About the Lab

LL19 is an invite-only educational, networking and leadership experience for growth-minded emerging executives who will become the thought leaders and industry shapers in future C-Suites.

Their mission is to reach for a higher altitude, an elevated mindset — to think from the CEO’s perspective. CEOs select their rock-stars who convene as part of a highly curated, exclusive peer community over 12 months.

“LL19 is truly an innovative leadership experience. It goes beyond the theory and philosophy of leadership by transforming it into actual leadership practice. It is the most practical leadership development program that I am aware of.”

– Brian Stading, President NW Region, CenturyLink

The Inspiration

From the CEO’s Perspective

Based on my experience coaching CEOs, each one hopes that his or her executive team has the skills and mindset to lead from the CEO’s perspective. That’s not something taught in an MBA program, but we know it can be learned.

“What excites me about the Leadership Lab is the opportunity for leaders to learn at top-speed, not only during the day but throughout the year. And to do it among other rising executives in Seattle who are future CEOs.”

– John Oppenheimer, CEO, Columbia Hospitality

The LeadershipLab19 Experience

October 18, 2018

LL19 launches as a day-long leadership performance lab. Executives are assigned to a Leadership Advisory Board (L.A.B.), formed from diverse function areas such as finance, marketing, human resources, governance – in order to gain the “whole system” perspective from which the CEO sees. Leaders work in a team-format to develop individual leadership performance plans, guided by a professional dream-team of executive coaches facilitating working sessions.

November 2018

Executives initiate into an executive coach-facilitated, peer coaching model. Members of each L.A.B. cohort provide support, offer diverse thinking, serve as professional resources, and are steadfast confidants. Each L.A.B. meets for six sessions and two executive sessions, which take place from 3-5pm followed by networking.
