The Programs

Designed for community-minded professionals who seek new skills or feel stuck in their current career situation, Vista Leadership Institute offers several leadership development courses that combine virtual learning, skill building, coaching and the opportunity for an immersive retreat in Latin America.


The Core Program offers the foundation for critical personal wayfinding for you to develop skills that strengthen leadership and social impact. Participants receive access to our exclusive online community, ten of our VLI Leadership Tools, and audio and video recordings of all live sessions.


The Mastermind program, VLI’s flagship offering allows you to more deeply explore personal wayfinding and accelerate your own leadership in action.  The program builds on the Core Program, including additional enhanced interactive training, mastermind groups and 1:1 coaching. Perfect for professionals committed to making a difference. This six-month program will transform your leadership skills and ignite your professional trajectory.


Mastermind and Core program participants who find adventure as a gateway to personal discovery, can immerse themselves in the 7-day surf and yoga retreat in Costa Rica in collaboration with fellow Certified B Corp, Bodhi Surf + Yoga.
