The Need for Leadership Strategy Training

Organizations today are operating in rapidly changing, unpredictable markets. Those that succeed will be led by leaders who have the skills to think, act, and influence strategically.

In today’s world, just having a strategy is not enough. Understanding how to successfully execute the strategy is key for ensuring results that matter.

  • Come away with a whole-systems mindset to consistently address organizational dilemmas as a strategic leader;
  • Be able to think, act, and influence strategically in the face of disruption and complexity;
  • Identify levers in the culture that can help enable the execution of the business strategy;
  • Understand how leadership strategy enables strategy formation and execution; and
  • Create direction, alignment, and commitment in critical relationships to bridge functions, groups, and geographies around priorities.

What Our Alumni Are Saying

Alumni of our online strategic leadership program consistently tell us the same thing: their experience with us made a significant impact on their leadership and professional growth, and they’re grateful for the life-changing opportunity.

But don’t just take our word for it – take theirs.

“For me, the biggest ‘a-ha’ was realizing that even though we, as a senior leadership team, are very good at communicating our corporate message throughout the organization, we can use some simple strategies to make sure that everyone not only knows our strategies but lives them. By having the entire team fully embrace their part of the puzzle, we will have more motivated team members.”

Pamela McNamara
VP of Sales, US
Kao Group

“Coming into the class, I was very narrow in my thinking around my strategic challenge, but by the end of the week it became much broader in scope. Although there were many takeaways, I will be focusing on developing and using strategic influence in helping others to become more strategic throughout our organization.”

“Going into an online only course, I was a bit concerned. But the amount of engagement that was offered in this course – along with the hands on virtual labs – was incredible. This was the first CCL course I’ve taken – so a lot of new concepts were introduced (polarities, boundary spanning) but the way in which they were introduced with the breakout sessions for further dialog really allowed them to hit home with me. I would highly recommend this course for any leader making the transition from an operational mindset to strategic mindset.”

“The program helped me better understand myself as a leader and how to utilize practical tools such as leveraging polarities and spanning organizational boundaries to drive true change.”
