What is it?

The Magenta Course is a 9 week online & interactive program with videos, downloads, exercises, live Q&A calls, and personal coaching and mentoring. It shows you how to grow your creativity and leadership in revolutionary ways.

Who is it for?

This is for leaders and visionaries who have experienced their personal limits. They find conventional wisdom and guidance insufficient and need a way to systematically transform their limitations and become highly skilled, highly creative, and highly impactful.

How do I participate?

You receive your own account and can log in to the course platform any time. From there, you can access all course materials, videos, downloads, get help, register for the Q&A calls, and request one-on-one coaching.

How does it work?

You watch the videos, read the materials, and do all the step by step exercises. Questions? Ask in the community platform, attend the live Q&A calls, or contact us directly. Follow the steps, do the exercises, and get results.

When does it start?

You get access to the online course as soon as you enroll. You can complete the course in your own time, or take the accelerated path by running one module per week. You are a member for life, and get membership benefits such as access to workshops, events, and participation in projects.

Why does it exist?

We noticed that no one had cracked the code on how to build the core human capabilities needed to actually create new realities and solutions to the toughest institutional and social challenges. It's the missing piece, so we're providing it.

The Magenta Course Content

A logical and systematic progression

A well-organized structure makes learning enjoyable, systematic, reliable, and fun. The Magenta Course is designed to begin with essentials and build on those foundations. Everything later builds on earlier layers so that you get the "full stack," from inner work to massive change.

Structure of course as rings

The Path: From Self to World

I. Starting the journey (week 1)

First things first: getting ready, planting the seed, charting the course. This is the kernel.

II. Work on self (weeks 2, 3)

We begin with forging the instrument that is you. Everything you think and do comes from within — so we start here to make you fit for purpose for your next stage in life, work, and service.

III. Become a creative force (week 4)

The higher self in motion becomes a truly unstoppable creative force. Learn how creation works in nature, art, and social practice, and develop your own creative practices and superpowers.

IV. Working with others (weeks 5, 6, 7)

Working in groups of two or more brings out both the best and worst of everyone. In these weeks, we master communication, teamwork, leadership, and social health — not just in theory, but in practice and for real.

V. Organizations & societies (weeks 8, 9)

Mature leadership often means helping organizations, institutions, communities, or even societies. These weeks focus on creating meaningful change at larger scales.

"Through my work with Magenta I was able to explore my own aspiration and abilities, and how that did or did not line up with my work. I also learned several practices with which I am beginning to come out of the cerebral and into the lived experience of my challenge. I return often to the work we did together to help re-situate myself, and always find new layers of insight. "

“We partnered with Magenta to co-lead our development program for senior executives in one of Australia’s largest companies. The Magenta team played a highly significant role in curriculum development and overall leadership of the program.  We were enormously pleased with the quality of Magenta’s contribution to the project.  Magenta understands both the big picture as well as the nuts and bolts for successful inner leadership development.  Highly recommended."
