    It’s an incredibly exciting time for the life science industry. Today, more than ever, our clients have drug candidates entering late stages of development. We are celebrating the approvals of their innovative drugs and supporting them as they begin to commercialize these products in the market. The life science industry remains complex as access to capital continues to be challenging, global partnering relationships are established, and companies finalize their back-to-work policies. This fast-paced and ever-changing environment has provided us with an outstanding opportunity to redevelop our From the Laboratory to Leadership program, building off of 34 years of success with over 7,500 graduates from over 1000 life science companies. This fully redesigned program continues to turn science-minded, first-time managers, as well as managers seeking to expand their management skills, into capable business leaders. We accomplish this by leveraging our extensive industry-specific knowledge and experience to utilize the most progressive and engaging professional development methods available.

    From the Laboratory to Leadership begins by helping participants assess who they are as leaders – their strengths, styles, and personal brand. From there, we develop skills in the areas of communication, priority management, meeting management, goal setting and planning, delegation, performance management, and leading teams in a dynamic workplace. We wrap up the program in a fashion that brings all the learning together in a fun and impactful way. To drive high levels of engagement and impact, this program integrates learning pods, encourages participants to use their companies as learning labs, and helps clients set goals that deliver measurable results.

    CEO Cornerstone, by Biocom California and The Leadership Edge

    Biocom, San Diego, CA

    Introducing CEO Cornerstone by Biocom California and The Leadership Edge

    This new program developed by Biocom California, in partnership with The Leadership Edge, is tailored just for life science CEOs and the unique challenges they face in this ever-changing industry.

    CEO Cornerstone is a peer-to-peer leadership development program that features customized and highly relevant content created by The Leadership Edge—our company that specializes in leadership development for life science companies. Over the past 30 years, we have worked with more than 1,000 companies.

    This is not a standard networking program. CEO Cornerstone lasts 12 months, is a forum facilitated by experts, and uses programming backed by science. CEOs will find a space to meet with vetted peers of non-competing companies where they can build authentic connections and forge a confidential circle of trusted advisors. The program is curated in a way that attendees won’t have to worry about details such as scheduling.

    Meetings will take place in person and require a time commitment of 2.5 hours a month.

    We are accepting applications for our second cohort of CEOs on a rolling basis. CEOs of qualifying companies for this cohort include:

    • Companies that are San Diego-based
    • Have 10+ employees
    • Received 1+ round of seed funding

    This cohort will include 12-15 CEOs.

    Leadership Effectiveness and Development (LEaD)

    Our Leadership Effectiveness and Development program is tech-enabled, human-centric leadership coaching that supports you and your team 

    Life science leaders play a crucial role in driving organizational success. In a small, 3-6 member cohort learning environment tailored to enhance leadership skills, participants can effectively lead and contribute to their team’s growth. The Leadership Effectiveness and Development (LEaD) program provides a platform for facilitated learning within a supportive cohort, allowing individuals to learn from each other and maintain accountability. Positioned as a cost-effective solution, LEaD falls between 1-on-1 coaching and larger classroom-style learning, offering a balanced approach to leadership development. With guidance from an executive coach/facilitator and the accountability provided by a 360-degree feedback process, participants will enhance their leadership abilities. The LEaD program utilizes the EQ 360®, a scientifically validated tool, to identify transformational leadership attributes essential for fostering high-performance teams. This program equips life sciences leaders with the skills and insights to drive meaningful change resulting in accelerated performance within their organizations. 

    The 4 Tenants of Transformational Leadership: 

    • Authenticity 
    • Insightfulness 
    • Coaching 
    • Innovation 

    Features: 

    • An intimate learning environment with 3-6 members, tailored to enhance leadership skills by learning how to effectively both lead, and personally contribute to their team’s growth.  
    • Opportunities to work cross functionally with other leaders in your organization to gain a greater awareness of goals and responsibilities, more effectively negotiate for resources that align with the organization’s priorities, increase cross organizational communication, and enhance trusting and collaborative relationships between functions. 
    • Development of transformational leadership behaviors that help individuals to become a leader who is both competent and capable to drive meaningful change. 
    • Real-life leadership scenarios as real-time learning experiences. 
    • Peer feedback, growth deliverables, and group accountability which form the backbone of the cohort experience 
    • Monthly 360 Feedback to highlight leadership blind spots and capture true leadership impact 

    Includes: 

    • A blend of curriculum, coaching, peer learning, and accountability 
    • EQ 360® Assessment, a scientifically validated tool, to identify transformational leadership attributes essential for fostering high-performance teams. 
    • One-on-one program onboarding with personalized EQ 360® Assessment debrief 
    • 5 Monthly 2-hour peer group sessions over 6 months, comprised of either peers from other organizations or cross functional leaders from within your company 
    • Leadership development tailored to the unique skills and attributes of each participant and the company’s needs  
    • Engaging curriculum that drives transformation 
    • Small cohorts for collaborative peer learning providing diverse insights 
    • Accountability for consistent growth  
    • App-driven program featuring a dashboard to track leadership behaviors real-time and course correct when needed
