Perched above the Pacific Ocean and nestled along the 10th hole of the historic Torrey Pines Golf Course, the brand new San Diego campus boasts panoramic views, awe-inspiring sunsets and cool ocean breezes. The campus staff has over twenty-five years of experience in delivering CCL’s world-class Open-Enrollment programs and is a trusted Leadership custom solutions partner for organizations throughout the West Coast, Pacific Rim, Latin America and beyond.

Although the training days are full, the San Diego campus is just minutes away from the beaches of La Jolla, Torrey Pines golf course and nature reserve, and the world-famous San Diego Zoo. This provides the perfect opportunity for reflection and recreation before or after a program.

Pre-Course Materials

Pre-Course Materials

What are pre-course materials
Pre-course materials are assessment tools that are a central part of the program experience. These may include items like a 360-degree assessment tool or an organizational survey. By completing these materials, you provide us with information on your leadership style and work environment, allowing us to tailor your personal development plans based on your specific needs.

Receiving your pre-course materials
Your pre-course assessment materials are sent electronically approximately eight weeks prior to your program date.

Time to complete
Depending upon your program, pre-course assessment materials will require anywhere from 2 to 8 hours to complete. Please begin early, so that you are not forced to rush through the material. An early start will also allow ample time for the raters you select to complete their materials. Specific instructions about distributing and completing these forms are included on myCCL and our online assessment system.

Pre-course materials deadline
In order to attend the program, it is very important to distribute, complete, and return these materials to CCL four weeks prior to the start of the program. Your assessment feedback is an integral part of the program experience. Missing the deadline will jeopardize your attendance in this program. If you anticipate that you will not have your pre-course materials completed before the due date and would like to avoid cancellation and transfer fees, please call Client Services at +1 800 780 1031.

Schedule / Program Hours

When you arrive at the hotel, you will receive a welcome letter that will include detailed program information. A hotel representative will greet you at the hotel the morning the program starts.

Course schedules vary, but generally, the shuttle will pick you up from your hotel at 7:30 a.m. and you will arrive at CCL at 8:00 a.m. daily. Most courses end each day between 5:00 and 6:00 p.m., with the exception of the final day of five-day courses, which ends at noon. Participants are given an hour for lunch and several breaks throughout the day for snacks, checking voice mail, and bathroom breaks. It is imperative that you attend all scheduled program activities.


We intentionally do not offer an area for participants to check their e-mail or hook up their computers to the Internet. Our goal is to remove you from your normal work environment while at CCL. We prefer that you check your e-mail from your hotel room (all hotels used by CCL offer in-room high speed data ports).


We request that participants turn off all cell phones and pagers, or turn them to vibrate if emergency calls must be accepted. There are plenty of telephones located outside of the classrooms and a generous number of breaks are given throughout the day to check voice mail and make calls.

Transportation during the program

During the program, shuttle service is provided by CCL to and from the hotel as well as out to dinner as determined by the group. There is no need

Recreational Activities

Due to time constraints of the program, there is limited time allotted for sightseeing or recreational activities during the week of the program. We encourage you to arrive in Greensboro a few days early, or stay a few days after the close of the program if you wish to partake in local recreational activities.


CCL is a non-smoking facility indoors. Smoking is permitted in designated areas outside of the building.


Invoices are processed at the time of registration and payment is due upon receipt.

Meals and Snacks

Most meals are included in your tuition; please refer to your registration packet for specific meal information. The CCL dining room has a wonderful variety of foods, including a salad bar, sandwich bar, two different meat choices, several hot and cold side item choices, fruits, a variety of beverages, and desserts. Breakfast snacks and afternoon snacks are provided daily. If you have special dietary requirements, please contact Client Services at +1 800 780 1031 before the program begins and we will do our best to accommodate your needs. Vegetarian and low fat options are available.


Urgent messages received by Client Services at +1 800 780 1031 will be delivered to you in your classroom immediately. Please route all other messages to your hotel voice mail.




You  can fly into the San Diego International Airport (SAN). From the Airport, you may call your hotel (this assumes you are staying at one of the hotels CCL recommends)  from the baggage claim area for free shuttle service to the hotel. If your flight arrives within one hour of the program start time, please take a taxi directly to CCL. We recommend arriving the night before your program begins and booking a return flight no earlier than 2 hours after the close of your course.

Alternative Airport

The La Jolla area of the city of San Diego is only about  20 minutes north of the SAN airport. However, you may wish to research alternative airports and carriers, and have the following options are available:

John Wayne Airport  (SNA) in Santa Ana is  105.71 kilometers
65.69 miles or 105.71 kilometers.



Participants stay at different hotels in the San Diego area depending on their course date. The cost of lodging is not included in your program tuition and you are responsible for making your own hotel reservations. We strongly encourage you to stay at the preferred hotel listed under the Accommodations tab on myCCL, which becomes available to you upon registration for your program. CCL participants will receive a group rate at this preferred hotel, which includes transportation to and from CCL. Staying at a different hotel will not afford you these amenities or the opportunity to interact with the other participants in your program. Please note that the deadline for reservations at the preferred hotel is set a month prior to your program and the group allocation is limited. After that deadline, you may lose the preferred hotel price and a reservation at the hotel.

Check in / Check out times
Check in time at all hotels is 3:00 p.m. Reservations are guaranteed for a late arrival. Check out time at all hotels is 12:00 noon. On the last day of your program, however, it is best to check out of your hotel prior to coming to the CCL campus.

Data ports
All hotels used by CCL offer in-room data ports.
