Elevate Your Leadership Training with OpenSesame Plus and the Center for Creative Leadership

Modern manager challenges deserve modern training solutions

Exciting news for organizations looking to supercharge their leadership training initiatives: We’ve just added the Center for Creative Leadership (CCL) to our growing list of OpenSesame Plus publishers.

At OpenSesame, we’re all about empowering organizations of all sizes and industries to thrive through comprehensive online learning. Our goal is to ensure that you have the right courses at your fingertips, aligned perfectly with your core competencies and business goals. Now, with the inclusion of CCL in OpenSesame Plus, we’re taking your leadership training to a whole new level.

Comprehensive, trusted leadership development

For over five decades, the Center for Creative Leadership has stood at the forefront of leadership development, earning a reputation synonymous with excellence. Their courses are thoughtfully designed to address the unique challenges and skills required at every organizational level, delivering practical, real-world solutions to modern leadership challenges.

CCL has courses for managers just starting out, managing from the middle, or running the show. These trainings are packed with valuable resources, including animated videos, audio narration, inline activities, supplemental materials, and post-assessments. By incorporating CCL courses into your training regimen through OpenSesame Plus, you’re providing your managers with the tools they need to lead effectively in today’s complex environment.

Today, your leaders need your help

Leadership isn’t just a buzzword—it’s the glue that holds teams together and steers organizations toward success. Managers are tasked with fostering productivity, collaboration, engagement, and equity at the team level while embodying their company’s culture and values. In today’s working world, effective leadership is non-negotiable.

But consider this: Nearly 20 percent of emerging leaders’ direct reports have contemplated leaving their roles due to their leader’s ineffectiveness. And a staggering 42 percent of new leaders feel they’ve had inadequate professional development for their current positions. When you recognize how high the stakes are, there’s clearly a need for modernized leadership training. 

The challenges managers face today are intense; the pandemic, the shift to remote work, and the partial return to the office have placed unprecedented demands on them. They’ve become the translators and scapegoats, often having to navigate between a team that feels undervalued or unheard, and higher ups anxious about an uncertain economic outlook. To successfully chart a course forward, your leaders need support, guidance, and the right training to excel in their pivotal roles. 

That’s why we couldn’t be more thrilled to welcome the Center for Creative Leadership to the OpenSesame Plus family. Leadership matters, and with OpenSesame Plus and CCL, you’re well-equipped to lead the way.
