altMBA in the workplace

Great bosses and world-class organizations hire motivated people, set high expectations, and give their people room to become remarkable.
Seth Godin, Linchpin: Are You Indispensable?

We created the altMBA to change people. Change how they communicate, change how they lead and change how they work. After 2 years and 1,500+ students, we noticed something incredible.

Entire teams are taking the altMBA to fundamentally change the way they do business. Managers, team leads and executives are leveraging the altMBA to produce better leaders and reward top talent.


How does the altMBA help companies?

Employers benefit when their people care enough to speak up
The best employees don’t wait for instructions--they use good judgment and take initiative instead. At the altMBA, we teach frameworks (not tactics) to optimize for critical thinking and long-term behavior change. We take top employees and help them become even better critical thinkers who lead across an organization, regardless of title or given authority.

When one person doesn’t contribute, the entire system loses impact
Every time an A-player has to cajole a B-or-C player into doing their job, you are unnecessarily taxing your top talent. We believe that everyone can be an A-player, and we give your team the tools to level up as change agents, so they stay engaged and inspire the teams around them to shift the culture in a positive direction.

The altMBA maximizes employee potential and prepares people to navigate the complex challenges of driving organizational change. When you amplify your leaders, you amplify your team.

altMBA students learn how to:

  • Gain buy-in with cross-functional partners
  • Confidently formulate a perspective
  • Use empathy in the workplace
  • Analyze and process information
  • Write and communicate effectively
  • Iterate quickly and ‘ship’ your work for maximized productivity
  • Deliver and act on feedback
  • Plan, organize, and prioritize work
  • Navigate difficult conversations

Hear from some of our alumni on how the altMBA changed their organization

Helen Sanderson
Sanderson and Associates

I notice a significant increase in people's desire to take responsibility, be accountable for their work and show up.

Nick Dionne
MLive Media Group

One of the most immediate changes that I saw with my small team was our ability to give and receive feedback in a healthy, yet real way. The impact that has had on our teammates, direct reports and superiors has changed the center point of the client-facing and internal conversations.

Dan Pienta
Automatic Handling

The big takeaway was how we engaged our customers, and looking at it from a different point of view. We looked at customers with a lot more empathy and tried to truly understand what their overall objectives were and how we help them achieve those objectives. Instead of selling them something. It's really how we are helping them be successful in the long run

Kristin Hatcher
Operation Smile

One of the things that I'm most grateful to receive from the program is a canon of really good questions. Just being able to walk into a meeting and have in the back of my head, ‘What’s this for?’ can be so clarifying.
