the course connects the idea to the realities of leadership and teamwork.
PSL is an experiential workshop. While there are plenty of new models and readings provided, the course connects the idea to the realities of leadership and teamwork.

The most dynamic relationship modeling workshop that I have experienced where learning is only limited by one’s willingness to participate.

I guarantee it’ll be the best change experience you ever have
Yay! Another PSL is scheduled. You should go. I guarantee it’ll be the best change experience you ever have. I’ve been to it, and 5 or 6 change shops (AYE etc) since 2010 and not a day goes by I don’t get an ‘aha!’ moment.
the 10th anniversary of when I attended this and not a day goes by where an ‘aha!’ moment doesn’t bubble up to the surface
We’re coming up on the 10th anniversary of when I attended this and not a day goes by where an ‘aha!’ moment doesn’t bubble up to the surface. If you’re looking for an experience where a bunch of talking head experts will fill you with great ideas over PowerPoint, look elsewhere. If you want an experience that’ll push your boundaries of thinking, this is for you.
It helped me discover many faulty assumptions about myself as well as several epiphanies
I was lucky enough to go in 2000. It helped me discover many faulty assumptions about myself as well as several epiphanies about why I was good in some areas of my career.
Still learning nine years later
Nine years later, I’m still learning from my PSL experience. I received valuable insights into my own behaviours as a leader. I have used those insights many times over the past nine years. Every time I look back, I learn new things or am reminded. PSL was the best investment in my personal growth, and I would recommend it to anyone.
PSL provides time and space for deep reflection on your personal impact on the ability of teams to collaborate.
exercise based learning experience
PSL is an exercise based learning experience where you meet fantastic people while learning how to create environments where all team members can contribute creatively.
wealth of personal awareness
It provided me with a wealth of personal awareness of how my leadership style affects my teams’ working environment.
what’s great about it
It will be uncomfortable and that is exactly what’s great about it.
PSL is a unique opportunity to practice leadership in a safe and supportive environment with fantastic and diverse people. You get what you put in. You will learn new things about yourself there … or later.
opportunity to deeply explore
This workshop gives an opportunity to deeply explore different facets of leadership and yourself.
the most experiential learning
By far the most experiential learning I’ve attended where you get to decide your learning. Your perception of leadership will be enhanced.
draw out insights
Esther and Don have saint-like patience and the best poker faces in the business. Their ability to observe and help draw out insights is so valuable compared to facilitators who just plain give information. Thank you!
look beyond the surface
PSL will teach you how to look beyond the surface level and deeply analyze group behaviors, leading to a more cohesive and well formed team.
months to process and put into use
PSL is transformative. It will take months to process and put into use all that I learned.
A transformation experience. I think I will realize how much I learned over the coming months.
Brilliantly designed and unexpected.
Mind bending experience
Mind bending experience that will make you more conscious about strengths and learning opportunities as a leader.
important six days
It will be the most important six days of your professional life.
