Frequently Asked questions

Why be involved in a cohort?

There is significant power in the gathering of true peers that leads to leader and organizational health and accelerated results. Leaders always need this kind of support, challenge and encouragement, but perhaps now, more than ever.

How will the cohorts meet?

LeadWell Cohorts include multiple live in person meetings, group online updates, continued access to seasoned and caring mentors and curated leadership resources.

Who participates in the cohort?

You will be joined by 10-12 vetted senior leaders grouped by organizational size and lifestage. Some of the best learning comes through interaction with leaders from other disciplines. You will have access to subject matter experts in areas as broad as business, science and the arts that share success in their area that leads to application in your context.

Are there any guides or leaders of the cohort?

Not only do you have the support and insight of your peers, each group is served by mentors. These leaders see their role and calling as helping you to avoid some of the dumb tax they have already paid.

Are the cohorts relevant to today’s challenges?

Absolutely. You have led through one of the most difficult seasons this world has ever faced in the midst of a global pandemic, seeking to discern what’s next and what’s the new normal? And though some things are becoming clear, there are still a lot of unanswered questions. Participating in a LeadWell Cohort prevents you from leading in isolation and provides a diverse set of perspectives on some common leadership challenges and opportunities.

“Without exaggeration, Greg Ligon’s invitation into a peer cohort was ‘ministry saving’ for me as a leader and ‘ministry releasing’ for us as a church. His ability to gather true peers and provide access to C-level leaders in other sectors as a learning tool is without comparison. The leaders I have met and the insights I have gained have been beyond comparison.”

“By putting us together with other like minded peers and forward thinking churches, Greg was instrumental in changing our trajectory. He helped us develop our multisite model that has allowed Lives Changed By Christ to grow to over 23,000 people meeting in nineteen locations across the state of Pennsylvania.”

David Ashcraft
Senior Pastor
Lives Changed By Christ, Lancaster, PA

“My longtime friend and colleague Greg Ligon knows peer learning. He has led the design and execution of groups that help Senior Leaders get better and go further together than you would ever go alone. The groups he has led have advanced kingdom innovation and fruit in the areas of multisite, leadership development, and other new path-breaking innovation. Why not connect with the best?”
