Program description

The BTS LeaderLab is a multi-faceted program designed to bring together the different elements required to tackle common challenges of strategy execution – slow speed of execution, a siloed and disconnected approach, and a struggle for people to fully grasp their role.

The LeaderLab is an integrated experience that equips leaders with the right alignment, mindset, and capabilities to execute strategies within their organizations – from understanding their leadership styles, to being confronted with critical business challenges and trade-offs that cut across siloes, to driving change through committing to action. The LeaderLab experience achieves this through intensity which brings the pressure and challenge of execution, a safe space which provides the freedom to take risks and experiment, and finally coaching which allows leaders to avoid defaulting to old mindsets and engage new ones.

Business challenges addressed

I need my leaders to:

  • understand our strategy and their role in driving execution throughout the organization
  • develop stronger cross-functional empathy to understand the wider impact of their decisions across the entire organization
  • challenge old mindsets and engage new ones
  • enable faster execution by role modeling behaviors consistent with our strategic priorities


Program details

  • Format: in-person, virtual, or hybrid
  • Duration: multi-day
  • Capacity: cohorts of 20-25 leaders


Program elements

  • Customized enterprise business simulations

How we help

Enterprise business simulations

At the core of the LeaderLab is an enterprise business simulation which serves as a platform to explore the challenges leaders will face in executing their organization’s strategies. In a risk-free, simulated environment, LeaderLab places leaders face-to-face with the challenges of strategy execution, taking on roles as C-level leaders, and practicing running the business. In doing so, they encounter real-world customer problems, business trade-offs, dynamic competition, and unstable conditions, helping them develop an understanding of their leadership style, confront critical business challenges and trade-offs realistic to your business, cut across siloes, and commit to effective leadership sprints.


By having conversations that typically only happen within the C-suite, leaders internalize the thinking behind the strategy, accelerating a process that would otherwise take years.

How we help


More than just coaching. Connected. By design.


We believe coaching should be in service of your strategy and connected to your values, leader models, and talent processes. If you want to drive change and ensure that it sticks, you must work with leaders at an individual level and collective level. We do both.


Our digital ecosystem is more than a coaching app. We integrate coaching, assessment, simulation, and learning experiences to transform people and the business. By connecting multiple learning modalities, leaders develop more complex and sophisticated ways of thinking.
