At The Center for Leadership Studies, We Build Leaders and Drive Behavior Change


For more than 50 years, The Center for Leadership Studies (CLS) has been at the forefront of leadership development training. CLS is the global home of the original Situational Leadership® Model — the most successful and widely adopted leadership development model available. Using this research-based model as the foundation, our influence-focused courses enable leaders to engage in effective performance conversations that build trust, increase productivity and drive behavior change.

Situational Leadership® is a Timeless, Repeatable Framework for Effective Influence

The Situational Leadership® Model is arguably the most recognized, utilized and effective influence tool in the history of the behavioral sciences. Since the 1960s, Situational Leadership® has proven to be a successful framework that allows leaders to match their behaviors to the performance needs of the individual or group that they are attempting to influence.
