LIFE Leadership Training in Newark, New Jersey

February 16-18, 2018

LIFE is a three-day, full immersion leadership program that explores and brings out the best in you as a leader. By changing thinking based on objective data, it awakens the leader within. LIFE enables you to better understand the effect you have on other people, stimulates personal insights, and boosts personal leadership effectiveness.

LIFE is experiential and science-based. Rather than a traditional lecture or classroom format, you actually feel and experience the qualities of leadership by practicing behaviors that result in sustainable personal development and growth. Using unique biofeedback technologies, you receive objective data and personal reports on your physiology in a variety of situations, building the essential self-awareness foundation necessary for personal intentional change.

The hard science and data behind LIFE provide an empirical basis for the tools and techniques to assist you in developing your self- and social- awareness, as well as your ability to self- regulate stress and emotions, allowing you to stay cool under pressure and be more resilient to challenging emotional stimuli. These components are key brain-based pillars for character, and are the essence of leadership success. You will have access to a comprehensive online- dashboard where you can see your personal biometric data from the program and track your progress over the following months.

As a LIFE graduate, you leave the program with strongly anchored goals and the requisite behavior modification tools, allowing you to move beyond the personal barriers that have kept you from your potential, with a personal development action plan and, more importantly, the motivation and conviction to move forward and make it happen.

How LIFE Works

Participants are placed in an experiential environment, in a group of between 15 to 22 people, with all meals, sessions and exercises undertaken together. Under the direction of experienced trainers and facilitators, processes specifically designed to emulate social environments challenge the group continuously. You will come to realize that giving 100% of yourself toward group success is key to passing the task or exercise.

In LIFE, we use technology to help boost your performance and measure how deeply you are emotionally engaged and how your leadership performance affects others. Following the training, there is a LIFE debrief session via conference call, typically held on the following Tuesday the week after.

The follow-up individual coaching sessions are highly recommended to offer maximum support during the critical first weeks of implementing the LIFE goals and methods.
