Leading for Organizational Impact

Senior leaders must make high-stakes decisions and build for tomorrow while addressing the needs of today.

When leaders’ actions impact enterprise-wide outcomes, things change. Senior leaders of functions, business units, divisions, and regions need big-picture thinking as they navigate competing priorities and make decisions in alignment with other senior executives. Their leadership success is essential to the success of the entire organization. This high-impact senior leadership training program equips them to succeed when the stakes are higher than ever before.

“A great opportunity to slow down, take a step back, and be thoughtful about your performance as a leader. It enabled me to reflect on the ways in which I drive positive outcomes on my team and the ways in which my behavior hinders the overall success of the team — and figure out the corrective behaviors needed to drive more positive outcomes.”

A High-Impact Senior Leadership Training Program That Address's Today’s Challenges

When navigating complex global trends, unpredictable economic forces, and rapidly changing business cycles, senior leaders need more than just a list of competencies to succeed. They need proven, holistic senior leadership development that’s built around the real challenges they face at this level:

  • Balancing people and task demands to create needed strategies and structures, build a future talent pipeline, and transition into new responsibilities — all at the same time
  • Working to lead up and across the enterprise to create new growth opportunities, improve cross-functional processes, and leverage limited resources
  • Enhancing personal growth to build credibility as a senior leader and become more aware of how behaviors impact others

What Participants Learn in Our Senior Leader Training, Leading for Organizational Impact

As a result of attending our prestigious and evidence-based senior leadership training program, participants will be able to:

Why Our Organizational Impact Program for Executives?

More than just a 5-day training program for senior leaders, Leading for Organizational Impact is a developmental journey that offers insights, tools, and support.

The heart of this journey is The Looking Glass® Experience: a research-driven business simulation that serves as a live case study of relational leadership. The Looking Glass, Inc.® simulation provides hands-on learning, critical skills practice, and a clear view of how individual leaders work across boundaries, adopt a strategic perspective, and impact organizational outcomes.

While other simulations prime leaders for the business cases of the past, ours prepares them to face the business challenges of the future — with the executive mindsets, skillsets, and tools they will need to successfully navigate the road ahead.

In addition to The Looking Glass® Experience, this proven senior leader training also provides:

  • Customized 360-degree assessment and individualized executive coaching for highly personalized feedback and support
  • Research-based content focusing on the issues that matter most at this leader level
  • A 3-month post-program assessment to ensure development continues
  • Ongoing support through our exclusive alumni community

Carrie Paul

VP, Talent Acquisition and Workforce Planning

“The ecosystem of co-participants who were senior executives from varied industries and geographies, coupled with a highly experienced faculty, a safe zone set up to forego inhibitions and open myself to give and receive feedback, all made a huge personal impact on me, in my leadership learning journey with CCL.”

Sanjay Chintalapalli

Sr. Director of Technology
Gilbarco Veeder Root

“I came into this program expecting it to be more academic in nature, but instead it was more reflective. I was taught important leadership skills, given an opportunity to practice them, received feedback on how I did, and then was given time to practice it again … [with] time to reflect on what I had learned. This approach has helped me retain the information and see tangible ways to take it back to my organization. I also saw immediate growth!

Lindsay Gattis

Regional Marketing Director
Redgate Software

“There are always ways to improve yourself as a leader, but many times we don’t have direction of where to go to have a greater impact on our employees and the overall organization. CCL and the LOI program help you define your own route through data collection, promotion of self-reflection, and countless other ways. They help you lay out a way to to make incremental steps toward your specific goal.”

Pete Muller

Director of Communications

Senior and executive leaders who have a lot of experience but are looking to enhance their leadership skills will greatly benefit from our research-backed Leading for Organizational Impact program.
