The Fundamental 4 Core Leadership Skills

No matter the intelligence, experience, or drive, the same 4 core skills are important for every leader at every level. We call them the Fundamental 4: self-awareness, learning agility, influence, and communication.

The Fundamental 4 have endured the test of time and are the basis for the Lead 4 Success™ program, where participants immerse themselves in development, adapt these skills to their own leadership contexts, participate with peers in learning, and share ideas to apply to their leadership lessons to their real world.

Convince Your Boss

We needed a strong program to create the type of leadership culture that not only would demonstrate to employees that Arch was serious about employee development, but also one that could take our leaders to a new level.

For our core leader training program, we combined key organizational knowledge and skill needed, with the powerhouse of the CCL name and years of extensive research in the leadership field, to offer a distinguished, holistic program to our leaders — one we believe is definitely ‘Best in Class.’
