Program Overview


The Classic Leadership Institute
is more than a traditional workshop

it is a long-term developmental experience that seeks to positively change and improve
leadership behavior through a process of self-awareness and self-discovery.

The Program


The CLI program includes off-site and in-house learning opportunities. Participants can explain their perceptions and attitudes about leadership and develop more self-awareness about their strengths and what is holding them back. The program utilizes small learning groups guided by professional trainers who assist participants in gaining more effective skills in communication and feedback. Through the CLI program, participants are better able to comprehend and analyze their own leadership style and see how it affects other’s behavior.

The methodologies taught at CLI have emerged from research on effective organizations and leadership development, as well as the experience of working with hundreds of management and supervisory groups.

What you can expect from this program:

  • Increased ability to influence by building strong relationships
  • Increased skills in seeing and sensing needs for change
  • Greater creativity in seeing solutions and pathways to finding solutions
  • Improved clarity and congruency in presentation of proposals for change
  • More confidence and risk taking to initiate and follow through
  • Greater ability to help others reach consensus decisions and synergistic solutions
