What is in the Dingo Program

Personalized development methodology

Each week we will cover different topics and actionable frameworks through a variety of delivery approaches that caters to your managerial style, team needs and goals. Expect around 3 to 4 hours of work each week which includes live sessions, case study discussions, feedback and follow-up conversations to drive real development.

Cohort-based support network

We strongly believe in the importance of creating a support network with people that are going through the same journey as you. It significantly increases the depth of learning by connecting with peers in a cohort solving similar problems to you. We will be facilitating group interactions both synchronously and asynchronously during and even post bootcamp.

1:1 coaching sessions

Work with our experienced leadership coach in 1:1 sessions to dive deeper into ways to develop yourself. We understand becoming your best self is hard work that's why we provide the support that you need. By investing in yourself to feel more positive, engaged, and connected, you will build a stronger and more trusting team to drive a high-performing culture that supercharges your team's success.

Practice and planning

Practical case studies and step-by-step worksheet and planning format to take the frameworks from Dingo and use them immediately with your team. New cases, worksheets and live sessions on a weekly basis to dive deeper on specific topics and questions. We want to help you apply what you learnt rather than memorize concepts.
