CCL's 'both/and' strategy for Africa aims to reach out to both high-level (corporate and government) leaders and grassroots community leaders across the continent. The goal of the strategy is two-way: to spread best-practices in leadership, and to learn from Africa's leadership best practices.
The strategy includes the following actions:
Our dedicated team in the Addis Ababa (Ethiopia) office works to make high-quality leadership development affordable, accessible and scalable to underserved populations worldwide. We started the Leadership Beyond Boundaries (LBB)™ initiative in 2006 and have already delivered tailored leadership development programs to more than 100 social sector organizations and to over 50,000 individuals from 20 developing countries.
CCL's leadership solutions experts in the Johannesburg (South Africa) office focus on our corporate work, particularly in sub-Saharan Africa. This includes training for business and government leaders. Our courses are tailored to recognize the unique African business environment with its increased focus on community. We are proud to work with leading African corporations in retail, telecommunications, mining and other sectors on shaping their leadership strategies since 2009.
