What is the Hive Global Leaders Program?

Our flagship event, the Hive Global Leaders Program, is a 3-day leadership training program for high-level CEOs, entrepreneurs, innovators, and leaders from around the world. It is designed as the entry into a lifelong community of leaders working together on creating a better world.

Our next event is Hive Los Angeles, scheduled for December 8-11, 2017. Apply here.

Over the last three years, Hive has built a global alumni community of 1500 leaders and entrepreneurs from 115 countries who are working on creating a better world.

Hive Global Leaders so far include CEOs of $250 million companies, award-winning Ashoka Fellows, elected leaders, neuroscientists, Olympic Gold Medalists, Rwandan genocide-survivors turned inspiring public speakers, technology entrepreneurs, Harvard and Stanford professors, Sudanese refugees turned scientists, renewable energy investors, Nepalese activists, World Economic Forum Young Global Leaders, IDEO design thinkers, top engineers from Facebook, Google, and Apple, World Bank and UN researchers, venture capitalists, Virgin Galactic astronauts, and many more extraordinary leaders working to create a better world.

Hive isn’t a regular event at all. It is a in-person three-day collaboration with extraordinarily talented creatives and innovators from 30+ countries designed to welcome you into an extremely high quality peer network for you throughout the rest of your life regardless of where you travel or what journey you take. The Hive community will always be with you wherever you go. At Hive, there are few handshakes and business cards exchanged, and a lot of hugs and lifelong relationships formed.

Who Attends Hive?

Over half of Hive attendees are from outside the United States and over half are CEOs, Co-founders, Managing Directors, Executive Directors or Presidents of their organizations. What each attendee has in common is a shared passion for creating a better world.

At Hive, you’ll have the opportunity to reimagine the future of society, reflect on your life’s purpose, create an action plan for the next phase of your life, implement daily habits that will help you make a bigger impact, and join a committed network of mission-driven leaders who can help you achieve your goals.

You’ll have time to reflect, time to learn, time to play, and time to plan your next steps as a leader as you enter this next phase of your life ahead.

What Will I Learn?

The Hive Global Leaders Program is designed to educate and connect extraordinary people who are making a big positive impact in the world. The curriculum has been built for mission-driven leaders and entrepreneurs who are dedicated to creating a future that is radically better than the present. 

The Hive curriculum has been influenced by the Harvard Business School MBA program, the Singularity University Executive Program, the Stanford d.school, the Harvard Graduate Student Leadership Institute, and the work of Google X pioneer Tom Chi.

Curriculum

On day one we look at what is happening in the world. We look at the Global Grand Challenges, look at how humanity is doing across health, education, economics, happiness, and the environment, look into the future of science and technology and the biggest opportunities for millennials, work together on the principles upon which we might redesign the global system, and experience a rapid prototyping workshop with Tom Chi.

On day two we discuss what is happening your life, look at your health and wellness and your financial plan, go through a Designing Your Life Workshop, create your goals, reevaluate your habits, and create your personal one page plan.

Finally on day three we look at what is happening in your work and learn about authentic leadership and scaling an entrepreneurial organization, cover expansion stage sales and marketing, hold a Hive Unconference, and end the day with each participant framing their one page life plan and presenting their purpose to the group.

After Hive, you will have new ideas and frameworks to take back to your daily life that will make you a more effective leader, and you’ll be part of a global lifelong community of leaders working together on solving humanity’s greatest challenges. Whether you are extremely successful and established in your position, or ready to transition toward a new place in your career, you will leave Hive with greater clarity on how your work can positively affect your community and the world.

Hive provides transformative leadership training, integrating elements of entrepreneurship, purpose, life design, wellness, the arts, authentic relating, rapid prototyping and global systems thinking.
