"Sue's session was the most enlightening nugget of realness I have received in a long time"
Why is Leadership Camp called “Camp”?
Well, we like immersive programming that feels like camp: rich, connected, experiential, intense, fun, transformative.
Which Camp is right for me?
We offer three types of Camp:
Leadership Camp: If you’re looking for a deep immersion into the principles of Conscious Leadership, self-awareness, and authenticity in service of optimizing your own leadership strengths and style. Leadership Camp is also a great option for members of a leadership team.
Mini-Camp: If you’d like to learn the basic tenets of Conscious Leadership in a fast-paced, highly efficient half day with us.
Couples Camp: If you’d like to enhance communication within or deepen a specific relationship, including your romantic relationship, your family relationships, or your business partnership.
We invite you to bring your entire team — executive or functional — to any of the three types of Camp. The teams who have done this reap tremendous rewards of quickly and efficiently creating a shared language of Conscious Leadership and also deepening the bond and increasing the candor across the team.
What will I get out of Camp?
Using the tools of Conscious Leadership, Leadership Camp will increase your command of the following key leadership and management skills:
Managing “down” — bringing out the very best in your team members; delegating; managing underperformers; appreciating overperformers
Managing “up” — optimizing your potential across and above the organization
Giving and receiving feedback — resulting in more closeness (rather than more distance) after the exchange
Creating clean agreements (and cleaning up the messy ones) — reducing miscommunication
Building muscles around taking ownership over your own issues — creating less work for yourself and others
Running effective and productive meetings
Defining, adjusting, and managing roles & responsibilities
Eliminating drama and gossip; making “venting” productive
Creating an environment that welcomes candor and space for others to be candid around you
Bringing more authenticity to your relationships, enhancing communication, and building intimacy
What makes Camp unique from other leadership training programs?
Executive leadership training and CEO coaching programs are in abundance. You may be wondering what makes Leadership Camp unique. It’s this: Authenticity. We deliver programming that allows people to create for themselves increased permission to be who they are in their leadership and in their lives. Read more about our philosophy on Authenticity.
What’s the schedule for Camp?
Attendance is expected at all sessions and activities, other than those listed as optional.
In-person Leadership Camps are held in Boulder, Colorado, the "happiest city" in the US and a hub for dynamic business. We also conduct virtual Leadership Camps, so you are able to join us from anywhere. Each Camp event will specify whether it is in-person or online.
Where should I stay during Leadership Camp?
Leadership Camps held in Boulder, Colorado are centrally located in downtown. Everything you do pertaining to Camp and the activities surrounding Camp can be done on foot.
Lodging near downtown Boulder is abundant, either in hotels like the St Julien or the Boulderado (closest), Embassy Suites or the Residence Inn (one mile), or Airbnb properties located near downtown. Whatever you choose based on your budget, you'll find the experience of attending Camp beautiful and user-friendly.
What's the history of Leadership Camp? Did it start as a leadership training program for women leaders?
Leadership Camp started as a product of MergeLane, the VC fund for companies with at least one female in leadership. You can read about the origin of Leadership Camp as a program for women leaders and why we decided to open Camp up to all leaders here.
What else should I know about Camp?
Leadership Camp is an emotionally intense, introspective experience. We will be working to uncover often lifelong patterns that can facilitate leadership but also get in the way unconsciously. One thing we notice is that most of these patterns have deep and meaningful emotional connections. As leaders, we often suppress emotions as not being "allowed at work." Conscious leaders learn to be present and aware of the emotional underpinnings they bring to their work encounters, decisions, and judgments. Leadership Camp helps attendees explore their emotional substructure in a way that may feel direct and intense.
You will have full control over what you choose to share, but assume others will be sharing intimate and revealing information from which the entire group can learn. Be prepared for charged discussions. We believe noticing, naming and welcoming our patterns in a trusted group is key to creating transformation and reducing drama at work.
If you've been waiting for a chance to deepen your self-awareness as a leader, Camp is for you.

I am especially impressed with Sue’s knowledge and application of Conscious Leadership principles. I have practiced Conscious Leadership for over 15 years and I have worked with some of the best experts. I count Sue as one of those experts and greatly appreciate her directness, authenticity and inspiration in her work.
