Virtual Resources

At the Center for Leadership we are dedicated to exploring leadership thought and practice through continuous research, providing opportunities for leaders to develop keen self-insight, and teaching leadership competencies that will equip them to meaningfully transform their organizations and their societies. Through our research, executive development programs, and community engagement opportunities, we are building better leaders for a better world. This means we strive to engage the widest audience possible and provide access to leadership development opportunities, both in-person and virtually. On this virtual resources guide you will find opportunities to enhance your leadership (virtually) through insights, opportunities, and tools relevant for this ever-changing world.

Experience our Instructor-led Live Online Programs 

The Center’s virtual programs are offered through a live online format, with the same rigor and impact as our in-person programs. Live online programs take place in real-time with live instructions and continue to include all the hallmarks of the Center’s development programs – interactivity, research-backed insights, a focus on self-discovery, small and large group discussions, in-class practice, and opportunities to interact with our world-class instructors – all with the goal of helping you become more effective and grow in your leadership. Like our in-person programs, live online programs are intensive 2-5 day programs scheduled during regular work hours (ET), and live attendance is required for participants.
