Since its inception over 40 years ago, the Center for Creative Leadership has been at the cutting-edge of leadership development. Coaching has been part of our research and education efforts ever since, starting with our pioneering use of 360-feedback for development.

We believe coaching is one of the most effective tools available to take leadership development to a deeper and more sustainable level – whether focused on the individual, groups, teams, or the entire organization.

“CCL worked closely with key stakeholders in our organization to explore and discover our needs and provided a solution that was designed and delivered within our specifications to a large population in a limited time-frame.”

—Marc van Marrewijk, Talent Attraction & Development Manager for Novo Nordisk in Europe
