Why Monark

Transforming how leaders learn.

The Science of Behavior Change

Behaviour change and habit building is really hard work.


Leadership skills have been noted as some of the hardest to learn, yet have the highest impact in terms of results. So we don't want to downplay the tricky nature of skill development, but rather emphasize that because it's so hard, it requires a continuous commitment. Our evidence-based process taps into the underlying psychology of leaders to drive change. We know our model works because it is strongly informed by other domains, like weight loss and sports psychology.

The Monark experience offers a cyclical, continuous experience for leaders by adopting a multi-faceted approach to learning and training, incorporating only the most effective components that each uniquely predict leadership results.

Habit formation

Adopting a new habit requires not only learning about the importance of a behavior or skill and how to perform it, but also practicing it in the real world, taking the time to reflect on what was done well and what could be improved.

Challenges with traditional training

Despite the billions of dollars being poured into leadership development efforts globally, we’re still seeing gross ethical misconduct, high CEO turnover, and prevalent workplace bullying. Worse, 75% of US workers say their boss is the most stressful part of their day. We sum up the failures into two key problems: Training is episodic and focuses on learning, not the transfer or learning; and secondly, we don't train leaders early enough in their careers.
