GISC leadership training ranges from short overview courses to intensive leadership development. Depending on your leadership experience and training you may want to start with our three day overview program. Others with highly demanding leadership responsibilities enroll in our intensive Leadership in the 21st Century, then return for annual conferences or engage their entire organization in adopting GISC's Gestalt leadership model by joining our Leadership Consortium.

We also feature other workshops and conferences on specific topic areas. Many of our leaders at all levels have found great value in the programs we have designed for consultants and coaches so you may want to explore our practitioner pages, as well as individual development programs.

Please call our office for assistance in determining which program will best meet your needs.

“I have taken a lot of courses that have filled my head with a lot of wonderful ideas. Over time my recollection wanes and the course impact diminishes. Not so with the Center. The program I participated in at the Center has changed me. I am a different and better person. I am more effective at what I do and I have greater impact on the people around me. Because of the experiential nature, I cannot forget this program, it has become part of who I am.”
