From the very first call with you, we listen closely and custom tailor advanced, strategic curriculum that aligns with the unique challenges and goals of your organization. Our proven leadership methodologies are built from deep expertise in design thinking, organizational psychology, leadership communication, and stress management.

Our curriculum is scaled to challenge experienced high-performers. From mid-level executives to distinguished senior leadership teams, we apply a range of teaching methods to provide thought-provoking, content-rich learning experiences for executives who want to take their ability to influence and inspire to the next level.

More than hearing another “presentation,” most often what your listeners want is to have a conversation, an exchange of ideas, a meeting of minds. In all our programs, we create inspiring conversations with your executives. Even when your meeting requires slides, a stage, or a microphone, we always challenge you to create a meaningful conversation with your listeners.

Diversity is a key ingredient to driving innovation and transformation across every industry. We design curriculum to hear from every voice in the room. Gender, race, cultural background, introverts, extroverts, creatives, scientists…mining the diversity of thought in the room generates more ideas, stimulates collaboration, and allows you to consider a situation or problem from all perspectives.

You’ll have the opportunity not only to learn powerful leadership principles and tools, but also to get on your feet, practice, and receive real-time feedback from both our expert team as well as from your colleagues. We are invested in growing a culture of practice and feedback within your organization so you can build a more collaborative culture, perform at your best, and maximize results.

A well-told story makes a complex business idea easier to understand and gives color and nuance to any situation. All our thought leaders at The Applause Institute are experts at identifying your most valuable story material and helping you build a compelling narrative that makes a memorable impact and drives results.

We examine your cultural ecosystem to identify factors that contribute to the challenges facing your teams and leaders. Through third-party assessments and interviews, we act as cultural anthropologists to examine the elements of the external environment that may be impacting individual or team behavior. Systems thinking ensures our coaching addresses the root of the challenge and not just the symptoms.

Your presence as a leader is driven most by what you are thinking and feeling in any given moment — your mindset. We all notice the difference between an executive who is stressed and one who is full of passion. At The Applause Institute, we delve beneath the surface to teach you practical tools and techniques to manage your mindset to bring out your boldest and brightest leadership presence. We develop your leadership from the inside out.

“Chi delivered outstanding communication training for the team. He took a group with mixed ability and turned them all into something great. Using a variety of techniques, Chi was able to install confidence and increase skills in all of us. Despite it being a large group of around 14 people, each person felt that they had one-to-one support from Chi throughout the two-day training. I am now able to walk into any situation from boardroom to community meeting, and pitch my ideas with success.”
