At Third Floor Research,
we are asking the question: What kind of leadership does it take to tackle challenges in an increasingly changing, complex and unpredictable world?
The KLC Path
EMBARK ON YOUR LEADERSHIP JOURNEY
Anyone can lead, anytime, and anywhere. Our leadership path will teach you how. Change the way you manage yourself and mobilize others. Transform your leadership skills and become more effective in solving problems with our three-step leadership development path.
What makes the Kansas Leadership Center different?
Leadership is a skill that can be developed through learning and practice. The principles and competencies covered at KLC can help anyone hone the skills needed to successfully confront problems that exist in organizations and communities. KLC is different in that it focuses on helping people from all positions, backgrounds and sectors learn the same four competencies of leadership.
We believe leadership is an activity, not a position, and anyone can learn to exercise leadership at any time. KLC has trained thousands of people worldwide around these four competencies which help people better diagnose problems and situations, manage themselves, energize others around a common purpose and intervene in ways that are more skillful and successful.
