Your personal leadership coaching with Jamin and Jen includes a structured curriculum and tailored individual coaching. It is a unique combination of personal transformation and leadership training and forms the core of the program. For us, leadership encompasses your entire life. We will guide you to move beyond your current limitations and create a future with clear vision, purpose and passion. The leadership coaching is facilitated online via individual and team video calls.

As part of the leadership program, you will complete a major physical challenge: Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania! Many of our Members prepare for such a challenge for the first time. In this preparation, you will transform your health, your fitness and your mind. You receive world-class individualised physical coaching from our elite fitness coach and dietitian to prepare for the marathon and learn how to maintain a new level of vitality and wellbeing.

You become part of a team of leaders committed to creating an extraordinary life and making a difference in the world. Each program has a maximum of 10 Members, which ensures high levels of support for each participant and fosters a strong connection between all Members. You will support each other, learn from one another and unite through the shared journey.
