Winning in today's markets requires new ways to think about business and deliver results. The Executive Challenge Course (ECC) is a breakthrough program designed for one purpose: to have global executives achieve significant goals in their business.

During this 10-month program, leaders take on the challenges and deliver the outcomes most critical to their business–exciting breakthroughs that may seem unattainable today. And along the way, they learn a proven framework that will enable them to deliver breakthrough outcomes over and over again into the future. Executives begin the process by learning Gap International's methodology for producing breakthrough results, refined and proven over 35 years. They design and commit to a desirable, purposeful outcome that may seem impossible today—this is what makes it a breakthrough.

Each successive program meeting builds on the last, and provides concentrated learning, practice, and application to the real-time business issues that emerge. The program leaders relentlessly pursue the change in mindset needed for each executive in each session. Participants challenge and contribute to each other. Over time, they discover how much they can achieve and the significant impact they can have on their organizations.

The Executive Challenge Course is a transformational growth experience. Leaders emerge significantly changed—with new inspiration, breakthrough execution abilities, and leadership strengths—having produced significant results in their business.
