About CCL in the Middle East & Africa

Businesses in the Middle East and Africa are rapidly growing and transitioning into global enterprises, making it imperative to understand leadership from different perspectives. Fast-growing and uncertain global economic conditions, along with persistent ambiguity, have made strengthening the leadership pipeline a critical success factor.

We draw from a world of experience across cultures, industries, and disciplines, helping you through real-world challenges and measuring the impact of our work. Ranked among the world’s top providers of executive education, you can be confident that we will deliver the results that matter most to you.

Our leadership development experts focus on corporate work and leadership training for both business and government leaders. Our leadership courses are tailored to recognize the unique business environment of organizations operating in the Middle East and Africa.

Johannesburg, South Africa

After delivering leadership solutions remotely in Africa for the past decade, we opened our second office in Africa in 2012 to bring world-class leadership development solutions to this fast-growing continent. The office is located in Johannesburg, South Africa, and works with some of the largest and most successful private and public organizations in Africa.

“I learned a great deal about the way I think about myself and the reasons for my thinking. Receiving feedback from my peers and superiors was one of the most powerful elements of the program. I was able to understand how other people see me in the work environment and better understand the impact of my leadership style on other people. Knowing more about myself-compared with the way other people see me is making me a well-rounded person and better equipped to lead.”
