The 9 Week Alignment Sprint

The foundational course in our Aligned Leadership curriculum

Jump-start your organizational alignment knowledge, and make an immediate difference in your organization as you go along! This course introduces you to Paul Penny's Alignment Framework, The P Principles, with 10 modules delivered over 9 weeks. Each week includes an opportunity to apply what you learn in assessing, planning, and improving alignment within your organization. 

While mastering these methods, and completing the journey to a Culturally Aligned organization, often takes years, this course is designed to get leaders started down the path with a strong base of knowledge and incremental, but impactful, improvements.
