Learning Process



The foundational theory behind the institute is that anyone, regardless of class, gender, and education, has the capacity to grow into an effective organizational leader.

In order for this internal and leadership transformation to take root for long-term impact, we will spend a year with each participant in a cohort of 10-15 entrepreneurial, missional leaders. Those in the cohort will meet quarterly (every three months) for intensive 3-day seminar sessions to develop their capacity to strengthen their organizations to achieve their vision and mission.

We develop leaders regionally in 3 countries and growing. We recruit local leaders to participate in person and through a combination of online presentation by our faculty and a local facilitator we help them apply the Five Principles of Global Leadership to their leadership and organization.
