Propel Organizational Growth
Develop the Ideas and the People to Propel them
Since 2006, Mohr Collaborative has helped organizations prepare their emerging leaders to recognize opportunities, drive innovation, and deliver long-term organizational success. At the heart of Mohr Collaborative is our commitment to empower individuals to grow, create, and lead effectively. By encouraging, guiding, and teaching people to develop and capitalize on their personal and collective strengths, we build sustainable competitive advantage for the organization.
Our flagship innovation leadership program, that we have developed and refined over 10 years for some of the largest financial services firms in the world, integrates workshops and coaching in all of the skills required to drive new ideas from conception to market. Our clients use it as a turnkey solution for high-potential development, customized for their organization.
We also offer the components separately or in combination, as presented in this catalog, for organizations that wish to focus or supplement their existing learning and development programs.
The difference we offer is a staff of practitioners with the rare combination of industry knowledge, entrepreneurial experience in large and small organizations, and executive coaching expertise. Our primary goal is that participants in our programs feel that they have grown personally and professionally.
Develop Leaders who innovate
Learning Through Success
This is the flagship program that Citi, Merrill Lynch, and PNC have used for their high-potential development. It embeds leadership skills development inside real experience driving new opportunities for growth.
Through its combination of workshops, team coaching, and individual coaching, the program integrates nearly all our other offerings. Participants learn to think like executives, practicing leadership skills including scenario-based thinking, strategic alignment, organizational networking, influencing others, and team effectiveness.
Leveraging our experience guiding hundreds of teams through this process, Mohr Collaborative coaches seamlessly integrate skill development and performance coaching. The immersive approach ensures that participants learn exactly what they need in their organization in order to conceive and execute a new business idea with measurable ROI.
The program complements existing innovation pipelines and serves as a foundation for building organizational innovation capacity. It can be adapted for individual business units, multiple units within a single organization, or multiple organizations.

Leadership Development for High Potentials
High-potential employees see opportunities but typically lack the perspective, the skills, or the organizational knowledge to get from idea to reality. We help them build those capabilities while they deliver tangible results.
We design and execute a custom program for your leaders that gives them the experience of driving an innovation from idea to business plan while ensuring that they develop such leadership skills as strategic thinking and collaboration. The program serves your talent development and retention goals and reflects your current and future business, your corporate strategy, and your culture. It also pays for itself.
Many companies think of leadership development programs as a cost center or, at best, an investment in their talent. Our clients think of it as a revenue source. Examples include:
- A new trading desk that captured millions of dollars in revenues previously being handed to competitors
- A new way for emerging markets retailers to reach ex-pats and expand internationally
- A way for large consumer products companies to collect cash from small retailers via mobile banking
- A new method for pricing a product that made it highly competitive without reducing margins
- An internal application that radically reduced the time and effort required to match rapidly changing inventory with customer profiles
We focus on the skills that have proven to be most critical and most difficult to learn except from experience. The difference between our programs and other innovation training is the difference between participants saying “I’ve learned some good techniques I’d like to try out” and saying “My team did it, that product is ours, and I could do it again.” Learning through success gives top talent the challenge and the reward they need. As one client said “innovation is about believing that it can be done.” From their experience, participants take that belief back to their day jobs – they become innovation leaders.
Successful results depend on two things: creating the right environment and providing teams appropriate and timely support. Our clients find that our total focus on these two factors makes the difference.
