“Rapid Growth in a Short Time”

“The Chrysalis Program® has profoundly impacted our culture within Samsung. I am impressed with the rapid growth achieved in such a short time. Our leadership is communicating more effectively and collaborating more efficiently as a direct result of the program. To watch the unique journey of each leader — their personal evolution, increased awareness, and renewed joy for their role — has been truly rewarding.”

―Gil Heyun Choi, Executive Vice President, Samsung Electronics

“For most of us, our inner game - our internal meaning-making system, our decision-making system, our level of self-awareness and emotional intelligence, our mental models, and the inner beliefs and assumptions - lacks the capacity and maturity to thrive amid all the complexity. Hence, most of us are in way over our heads.”

―Robert J. Anderson and William A. Adams, Scaling Leadership

Who am I in this world?

You start your quest for authenticity by examining the world you’ve made for yourself as a leader and step outside of it. In doing so, you begin to develop higher self-awareness and “wake up” your authentic self.

Key Outcomes:

  • Develop self-awareness through assessments, one-on-on coaching and introspection.
  • Gain emotional intelligence about yourself - understand who you truly are.
  • Recognize that you have habitual behavior patterns.

How do I relate to myself and the world?

Key Outcomes:

  • Understand how neuroscience and your identity, attitudes, values, and behaviors impact how you are being.
  • Uncover, understand, and address your unconscious biases and lead inclusively.
  • Interrupt automatic responses and create space for choice.

"Highly Recommend"

“I have over 35 years of leadership — a very fulfilling and successful career by most people’s standards. And then I met Ron West. Ten leaders from the Allergan Operations management team went through his Chrysalis (Vertical Leadership Development) Program®. I was completely surprised at the perspective this gave me. I highly recommend this program.”

―Jack DeButts, (Former) Operations Executive, Allergan

Since 2008, top organizations have been calling on me to develop leaders with the vision, confidence, and flexibility to shape the future.

Today, the program has a proven track record of creating growth for leaders at top organizations.

What makes the
Chrysalis Program®
Different?

First, my transformation gives me both the knowledge and empathy to guide others through making deep changes. That transformation started when I was an executive myself, and my assistant told me I had left “so much damage behind me.”

Those words shook me out of complacency and overconfidence and sent me on a journey of questioning everything about myself and who I was meant to be. In that journey, I experienced countless leadership programs myself — and I learned a lot about what doesn’t work.

That made me passionate about figuring out what does work when it comes to developing future-ready leaders. How do adults learn and grow?

I found the answers in the science behind vertical development. Vertical leadership development isn’t about picking up a couple of new skills or competencies. Instead, it’s about expanding your mind and seeing things in a whole new way.

Using the ideas of vertical development, the Chrysalis Program® meets participants where they are and provides the perfect conditions for transformation. Time and again, I see the magic happen when a group or of leaders commit to changing together. They make profound shifts as individuals. But that’s only the beginning. The truly exciting part is how they spread that positive change to so many others.

And that’s why I love what I do. The Chrysalis Program® allows me to use my expertise and experience to change the world by changing leaders.

It will guide you to strike the right balance between challenge and support, not simply to add more strategies to your toolset, but to grow vertically so you can better lead in complexity - to be a future-ready leader.
