What We Do

Executive Breakthrough

Together with Mobius Executive Leadership, we offer the Executive Breakthrough Program, a year-long journey for current CEOs or CEO succession candidates to unleash their full potential. It is a highly experiential intervention that accelerates each individual’s growth and expands their ability to transform themselves and impact their organization.

Top leaders meet in a high touch, extremely intimate and confidential environment, led by Egon Zehnder and Mobius’s top faculty, including Erica Ariel Fox, lecturer at Harvard Law School and author of the New York Times bestselling book “Winning from Within.” Participants will be introduced to the “Big Four” and Transformers to better understand their leadership repertoire.

Personalized interventions for each participant create a bespoke and profoundly impactful process for each participant, and participating in one another’s process creates strong trust and long-time connection among the group.

The Executive Breakthrough Program is for CEOs and equivalent level executives, CEO succession pipeline candidates and CEOs between roles.

For current CEOs of smaller companies, those aspiring to (major) CEO roles in three to five years, and high potential senior executives, the Executive Discovery Program may be more suitable.
