LEAD THE ENDURANCE: LEADERSHIP CHALLENGE
OVER 4000 PARTICIPANTS HAVE EXPERIENCED LEAD THE ENDURANCE. MORE THAN 95% WOULD RECOMMEND THIS PROGRAM TO A FRIEND OR COLLEAGUE.
Typically, companies are not capable of creating leaders and efforts to “teach” leadership often fall short. Rapid leadership development requires insight and practice in actual situations. Our Lead the Endurance program has helped countless companies instill the core elements of leadership into employees, resulting in increased engagement, improved morale and bankable assets.

WHAT NUMBER OF PARTICIPANTS IS BEST FOR THE LEAD THE ENDURANCE PROGRAM?
We can accommodate any size group from 2 to 1000+. In most situations, the more the better. This improves the diversity of perspective. And since we parallel process most of the time, you can achieve 10-20x the outcomes at the same time with a larger group. You would get a master facilitator for groups over 100. For Learn2, large groups start at 500.
WHAT LANGUAGES DO YOU OFFER FOR THIS LEADERSHIP CHALLENGE IN?
Our leadership challenge is available in English, French (Quebecois, Acadian, and Parisian), and Spanish. When identified during the initial company needs assessment we can also facilitate in multiple languages within the workshop.
HOW DO I CHECK AVAILABILITY FOR THE LEAD THE ENDURANCE EXPERIENCE?
HOW DO YOU CUSTOMIZE THIS LEADERSHIP CHALLENGE TO MEET OUR TEAM’S UNIQUE NEEDS?
We conduct a thorough needs assessment based on your business goals and people outcomes. Next, we prepare a recommended blueprint for your leadership development experience. We are willing to tailor every imaginable aspect of the challenge to fit your unique needs. It is important that your facilitator uses your language and become an extension of your team to reinforce all your past professional training investments.
WHAT WILL THIS PROGRAM COST?
Great question. There are many factors at play in determining the overall cost of running this program. We factor in the number of sessions, the number of participants, the length of session to achieve the desired outcomes, and the facilitator you choose. It also depends on the amount of work you and your people do versus us and our team. It is definitely worth a conversation with one of our facilitators – we DO NOT have sales people so don’t worry about getting sold. Many clients are shy about sharing their budget, and we work within budgets to provide you with a program that still meets your team’s unique needs. A smaller budget may mean there are fewer bells and whistles, and you can still get a big bang for your buck! Contact us for free at 1(877) 453-2762 x299 for a free consultation and we can determine what you need to best achieve your desired outcomes. Or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org .
I WANT TO MAKE THIS THE MOST UNIQUE AND MEMORABLE EXPERIENCE. WHAT VENUES WOULD YOU RECOMMEND?
Yes, the leadership challenge can absolutely be offered on location! We have had great success with many clients choosing maritime museums as a backdrop for this wonderfully engaging program. If you are looking to customize the experience without additional location costs, we have also created arctic environments right in the boardroom for past clients.
Air conditioning is blasted the day before the event to create sub-zero temperature and a chill experience your team is not soon to forget. If Mother Nature is feeling cooperative, we are not averse to throwing open the windows and letting the weather play along. One of our most memorable sessions was run in the middle of blizzard! We are willing to work with you to maximize this experience for your team on your terms!
WHAT IS THE RUNNING TIME FOR THIS LEADERSHIP CHALLENGE?
As with most elements of our leadership training programs, we can tailor the length of the challenge to meet your needs. Officially, we recommend 3 hours minimum for Lead the Endursiance and ideally 5 to 6+ hours as a stand-alone program. Learn2 designs all experiences to be modular so most can fit your timeframe or expand with additional learning and application when you add time.
WILL YOU TRAVEL TO MY LOCATION TO RUN THIS WORKSHOP? ARE TRAVEL COSTS INCLUDED?
Yes, we travel to any location/venue/city of your choosing to facilitate the program. Travel expenses are in addition to the leadership challenge facilitation fees and vary depending on the specific travel requirements.
WHAT SUPPORT IS AVAILABLE TO SUSTAIN AND AMPLIFY AFTER THE LEADERSHIP CHALLENGE?
Your facilitator meets with you after the program for your results meeting to review the outcomes for the day. During the results meeting you and your facilitator generate additional opportunities to amplify and sustain the learning. Participants receive access to post-experience videos to reinforce the main learning concepts. Your team can immediately apply their new leadership skills to their current business challenges and goals.
WHAT INCENTIVES DO YOU HAVE FOR PURCHASING MULTIPLE EMPLOYEE DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMS?
92+% of our work comes from existing and past participants who refer us. Our clients prefer to achieve actual business goals and apply their learning during LIVE sessions. Their feedback is clear: one-offs rarely work and smart commitments over time always prove to achieve better ROI. We listened and are happy to now offer clients the option of a Smart Buyer’s Card, which gets you 4 live sessions for the investment of 3.
HOW DOES THE LEADERSHIP CHALLENGE OFFER CONTINUED IMPACT FOR YOUR BUSINESS?
Our clients have found that learning is the best way to transform their business results. We’ve seen our smart buyers experience dramatic increases in their business numbers. To make business results happen you have to advise what numbers you want to move, then we build a unique leadership development plan to make that happen for your team. The clearer you are with the business goals you wish to achieve, the better our design and the greater your impact.
CAN WE BUY THE TOOLS AND RESOURCES TO FACILITATE THIS PROGRAM?
We keep getting asked this question. Yes. You can get certified to facilitate the program in your company or in a specific geography.
