Start charting your own course by enrolling in CCL’s Leadership Fundamentals program. Gain clarity, direction and an understanding of your own leadership potential to go further, faster.

Leadership isn’t defined by the job title. It’s about developing the perspective, skills and personal style to get results that matter. Individual contributors get the work done as they lead project teams, serve as key role models in the organization and are influential team members. Being an effective leader is crucial to one’s personal success and the success of the organization. The Leadership Fundamentals program was developed to introduce the essentials of effective leadership for greater success, faster.

What Will the Program Experience Include?

The program has a 3-phased approach:


  • Before the program week, participants complete a background form and a brief self-assessment of learning type.
  • We also recommend a “boss conversation” – a chance for participants to discuss their learning and career goals.


For 2 days, participants join 2 highly-qualified instructors in a dynamic, group-driven learning atmosphere to experience:

  • Highly relevant, research-based content to expand perspective, build the foundation for learning core leadership skills, & identify a personal leadership brand.
  • Experiential exercises to bring concepts alive & deepen learning.
  • Sharing of feedback, insight, suggestions & support in peer groups.
  • Extensive networking opportunities to meet peers and make connections that last.
  • A process for developing a personal action plan for applying new knowledge & tools.


Post-program participants apply & sustain their learning via ongoing support:

  • An online portal with resources & support tailored to individual development needs.
  • Access to eLearning (courses, books, checklists, etc.) designed to reinforce lessons learned.
  • Optional, fee-based learning & support ( extended coaching engagements, additional eLearning packages) & custom initiatives to connect individual development to organizational needs.
