Leadership at the Peak

Leading is different at the top. Take your organization — and yourself — to the next level.

Leading the enterprise is a powerful — and humbling — experience. C-level executives play an enormous role in the success of their organizations, and the demands of top leadership are far-reaching, complex, and essential to get right. Our world-class C-suite leadership training provides highly individualized leader development within the context of advancing the entire business and addresses the unique challenges of those leading at the peak.

“I love the intention of each activity and gentle but consistent push out of your comfort zone. You don’t even realize … until you reflect, hence the tears we saw on Friday morning. It was incredible and I watch other leaders light up when I tell them about Leadership at the Peak.”

“I went to the Center for Creative Leadership in Colorado… and it changed my life… What I found was I was putting all my time into work and doing very little for community and self, [so I] brought down the amount of hours I spent at work and put some into community and self and I felt better… and my business career accelerated.”

Grant Reid


“I knew we had to build a team of teams… If we worked at cross-purposes, it would be nearly impossible to accomplish our mission. We played upon each other’s talents in this way and really capitalized on strengths… The team-of-teams approach made us twice as powerful as we would have otherwise been.”

“It’s well worth the investment. Be prepared to be challenged, supported, and educated! Be selfish with your time during the program and immerse yourself in learning rather than trying to do your ‘day job’ too! I learned a great deal from the assessment feedback, the classroom, the exercises, and the time outside of the program with my peers.”

C-level leadership, or C-suite leadership, refers to individuals who are the senior executives of an organization. It often includes roles like the Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Chief Operating Officer (COO), as well as top-level executives leading other business functions such as Human Resources, Marketing, IT, and the like (with titles such as CHRO, CMO, CIO, CTO, etc.). The C-level leadership team plays a large role in defining and shaping an organization’s strategy and culture, which makes the challenges they face that much more complex, and their individual and collective leadership skills critically important to the success of the business.
