Admired Leadership Institute in Napa

February 4 – 7, 2024

The Admired Leadership Institute combines three days of leadership learning with activities that embrace multiple wine experiences found in Napa. This carefully balanced design provides participants with a truly memorable Admired Leadership® experience. It is designed to create a rich dialogue among peer-like leaders. 

Who Should Attend

The ideal Admired Leadership Institute® participant is a leader with current significant responsibility and “high potential” for increasing levels of management or leadership complexity. To take full advantage of the setting, the program will incorporate learning about how wine is made and enjoyed by some of the region’s top vintners. While not a prerequisite, those with an interest in wine will find the time spent in Napa even more valuable. 


RANDALL K. STUTMAN, PH.D. is the founder of the Admired Leadership Institute, and is widely recognized as an authority in leadership strategy and style. Dr. Stutman works as an executive coach for Bank of America Merrill Lynch, Capital One, Deutsche Bank, Goldman Sachs, State Farm, Sun Life Financial, and Morgan Stanley, among others. The author of three books on leadership, he is a former Professor at Temple University and the University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana.


Nestled in the town of Yountville, Napa Valley Lodge is a luxury boutique hotel in the heart of wine country. Family-owned and operated since its founding, the Napa Valley Lodge welcomes guests with authentic hospitality. You will be steps away from some of the country’s most remarkable restaurants and award-winning tasting rooms.

Participants are responsible for their own travel to Napa Valley Lodge. There are several convenient options – less than 90 minutes from San Francisco International Airport (SFO), Oakland Airport (OAK), or Sacramento Airport (SMF).
