Includes one 30-minute introductory call where Ale asks questions and learns a little more about you and your leadership objectives, struggles, and how you’ve applied human-centred design to projects or your leadership style in the past. This will be done over Zoom.

Also includes all reading materials, templates, and note-taking guides to be used throughout the 6 weeks.

6-Week MastercLass

If you have been struggling to do work that you are proud of and make a difference for the people you would like to serve, then this program is for you.

If you’ve been riding the innovation train for some time or moving from non-human centred roles (like marketing, comms, sales, operations and so forth), have stepped into a role where your teams seem to be speaking different languages, aren’t sure whether your efforts are truly making an impact, or anything in between, then this Masterclass is for you!

Take this Masterclass as a “living and breathing” program. We require a certain level of leadership experience in order to be accepted into the program. Ideal for people who feel ready to make things better. We require people to have the courage to dare in fear and ambiguity, and people who want to make a difference. 

The Masterclass is for people who are part of complex businesses and are trying to solve even more complex problems. It’s for leaders who are open-minded and willing to try new approaches that are human-centric and pretty badass. It’s for experts who are willing to be vulnerable, recognise, accept (and embrace) failure, and spearhead changes like never before. It’s for those who’ve probably played around with Design Thinking or similar innovation principles and truly believe in the value of doing things a little differently. And hopefully, it’s for you!

Who is this for?

This 6-week Human Centred Leadership Masterclass is designed to tap into the brilliance and expertise of tried and true leadership efforts. Through a human-centred lense, of course! By working alongside experts in all kinds of industries, you’ll be exposed to a new range of past experiences to learn and grow from.

This Masterclass will propel you into a completely new level of thinking. By applying the teachings to a real-life case study and working alongside other awesome humans, you will gain a different perspective on problem solving and get insight into other leadership styles.

We hate to be trite, but ultimately you’ll get out of it what you put into it. In order for you to truly get the most out of the Masterclass, you’ll have to dedicate a good chunk of time and effort into completing the weekly readings, commit to online collaboration sessions with your “team,” and also go online once a week to discuss and share the week’s insights with the entire class. We expect 3-4 hours per week of work, inclusive of online learning.

By dedicating the time and effort that it takes to be successful in the Masterclass, you will come out of it with a new understanding on how to apply human centred design to complex organisational challenges and have the tools in your toolbox to drive the change you wish to see. Working alongside other brilliant leaders to solve said challenges? Well, that’s just the icing on the cake.

What will I get out of it?

This Masterclass is structured around two central real-life case studies that we’ll work through in 6-week increments in two separate “teams.” Each week, your team will receive a set of reading materials that supports your case study and provides you in-depth knowledge about human-centred principles.

You are expected to implement your learnings with your team by working through your case study. Finally, once a week, you will join the entire Masterclass online to discuss the experiences of the week, insights, observations and more. The makeup of the course is approximately 20% individual reading, 30% implementation, 50% shared online contribution.

Ale will be your main coach and will facilitate all online learnings and conversations. Ale will also be supported by a team of design practitioners who will come in to ignite ideas and bring new insights into the tasks we will need to complete. 

All participants will receive a certificate of completion.
