A quarterly box to fuel your 
professional learning and growth 
So you can lead and manage with more influence and impact









What is themadebox?


 Curated by certified leadership and executive coaches, themadebox
is a quarterly subscription box 
designed to share small doses of leadership development with leaders 
who want to keep their professional 
learning and growth a priority.


Every quarter, themadebox offers a unique leadership development experience. The signature element of themadebox is that curation centers around the Courageous Personal Leadership model, which consists of Four Principles: Manage your internal environment, Ask for what you need, Decide to take risks, and Embody your personal mission, vision, and values. Each quarter, themadebox theme is anchored in one of The Four Principles.


The M.A.D.E. To Lead team created the Courageous Personal Leadership model to focus on critical behaviors that individuals at all levels can demonstrate to lead with more influence and impact. Rooted in research and real-world experiences, the model is practical, applicable, and easy to integrate across  industries, positions, and levels. It works in the everyday leadership moments we experience, and is as effective in the bigger leadership challenges we wrestle with over time.

Previous Box: In July 2020, we launched themadebox with Principle One: Manage Your Internal Environment.  This principle is about being anchored in self-awareness; uncovering your strengths, patterns, and your impact on others; managing self-sabotaging thoughts, insecurities, doubts, and fears; seeing yourself clearly, and understanding how you are seen and experienced by others.  In addition to the theme based gifts, coaching, online content, and workshop, the July box  included two books to focus attention toward managing your internal environment: The Inner Game of Tennis: The Classic Guide to the Mental Side of Peak Performance by Timothy Gallwey and Unlocking Leadership Mindtraps: How To Thrive In Complexity by Jennifer Garvey Berger.

Why themadebox?

I believe the leadership development firm of the future will have to exist in multiple contexts and communicate information in many forms. Firms will have to meet people where they are, and professional and leadership development will look very different moving forward. We know that people want to learn and grow in their careers and in life, and they do not want to wait to attend a conference to do so.  We believe themadebox is high in utility, and is another way to meet the growing demand for new learning experiences.
