An executive program brought to you by:


We see leaders as life-long learners. We understand that leadership is a personal resource that needs to be nurtured and developed in order to bring it to the surface. Leadership scholars agree that leadership can be learned and that leadership competencies are best developed over time through a recursive and reflective process. Corporations across North America invest several billion dollars annually in leadership education and development. Leadership by Design is an investment in your personal leadership journey.


Explore the modules below and begin your journey to becoming the leader you want to be, today!


We received several registrations but not sufficient numbers to run the program in November. We have had strong corporate and institutional interest and are pursuing the opportunity to custom tailor the Foundations of Leadership program to meet their learning needs. We anticipate the program moving forward in collaboration with these potential corporate partners.
