Our real-world customized learning solutions advance your talent and are deeply connected to your business goals.
Our goal is to allow organizations and business units to have their own expertly crafted, real-world leadership development solution. The option to have a customized solution may have once seemed out of reach: Too expensive, cumbersome to develop, and risky to deliver well. Through a collaboration led by the Lake Forest Center for Leadership, an experience is created in which both program sponsors and participants say, "This program means more because it looks and sounds like who we are."
Our programs are designed around your specific business needs and address your development challenges. Led by our Business Leader Faculty®, our learning environments are inclusive and highly engaging where participants freely share perspectives and exchange ideas. We design each program to deliver the content and connections that will help transform participants thinking and behaviors to advance your business goals.
We create end-to-end development programs for the full life cycle of leadership — from new leaders to experts and executives — across the entire organization.
We help individuals early in their career who need a deeper understanding of the essentials for great leadership now and in the future.
Our programs build on communication and leadership skills vital to managerial success to better position them to make a positive impact.
We focus on ways to fast-track high achievers to master management and develop a strategic perspective, vision casting, and alignment.
We create a blended solution that reaches your leaders worldwide through face-to-face sessions or innovative technology - or both.
Our Business Leader FacultyTM leads workshops and conference center events for your team to get in-person, relational support on their leadership journey.
We develop digital, asynchronous learning environments for individual work with a cohort as well as team-based solutions facilitated by our faculty.
We use state-of-the-art technology to broadcast live classes anywhere in the world, bringing in-person relationships to the online platform.
How We Do It
We have a three step process when partnering with organizations to develop fully customized development programs.
We take the time to assess your business needs, objectives, and what really matters to your organization. We then evaluate these objectives at every stage.
Our team becomes an extension of your team to design impactful solutions that meet your business objectives.
We create trusting learning environments that engage participants in real-world, practical concepts based on our own business experiences.
