extraordinary process not weaker but stronger, and able to project and inspire others with what Vasudevan calls "personal density" and enhanced authenticity.


Small group work explores the impact of our identity on those around us, leading to a deeper understanding of how to work together towards a collective goal.
