How the experience works

Lead Belay's approach to designing a top-tier virtual leadership development experience is far from a canned, one-size-fits-all program. The Emerging Leader Ascent provides each participant with a small group of peers from other organizations, led by a professional coach.

What participants are saying

  • I liked that we work in different industries… We learned from each other and there were things I could apply that I learned from their different environments.

    Natalie F. Project manager

  • It's wonderful to have an opportunity to connect with like minded people, but with different backgrounds. I didn't have to sugar-coat things. People saw me really be myself.

    Sonny W. Growth manager

Why it works

Developing the WHOLE leader

Lead Belay empowers the whole leader in today’s changing world—not just the manager in the workplace—to help emerging managers gain the confidence, skills, and insights they need to do their best work and be their best selves.

Peer-based learning

Our grouping algorithms match emerging leaders into small peer groups that optimize for trust, support, and productive challenging of one another, creating the ideal environment for learning.

Rooted in authenticity & trust

Leadership depends on authenticity and trust, which is why we created a scientifically-backed method for quickly establishing new relationships that transcend small talk and business cards.
