The Center for Creative Leadership (CCL®) offers what no one else can: an exclusive focus on leadership education and research and unparalleled expertise in solving the leadership challenges of individuals and organizations everywhere. We equip clients around the world with the skills and insight to achieve more than they thought possible through creative leadership.
What is creative leadership? It’s the capacity to think and act beyond the boundaries that limit our effectiveness. Every leader and organization faces obstacles that are difficult to surmount – from corporate executives confronting the complex global marketplace to educators trying to lift student achievement to nonprofit groups and government agencies addressing critical social issues with tight budgets.
CCL believes that solutions to these challenges exist — and for over 40 years we have helped clients unlock them through creative leadership. We believe leaders are made, not born, and that they can adapt and change. We believe that strong interpersonal skills, grounded in personal reflection and self-awareness, are the key to effective leadership.
