Live the difference

Global leadership skills are in high demand.  More than 95% of the world’s consumers live outside of the United States and international business opportunities are growing rapidly.  It takes significant expertise to manage people and projects in complex and ambiguous situations.  

These skills must be developed intentionally and reinforced continually. 

Is your team prepared for the challenges of global leadership?  Leadership Synapse offers global leadership development training to prepare your team for international business success.

Our Approach

Powerful experiential learning.  Training begins with three days of classroom preparation, covering leadership principles, individual strengths, and global growth opportunities.  The training cohort puts these principles into practice through a two-week, immersive experience in a developing country.  This context maximizes outcome learning of international communication, collaboration, and designing clear, achievable goals in changing and challenging environments.  

The team is matched with a nonprofit organization involved in community development work.  Utilizing their professional expertise, the cohort will work collaboratively with the local team to understand current issues and approaches, and craft recommendations to improve outcomes and achieve goals. 

Experiential Leadership Development

Volunteer your career.  Practice leadership principles and international social skills by using your expertise to help others and better understand the world around you.  Cohort team members are matched to their functional counterparts at international nonprofits to stretch their professional experiences, as well as build local capacity and skills.  This leadership development approach contributes to corporate social responsibility initiatives, while providing unmatched leadership training. 

Our Promise

Your life and leadership will never be the same.  You will learn.  You will laugh.  Your heart might break a bit.  You will see how you can lead change that changes lives.  You will learn skills and find strengths you never knew you had.  You will make lasting friendships.  It will be the experience of a lifetime.

.humanity’s deepest challenges.  The world is waiting.
