“A martial-arts practice hall, a Dojo, is a place you practice to be the best you can be. But the true combat is not between one person & another. The true combat is between the people within ourselves”

– Michael Gerber

Get Leadership Traction

The Leadership Dojo gives you an experiential approach to develop powerful new leadership skills. In this small-group program, you both learn skills and experience the transformation of the group from a collection of strangers into a highly-aligned team.  From this process, you develop new choices in muscle-memory, so that you can lead your own team through the same transformation!

The Dojo meets 4 weeks a month. One week there is an all-day workshop intensive, and the other weeks include a full-group evening review session plus two small-group reviews & check-ins.  Over the course of the program, you will build powerful relationships with the other participants, relationships that can serve you in profound ways for years to come.

At each month’s workshop intensive, you’ll master a new element of leadership. We’ll prepare you to lead your own team with these new skills, and, throughout the other weeks, you’ll review your progress and tune your skills with the other members of the Dojo. You’ll learn what to do, but you’ll also learn how great it feels to evolve into a highly-aligned team.

From the Dojo, you will learn to touch the lives of your staff in profound new ways, help them play a bigger game in life, and work smarter. You will will be a leader whose people go home at night feeling buoyant, energized & fulfilled.

“Tony’s presence lifts energy, whether in a 1-on-1 or leading a group. He has a positive effect on mood & people feel more energized”

“Tony has a way of being present with others. When he’s there, he brings a nice quality of attention to the interaction, with curiosity, openness & awareness.”

Tony is a “Possibility Agent” who helps you become your dream”
