Strive’s Leadership Circles are twelve week-long community-based leadership development programs to help you become the leader you and your team want.
Vetted, Experienced Coaches
Strive's coaches are experienced working with emerging leaders at top companies
Coaches are approved based on work experience (preferring people who have worked in tech), coaching clients at notable companies, industry certifications, and are evaluated after each Strive engagement. Only 10% of interested coaches are included.
Strive’s Circles combine self-discovery and skill development to help emerging leads thrive in the workplace. The self discovery occurs through community engagement and executive coaching (including the 360), while the skill development is largely during the remote classes.
During the program, you will learn each of the below skills. These skills are essential for both high performing individual contributors and new managers to reach the next level at work.
Taming the Inner Critic
Developing into a leader requires understanding one’s own personal hesitations, anxieties and fears before truly connecting with and leading others. Participants will learn to understand their inner critic and how to transform their always-on inner critic to an inner leader.
Many emerging leaders avoid conflict, failing to give necessary feedback or unblock x-functional roadblocks. Managers will learn to have productive, mutually beneficial difficult conversations.
Great leaders are advocates for themselves and their team, pushing for promotions, resources, opportunities, and fighting scope creep. You will learn how to advocate and develop high-leverage relationships with advisors, mentors, and sponsors to set a foundation for future advocacy.
Strive’s Learning Philosophy
Learn by Doing
A Social Learning Platform Intentionally Built for Leadership Development
Strive’s Learning Platform is intuitive and engaging, building community and ongoing commitment
Complete 360 Assessment
Each participant begins their learning journey by reflecting on their professional personality and leadership skills. Strive then helps them track progress with updated, modularized feedback.
Intuitive Learning Experience
Strive’s coursework is easy to follow, with clear to-dos, interactive syllabi, access to the Strive resource library, and learning playlists for every skill.
Strive participants are pushed to use their classroom lessons in the real-world. Activity is synced to a Slack channel specific to your cohort, so the coach and engaged peers help keep each other accountable.
Helping Propel Underrepresented Groups Into the Ranks of Leadership
Strive is committed to developing the next generation of diverse leaders. We believe that cultivating this next wave of innovators begins with building and promoting a bench of diverse talent.
Strive’s Leadership Circles use a foundation of trusted curriculum and forward-thinking pedagogy to build a highly engaged community of empowered leaders.
