The Center for Leadership Studies Unveils New Learning Platform, Content and Modalities at ATD 2019

Cary, NC – May 20, 2019 – The Center for Leadership Studies (CLS), the global home of Situational Leadership®, announced several new components and enhancements to their curriculum and also unveiled MyCLS, a new proprietary learning system that expands the reach of Situational Leadership® and allows organizations to access courses and materials regardless of location or modality.

In conjunction with the release of MyCLS, The Center for Leadership Studies also announced a new “virtual” offering for their flagship program, Situational Leadership®: Building Leaders. The new delivery method broadens the ability to experience the Situational Leadership®: Building Leaders course in any format — instructor-led, online, blended and now virtual — to continue CLS’ strategy of meeting growing global dynamics with flexible, learner-centered modalities.

Finally, with the ever-growing need to ensure that information learned in training advances behavior change in the workplace, CLS published “The Four Moments of Truth,” by Dr. Sam Shriver. “The Four Moments of Truth,” which has shown an almost 80% increase in learning retention when used, outlines a framework for training transfer that companies can easily employ.

The Center for Leadership Studies’ CEO, Maureen Shriver, said, “We are thrilled to announce these major new releases that we built with our clients and the global workforce in mind, and the 2019 ATD Conference is the perfect venue to do so. Companies face increasing challenges building and maintaining a cohesive, global training program, as well as ensuring the training results in positive changes to the company. MyCLS, Situational Leadership®: Building Leaders and ‘The Four Moments of Truth’ help companies face these challenges head on.”

Shriver added, “We continue to experience tremendous growth as the global home of Situational Leadership®, and we must now focus on delivering our world-class content in ways the modern learner can access with convenience.”
