The emergence of The Consortium for Leadership Development sprung from the hope of a group of trailblazers who believed that they could both find and cultivate the next wave of leaders. The emergence of new business leaders who share the same characteristics of Resilience and Excellence. The emergence of business leaders who have vision, who build trust and use good judgment to positively impact an organization’s bottom line. This is the purest purpose of the program. This is why it came to be. Simply, The Consortium for Leadership Development (CLD) is an association of high-profile corporate executives, entrepreneurs, and educators who have joined forces to create a training program for high-potential individuals and emerging business leaders; leaders, who will be able to guide this nation and the world in years to come.
