Werner Erhard Video Experience III

American Canyon, California, USA

August 21, 2013



This essay, Werner Erhard Video Experience III, is the seventh in the octology The Werner Erhard Experience: It is also the sequel to Werner Erhard Video Experience II.

I am indebted to Michael Jensen and to Steve Zaffron and to Kari Granger and to Jeri Echeverria and to Prentiss Uchida and to Udo Erasmus and to Suzanne Laurie and to Anne Peterson and to Dennis "Chip" Wilson and to Anuj Singhal and to David Ferguson and to Mark Zupan and to Martin Lacoff and to Joel Seligman and to Richard Sands and to the University of Rochester's Simon School of Business who inspired this conversation, and to Michael Shaun Conaway and to Anne Peterson and to Josh Cohen and to Cheryl Ulrich who contributed material.




This essay, Werner Erhard Video Experience III, links a catalog of thirteen videos featuring Werner Erhard speaking The Leadership Course: Being a Leader and the Effective Exercise of Leadership: An Ontological / Phenomenological Model.

These videos provide a rare public glimpse into the conversation which drives this extraordinary course. They're minimalistically made, beautifully crafted gems which provide a taste of Werner's leading edge work with leadership with Michael Jensen, Steve Zaffron, Kari Granger and Jeri Echeverria.

Each video is completely holographic  in bringing forth the promised experience of the course. Although it's not a word used by Werner nor by anyone appearing in and contributing to the conversation in these videos, to me they're exquisitely and breathtakingly Zen.

The experience being shared by Werner and others in these thirteen videos is the promised experience realized of the course. To be sure, listen to what's being said here. Listen very carefully and attentively. You'll get enormous value from it. But don't stop there. Be  with the speakers' experience. Be with the experience from whence they're coming. For this  is the experience the course promises to deliver. It moved me to tears.

For more information and to register, visit The Leadership course: Being a Leader and the Effective Exercise of Leadership: An Ontological / Phenomenological Model website at

The total running time for all thirteen videos is two hours four minutes and thirty four seconds if you include the complete Sands Leadership Lecture: Creating Leaders: A New Model - 11 Years On, or two hours five minutes and fifty two seconds if you include the Sands Leadership Lecture: Creating Leaders: A New Model - 11 Years On, in seven parts.

There's a powerful, rich opportunity here to really experience  Werner Erhard.
