Leading for Organizational Impact

Leading within a large organization requires big-picture thinking, plus the ability to navigate relationships and competing priorities.

When leaders of departments and divisions see challenges and opportunities through the eyes of others, it impacts their individual expertise. A narrow focus is useful in tactical responsibilities, but leaders of functions must see nuances and the whole picture of a mission in order to have organizational impact and be strategically effective. 

“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.”

“The ecosystem of co-participants who were senior executives from varied industries and geographies, coupled with a highly experienced faculty, a safe zone setup 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. All while receiving 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 (AMER)

“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.”

Director of Communications
