WHAT IS THE LEAD CLASSROOM?

The Lead Classroom is a one of a kind event — a place to learn from industry leaders, connect to peers, and discover the most relevant innovations.
Specific enough to be personal and broad enough to be far-reaching, The Lead Classroom prepares you to succeed in today’s tumultuous environment.
The Lead Classroom is an online/offline experience. Even before we start, you will receive a Back-to-School Box with —
  • Everything you need for your Classroom experience: The Lead notebook, pen, water bottle, and more
  • Classrooms need coffee and you will find a personal coffee maker in your box
  • Background information and your custom Actionable Framework doc
  • Fun surprises from our brand partners and sponsors

CLASSROOM FORMAT

Attendees will enroll in 1 (or more) of 11 Classrooms with 35 of their peers. Each Classroom has a Part A & Part B (1.5 hours each) which will take place a week apart.

PART A: Business Strategies & Tactics

We begin by introducing the Action Framework received in the Back-to-School Box. The Classroom will then see a real-world presentation from a leading industry executive — this forms the basis of our workshop discussion. Next, the 32 Students-Attendees break up into groups of eight for collaborative workshops facilitated by industry leaders. Finally, we conclude with a short summary of each cohort’s outcomes.

PART B: Personal Leadership, Organizational Effectiveness, & Technology

In Part B, we focus on process, tools, and technologies necessary to implement the business strategies and tactics learned in Part A. In addition to a lesson in leadership (and a second workshop session), Part B will consist of a look at a curated group of cutting-edge and timely technology solutions from our Leading 100 list.
