Why this program?

In order to know where we need to grow as leaders, we need to assess and validate where we are. As we are getting more and more responsibility as design leaders we get overwhelmed and we are prone to overcommitting.

Learn Courtney Kaplan's leadership philosophy and operational efficiency practices to help you develop a rhythm for your work & effective communication. We're creating a safe space for you to work on your skills to become an impactful leader.

This three-part workshop series will leave you with clarity and energy towards scaling yourself as a leader. We will do this through discussions and a series of thought-provoking activities with design peers facing similar challenges.

HOW DOES THE PROGRAM WORK

How will you learn?

Leadership Academy is a 6-week professional growth program investing in the next generation of design leaders. You'll get matched with a mentor and a group of 2--3 design peers for mentorship, accountability and discuss challenges. You'll also join workshops and live sessions (six live sessions, one each week) to learn from experienced design leaders.

Learn from Experienced Leaders

Attend an intimate workshop-style program that will enhance your perspective on better collaboration. Join practical sessions (one per week) to solidify what you're learning and apply the frameworks and concepts in action.

Learn with a Small Peer Group

This program is designed to facilitate peer learning and interaction. Going through a program, you will connect with a group of curated design peers facing similar challenges like you is the best way to ensure transformation for your career. We're keeping the cohort small to ensure you master the concepts we're teaching, learn and get support from peers.


Accountability & Personalized Feedback

Get personalized feedback from other learners in intimate design peer groups. For the 6 weeks programs you get matched with a mentor and a small group of 2-4 design peers with complementary skills and knowledge for mentorship and ongoing structured meetings for peer learning, to support you and keep you on track to achieve your goals.

Join a Private Community

Join our member-only community. Get 1 year access to Leadership Circle where you'll continue to be supported via ongoing events and accountability after the program.

Learn by Doing

This program is structured as: “Learn → Practice → Get Feedback". Each week you get a worksheet to practice, actionable methods and tactics to summarize the concepts and help you immediately put them into action.

an inclusive and equitable PROGRAM:
2% of the profits from this program will be donated to the non-profit Inneract Project to empower underrepresented youth through design education and link them to opportunities to explore design in career and life.

Inneract Project (IP) is a cause we believe in that serves primarily middle and high school youth who identify as Black, Latinx and/or of low-income backgrounds.
