Develop a pipeline of successful leaders at all levels.

The quality of your leadership drives the performance of the organization. CCL accelerates your strategy and business results by unlocking the leadership potential in your organization. CCL drives results by partnering with organizations to align leadership strategy with business goals, optimizing the organizational environment for leadership and harnessing the energy of a well-developed workforce.

Our Leader Development Roadmap helps you match the right learning at the right time for each leader, whether it’s Leading Self, Leading Others, Leading Managers, Leading The Function, or Leading The Organization. Our roadmap meets you where you are and takes you where you and your organization want to go. By focusing on the skills critical for success at each level, your organization can see faster results.


 

CCL’s approach to individual leader development is based on our Leader Development Roadmap.

The Leader Development Roadmap connects the challenges leaders face every day with the essential skills they need to be successful at each of five leader levels:

Leading Self

Individual contributors, professional staff and emerging leaders

Leading Others

Leaders of individual contributors

Leading Managers

Experienced leaders who lead other managers or senior professional staff

Leading the Function

Senior leaders of organizational functions or divisions

Leading the Organization

Top executives leading the enterprise

Based on research and experience with over a million leaders, CCL has identified four competencies that are critical at every level of leadership development.

We focus on these “Fundamental Four” competencies across all of our individual development offerings in addition to specific key challenges and competencies which you can explore below.
