We’re centered on you.

At Lake Forest Center for Leadership, we offer practical leadership development and business education solutions designed for immediate and lasting impact.

We pride ourselves on being 100% practitioner-led, highly trusted and impactful. We share the expertise we have gained from thousands of successful students, business leaders, and organizations.


From length to program structure to delivery method, we work with you to make it work.


Our team is made up of actual business leaders dedicated to developing and delivering learnable programming that works.


No matter the size or scope of your project, we make it a priority to make our team an extension of yours. 


Your project is important to us, and so are you. We’re ready to help however we can.


How are your programs delivered?

All our programs are centered around the needs and priorities of adult learners. They can be delivered in virtual, in-person, or hybrid models to best meet the needs of the group.

How big or small can your programs be scaled?

From a one-time focused session on a high-impact topic, to a comprehensive multi-year, multi-cohort program aligned across all levels of an organization… we’ve done it. Our collaborative team is results-oriented and will work with you to meet your goals within your budget.

What levels of leaders do you work with?

Exceptional leadership can – and should – be found in all levels of an organization and is not found in a particular job title or position. We work with people throughout all stages of their careers, including individual contributors, first-time supervisors, experienced managers, senior-level leaders, and C-suite executives.

What is the average turnaround time?

Ideal lead time averages four to six weeks, though it depends on the scope and complexity of the program you need. Our dedicated program managers work closely with clients to align every detail and meet key deadlines.

How do you incorporate our values into your programming?

Every program we deliver is a full collaboration between our team of business leaders and our clients. We have dedicated space within our core programs to incorporate your company’s culture and values in order to maximize the long-term impact and results.

How are you different than your competitors?

We make it smart and practical for our clients to leverage our resources, expertise, and capabilities as an extension of their own team. We’re with you every step of the way to help your organization meet its goals.
