We help our clients find efficiencies in processes and optimize operations to unlock growth, lower costs, and unleash their full potential. The 120VC Standard is a proven approach to unlock the potential of your team.

Our people exemplify servant leadership principles and agile practices of the 120 GSD Standard to deliver expected outcomes for our clients.
  • Enable true business agility – Need to rapidly scale up to launch a new product, project, or change initiative? We help clearly establish a shared vision, leverage the collective IQ by helping the team architect their own path to achieving that vision, a fierce focus on the alignment of outcomes to the vision, and a willingness to see failed experiments as progress.

For example, our flagship Transformational Leadership program can earn 47 PDU’s. To qualify for PDU’s you will have to complete courses with a 70% or better participation score and complete the requirements for the course or workshop certificate.

If PMI is undergrad, think of TLA as grad school. Other programs teach what they think works; we teach what’s proven to work.

The TLA follows the principles of the Kolb Model, to create an experiential learning experience. Our trainings follow a cycle of four stages: of (1) having a concrete experience followed by (2) observation of and reflection on that experience which leads to (3) the formation of abstract concepts (analysis) and generalizations (conclusions) which are then (4) used to test a hypothesis in future situations, resulting in new experiences.

Yes. We offer individuals and organizations leadership programs to unlock their potential, achieve true agility, increased efficiency, and positive team culture. If you are a large group of participants or have special requests, you might benefit from a course designed specifically for your company. We recommend learning in teams of 4 to 20 individuals.

Transformational Leadership Program (TLP)

The Transformational Leadership Program exists to develop and support a generation of leaders that aren’t reacting to the future, because they are focused on creating it.

For the past 2.5 decades, 120VC has been helping people, leaders, and their teams Get Sh*t Done that matters. We get called to assist with the implementation or turn-around of their Organizational Management Strategies, Leadership Development, and to build single, unified, high-functioning Leadership Teams for both the Fortune 500 and startups.

The Transformational Leadership Program is a 14-week, intense learning experience featuring 8 live interactive classes with break-out sessions, and a collaborative self-guided online learning cohort with other leaders that consists of 14 distinct learning modules that will transform the way you think, which in turn will transform the way you lead.

The mastermind-like leadership program is made available to the employees of 120VC clients. It’s open to the public only twice a year for high potential or high-performing individuals seeking to up their leadership game, a proving ground for leaders seeking to work at 120VC, or leaders looking to be part of a community that is transforming the way we work and win as a team. Because Transformational Leaders change things, they push the human race forward.

Transformational Leaders transcend their company's business vertical and skillset by leveraging their industry know-how and education to build single, unified, high-functioning teams 100% focused on improving customer satisfaction, team member satisfaction, and profitability without sacrificing one for the other.

Transformational Leaders transform divisional cost centers into epicenters for growth. They unify discipline-based divisions that have historically operated at odds with each other like Sales, Operations and Human Resources, into high-performing teams all working toward the common goal of improving customer satisfaction, team member satisfaction, and profitability.

Transformational Leaders have clarity of purpose and understand that things like Technology, Human Resources, Sales, Marketing & Operations aren’t the business they are in, they are tools used to grow the business they are in. They understand that things like Hospitality, Healthcare, Finance, Technology, Travel, Manufacturing, Real-estate, and Energy are the tools they provide their customers to improve their own lives, not the business they are in.

Transformational Leaders are in the business of building high-performing teams that leverage those tools to constantly improve customer satisfaction, team member satisfaction and profitability. To enable the team they lead and the team they are on to Get Shit Done that Matters.

The Transformational Leadership Program is led by Jason Scott, founder and CEO of 120VC, known as “The GSD Company”.
