Customized Leadership Experiences

Each Leadership Experience is tailored to support your goals and help your leaders overcome specific challenges they face today and in the future.

Below is the process that we use to determine how to best support you in our partnership.  See our FAQ.

Our Approach

Identify Your Audience

Determine Topics and Priorities

Select Your Leadership Experience

Customize Your Leadership Experience

1. Identify Your Audience

Apollo Experience to Lead Group

Whether it’s a high potential cohort, succession-ready candidates, or a leadership team – we’re here to support your leaders’ development. The first step is to identify which groups would be engaging in our Experiential Leadership Experience.

Experience to Lead’s primary audiences include:

  • High potentials and succession-ready candidates
  • Executive leaders, business unit leadership teams, and intact teams
  • Large groups, including internal , conferences, and meetings

Our Leadership Experiences can either be stand-alone or embedded into a broader learning journey to create lasting impact focused on actionable outcomes.

2. Determine Topics and Priorities

After identifying your audience, we will review and discuss their development needs and goals with  you. Many of our clients align their customized Leadership Experience with specific competency models or strategic initiatives.  Others ask us to do surveys, interviews, and assessments to clarify the audience’s needs before customization decisions are finalized.

Our approach to experiential learning produces long-lasting awareness to create change. But change is only valuable if your people develop the characteristics and capabilities relevant to their needs. This process ensures that the topics selected for your program meets their needs.

Common topics for recent clients:

Leading Through Change

Improve Resilience
Respond to Setbacks

3. Select Your Leadership Experience

Once you’ve determined the cohort and we begin to have an understanding of the topics or competencies critical to your leaders’ success, we may find that multiple Leadership Experiences could achieve your objectives. At this stage of the process, we will partner with you to determine the best fit. This decision is driven by which Leadership Experience will best serve your leaders and includes considerations such as primary learning objectives, travel and related costs, preferences and cultural fit, team dynamics, and other topics.

4. Customize Your Leadership Experience

Regardless of which Leadership Experience you select, our team will partner with you to customize your program to meet your goals.
