1:1 Coach Support

Each Lead for Change participant will receive a personal, highly skilled coach to join you on your journey. You’ll meet five times both on the phone and in person to discuss what’s holding you back and to design actions to move you forward.

Challenge Assumptions

We all at times hold assumptions (some true, many false) that limit our ability to face the deep challenges where we’d like to see movement. Through a structured process, you’ll evaluate your own assumptions with an emphasis on breaking through limiting beliefs to achieve measurable actions.

Immunity to Change

Curious about why you are stuck and what makes change so difficult? Immunity to Change guides you through an effective process to make progress on your personal, adaptive challenge. Uncover what is holding you back from success and learn a new path forward through experimentation.

What is Lead for Change?

We know people working to create significant change need steady support.

By attending Lead for Change you’ll join others from all sectors and levels of authority with a common aspiration: to move forward on what you care about most. We’re looking for dreamers, those with aspirations for large-scale change both within yourself and within the systems where you live and work.

Our leadership framework has helped thousands more effectively diagnose situations, manage themselves, intervene skillfully and energize others. On top of a deep dive into the KLC leadership framework, you’ll gain tangible skills, evaluate assumptions holding you back, receive personalized feedback through a 360 leadership assessment and work 1:1 with a leadership coach who will challenge and support you in your efforts to move forward.

Lead for Change is our most extensive offering aimed at helping you deeply invest in the challenges facing you. Join a community of others with skills and support to move forward.
