Check out highlights from this amazing conference we hosted recently!

FliP Plane

FliP U brings you fun, useful, evidence-based learning that fuels collaboration, enhances creativity, and develops today’s essential workplace capabilities.

We focus on THE MOST important things that people and organizations need now.

Based on the book Leadership is Half the Story, which FliPs thinking from leader-centric to partner-centric by including followership in the equation.


Because you're not leading if no one is following!

We obsessively curate content that is rooted in science. We pay special attention to the threshold concepts that stimulate deep learning, changes your forever thinking and develops skills. So content isn’t just passively consumed. Each course is designed by a globally recognized subject-matter expert, a neuroscientist, and our talented team of learning experts: this is our wolfpack!

Our pracademic content (that is practical + academic) and in-course coaching makes the difference for a highly interactive learning experience: helping people connect the dots, encouraging conversation, and creating a safe zone to share experiences, AHA’s, and ask questions.


Best when taken as a team

Exponential learning is possible when teams learn together because it fosters shared accountability and creates a shared language and toolset. Team installations and programs can be customized to make them most salient for your people. We get rave reviews about our learning from people who love the community and camaraderie it also builds.
  • "Having led L&D departments for over 15 years and spent 10 as an instructional designer, I can say with some expertise behind me, that this is the best online course I have ever taken. Hands down -  everything from the right-length videos to the highly memorable analogies were superb.  Fantastic!”

    - Linda, MA Instructional Design
