Immersion Experience

Leadership Boot Camp

For leaders and change agents who want exposure and access to internationally renowned communication tools, Next Element offers an immersion experience. It’s a powerful, two-day, high-intensity event designed to boost skills for positive conflict and effective communication. Bookended by pre-immersion assessment/goal-setting and post-immersion coaching sessions, it is truly a customized leadership boot camp.

Next Element’s immersion event is fast-paced, intense, deep, revealing, empowering, focused, challenging and initially a little terrifying. I went in feeling like I was channeling my 10-year-old, go-to-camp, kicking-and-screaming self. I left feeling 10 feet tall. You go in with communication pain, and come out with a prescription for success.

For individual leaders, the immersion will help you discover your personal motivation, communication and conflict patterns. It will dramatically improve your communication effectiveness with different personalities in conflict in your company or organization.

For teams, this experience will be one of the most revealing, empowering team-development initiatives you’ve ever undertaken.

I left feeling like I could be more authentic and approachable with my team, and better at understanding others and negotiating conflict. I believe I can trade anger and disappointment when things don’t go well for self-awareness, intentionality in how I communicate and compassionate accountability. Bottom line, this immersion will make me a more agile and effective leader because I can quickly identify leadership behavior patterns that undermine my company’s success.

Immersion events are located and scheduled to maximize efficiency for busy leaders. They’re designed to create a challenging, cohort type of experience for leaders seeking to gain self-awareness and expand the boundaries of their leadership effectiveness. Every immersion is facilitated by Dr. Nate Regier, Next Element CEO and Co-Founding owner, and author of two books on leadership communication and conflict. Cohort size is limited to facilitate the highest quality experience.

As an attorney and domestic mediator, I have found what I learned to be essential in dealing with recent high stress, intense negotiations. Did it give me all the answers? No. Did it help me navigate the treacherous waters of human interaction with all under stress? Well, on a scale of 1 to 10, maybe, like a thousand or so.

Post-Immersion Coaching

A follow-up session with Dr. Regier reviews goal progress, homework assignments, follow-up questions, and provides reinforcement for new skills.

Note: Follow-up sessions for in-tact team immersions can be done in a group or individual setting, as desired.
