Leadership as a Practice

Center for Transformative Leadership

What we do

CTL’s mission is to support leadership development as a practice. We innovate with cutting edge resources for developing your leadership practice, drawing on a variety of tools ready to be customized to meet your challenges.

Who we are

We are intensely curious about how leadership provides a context for growth. We see ourselves as a laboratory for thought leaders and practitioners to expand necessary knowledge and skills. We are part of a global community of praxis focused on leadership development.

Who you are

You are also curious, drawn to experimentation and constant learning. You might be an individual leader wanting coaching, a learning and development officer needing help with a program, or a consultancy wanting to collaborate. We love to engage all of you.
