About the Program, Create – Lead – Achieve

Create-Lead-Achieve is a one-of-a-kind professional development program that is designed to develop entire leadership teams who can consistently create, lead and achieve for their teams.

History shows that there were many individuals who were known as creators, leaders or achievers, but there are only some individuals who have all three attributes, including notables like Steve Jobs, Walt Disney, Nikola Tesla, Mahatma Gandhi, Abe Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt, Mohammad Ali, Sir Edmund Hillary, Martin Luther King and Sun Tzu.

How will it help my organization?

  • It’s critically important to develop Creators, Leaders and Achievers, because they will have a significant and powerful impact on every department, as well as your bottom line. They’ll also have a huge impact on society at-large.
  • The program utilizes the same methodologies used by great creators, leaders and achievers throughout history. It draws from a variety of sources, including the lives of history’s great creators, leaders and achievers; scientists, inventors, philosophers, artists, musicians and athletes. It also incorporates the practical and unique methodologies that were employed by the ancient warrior wisdom traditions, and includes engaging examples of great men and women who could overcome the most difficult challenges imaginable.
  • In addition to proven success at Apple®, this program’s methodologies are validated by the latest research findings in neuroscience, neurophysiology and evolutionary psychology. It offers vast benefits that will positively impact every aspect of the work/life space.

How does the program work?

It begins with a one-day workshop called, “Foundation Intensive,” which lays the groundwork for the program – the same cutting-edge approach developed for Apple® executives and managers. The morning session covers CREATE, while afternoon session covers LEAD and ACHIEVE.
