The Xcelerator: a 6-month part-time leadership programme

The Xcelerator is a 6-month part-time leadership programme run by ALX that turns managers into high impact leaders and empowers them to fast track their growth.


It synthesizes the AL Groups 14 years of leadership expertise and apply its proven transformational leadership model to deliver 4 foundations of impactful leadership.

Self Leadership 

“Be your best self” by managing your time, prioritizing, and setting goals aligned to your purpose and role.

People Leadership

“Bring out the best in others” by setting expectations, giving feedback, managing conflict, and guiding collaboration.

Commercial Leadership

“Drive the business” by building a high output culture of financial management and project management.

Strategic Leadership

“Connect to the big picture” by understanding your business and how your team contributes to your growth and profitability.

The Model

Xcelerator participants are taken through a six-phase module over 12 days of in-person intensives. They will be equipped with tools and frameworks to use in their organizations, undergo leadership challenges to directly apply their learning to real projects, and perform leadership diagnostics to best evaluate their performances.

Participants from conservation organizations can either sign up for dedicated conservation cohorts or join their peers from a range of sectors in one of several cohorts each year. In dedicated cohorts, the programme for conservation professionals is augmented with case studies from the sector to contextualize concepts taught in each module.
