The new workplace requires new skills

Everyone knows it: the competencies that your managers relied on yesterday won't cut it today.

But they're too busy navigating wave after wave of change to invest in skill-building for the future. So, they cope. Maybe read a few online articles. Or take an online course.

Trouble is, those efforts may prepare them for conversation at networking events and job interviews, but they don't help them put the ideas into action. Whether they're managing change, growing trust, or driving innovation, your leaders need to acquire the specific, repeatable habits that lead to lasting performance gains. That's what Oji Lead is all about.

Take leadership mastery to the next level, step-by-step

How can you achieve team or organizational excellence without strong leadership? Truth is, you can't. That's why we created Oji Lead: to give your managers the skills that matter most in today's workplace. And we're not talking about a tour of the hottest buzz words: we're here to build real mastery.

As a program built specifically for seasoned leaders, Oji Foundations has the vibe of a graduate seminar, with an emphasis on discussion, personal coaching, and flexibility. We've worked with a team of world-class thinkers to create an experience that fits into the chaos of the modern workplace while delivering real impact.

In-demand topics, on demand

When you're ready to help your managers gain the skills they need for today's work world, Oji Lead is ready to go. Managers can start anytime and proceed at whatever pace works.

Linda Hill and a team of top thinkers

To grow leadership mastery, Oji Lead develops skills in a sequence of brief activities over time. Learners progress at whatever pace works for them, when they have the time and motivation. It's the best way to build lasting behaviors.

Team Lab: The best of coaching and peer learning

Practice, feedback and live discussion are key to deep learning. That's why Oji Lead includes our unique Team Lab environment. In Team Lab, each learner joins a small team with a dedicated Coach for a series of in-depth sessions and projects.
