NASA created the 4-D leadership course to foster 8 key behaviours that transformed the organization for ever. Now we're sharing it with you.
The explosion of Space Shuttle Challenger rocked the world. The 7 astronaut fatalities and subsequent failed missions led to senate inquiries and the eventual realisation that it was social context, and not technical incompetence, that led to this and other failures. The 4-D leadership course was designed to foster 8 key behaviours that have transformed life at NASA.
Architected by Charlie Pellerin, the former Director of Astrophysics at NASA, the 4-Dimensional Leadership Course is critically different in that it equips leaders to create the social conditions for high performance. Updated with contemporary neuroscientific studies and simulations from the current space program, this leadership framework is peerless.
NASA’s returns are conservatively estimated at 450%, according to former Director of Astrophysics, and author of How NASA Builds Teams, Charlie Pellerin.
This course is designed for high-performing teams. Here is what you can expect.
Be equipped with the skills to create psychological safety and high-performing teams
Acquire the ability to recognise and shift teams away from ‘red story lines’ to reality-based optimism
Take inspiration from the lessons that made NASA the Best Place to Work in Federal Government for 11 years in a row
Establish high-performing teams without the usual ‘forming’, ‘storming’, ‘norming’ and ‘performing’ dramas
Discover why over 1,500 NASA teams and over 100,000 teams globally have voluntarily completed this program.
Apply these behaviours to your organisation for accreditation and immediate impact
Expert practitioners deliver stimulating, immersive and memorable learning experiences, using simulations drawn from the current space program. These transfer readily and are immediately applied to your workplace. Leadership course learnings are exchanged creating rich peer-to-peer learning.
The public leadership course runs as 8 x 90 minute modules, delivered virtually, once a week. Organisations running the leadership course internally can customise the cadence and delivery to suit. In both formats, the leadership course is designed to be immersive and experiential, with participants applying new skills to real organisational challenges between sessions.
