Clarity and Confidence for Developing Leaders Program

Deadline Extended.png

Because equipping tomorrow’s leaders starts today…

We believe you don’t have to have a fancy title or corner office to lead others. Since 2002, Trebuchet Group has worked with hundreds of individuals to provide confidence and clarity for leaders and their teams. While our sweet spot has been working with executives and individuals in C-Suite positions, we know the world of work is changing.

Boomers are transitioning out of companies. Founders are retiring. Gaps are opening as companies change structures, leadership, and direction. We’re hosting this self-development program because these gaps provide opportunity for willing individuals and we want a new generation of leaders to feel confident as they prepare for what comes next.

If you manage results, direct programs, or aspire to be in the C-Suite someday, we invite you to apply to be part of our journey equipping leaders to achieve great things together.

We believe it’s never too early to start shaping your leadership journey so you will be ready to lead when organizations change, shift and grow.

This is a special opportunity to be a part of a unique program designed to increase your self-awareness, equip you with new tools, and build a foundation for you as you work and lead people across all levels of your organization. You will interact directly with Trebuchet Group staff and advisors and have the chance to ask questions and practice with Author and CEO Chris Hutchinson.

Due to popular demand, we are running two cohorts in the fall. Each group will have no more than ten up and coming leaders.

Apply by the early bird deadline - or bring a friend - to get the best pricing (see below for details).

This program opened my eyes to new ways of thinking. I have already begun implementing what I learned into my organization approach and am seeing positive results.

The Program

A six-session in-person, self-development program with peer and advisor support.

Following the six principles of Ripple: A Field Manual for Leadership that Works written by Chris Hutchinson, participants first examine themselves and their personal leadership, then explore how to lead others, and finally gain tools for leading organizations.

The program includes:

  • A personal copy of Ripple: A Field Manual for Leadership that Works

  • A customized workbook

  • Personality strength and motivators assessment to know where you’re awesome

  • A one-hour coaching session with a Trebuchet Group advisor

  • Facilitated conversations with peers across industries

  • Practical confidence boosters for exercising leadership skills at work

Who Should Participate

Perfect for the individual who wants to lead teams and organizations to accomplish great things. Candidates can be individual contributors or currently managing programs or directing people. Participants must be able to attend at least five of the six sessions in person in our Fort Collins office.

Not in Northern Colorado? Email Katie at to get on the waiting list for the virtual program option.

Note: to encourage diversity in challenges, we are limiting participants to only 2 per company. If you have a larger group in your company, we can explore options together.

This was a valuable opportunity to connect with other emerging leaders across very different sectors. It strongly encourages you to spend time thinking through your goals, ambitions and plans and provides the tools as you set out to achieve great things.

Why Participate

If you have a heart for people and believe companies can make positive impact in the world, this program is for you.

Participants will gain practical tools to improve self-awareness of leadership preferences, build confidence when working with others, and gain the tools to implement creative solutions to your current challenges. This program is designed to allow developing leaders to practice new skills in a safe environment.

This program provided me an opportunity to not only acquire new leadership tools, but I learned how to apply these tools to my real-world situations. Thank you for a great program!
