Behavior change doesn’t happen just because your leaders are committed–nope, not even if they’re really committed. Meaningful and sustainable change requires new mindsets and new skillsets, approaches that often reject conventional wisdom and diverge from what has made your leaders successful in the past. That’s easier said than done.

We know that you have hundreds of options for your leadership development provider. Each of them will tell you why they’re different, we can play that game too.


You can tell your boss that our programs are evidence-based and bring the latest in organizational psychology and neuroscience research. Heck, just say “neuroscience,” …bosses eat that stuff up!


You can relax knowing that your leaders will be super surprised that we have PhDs because the sessions are so relevant, practical, and immediately applicable


You will still see the impact of the training months (and years) later because we provide one-of-a-kind tools to embed and sustain leaders’ new behaviors

So What’s the Difference?


Our training programs allow leaders to learn from case studies and best practices to develop new ways of thinking about fundamental leadership topics. These programs help leaders adopt new approaches that will make your business successful both now and in the future.


Our workshops help leaders learn new skills and then to immediately apply their learning to the most important issues they are facing in their own teams. The case study is you!

Each of the leadership development areas below is available as either a training program or a workshop.

Our Programs

Building a Culture of Productive Conflict

For your organization to get ahead and stay ahead you need to make tough calls, face hard choices, and to work through conflict. But productive conflict is still rare. Why? Because productive conflict is about more than the right skill set. It requires the right mindset and the right processes, neither of which come naturally. The 3COze Building a Culture of Productive Conflict program will help you improve results and enhance engagement. As part of this program, you will:

identify the costs (in lost productivity, reduced engagement, and heightened stress) of avoiding the difficult issues
build your skills so you can enhance the amount of constructive tension without inadvertently creating destructive friction
systematize conflict to neutralize and to normalize even the most difficult issues in your business.

Leading Your Team Through Perpetual Change

As a leader, managing change is nothing new. So, why does it feel so much harder now? Because change has changed. It’s no longer an event to prepare for, but a constant reality to cope with. With this unrelenting pace and intensity, your employees don’t have a chance to recover from the last initiative before moving on to the next one. Over time, even the best employees will either stop caring and check out or try so hard they eventually burn out. 

While you can’t stop the tsunami of change, as a leader, you have more power than you think to create calm within the storm. In this program, you will learn how to: 

  • focus employees’ attention so you can inspire high performance even in the midst of significant change and competing priorities. 
  • shift your mindset and language to help you manage emotions and move your team through resistance and drama rather than getting stuck in it.
  • develop your own resilience, so you have the energy, patience, and endurance to be there for your employees over the long haul. 
Being Productive: Less Work, More Value

Although we’ve made huge strides in technology and enabling systems, our productivity isn’t skyrocketing like you might expect. What’s going on? Should we blame it on lazy, unproductive people? Definitely not. In most cases, it’s not a matter of dead wood, but instead, dead work. Even the most talented teams are drowning in tasks that add little value while consuming huge time and energy. Not only is that unproductive, it’s also demoralizing. And you can’t just work harder and faster because the torrent of tasks is unrelenting. In this program, you will learn to: 

  • Spot the difference between high-value and lower value work
  • Reduce the time and effort you’re spending on low value activities by triaging whether they are important, urgent, unique, and essential
  • Say ‘no’ to low value work in a way that strengthens your team
Managing Remote and Hybrid Teams

The days when members of a team are all together in an office are long gone but your responsibilities as a manager haven’t changed. You still need to ensure your team members have clear direction, have the skills to succeed, and the motivation to perform, even when the tried and true approaches aren’t available or won’t work. In this program, you will learn to: 

  • Set team members up for success by understanding the factors that contribute to effective remote work
  • Strengthen team dynamics by fostering trust and mastering virtual collaboration methods
  • Find novel ways to productively engage a remote or hybrid workforce and to address the common challenges the emerge 
Increasing Your Strategic Influence

With the rise in matrix organizational structures and cross-functional teams, leaders increasingly need to get things done through influence, rather than direct control. That style often doesn’t come naturally. Most people have been taught to make a good case with strong evidence or sound logic. Unfortunately, that’s not how humans make decisions. Using a barrage of evidence can even make things worse. In this program, you will learn to:  

  • Use multiple different levers of influence to persuade with strong credibility, tight logic, and compelling emotion
  • Structure your arguments differently depending on the situation and the individuals you need to influence
  • Develop the mindset, skillset, and deliberate practices that will take you from influencing people to becoming an influential person
Running Meetings That Matter

There are few things more excruciating than a bad meeting. Why, then, do we continue to invest hundreds of hours in this futile effort? Because there are few things more gratifying than a great meeting. Why does the formula for a good meeting remain elusive? How do we get more efficient, effective, breakthrough meetings and fewer terrible ones? In this program, you will learn to:

  • Learn the three primary meeting structures and how to choose the right structure for the purpose
  • Answer the 5 preparation questions to set any meeting up for success 
  • Use a variety of techniques to generate insight, increase accountability, and drive action
