Company Overview

Sustained impact for you, your business, and the world.

No matter how much or how quickly the world changes — how automated or disrupted work and life become — one fact remains: outstanding leaders create a positive path forward for us all.

At the Center for Creative Leadership, we’re proud to be recognized worldwide as a top-ranked, premier leadership development organization.

Our Mission

Together, we lift the leaders who lift the world.
Since our founding in 1970, it’s been our mission at CCL to advance the understanding, practice, and development of leadership for the benefit of society worldwide. We strive to make the world a better place through more effective leadership.

Our human-centered experiences ignite transformational and sustainable change for individuals, organizations, and the communities they serve.

Guided By Purpose, Fueled By Passion
We believe in the powerful potential impact of leadership on society. Effective leaders can transform individuals, organizations, communities, and our world.

That’s why we partner with others around the globe to build leadership capacity and support sustainable social change.

Together, we can be even stronger in our quest to improve the world. We readily embrace the opportunity to work with any individual or organization that sees leadership development as a means to deepen their impact.

Transforming the World, One Leader at a Time
The benefits of effective leadership development are not limited to a single event or conference. Long after the program ends, growth continues to resonate and impact ripples outward, affecting not only the individuals in the program, but also each of the lives that they touch and change as a result.

That’s why we train thousands of social sector leaders each year. And as a mission-driven, nonprofit organization, we believe our work should be affordable and accessible to all — from young people to senior adults — so we have a robust scholarship program.

Equity, Diversity & Inclusion

Moving From Ideas Into Action
Shift mindsets, behaviors, and practices so everyone in your organization attains their full potential.
Multiple studies have proven that diverse teams drive better business performance and?organizations with greater diversity become more resilient and innovative. And inclusion is required for diverse groups to thrive.?

Yet there’s little point in considering how to recruit a more diverse workforce, nor how to ensure talented individuals from different backgrounds are fully included, if your organization has not yet considered what different people need to be successful.

To do that, you need to understand equity.

To see real, sustainable change, and to leverage the full potential of all their talent, organizations must go beyond diversity and inclusion to focus on equity, diversity, and inclusion in the workplace.

Leading with equity is about recognizing that different people have different needs and being committed to giving people what they need to succeed. When that happens, everyone wins.
