Elevate Your Leadership Value and Impact

Leadership is a profession, and it’s a profession of a performance art. We can’t understand our way to playing a piano, and we can’t understand our way to leadership, either. We must go beyond new techniques, tools, and models. We must refine and enhance our leadership skills in action to be a leader, not just know more about leadership. 

Developing skills in a performance art requires practice, but it requires the right practice. At the Institute for Generative Leadership (IGL) we have spent over forty years exploring and developing the practices that enable people to elevate their leadership value and impact. With thousands of graduates and results we have developed a path of development designed for the practicing leader, manager, and executive. 

The IGL standard for relevant leadership learning is to identify the actions of a leader that we can see, do, learn with practice, and that produces the desired results. That’s what we mean by a “generative” interpretation – it shows you how to achieve results, including improved teamwork, managing breakdowns and moods, value creation, self-care, developing others, and learning the key conversations of different levels of leadership scale.

Action learning is not conceptual learning with case studies. It’s learning by doing In your job, your work, and your life. It includes the full human being, yourself and others, in the human capacity to create the future, share it, and make it happen. This goes far beyond the mechanical demands of doing and doing more.

The IGL leadership development path has been proven to provide what is needed to develop skills, not just ideas, that produce new results in our three one-year program steps. Why one-year steps? It takes time to develop actual skills through practice, and we support your practicing in your work, leadership, and life with personal and team coaching and projects for actual results. 


Thousands of professionals, from managers to executives, and coaches to consultants, have learned new skills to support them in their career path and organizations. Here are just a few of them that have produced exceptional results through their study and practice with the Institute
