XL Future Leaders Program

The thinking tools and insights that I have learned in the XL Future Leaders Program have been incredibly valuable to me. The program empowers students to learn by doing, and as a result I truly improved my leadership skills.


Indonesian leaders upholding their cultural values and exemplifying global standards of excellence.


To empower Indonesian future leaders with confidence, insight and awareness in the context of learning our three core competencies: effective communication, entrepreneurship & innovation, and managing change.

Project History

The XL Future Leaders program began as the vision of our Former CEO, Pak Hasnul Suhaimi, who wanted to create a world-class leadership development program to empower future Indonesian leaders in accordance with the nationally recognized goal for Indonesia to be one of the top 5 world economies by the year 2030. This vision would involve the creation of an intensive 2-year leadership development program to prepare university students for the rigors of leadership in the global context, as well as an e-curriculum that would be free for anyone wishing to improve their leadership capacity.

As a result, the highly reputable New Zealand based consultancy, Cognition Education, was brought in to conduct a survey of the educational needs that would best prepare young Indonesian leaders for the challenges ahead. The survey revealed three core competencies that form a basis for competitiveness in the global economy: effective communication, entrepreneurship and innovation, and managing change. Additionally, the survey revealed the need for improved critical thinking skills, which is the underlying theme behind the curriculum that Cognition eventually designed specifically for the XL Future Leaders program.
