Mission Statement

Society is crying out for better leaders and a better understanding of leadership -- the Center for Creative Leadership exists to answer that call. Incorporated in 1970 as an educational institution, CCL today is one of the largest institutions focusing on leadership in the world. Our purpose is to generate, adapt, and disseminate knowledge about leadership and leadership development -- for individuals and the organizations in which they work. At CCL, we contribute to the development of more than 28,000 leaders each year. We help hundreds of organizations weather change and develop into stronger, more productive workplaces. The Center works with adult leaders from all sectors -- business, government, military, education, healthcare and not-for-profit. We blend the rigors and intellectual curiosity of academia with a thorough understanding of organizations and workplaces -- all within a safe and confidential learning environment for mid-to senior-level leaders. We seek support from individuals, organizations, and foundations to advance our work, broaden our scope and to be a global resource for leaders about leadership.

Program 1

The Center for Creative Leadership exists to generate, adapt, and disseminate knowledge about leadership and leadership development. Our work is comprised of four major areas. 1. The Center's Leadership School -- CCL offers a dynamic curriculum of open-enrollment courses at our four campuses and more than 20 affiliate locations worldwide. More than 28,000 individual students participate in our programs each year. Leaders from more than two-thirds of the Fortune 100 companies took part in CCL or CCL-licensed courses last year. Because we are committed to serving leaders from across all sectors of society, we do offer scholarships to leaders from the nonprofit and educational sector and in 1998-1999 provided more than $540,000 in tuition reductions to allow these individuals access to Center leadership development programs. 2. Applied Practice -- In addition to our open-enrollment curriculum, the Center has developed an applied practice where we offer customized training, development, and educational solutions for approximately 200 client organizations each year. In the 1970s, CCL pioneered the use of 360-degree assessment. Today, the Center offers a wide array of assessment tools and business simulations that identify behaviors and provide increased self-awareness for development. 3. Ongoing Research and Published Work CCL engages in the study of individual and organizational development, not only to contribute to the field of inquiry but to help people in their quest to become better leaders. Some of the Center's more well-know works include: Positive Turbulence, by Stanley Gryskiewicz; Breaking the Glass Ceiling by Ann Morrison, Randy White and Ellen Van Velsor; Eighty-eight Assignments for Development in Place by Michael M. Lombardo; Breaking Free, by David M. Noer; Beyond Ambition, by Robert E. Kaplan and If I'm In Charge Here, Why is Everybody Laughing, by David consortia, alumni conferences, councils and memberships. As a 501(c)(3), the Center also accepts investments in our work in the form of restricted and unrestricted donations to sustain and expand our institutional presence.
