About Our Leadership Certificate Programs


Our leadership approach develops an individual's awareness of his or her strengths and core values that inspire confidence, build high-performing teams, and enhance employee engagement. Aspiring and experienced leaders learn how to transform workplace environments for greater organizational impact.

Organizations that flourish in today's increasingly complex and global world rely on leaders with resilience, skills, and commitment to tackle the challenges of today and tomorrow. Our Leading to Well-Being Professional Education programs offer organizations a distinctive approach to leadership training that gets powerful results.

Students leave our programs with:

  • Greater resilience in the face of complexity
  • Practical skills
  • Firm grounding in the research
  • A clear sense of self-awareness
  • Ready to contribute at a new level of knowledge and perspective
  • A deeper sense of purpose and vision

Our distinctive approach:

  • Short, intensive courses that focus on an individual's distinctive strengths and how to apply them to solve organizational challenges
  • Individual coaching and ongoing leadership development
  • Continued connections with participants after they're back on the job to refresh their skills and keep them energized
  • Programs tailored to different levels of management, with a specialty in training entry- and mid-level professionals who aspire to senior leadership positions

We offer a variety of programs to meet your organizational needs.

We have a particular expertise in designing programs tailored to different levels of management, providing a continuum of leadership growth and development.

We pride ourselves on providing learning opportunities to entry- and mid-level leaders that are too often reserved for senior leaders, creating a pipeline of capable and prepared leaders at every level.
