Project Ascendance Structure

A combination of real time classroom instruction, self-paced learning and small group sessions. Project Ascendance is an immersive leadership and community to help entrepreneurial leaders gain the skills, networks, confidence, and reflection on where they want to play.
There are four components to the course
  • 1. Build trust
  • 2. Create a mission
  • 3. Recruit a high performing team
  • 4. Get results
In addition, you will be put into small groups so you can “huddle” and push your idea forward. This will be a safe space to draw together for informal conversation, ask questions, and make mistakes. We find strength and comfort from leaning on each other.
