The (Better) Leadership Project

As the world changes, leadership should change with it.

Today’s challenges are different. What made organizations successful before isn’t enough for tomorrow. And the skills leaders need now weren’t always valued (or even recognized) in the past.

It’s time to reexamine traditional understandings of “good” leadership and explore how to evolve towards better leadership.

At CCL, we believe that (better) leadership is a collective effort — and it starts with individuals. Better leaders build better teams, stronger organizations, and healthier communities. But we can’t do it alone. Join us, and together, we can create better cultures, more successful enterprises, and a brighter future.

With over 30 pages of insights gleaned from our research, this collection of resources includes actionable tips and team discussion questions to help you become a (better) leader with a focus on compassion, wellbeing, and belonging.

The Foundations of (Better) Leadership

As we evolve our understanding of “good” leadership, we find that (better) leaders focus on compassion, wellbeing, and belonging — for themselves and others. Authentically embracing diverse perspectives creates cultures where people can bring their full selves to work. And this leads to organizations that are more innovative, successful, and (better) prepared for the future.

Self-care and resilience are important, but they’re not enough. Support true employee wellbeing with these keys to wellbeing and leadership.
