We have expectations for how everyone treats each other in our Live Online Classes.


To sum it up in five words: be a decent human being. 


Let’s break it down: 

  • Welcome people as they are. All of our classes are designed to help you become the leader you wish you had. In order to grow, you need to feel safe to share who you really are and to take risks. We believe in acceptance and in diversity of perspective—this includes race, color, gender, religion, national origin, ancestry, disability, age, sexual orientation, or any other characteristic that makes you you

  • Keep it human. Acknowledge that there are always human beings on the other side of the screen. Act with curiosity, respect, and empathy. You don’t need to agree with everything someone is saying, but you always have the choice to respect them. Make that choice. 

  • Come to learn. We’re all students of leadership. Assume you always have more to learn. 

  • Show up to give. Our classes are live and interactive, often using breakout rooms. The value generated in them depends upon your participation, not solely for you, but for the others in the group. While we most definitely encourage people to connect during the class (it’s one of the ways a community is formed), refrain from soliciting business in the class, breakout rooms, chat, and thereafter. Show up to give and serve, not to take.

  • Keep personal details confidential. Due to the nature of our classes, you may hear personal information about others. Honor that responsibility and choose to keep the information you hear private and in confidence. Las Vegas rules apply… what you hear in our classes stays in our classes. The concepts and insights you learn, however, please feel free to share widely. That’s how we can all build a more inspired, safe, and fulfilled world together. 

            If your conduct violates the above guidelines, and what it means to be decent and respectful of others, you will be removed from the session.

Thank you,

Team Simon
