Training Content

Leading Strategically gives senior leaders the tools to develop and sharpen their strategic leadership skills. In order to receive the most from this program, leaders should:


A comprehensive assessment of strategic leadership skills is a powerful component of the program.

Pre-program assessments:

  • Give a detailed picture of leadership strengths, behaviors and preferences.
  • Identify and clarify development needs.
  • Establish a foundation for significant personal and professional growth.

An equally important element is the focus on individuals' specific situation throughout the program experience. Prior to the program, participants identify a Strategic Leadership Challenge and have a 60-minute phone call with an executive coach to discuss and clarify.

The week includes:

  • A business simulation to experience the creation, implementation and execution of strategy.
  • Experiential activities and practice sessions and deeper learning.
  • A personal session with a certified CCL coach to clarify thinking and plan next steps.
  • Peer learning groups to provide feedback, insight, suggestions and support.


After the classroom experience, CCL helps participants apply and sustain their development experience by providing:

  • Two 60-minute phone coaching sessions with a certified CCL coach.
  • Access to myCCL designed to reinforce lessons from the program, including White Papers, e-newsletters, forums, webinars, podcasts, articles and quick-reference checklists and tools.
  • Optional, fee-based learning and support, such as extended coaching engagements, additional eLearning packages and custom initiatives to connect individual development to organizational needs.
