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.
