Pricing Adjusted by United Nations IHDI

At, we're committed to making our leadership development programs accessible and affordable for leaders worldwide. To achieve this, we've introduced a tiered pricing structure based on the United Nations Inequality-adjusted Human Development Index (IHDI).

Pricing Tiers by Country (Based on IHDI):

  • Group 1: 100% of list price
  • Group 2: 80% of list price
  • Group 3: 60% of list price
  • Group 4: 50% of list price

The Inequality-Adjusted Human Development Index (IHDI) is calculated by adjusting the Human Development Index (HDI) for inequality in each dimension. The Inequality-Adjusted Human Development Index (IHDI) considers inequality in three dimensions:

  1. Health - Measured by life expectancy at birth. This dimension acknowledges that longer, healthier lives indicate a better quality of life and greater human development.
  2. Education - This dimension has two indicators:
    • Mean years of schooling for adults aged 25 years and older.
    • Expected years of schooling for children entering school.
  3. Standard of living - Measured by Gross National Income (GNI) per capita. The GNI per capita reflects the average income of a country's citizens.

Generative Adaptive Practice (GAP)

Anchored in Ubuntu Principles and Values

The Ubuntu philosophy is the cornerstone of building a people-positive culture.  Ubuntu is the African philosophy of interconnectedness and shared humanity, ‘I am because we are’ – Archbishop Desmond Tutu. The principle enlightens us to see everyone as fully human, connected by humanity, so we can treat others as having immense worth. By embracing the philosophy of Ubuntu and living it out in daily life, it’s possible for us to overcome division and be stronger together in a world where wise people build bridges and not walls.

Learn to become a generative leader – be confident, show empathy, and effectively lead diverse teams globally and in your community.
