There are many considerations when you’re trying to decide between in-person vs. online learning for leadership development at your organization. Whether you opt for a physical or virtual setting for your learners, you want to be sure to provide an impactful experience. At the Center for Creative Leadership, we offer both types of programs, and participant satisfaction with our live online leadership programs matches that of our face-to-face programs.

Our live online courses are delivered in an interactive virtual classroom format that involves participants engaging in real-time exercises and small group interactions with fellow participants and trained facilitators and coaches. Our moderated online leadership courses allow participants to learn at their own pace and are not delivered in a live format, but rather asynchronously. However, participants still get access to a CCL leadership expert and a network of fellow participants to further enhance the learning experience.

Our online leadership programs and management courses are delivered in a variety of formats. Some are offered live online, some are moderated online, and others are in a self-directed and self-paced format. Live online virtual programs are delivered in an interactive virtual classroom where participants learn and engage with one another in real time. Moderated online courses aren’t delivered in a live format, but rather asynchronously, giving participants access to a CCL leadership expert and network of fellow participants to interact with and learn from. Our self-directed online leadership courses and tools enable participants to learn completely at their own pace, no matter where they are located.

While there’s no one online course or program that’s better than the rest, each of our trainings is designed for specific leader levels and needs. For new or first-level leaders, we recommend the Frontline Leader Impact course. And for mid-level leaders, our flagship Leadership Development Program (LDP)®, the longest-running program of its kind in the world, is available both in-person and online. 

We also offer a range of online leadership trainings designed for leaders of all levels, including Better Conversations Every Day™ and Better Conversations & Coaching.
