The Hive Global Leaders Program is designed to educate and connect leaders who are making a big positive impact in the world. The curriculum has been built for mission-driven leaders, innovators, and entrepreneurs who are dedicated to creating a future that is radically better than the present. The Hive GLP is designed to transform your life and transform your leadership, so that you can transform the world in community.

Hive provides transformative leadership training, integrating elements of entrepreneurship, purpose, life design, wellness, the arts, authentic relating, rapid prototyping and global systems thinking. On day one we look at what is happening in the world. We look at the Global Grand Challenges, look at how humanity is doing across health, education, economics, happiness, and the environment. On day two we discuss what is happening your life, look at your health and wellness and your financial plan, go through a Designing Your Life Workshop, create your goals, reevaluate your habits, and create your personal one page plan. Finally on day three we look at what is happening in your work and learn about authentic leadership and scaling an entrepreneurial organization and finalize your purpose statement. Graduates leave the program with clarity on their purpose for the next phase of their lives and a lifelong global community of leaders there to support them on their journey.

The Hive curriculum was designed based upon the team’s experiences with the Harvard Graduate School Leadership Institute, the Harvard Business School MBA program, the Singularity University Executive Program, the Stanford Designing Your Life course, the Art of Living Happiness Program, the Landmark Curriculum for Living, and the work of GoogleX innovator Tom Chi.
