Akimbo Emerging Leaders Program is a 5-day online program for college students who are looking to lead in the future of work.
About the Program
For the longest time, school has been organized around subjects instead of skills. We go to math class to learn to pass a test about binomials. But, in reality, most of us won’t use binomials later in life. What we actually learn in math class is problem-solving—a skill that is very important later in life.
Akimbo believes that education is different than learning. Education is mandatory. Learning is something you choose to do.
The Emerging Leaders Program is for college students who are looking to learn real skills. The ones that will set them apart when they apply for jobs and lead in the future of work.
The group will meet online virtually through Zoom video chat starting at 10 am ET each day of the program.
The program includes a few hours a day of group conversation led by our remarkable Akimbo coaches, and then a full day of group work done with your team via video chat.
You’ll need to be all in, with no other plans for the entire week. There’s no end time for the program each day because you and your group get to create your schedule and decide what you want to achieve before each day’s project is due at midnight ET.
Best-selling author and founder of Akimbo, Seth Godin, will join the cohort for a special discussion on Friday, the final day of the program.
