  • Multiple-time advisor to high-impact ventures across the globe addressing challenges that come with success and growth (Rising Academies, Nexleaf, 4G Capital, Code for America)

Christina Bwana

Driving Team Results

As your venture scales, your team encounters more frequent challenges to sustained focus on – and consistent achievement of – your team’s most important goals. Building processes to align on your most important goals, facilitate trade-off discussions, and guide all of your team members to play an active role working towards those goals can help your team focus and adapt, when needed.


In this two-week virtual learning program, leaders will

  • Assess their current process and timetable for reviewing company strategy and setting desired results for the next time period
  • Navigate common challenges for tracking metrics to measure progress towards desired results along the way
  • Explore how team members can be active participants in the fulfillment of goals on their team and within their organization
  • Receive tips on how to make company goals and outputs part of regular conversation within their team
  • Gain access to a network of leaders across sectors and functional areas from around the world


Who Should Attend

Senior leaders who own strategy and execution for a function and play a role to shape company goals and processes. 

We strongly encourage two or more leaders from a venture to participate together. Leaders who participate with a colleague benefit from an ‘accountability buddy’ and thought partner, helping them share learnings with other team members to achieve desired outcomes across their organization.
