Leadership Culture Toolkit™

The resources found here support your use of the CCL toolset Leadership Culture Toolkit™. The kit is based on two key insights:

A healthy leadership culture is a key part of the success of any group, team, organization, or community. The ability of a collective to learn, grow, and change depends on the leadership culture of that collective. 


Leadership culture itself can evolve and even be intentionally transformed in ways that support collective success and the greater good.
