Scaling Depth:
A Case Study in Translating Executive Leadership Development to M-Learning
with Zach Schlosser & David Lesser
Do you think M-Learning is for technical education, on-boarding, or compliance training? Sure, but it can have a much greater impact when utilized to bring an organizations’ leadership and EQ trainings to employees at lower levels of the organization than would otherwise be financially feasible.

You'll Learn By Doing


In this experiential talk, you'll get hands-on experience with the Emerge! mobile app ( and work through translating the frameworks, exercises, and personalized benefits of one-on-one executive coaching into an immersive, social app. Like coaching, Emerge! draws upon users own experiences and through guided visualization, journaling, video role play, and other activities, aims to develop self-awareness, leadership character traits, effective decision making, and relational skill in employees throughout an organization.

A 3-Part Event

  1. Learn the basic framework and methods developed by Executive Coach David Lesser to help clients transform their character liabilities into character strengths.
  2. Experience the Emerge! app for yourself.
  3. Open space discussion and Q&A based on participants’ own work conditions and goals.
Who should come? | What Will I Learn?
  • Instructional designers, E-Learning & M-Learning Specialists will gain insight and develop their own perspective on what  does and does not translate well into the app.
  • Department Heads of HR and Learning/People Development (CLOs) will walk away with new ideas about scaling leadership and talent development across multiple company teams, regardless of the diversity of teams’ specific responsibilities.
  • Managers and Organizational Development Practitioners will gain new insight about transforming small groups or whole companies into flatter, more sociocratic, holarchical, and empowered organizations.
  • Trainers and Coaches will gain insights into how they can improve their teaching and direct coaching based on the framework and skills presented.
