Our Methodology

Unique partnership. Complementary frameworks. Transformative programs.

Managing requires that you negotiate effectively with other people. Leading demands that you negotiate successfully with yourself.

We believe that organizational change can’t be separated from individual change. Change efforts falter because individuals overlook the importance of making fundamental shifts in their own belief systems. To keep pace with the change around them, leaders need to identify their own inner compass – and learn how to bring forward their unique style, gifts and presence so that they can be their best self.

Our programs focus on the process of self-discovery, self-development and self-realization. We hope to unleash the leadership capabilities that accelerate executives’ ability to thrive – both individually and across their organizations.

The programs share a common framework, a highly experiential Intensive built around the New York Times best-selling leadership book, WINNING FROM WITHIN: A BREAKTHROUGH METHOD FOR LEADING, LIVING AND LASTING CHANGE®, authored by Mobius’s Chief Thought Leader, Erica Ariel Fox, which synthesizes her 20 years of research conducted at Harvard Law School and her leadership advisory to senior executives worldwide. Considered a seminal work in leadership and executive development, the WINNING FROM WITHIN® approach targets the blind spots found in even the most senior of leaders. Guided by expert faculty, the Intensive explores the root causes of each leader’s most critical “Performance Gap,” the disconnect between one’s optimized skills and behaviors and one’s actual behavior in a given situation or challenging moment. Leaders learn who they are when they are operating at their best, versus their “everyday” self, and how to close that gap.

The WINNING FROM WITHIN® approach correlates with Egon Zehnder’s proprietary Potential model, a proven assessment tool that gauges and quantifies the long-term leadership trajectory probability for leaders to succeed in future roles.

Both WINNING FROM WITHIN® and the Potential Model are used to assess where the leader is today, who they can become and also to help them discover how they can become their best.

We believe that it is hard to guide and lead anyone to places in themselves that you have not been able to journey and unlock in yourself. These Programs ask leaders to do the hard but vital work of looking candidly at their own life's journey and taking inventory of what strengths have formed and what habits are ready to dissolve to allow for a higher, freer and more inspiring expression of their full potential.  It is an alchemical process that is quite moving to witness and often profoundly impactful for the leader and the organizations they serve.

Winning From Within® is based on its author's nearly twenty years of experience teaching negotiation at Harvard Law School and that same time spent training professionals around the world and providing strategic counseling and conflict mediation to top teams.
