Established in 1999, the Stagen Leadership Academy trains leaders who are committed to long-term personal development and using their organizational platforms for positive impact. We specialize in delivering high accountability programs for leaders serious about changing themselves as well as their organizations. Our members reject conventional “silver bullet” approaches to leadership development and choose the path of disciplined practice.

In 387 BC, Plato established the first university in the Western world, called the “Academy.” He based it on the notion that each person has the potential for greatness born of self-knowledge. Inspired by this classical Greek approach, our training programs are designed to expand a leader’s capacity for wisdom, compassion, and courage.

​Higher Purpose

At Stagen, we’re committed to the rare breed of leader who envisions the work to be done over ten, twenty, or even thirty years — thinking in decades, not years. We serve Conscious Capitalists who recognize the power of indefinite time horizons, and who feel called to use their organizational platforms for long-term positive impact.
