Who should attend

LSI targets high-potential executives motivated to become even better leaders. You’ll learn how to develop your strategic leadership style, implement and communicate strategy across your organization, and maximize your leadership effectiveness.

About the course

Inspire others. Transform organizations. Deliver results. The Tuck Leadership and Strategic Impact Program (LSI) at Dartmouth integrates the strategic leadership and communication skills you need to lead with impact and drive breakout performance for your organization.

Leadership and Strategic Impact amplifies your strategy, communication, and leadership skills to help you drive breakout performance for your organization. Via robust, experiential learning frameworks, you’ll refine your unique strategic leadership style and develop your ability to communicate and implement strategy across the enterprise.

Peer learning happens naturally at LSI. Participants drawn from global organizations contribute fresh perspectives and insights to the challenges of business, and their interactions become a powerful component of the LSI experience, forming bonds that build a valuable, lifelong network. Post-program coaching keeps participants on track and focused on action plans.

LSI Program Elements


All participants in Leadership and Strategic Impact complete a 360-degree leadership assessment prior to the program. This exercise reveals strengths and weaknesses and suggests areas of special focus during the immersive training course. Participants engage in exercises facilitated by Action Learning Associates, who are experts at linking leadership development to business strategy through experiential learning methods. Through faculty and peer coaching, you will create a personal action plan that will maximize your strategic leadership potential. LSI’s core curriculum focuses on the most important questions for contemporary leadership:

  • How can I lead change across the enterprise?
  • How can I develop corporate culture and a collaborate mindset?
  • How can I create a reliable feed-forward processes for growth?
  • How can I identify and develop talent—including my own?


You can’t change what you can’t describe. Successful leaders develop strategies to communicate powerfully with internal and external constituencies. Leadership and Strategic Impact dives deep into successful strategic communications, offering approaches to help you develop your professional identity, polish a corporate brand, and manage reputation in times of crisis or growth.

Strategic Mindset

Leadership and Strategic Impact teaches you to think more strategically about your business. By examining past success (and failure) and identifying dependencies within the enterprise, you’ll develop a strategic decision making framework that helps you innovate, execute, and create value.

Participants work with Tuck’s senior faculty to:

  • Sharpen their approach to strategic leadership and decision-making
  • Drive results through strategic communication
  • Manage team dynamics and improve performance
  • Reflect on their strategic leadership capabilities
  • Develop an action plan and sustain their momentum after the program
  • Commit to accelerating personal and organizational growth

Who Benefits

LSI most benefits motivated, forward-looking executives committed to exploring their own leadership strengths and weaknesses and building an action plan that will help them accelerate their professional advancement. These professionals benefit by learning how to sharpen their approach to strategic decision making and discovering new strategies to manage team dynamics, improve performance, and drive organizational growth.

Executives with 12 or more years of experience at the enterprise level may wish to apply to Tuck’s offering targeting the most senior professionals, the Advanced Management Program.

LSI for Teams

Many organizations choose to send multiple participants to LSI. The experience allows teams to create a common language and shared framework that connects leadership concepts to action. LSI allows team members to re-frame real-world problems, then accelerate the transfer of their learning back to their organizations, putting new ideas to immediate use. Special team pricing is available.
