T-Group Weekend Intensive for Executive Leaders
Audience: Tech & Media Executives, Venture Investors, & Other Senior Leaders
This is an intensive residential immersion for a diverse cohort of 12 hand-selected senior leaders. The 3.5-day extended weekend program is based on the same learning format as the legendary Interpersonal Dynamics (“Touchy Feely”) class — the most popular elective course at the Stanford Graduate School of Business and will be led by two experienced trainers including Carole Robin, the long-time lead instructor of the Stanford course and Tony Levitan, who has facilitated the course with Carole for many years. This is an experiential learning program focused on discovering when and how you are most influential; how others really think and feel about how you act; and how you lead. Many former participants have described the experience as profoundly benefitting their personal and professional lives.

I've learned about a whole new aspect of communication that I believe will be invaluable in my personal and professional success. It's something I want to send all my friends and colleagues to and am privileged to have been a part of.
The learnings about myself were much more intense and deep than anything I could have imagined. I'm really grateful for this life changing experience.
I recommend this weekend intensive to experience transformation, not just talk about it.
Their are so few ways to really feel the impact and experience true learning with it comes to interpersonal skills. This InnerSpace intensive weekend have given me exactly that.
Hour for hour, the most valuable personal and professional growth experience of my life.
The InnerSpace Intensive Weekend will amplify your emotional capacity and leadership presence by an order of magnitude or more. Every startup founder needs to do this.
The T-Group Weekend Intensive was probably the highest ROI way I could have spent 3.5 days: for the health of my company, the happiness of the amazing individuals who work here, and for my own ability to create and sustain meaningful relationships.
I can't overstate how much I wish this could be a more broadly accessible experience.
At the risk of it sounding cliched, I came back cleansed and more mentally prepped to tackle real problems in the real world!! I can hands down say every startup leader needs such a weekend.
I believe I will achieve 10x more because of this weekend. I became aware of and learned how to overcome major interpersonal stumbling blocks that have been severely holding back my professional and personal relationships.
Wow. Eye opening. I loved it.
I don't often endorse stuff but, based on personal experience, here's one that I gladly will. The folks at Innerspace have found a way to replicate the experience of the Stanford [Interpersonal Dynamics] class in a Weekend Intensive. I've been through it and it changed my worldview. If you're in a leadership position at any level, you should try it too.
