Over the years The Secretan Center has become best known for its breakthrough approach to transforming corporate culture, called Higher Ground Leadership®. Among other awards, this has resulted in the firm being voted “Best International Leadership Consulting Firm” in the Leadership 500 Excellence Awards.
A world-class team of educators, faculty, coaches, videographers, computer graphics and software experts worked with Lance Secretan to create an experiential, modular program based on his world-renowned “Higher Ground Leadership®” philosophy—used by 30 of Fortune’s Most Admired Companies, and 15 of Fortune’s Best Companies to Work for in America. It is the most ambitious project in the firm’s history—we have taken all the leadership and cultural transformation concepts that we teach organizations across the world and compressed them into 18 modules for teachers, consultants, coaches, facilitators and trainers to use as a complete “Leadership Development Program in-a-box”. It includes,
- instructor’s training and certification program
- instructor’s guides and teaching notes
- teaching materials
- one year of coaching and technical support
The DreamQuest® Program includes state-of-the-art leadership concepts and everything necessary for facilitators, coaches and trainers to deliver the materials to their employees or clients, or in their coaching work. We set out to create an experiential program that is both affordable and accessible for everyone, as well as being adaptable to the needs of any sized organization. Just as important, we wanted to make it exciting and interesting, so the footage was filmed on location, much of it raw—wind-noise and sun-glare included—in the Rockies at Lance’s home in Copper Mountain, Colorado, and canoeing and mountain biking at his home in Ontario, Canada. Many interviews were conducted with people who live the principles he teaches. It represents the definitive overview of Higher Ground Leadership® taught by its creator.
The 18 modules include:
- Introduction and ONE Dream®
- The [email protected]® Cards
- The New Story of Leadership
- Inspiration and Motivation
- Choosing Inspiring Language
- Personal Values
- Destiny, Character and Calling – Part A
- Destiny, Character and Calling – Part B
- Values-centered Leadership®
To become qualified to teach the DreamQuest®, a two-part program is offered:
- Certification as a Higher Ground Leadership® Pathfinder, and
- A one-day Advanced Higher Ground Leadership® Teacher Training Course.
DreamQuest® facilitators must complete both programs. Organizations who prefer to use external facilitators may do so through our team of Certified Higher Ground Leadership®Pathfinders at The Secretan Center.
The DreamQuest® Program comes in two versions – 1) A custom-designed program tailored to meet the specific needs and specifications of a single organization, and 2) A ready-to-implement generic version.
