CUSTOM LEADERSHIP SOLUTIONS
Accelerate strategy with immersive learning experiences that are uniquely designed for your organization. No compromises, maximum impact.
You shouldn’t eat your dinner out of a box, so why should you build your business out of one? The time for pre-packaged, off-the-shelf solutions is over. Successful organizations realize their needs are too specific for common solutions. 

We pride ourselves on designing made-to-order solutions based on our proprietary needs assessment process. Taking an outside-in approach, we analyze the socioeconomic environment, industry trends, your organization and its businesses, your business strategy and your leadership and talent strategies, taking into account your unique culture and the developmental needs of your leaders. 

This approach yields Second Skin™ solutions that are a natural fit for your organization and drive change in the exact direction you want and your business demands.

WHY CUSTOM SOLUTIONS?
1. HAVE IT YOUR WAY

By choosing a made-to-order solution with CLG you can have it your way, all the way. From the front-end needs assessment, to the design, development, delivery and post-solutions assessment, we'll offer you a full plate of choices and collaboratively make decisions that fit your unique needs. We are here to build the ideal solution, no compromises.

2. ACCELERATE STRATEGY

While off-the-shelf solutions can be a convenient and cost-effective option to teach leaders fundamentals, only made-to-order solutions that are built around your organizations' most critical business challenges can accelerate your strategy. Taking a big cohort of your leaders on this journey together creates alignment and cohesion. The solution will feel like a natural extension to their work, while supporting and challenging them to have clarity around strategy and to discover the best ways on how to enact it in their realm of responsibility. Custom programs have the power to enable strategy and even accelerate it.

3. LOWER RISK

Most of your leaders will have been through various leadership and learning solutions by the time you are reading this. Many of them will grow cynical over "just another training". The time of your executives is very limited and wasting their time with a solution that doesn't feel like it speaks to their needs directly is risking what we call 'organ rejection'. The impact will be limited and word will spread, creating negative momentum around your initiative. When we create made-to-order solutions we insist on speaking to a diverse sample of the participants beforehand and include them in the design process. That way they feel heard and fully commit, while creating positive momentum in your organization and elevating your profile.

4. BUILD CAPABILITY

Not only will a custom solution build internal strategy & leadership capabilities, part of our mission is to teach your internal team of learning professionals 'how to fish' and work ourselves out of the job eventually. Over time we transfer our processes and knowledge to you and build long-term capabilities. In contrast to dependency-driven consulting firms, our business model is to teach you how to think strategically, implement strategy yourself and drive positive change. We are there to support you along the way.

5. SHAPE CULTURE

Shaping and strengthening your culture is a difficult task. The only way to embed any change that lasts, is to enroll a large cohort of your most influential leaders from across the organization in a shared experience that feels natural, while pushing the envelope in the desired direction. Creating a shared understanding for the strategy and the specific values that will drive its execution can go a long way. Only custom solutions that are contextualized and derived from your business, leadership and talent strategy have the power to be accepted and drive change that sticks.

6. DELIVER GLOBALLY

We work with many multinational corporations that desire a global approach. They need a solution that sends the same message everywhere we deliver, but in all kinds of languages and cultural contexts. As a multicultural firm with a wide-spanning network of senior advisors across the globe we can translate and contextualize materials from the get-go. We want to support you in your efforts to create that "One Culture", while still respecting local needs and customs.
