We don’t teach theory – we transfer actionable knowledge that drive outcomes.

Whether it’s conducting short, immersive, onsite workshops to give your IT team the latest in Cognitive/AI knowledge, or scaling the capabilities of your executive leadership team, we are setting the standard for next generation learning.

Creating great leaders and leadership teams is not a one-dimensional practice. Rather, it requires skill-sets, competencies and a knowledge base that extends across a variety of relationships, platforms, mediums, and other key strategic constituencies.

Together, let’s do something unheard of – pioneer next practices through our real connections and experiences, that only N2I can provide.


Three Levels of Unmatched Leader Development

N2 Leader Academy Proven Behavior Change Process:

Behavior Change Process

The N2 Leader Academy Showcase is a grand revolution in leader development. It is the total reinvention of deliberately building leaders. Foundational leadership principles have remained largely the same since the dawn of time. The N2 Leader Academy Showcase utilizes a proven process to integrate these principles, with evolutionary practices, into your everyday life.

Through the N2 Leader Academy, we create new milestones in the search of excellence; expanding beyond current ‘best’ practices in pursuit of living a fully-fledged lifestyle of leadership. Each Academy works harmoniously with the next to create flexibility and generating results you can see. The N2 Leader Academy Showcase is for leaders who desire to close the gap on their vulnerabilities and gain a clearer perspective on their impact as a leader, at all levels of the organization.Through convertible levels, we utilize professional onsite instruction, followed by aligning roles and performance through a revolutionary online platform, and a mentored intra-company internship to foster behaviors through the leader development cycle.


Today's leaders are a diverse group of functionally and operationally specialized individuals.

Despite the natural differences found across functional and operational lines, there is a compelling need for a deliberate and common approach to leader development, progression, and the assumption of increased supervisory and leadership responsibilities.

The N2 Leader Academy Showcase provides a consistent, well-defined set of expectations and opportunities for the growth of all leaders, regardless of position. This relies on creating a common language and solid foundation of character principles and evolutionary business practices. We are leaders first, professionals always.
