Center for Leadership and Strategic Thinking

When the CLST was founded in 2009 we set as our mission to balance rigor and relevance in all of our work. Our vision is to be the country's preeminent academic source for education and research in the fields of leadership and strategic thinking. We aim to be a trusted partner to corporations and institutions seeking evidence-based leadership development interventions. Our mission is to advance the science and practice that connects leadership and strategic thinking for high performance impact.
