What is the Hive Global Leaders Program?
Hive is a global community of leaders and entrepreneurs who are working on creating a better world and are committed to something bigger than themselves.
We created the community two years ago out of a simple wish that something like it existed. To join the community, you attend the three-day Hive Global Leaders Program which is a world-class leadership training program for mission-driven leaders, innovators, and entrepreneurs held at the Innovation Hangar at the Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco.
Hive is an opportunity to work together with diverse peers from all over the world who are passionate about using their life to make a big contribution while still being grounded in living happy and healthy lives of joy and service.
Hive isn’t a regular conference at all, but instead is a rapidly prototyped in-person three-day collaboration with extraordinarily talented creatives and innovators from 30+ countries designed to welcome you into an extremely high quality peer network for you throughout the rest of your life regardless of where you travel or what journey you take. The Hive community will always be with you wherever you go. At Hive, there are few handshakes and business cards exchanged, and a lot of hugs and lifelong deep relationships formed.
Hive Global Leaders so far include CEOs of $250 million companies, award-winning Ashoka Fellows, elected leaders, neuroscientists, Olympic Gold Medalists, Rwandan genocide-survivors turned inspiring public speakers, technology entrepreneurs, Harvard and Stanford professors, Sudanese refugees turned scientists, renewable energy investors, Nepalese activists, World Economic Forum Young Global Leaders, IDEO design thinkers, top engineers from Facebook, Google, and Apple, World Bank and UN researchers, venture capitalists, Virgin Galactic astronauts, and many more extraordinary leaders working to create a better world.
To get a sense of the high-level peers and internationally diverse attendees who attend Hive, check out the Spring 2016 Hive Attendee List and the Fall 2016 Attendee List. Over half of Hive attendees are from outside the United States and over half are CEOs, Co-founders, Managing Directors, Executive Directors or Presidents of their organizations. What each attendee has in common is a shared passion for creating a better world.
What Will I Learn?
grandglobalchallengesThe Hive Global Leaders Program is designed to educate and connect extraordinary people who are making a big positive impact in the world. The curriculum has been built for mission-driven leaders and entrepreneurs who are dedicated to creating a future that is radically better than the present.
The Hive curriculum has been influenced by the Harvard Business School MBA program, the Singularity University Executive Program, the Stanford d.school, the Harvard Graduate Student Leadership Institute, Ashoka: Innovators for the Public, The Landmark Curriculum for Living, the Art of Living Foundation, and the work of Google X pioneer, Tom Chi.
On day one we look at what is happening in the world. We look at the Global Grand Challenges, look at how humanity is doing across health, education, economics, happiness, and the environment, look into the future of science and technology and the biggest opportunities for millennials, work together on the principles upon which we might redesign the global system, and experience a rapid prototyping workshop with Tom Chi.
On day two we discuss what is happening your life, look at your health and wellness and your financial plan, go through a Designing Your Life Workshop, create your goals, reevaluate your habits, and create your personal one page plan.
Finally on day three we look at what is happening in your work and learn about authentic leadership and scaling an entrepreneurial organization, cover expansion stage sales and marketing, hold a Hive Unconference, and end the day with each participant framing their one page life plan and presenting their purpose to the group.
After Hive, you will have new ideas and frameworks to take back to your daily life that will make you a more effective leader, and you’ll be part of a global lifelong community of leaders working together on solving humanity’s greatest challenges. Whether you are extremely successful and established in your position, or ready to transition toward a new place in your career, you will leave Hive with greater clarity on how your work can positively affect your community and the world.
