Cutting-edge training for professional leadership developers.

The Kansas Leadership Center offers intensive courses for leadership developers:

Advanced Leadership Development

Practice an experiential method that turns real-time interactions with a team or class into a case study for building leadership.

Leadership Coach

Your path to professional coaching or a coach approach to managing others: 60 hours of ICF approved training, practice and assessment.

Advanced Leadership Development Intensive

Do you need to build leadership capacity on your team or in your organization? Do you want new methods to help people practice leadership skills in real time? Looking for ways to make learning experiential? There is no better time to expand your skills with KLC’s advanced course in group dynamics and the Case-in-Point teaching method.

With KLC’s Advanced Leadership Development Intensive you develop capacity to:

  • Engage people in experiential learning about leadership using Case-in-Point.
  • Foster productive group dynamics within teams, organizations and coalitions.
  • Identify patterns and roles within a system for improved outcomes.
  • Leverage tension and navigate conflict in a group.
  • Use coaching skills to encourage people to disrupt patterns and create change.
  • Manage self when emotions run high.

When you add Case-in-Point to your toolkit, the people you teach, consult or manage will:

  • Recognize their own behavior patterns and the roles they typically play in systems.
  • Understand how they can influence group dynamics.
  • Exercise more leadership.
  • Make more progress and solve problems faster.

What is Case-in-Point?

Case-in-Point is an experiential method in which facilitators use a group as a case study to learn about and practice leadership in real time. It is a pillar of Adaptive Leadership, developed at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government. In classrooms and boardrooms, the Case-in-Point methods helps you co-create learning experiences with your participants.

What is the Advanced Leadership Development Intensive?

Our four-day program offers a rare opportunity to learn and practice incorporating this transformative technique in your teaching, training or consulting. You’ll connect with leadership development professionals from around the world and find a strong support system of Harvard-trained master-practitioners Tim Steffensmeier and Jill Hufnagel. This new virtual version of KLC’s Advanced Leadership Development Intensive gives you the training and assistance you need to make full use of this singular tool for leadership education and practice.

Who Should Attend?

  • Anyone who seeks to enhance the impact of experiential learning about leadership.
  • Professionals in leadership, organizational and human resource development.
  • Executives and managers seeking new tools to analyze and address leadership issues, including change management.
  • Internal and independent consultants.
  • Professionals familiar with the Adaptive Leadership framework or the KLC Leadership framework.

Through this immersive experience, you will:

  • Prepare to use Case-in-point virtually and in-person.
  • Practice using Case-in-Point in your teaching, training or consulting.
  • Get real time feedback from peers and KLC’s master practitioners.
  • Experiment with what works, and what doesn’t, in a supportive group environment.
  • Connect with other accomplished leadership development professionals.


Marty Linsky, co-founder of Cambridge Leadership Associates and co-author with Heifetz of the best-selling book, Leadership on the Line, highly recommends this program. “KLC is the perfect place to perfect your Case-in-Point delivery skills. Using the class as a case is a challenging and powerful method of enhancing people’s leadership capacity. And for me at least, doing it well is a life-long learning journey.”
