Introducing LeaderSurf LLC, a leadership development program like no other. Developing leadership capability is core to an organization’s long term success. While there is a sea of programs that claim to develop leadership competency, LeaderSurf takes a new approach.

LeaderSurf is a leadership development program based on experiential learning and focused on enhancing leadership capability. LeaderSurf is a unique week-long leadership development program that brings together like-minded professionals for a week of self-improvement, executive coaching and life coaching. The structured program provides a unique learning opportunity with life skills that will translate into better career performance. The program is held at Playa Santana in Nicaragua, Central America. LeaderSurf incorporates learning to surf or enhancing surfing skills into the development program curriculum. Surfing serves as an excellent metaphor for learning to be a better leader. Through a partnership with Waves For Water, LeaderSurf participants will also engage in a humanitarian effort to bring access to clean drinking water to local villages in Nicaragua.

According to Brian Formato, President of LeaderSurf “Self-awareness is a strength that every leader needs to learn to leverage. Self-awareness is best developed when we put ourselves in new environments and gain exposure to new experiences. LeaderSurf aims to enhance leadership capability and self-awareness through experiential education. Learning to surf will make you a better leader."

The LeaderSurf programs are geared toward senior level business executives. C-Suite leaders in small to mid sized companies as well as division leadership in large organizations will benefit most from the LeaderSurf program. In our conversations with Chief HR Officers and Chief Learning Officers, we find that corporations are seeking experiential learning opportunities for their senior leaders. CEOs of smaller companies would benefit from the interactions with other business leaders from diverse industries.

In addition to leading LeaderSurf, Brian Formato also runs Groove Management LLC a human capital consulting firm.
